I am plenty fed-up with the post-Sandy Hook push for civilian disarmament. What does one have to do with the other? Clearly, restricting legal gun ownership will do nothing to stop a madman from enacting his homicidal fury. Clearly, an armed defense is the best defense against a spree killer. Or someone with a bomb strapped to his back. Yes there is that . . .
With all this talk about denying mentally ill maniacs guns to kill kids the country has lost sight of the threat of terrorism. It’s not for nothing All the President’s Men delete the Fort Hood massacre from their list of unconscionable “mass shootings.”
Lest we forget, Muslim terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people and wounded 29. So . . .what if Adam Lanza had been a member of Al-Qaeda?
I’ll tell you what: he wouldn’t have been acting alone; the death toll would have been much higher. And we sure as hell wouldn’t be talking about civilian disarmament. Nor should we be. Am I wrong?
