The latest gem from America’s hysterical left comes from Connecticut’s junior senator and gun control made man, Chris Murphy. In response to the Trumpian kerfuffle of the day, Murphy opened his pie hole on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to announce that he opposes any screening of immigrants seeking entry to the United States. At the same time, though, he’s a big supporter of more checks for Americans seeking to avail themselves of their Second Amendment rights.
But wait, it gets better. According to Breitbart, the tone-deaf legislator proclaimed,
So, I would go towards a sort of European bent in looking at screening. And then maybe let’s just make sure that if folks get to this country, and we suspect them of having connections to terrorism, that they shouldn’t be able to get an assault weapon. That’s a huge liability in our law today.
Because as we all know, relying on gun control (or any laws, for that matter) to prevent Islamist-inspired attacks has worked out so well for our friends across the Atlantic. Never mind our experience here.
So the Murphy prescription for dealing with terrorist wannabes: somehow prevent them from getting their hands on a so-called “assault weapons” once they’re here. And how does he suggest we do that? To a radical civilian disarmament advocate like Senator Murphy, it’s obvious. By disarming all Americans, of course!
And the left is still baffled by the election of Donald Trump.
