Help A Bigoted, Gun-Hating Liberal Win an AK-47

Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post Writers Group has penned an interesting essay. Titled, “Help a card-carrying liberal win an AK-47,” it shows the sort of hateful rhetoric we gunnies have come to expect from the self-styled tolerant, inclusive, liberal elite.

Shall-Issue Prognosticators’ Crystal Balls Were Cloudy
