I know. You’re shocked. How could a progressive superstar possibly be a hypocrite on gun control? I mean, other than the whole armed guards thing. Well, here ya go. “I think the best response to the use of poison gas by President Bashar al-Assad is not a cruise missile attack on Assad’s forces, but an increase in the training and arming of the Free Syrian Army — including the antitank and antiaircraft weapons it’s long sought.” That would be flat earther Thomas L. Friedman writing in this morning’s New York Times under the headline Arm and Shame. The same Tommy Boy who wrote . . .
In my world, you don’t get to call yourself ‘pro-life’ and be against common-sense gun control — like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater.
So providing fully automatic guns and anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to “rebels” in a seething caldron of Islamic extremism is OK, but “allowing” Americans to exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms is “anti-life.” In kinky Friedman’s world. In case you didn’t know.
