In the debate over gun control, it would appear that the National Rifle Association (NRA) and their many supporters are the biggest snowflakes on the planet.
A perfect example was seen Monday morning when NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch appeared on Fox & Friends and attacked weekly comedy show Saturday Night Live for advocating that gun laws in the United States be strengthened:
“I’m not going to take any kind of firearm lecture from people who clearly don’t either own them or have never even fired them. And don’t even understand the concept of self-defense either.”
When host Steve Doocy noted that many Americans have a problem with the large number of guns in the possession of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, Loesch replied:
“Something I would ask them is, what is the correct number of guns? I haven’t heard anyone say an American should only have blank number of guns or one gun or no guns. Actually, I’ve heard a lot of people say no guns.”
Then Loesch went on an angry, unhinged rant when it came to the very idea of gun control:
“I’m curious to see how they would propose that to work because you would need firearms to go door-to-door in houses all over the United States to millions of Americans and confiscate said firearms. To that point, there are millions of Americans all throughout the country — some of them, yes, even own 40 firearms. And you know what? They’ve been owning these 40 firearms for decades!”
Finally, Loesch resorted to every ammosexual’s favorite weapon of all: Fear. She railed about “evil” in the world:
“And that’s the thing. Evil lives among us and I’ve said this before, it’s real. You have to deal with evil. And I certainly want to be prepared to deal with evil or with a monster with the ability to defend myself as opposed to not having that ability to defend myself!”
If evil lives among us and is such a threat, why in the hell would you want to make it easy for evildoers to acquire a weapon with which he or she could more easily commit an act of violence against you? Sadly, the NRA has nothing but lies and propaganda to contribute to this discussion. And that makes them completely irrelevant.
