They say that insanity is the process where you keep trying to do the same thing over and over again, even though it fails each time.
The liberal, leftwing response to the tragic and horrific mass killing by an insane Islamic terrorist, who found comfort and support from that religion for his murderous ideas, is thus a good illustration of insanity.
- Solemn Obama calls for gun control action and DOESN’T link Orlando nightclub terror attack to Islam in address to nation
- U.S. Senate Democrats discussing new gun control push
- ACLU Lawyers Blame Christians For Orlando Terror Attack
- Hillary Clinton Wants to Reinstate Assault Weapons Ban in Wake of Orlando Attack
three four examples, but there will be more. [I have added the fourth because it is so expected and must be noted.] The simple fact is that the terrorist in Orlando had gotten his guns legally in a state that has numerous gun control laws specifically designed to prevent such a man from becoming armed. Those laws did nothing to protect innocent people from him.
One decent person armed in that nightclub, however, would have stopped him in his tracks. Unfortunately, according to Florida’s same gun control laws, that nightclub was also a gun free zone. Only criminals and terrorists were allowed to be armed, because they are the only ones who don’t care what the law says.
As Ted Cruz noted in his statement concerning the Orlando attack. “Our nation is at war.” And you can’t win a war by disarming yourself.
