Sen. Shaheen And The Choir Stupidiful: Guns Inspire Murder

Wet sidewalks cause rain. Snowmen cause snow. Flowers cause summer. Zombies cause television shows. Guns cause murder.

Liberal truth in a nutshell.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, of gun-toting New Hampshire, added her voice to the choir stupitiful (that’s a portmanteau word meaning “pitifully stupid”) when she said:

“Somebody who is buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting,” she said. “They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things and we need to recognize that and address it.”

Add that to Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin’s remark that no self-respecting sportsman in his home state of Illinois would ever use an ‘AR-47’ to hunt deer. As the author of that piece pointed out, Durbin is correct. Nobody at all would use an AR-47 for anything at all, since it doesn’t exist.

You’d think these two have never walked on anything but engineered concrete. A deer would frighten either of them into a fetal ball. You’d also think that there’s no other creature that’s hunted or shot for any reason other than deer.

That coyote taking the rancher’s sheep? Nope, call the police (try it, see what they’ll tell you). The black bear about to charge my campsite? Call the park ranger. (Good luck with that! And by the way, shooting an AR-15 at a grizzly bear is a good way to piss it off unless you get a heart or direct head shot.)

Liberals live in a fantasy world. Kimberly Ross made the point very clearly at RedState.

If estimates are correct, and AR-15 ownership is in the 5,000,000 to 10,000,000 range, and we weigh this against Shaheen’s claim of bad motives directly connected to AR-15 ownership, then the number of mass shootings should be astronomical. If she really believed what she was saying, why would she even step foot outside?

Behold the left’s field-stripped logic in its glory: Guns, by themselves, commit crimes; or, guns exert an evil force, by their proximity to humans (except soldiers and law enforcement, with exceptions), which compels these humans to murder.

I just checked my gun closet. They either heard me coming and quickly returned themselves to exactly where I left them and returned their ammunition to its designated place, or I just broke up a mass murder plot before they seized my mind.

Or liberals are stupid about guns. I’ll let you decide for yourself.
