After reading Glen McAdoo’s article blaming guns, NRA, and Republicans’ for the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women and children, in the U.S., I have come to the conclusion that he just likes to spread nonfactual nonsense.
First of all, guns, like ice picks, shovels, kitchen knives, and even bottles of poison, are inanimate objects and by themselves are of no threat, unless they are used by someone to create mayhem or murder. A firearm cannot suddenly jump up and shoot someone by itself. Secondly, Mr. McAdoo probably isn’t aware of the fact that there are as many Democrats and Liberals in the NRA, as there are Republicans. I would like to draw to Mr. McAdoo’s attention that President Abraham Lincoln was shot and killed by a Democrat, John Wilkes Booth, A radical left-wing socialist shot and killed President Kennedy, A registered Democrat shot and wounded President Reagan. In 1984 a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 22 people at a McDonald’s restaurant. In 1991 George Hennard, another disgruntled Democrat, killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria, in Houston. In 2007 a registered Democrat, Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people at Virginia Tech. In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat, Jared Lee Loghner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others. In 2011 a registered Democrat, James Holmes, went to a movie theatre and shot and killed 12 people. In 2013 a registered Democrat, Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people in a school shooting.
Mr. McAdoo, it appears that Democrats shouldn’t be allowed to own firearms since they don’t know how to handle them safely.
Possibly they should have taken a NRA gun safety class, taught by Republicans?
