The frothy, gun-obsessed right need to come up with a better argument than “tell me how gun laws would’ve prevented this.”
That is absolutely the most acutely illogical, ridiculous, brain-dead counterpoint to reasonable firearm laws ever. Ever! No offense to those who repeat it – Only to the exceedingly dumb motherfucker who came up with it. Pardon my francais, I’m a former sailor (i.e. military), and that’s the way I roll. They’re words – Get over it. You’ll recover, unlike the dead and crippled in Las Vegas.
Using that horribly flawed logic, states that mandate background checks for childcare providers should never have passed those laws because, you know – What good do they do? I mean, child molesters gonna molest, and child rapers gonna rape, right? So why have laws? Sure – It might stop *some* rapers & molesters, but fuck it. If it doesn’t stop all of them, what’s the harm? Kids are resilient, right? They’ll get over it. Besides, what’s a little forcible sodomy between an unwilling child and a deranged adult? It builds character! Fuck yes. Makes me wish I would’ve got a good old fashioned cornholing as a youth.
Re-evaluate your morals and your life if you disagree.
