Not three seconds elapsed after the initial reports of a mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, before the hearse chasers of the Left leapt into the fray, via Twitter of course, to condemn the NRA.
So, let’s see if I got this straight:
- California has the strictest gun-control laws on the books
- Assault-weapon-style rifles are illegal to bring into the state
- Assault-weapon-style rifles are illegal to be owned in the state
- Murder and assault with a deadly weapon is illegal in California
So, when a Muslim man and his wife arrive at an event in full body armor, bearing illegally-obtained and -possessed assault-weapon-style rifles, and shoot 31 people, 14 of whom die, and none of them armed themselves, this is the fault of the National Rifle Association? How? If California’s strict gun control laws couldn’t prevent this from happen, what can the NRA be expected to do about it?
One very important question is where did Syed Farook get his weapons? Farook and his wife were both carrying legally-purchased semi-auto pistols, but the two semi-auto rifles could not have been bought legally in California, nor bought out-of-state and brought legally into California. The Los Angeles Times identified them as a “DPMS Model A15 and a Smith & Wesson M&P15”.
Why did this apparently soft-spoken, well-liked, and diligent worker, who was recently married and a new father, shoot up a couple dozen of his co-workers?
And why didn’t California’s strict gun control laws stop him?
Perhaps he just wanted to kill people.
In the name of Allah, of course.
Obama, the hearse-chaser-in-chief, had this to say about this incident:
“Obviously, our hearts go out to the victims and the families,” he said. “The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.”
Oh, except for maybe France, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Egypt, Israel and so on. Anywhere there are Muslim extremists. The President clearly cannot count, and he also clearly cannot see what is obvious, that France’s extremely strict gun control didn’t stop the Charlie Hebdo shooters, and didn’t stop the Paris shooters and bombers even more recently. And what about those 10,000 Syrian refugees you want to allow to come to the United States, Mr. President? With no verifiable way of determining which are terrorists now, or which will become terrorists later?
