It’s interesting to me that creepy shill for the gun manufacturers Wayne LaPierre is allowed to get away with giving a crackpot fantasy rant suggesting that people need semi-automatic weapons (read: assault weapons) Why? Well, obviously if something like Katrina happens again, decent people (if you know what I mean) must be able to defend themselves against roving bands of those people (if you know what I mean). I, for one, can’t think of anything that would have helped New Orleans more than thousands of assault weapons in the hands of clearly paranoid right wing loons.
I think a major difference between normal people and deranged right wing loons is that most people prefer their first-person shooter fantasies in the form of video game or movie zombie or alien invasions. RWLs prefer their first-person shooter fantasies in the form of absurd scenarios involving waves of brown people. More importantly, they invest thousands of dollars in weapons in preparation for exactly that. A collapse of society would show everyone.
“They said I was mad to have my 9-year-old shoot human silhouette targets, but who’s laughing now?”
Unfortunately, no decent human being can take any pleasure when such a parent is gunned down by the same child immediately prior to his murdering 20 small children and 5 other adults.
