E. J. Dionne tries to use guilt to get Republicans to go along with gun laws. In “Will the GOP block background checks” he writes, “The gun lobby seems to want the rest of the world to look upon the United States of America as a nation so crazed about guns ...”
I don’t give a flip what the rest of the world thinks about us! Most of them would be speaking a language other than their own if not for us. I take zero responsibility for the Adam Lanzas and Jared Loughners of this world.
Dionne seems to think because I chose to exercise my Second Amendment rights, I am aligned with murderers. If that were true, then everyone who owns a car is aligned with the drunken driver who kills innocents.
I have owned guns for more than 45 years, I have killed no one with them and they have killed no one. Lastly, none of the “common sense” gun laws now being discussed would have stopped either of these sick individuals, and neither would limiting my Constitutional rights.
