Gun owners nationwide are applauding the patriotic, though accidental, exercise of Second Amendment rights by 8-year-old Timothy Cummings Tuesday.
"Timothy is a symbol of American heroism," said NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre from Cummings' bedside at Norfolk General Hospital, where the boy is in serious but stable condition from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. "While praying for his recovery, we should all thank God that his inalienable right to keep and bear arms has not been infringed."
It goes on like that, but the point is clear. How much more is it going to take for the pro-gun crowd to back up a step or two? I hate to say it, but I think a lot more.
The stubborn position of not wanting to be inconvenienced is causing suffering and death.
The nonsensical insistence that owning guns is necessary for self defense and is therefore bestowed by god is causing suffering and death.
The paranoid delusion that gun control activists really want to ban and confiscate all guns is causing suffering and death.
