Guns: a canard tossed out by the left in DC shooting – Charlotte Observer

I fault left’s ramped up rhetoric, not guns

In response to “ ‘Thoughts and prayers’ are meaningless. To stop mass shootings, we need to do this” (June 15 charlotteobserver.com):

Op-ed writer Marcos Breton said we are all cowards unless we raise our voices against the proliferation of guns in America.

As always, these canards tossed out by the left just insult more freedom-loving Americans who remember that the assault weapons ban did nothing to lower gun crime.

If anything, the heightened political rhetoric of the left contributed to this deranged individual, not the gun.
