Too precious...

From the VPC:

Instead of facing repeal, D.C.'s laws should be a model for the nation. How is it possible to think that Americans are free when they must fear being gunned down at their local mall, church, school or workplace because most of the U.S. refuses to implement effective gun laws?

When DC's murder rate is 5 times that of the rest of the nation. Yep, I want to see over 85,000 murders per year. And MD has "much weaker laws". Sure, in comparison to outright bans.

And the usual spin:

Likewise, after 112 people were killed in 11 mass shootings in a decade, Australia collected and destroyed 700,000 firearms determined to be designed to kill many people quickly. Australia has not seen another mass shooting while its firearm homicide and firearm suicide rates have declined.

But total suicide and homicide rates stayed the same. That sure worked.

Along with the usual lies of "AK-47 Assault Rifle".

I've noticed the whole "2nd Amendment is racist" thing pop up more often as of late. I haven't looked to deeply into it but I'm sure it's "Strong Scholarship" along the lines of Bellisiles.

I'm also wondering who's computer they typed this on as the VPC can barely afford their electric bill.

She is right on one thing. The DC gun laws have saved "countless lives". Zero.
