A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“Throughout most of America, you can go into a gun store and buy an AR-15 just like you’d go into a Starbucks and buy a cup of coffee.” — UCLA School of Law professor Adam Winkler, lying about the ease of buying a firearm.
“The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions—loud like a bomb—gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.” — New York Daily News reporter Gersh Kuntzman on his grossly overblown experience of allegedly shooting an AR-15 (perhaps he accidentally shot a Barrett .50-caliber instead).
“Ammo used in AR-15/M-16 is banned by Geneva Convention. It enters the body, spins & explodes. Show the crime scene photos & the NRA is over.” — Tweet by dishonest hack film director Michael Moore, proving once again he has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to firearms.
“The San Bernardino terrorist attack wasn’t stopped by California’s so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban. The gun ban in Brussels didn’t prevent the terrorist attack there. And France’s strict gun control didn’t stop the two attacks in Paris, committed with fully automatic rifles and grenades. Repeating the same thing but expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. Law-abiding gun owners are tired of being blamed for the acts of madmen and terrorists.” — NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox on the reaction of gun-ban politicians and the anti-gun media following the Orlando nightclub terror attack.
“Let us stay focused on the fact that someone hated gay people so much they were ready to kill or injure so many. A human being did this … I say again, GUNS did not do this.” — Gwendolyn Patton, spokesperson for the Pink Pistols, an LGBT pro-gun group.
