So of course Obama wants them all to come…
At the Democratic debate on Tuesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders bragged about getting a “D-minus” from the National Rifle Association (which was also Lincoln Chafee’s GPA in high school).
Nonetheless, Hillary Clinton attacked Sanders for having voted against an insane bill that would have held gun manufacturers and sellers legally liable for the behavior of anyone who uses one of their guns in a crime.
I would be open to such a law — but only after we pass a law holding psychiatrists liable for crimes committed by their patients; lawyers for crimes committed by their clients; and sanctuary cities for crimes committed by the illegal immigrants they released in violation of federal law.
Gun dealers are a lot more careful about whom they sell guns to than psychiatrists, lawyers and sanctuary cities are about the criminals they loose on the public.
In several recent mass shootings, the psycho was at least temporarily delayed when gun shops refused to sell him guns — such as the Colorado gun range owner who put his whole staff on red alert in case James Holmes ever wandered in, simply on the basis of having heard Holmes’ strange voicemail message.
As Sanders himself once said, holding gun sellers liable for the crimes of their customers would be like holding “a hammer company responsible if somebody beats somebody over the head with a hammer.” (As happened to Lincoln Chafee.)
To cheers from the Democratic audience, Hillary denounced Sanders for his vote against imposing unprecedented liability on gun makers, saying, “It’s time the entire country stood up against the NRA.”
Sanders bowed and scraped, finally saying he’d “take another look” at the gun bill.
Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley bragged about passing the strictest gun-control laws in the country (which explains why Baltimore is such a safe city). Asked which “enemy” he was proudest of, O’Malley said: “The NRA.” (Loud applause — especially from the radical Muslims in the audience!)
