Morning Joe: 'Gun Free Zones are Stupid'
Anytime there's an "even the liberal MSNBC..." blog post, there's a 90% chance it's on Morning Joe, and a 90% chance it's Joe Scarborough.
That being said, even (a portion) of leftist MSNBC thinks gun free zones are stupid...
"Why don't you, on college campuses where you put 'gun free zones' where you have 30,000-40,000 students, why don't you put up a sign that says 'free to shoot?' So I guys who is going to go and do harm at a college is going to say, 'Oh. It's a gun free zone? I have to take my Bushmaster back...hey, the pipe bombs! We can't bring them on campus.' I think advertising gun free zones is a genuinely stupid idea that invites bad people to do really bad things."
Of course, if you hear the leftists on Morning Joe who, like most leftists, don't know how to discuss guns without setting straw men on fire, they take Joe Scarborough's criticisms of "gun free zones" as proof he wants to weaponize college campuses and give everyone a Glock at Freshman orientation. Instead, he points out how the shooter at Virginia Tech - a gun free zone - went from room to room shooting people, and how that probably wouldn't have happened at, say, the University of Alabama. Well played, Mr Scarborough.
I don't know how many times we have to go over this. Whenever a shooting occurs at the hands of a violent felon, leftists (as those seen on this panel) demand that we implement better gun control. Then they go on a press tour to pat themselves on the back. As though no one's ever thought of it before.
"I got it! Just ban guns!"
Listen, this isn't complicated to understand. Violent criminals are often cowards. Cowards follow the path of least resistance. If you're a violent criminal, the path of least resistance will undoubtedly be the path that guarantees an unarmed populace. Joe Scarborough brought that up simply and effectively. How did they rebut? They didn't. Seriously, watch the clip. Nobody offered anything even remotely resembling a substantiated counter-argument. They just throw a fit.
"I DO NOT LIKE YOUR OPINIONS!"
If leftists want to have a debate, let's have a debate! Let's have both sides present their facts, both sides offer their opinions and allow the public to determine who has the better rationale for their argument. Instead, leftists hide behind executive actions and "you don't care about children" rhetoric. Why?
Because leftists, you're losing.
