Geez, this is just pathetic.
Mark the occasion well, for this is the week in which the gun control movement became so desperate to restore the balance of the firearms debate in favor of groundless emotion that it recruited al-Qaeda as an ally in its fight.
The NRO links to an insipid item from a Buzzfeed cub reporter.
Even Al-Qaeda was arguing that America’s background check system was weak and made guns easily obtainable. In a video released in 2011, Adam Gadahn an American-born spokesman for Al Qaeda argued guns could be easily obtained by buying guns at a gun shows where there would not be a background check.
So see, you gun nuts, even al Qaeda thinks you’re all crazy.
More from Cooke:
Even if this were true, acting on it would be rotten. Try saying the following sentence: “even al-Qaeda thinks America’s gun laws are crazy.” Now try a different unalienable right. How about, “Even al-Qaeda thinks America’s free speech laws are crazy!”? Or, “Even al-Qaeda thinks America’s freedom of religion is crazy!”? Or, maybe, “Bloomberg and other assembly-control advocates have long argued that not following people around with drones offers a dangerous opening for would-be terrorists to hatch plots.” Does that sound reasonable? I rather think not.
It sounds desperate, if anything.
