Fish Wrap: More Guns Equals More Killing

Today’s freakout anti-gun screed from the NY Times

Indeed, the N.R.A.’s solution to the expansion of gun violence in America has been generally to advocate for the more widespread deployment and carrying of guns.

I recently visited some Latin American countries that mesh with the N.R.A.’s vision of the promised land, where guards with guns grace every office lobby, storefront, A.T.M., restaurant and gas station. It has not made those countries safer or saner.

Despite the ubiquitous presence of “good guys” with guns, countries like Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia and Venezuela have some of the highest homicide rates in the world.

How super awesome that the examples used are third word shitholes developing nations which have been going through war, armed strife, revolutions, load with gangs and drug lords, etc, for decades. I guess the Elizabeth Rosenthal fails to notice those conditions, and that being armed also saves lives.

But, hey, I’m wondering if Elizabeth will advocate for the Tines to get rid of their own armed guards?

Except, it is because those places are SH*T holes, over-run with evil, that there is an emergency need for the good guys to be armed. In those places, the evil outnumbers the good. If it wasn’t for those guard and their guns, evil would have an easier time destroying good.

But this once again, confirms that liberals are completely incapable of seeing any difference between evil and good. Note their love affair with all tyrants, all socialist dictators, holocaust deniers, and those wishing to destroy freedom, capitalism, and Israel.

Exactly. Yet, Liberals still won’t give up their own guns.
