A disgruntled Erick Erickson, of Red State, took to Twitter in order to display his anger The New York Times and its headline that he disagrees with. How? By shooting it SEVEN times.
Yup, now that’s a responsible gun owner.
The New York Times article that specifically set this ticking time bomb off was aimed at the gun epidemic in our country. The writer rightfully points out how irresponsible and outrageous it is that “civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.”
Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.
Not one thing written in this article should’ve pissed someone off to the point of shooting at it, but then again, right-wing gun nuts are incapable of reason.
Only a person in serious denial would claim there isn’t a gun epidemic and then shoot a newspaper because he lacks the ability to express his thoughts like an adult. He not only proves that the need to put stricter laws in place to keep guns out of the hands of insane people like himself, but also displays a perfect example of how the right’s “good guys with guns” lack impulse control.
Unfortunately for Erickson, the people on Twitter took this as an opportunity to troll him and it was amazing.
While these responses are quite comical, let’s not forget the dangers of Republican ammosexuals and their inability to understand that while people are the ones making the decision to shoot, the easy access to weapons intended for war, is a serious problem.
