Blame "Guns From America" !

Those loathers of the 2nd amendment, slowly realizing that they will never ursurp private gun ownership law by blaming all of America's ills on legally-armed citizens, have come up with a new tactic: Blame of the world's ills on private gun ownership!

Well, we all know this one:

U.S. guns bolster Mexico violence
... Combat-style rifles are pouring into Mexico, thanks to the end of the U.S. Assault Weapons Ban in 2004

Bored of that old saw? Well, here's a "new" one, kind of - the location has changed but the song remains the same:

Guns from America fuel Jamaica's gang wars Mexican smugglers, Jamaican ones depend on lax U.S. gun laws, corrupt customs inspectors and front men acting as buyers.
Florida gun laws make it relatively easy to buy a legal firearm....

I'm waiting for this:

Guns from America cause global warming

No, not quite, but we do find a kernel of truth there:

For liberal elites, belief in gun control and global warming has taken on the character of religious faith. We have sinned (by hoarding guns or driving SUVs); we must atone (by turning in our guns or recycling); we must repent (by supporting gun control or cap and trade schemes). You may notice that the "we" in question is usually the great mass of ordinary American citizens.

That's right! After all, this doesn't sound dogmatic, does it?

Arming teachers is also a bad idea. Do we really want teachers shooting at students?

But this does:

Guns from America Fuels and Bolsters the Destruction of National Parks

A reckless amendment that could allow people to carry loaded guns, including AK-47s, in national parks was passed by the Congress....

Nice attempt by the elites to tie potential domestic violence (against trees and bears) and unrelated drug-related violence together into a big anti-2nd Amendment push.

Won't work. What do they say again about "cold, dead hands"?
