People Kill People

CNN’s Wolf Blizter has asked Bernie Sanders for an apology to the victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting because he didn’t support a bill for gun control legislation. The daughter of the killed elementary school’s principal said “you owe her and the other victims’ families an apology” to Sanders. The gun control bill would make it legal to hold gun shop owners financially liable in instances of shooting related deaths. Sanders responded that he did not support the liability law because he didn’t believe that gun shop owners should be held responsible after a legal and lawful transaction, regardless of what happens later, like Sandy Hook.

Um…hello. We’ve just been picked up by a tornado and sent to Oz. I mean, since when did an ultra-liberal like Bernie Sanders say things that made sense and the country cries for an apology? Let’s follow this little Yellow Brick Road and see where the insanity takes us:

Why not also sue the companies who manufactured the guns as well? Guns don’t kill people, bullets kill people. So let’s sue the bullet manufacturers too. Knives kill people, so is Target, Walmart, and other locations liable? Don’t let Ford and Toyota off the hook either, because plenty of children are killed in DUI accidents every year.

The shooter in the Sandy Hook incident was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. He had a long history of mental illness. He also didn’t purchase any of the weapons used during the shooting – they were given to him by his mother, who purchased them legally. How can we hold a gun shop owner accountable for her actions?

Only when you click your heels together three times and say “There’s no place like home”.
