As everyone knows, restrictions on firearms sales are tyrannical and don’t do any good anyway — if someone can’t buy a gun, they’ll buy a knife and kill with it anyway, right? Just look at the case of Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis, who was unable to purchase the AR-15 he wanted last week because Virginia law “prohibits the sale of such weapons to out-of-state buyers.” Instead, he bought “a law-enforcement-style shotgun — an 870 Remington pump-action” — which he used in his deadly rampage Monday. So gun restrictions never work, unless maybe you consider the number of people Alexis could have killed with a semiautomatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine.
Yr Wonkette has no doubt that the National Rifle Association will respond to this news by calling for an end to Virginia’s tyrannical restriction on the rights of would-be mass killers. After all, just because someone’s not from Virginia, that’s no reason to deny them the same God-given right to spray lead at a high rate of fire.
