I know how difficult it can be to keep track of all the reasons why Adam Lanza was able to use an assualt weapon to slaughter small children in their classrooms. Gosh, there are just so many, many reasons! So as a public service I’ve been making a list of all the scapegoats and excuses we’ve heard so far from the pro-gun noise machine’s ongoing efforts to blame gun violence and the Newtown school massacre on absolutely everything but the ready availability of millions of weapons like the Bushmaster AR-15 style assault rifle used by Adam Lanza (hat tip: Charles Johnson).
All excuses taken from actual right wing blog posts, web articles, and radio interviews:
1.Not enough God in schools.
2.Not enough guns in schools.
3.Not enough manly men in schools.
4.Too many womenfolk in schools.
5.Not enough children with guns.
6.Not enough children trained to carry out human wave attacks.
18.The theory of evolution.
19.The Democratic Convention of 1968
I’m sure I’ve missed some, so feel free to add more.
