Knee Jerks: There's Nothing the Left Won't Exploit

Another ridiculous "argument' is "people would have been killed in the crossfire!" Let's say you're there with a 9mm and someone runs in front of you as you pull the trigger. Tragically, you kill one person then take out the shooter and save 10 lives and 30 wounded. The ONLY headline the next day would be, "Vigilante kills innocent movie goer with concealed weapon." Not a word about lives saved or injuries prevented because to do that would be to admit guns can SAVE lives. You know why the murder was so low in the "wild, wild west?" Because you think twice before getting froggy when the other guy has a Colt .45 strapped to his leg, too. Criminals love unarmed victims. Tyrants love unarmed citizens.

After he booby-trapped his apartment with explosives, James Holmes walked into a theater Friday night and opened fire on a crowd waiting to see the first showing of the new Batman movie. He shot scores and murdered a dozen. Holmes acted for reasons unknown, but his actions were pure evil.

His actions also were his alone.

It doesn’t matter if he was bullied as a kid, recently dumped or whatever else anyone comes up with as a possible motive. Nothing “caused” him to do this other than whatever evil lives inside him.

But that hasn’t stopped many progressive...
