Seriously, how stupid are these people?

Of all the places to argue that only the government should be trusted with guns, Beto O’Rourke picked…Kent State University.

It’s not even the right place to start arguing that “well regulated militia” actually means only the National Guard get to have the guns….

  1. well, it makes sense when you consider it from the viewpoint of someone who never wants any individual citizen to have the power to resist the State.

  2. NRA is fundraising off Beto. Doing pretty well, I think.

    “Hell, yeah, we’re gonna take your guns!”

    A powerful tool for the right. Thanks, Beto!

  3. I remember Kent State. I made a resolution never to frighten a mob of anxious, undertrained amateur soldiers who might panic and open fire.

    It was a bit like the lesson of Peterloo: don’t frighten a panic-prone magistrate.

  4. Looks like SNP are stupid enough to push ahead with a vote of no confidence and Corbyn is even stupider and prepared to be interim PM and their fall guy for asking for a brexit delay.
    Assume SNP are at least clever enough to think Corbyn asking for deal will stop leave supporters in Scotland switching to labour

  5. Dear Mr Worstall

    And criminals.

    Only honest non-government folk are not to be allowed to own guns; the people who pay* for government through legalised extortion and are also preyed upon by criminals**.

    * Sometimes criminals pay for government, but that is called bribery and that’s a crime.
    ** Just a minute, is that repetition?
