Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) shared the podium with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to disgust (sic) gun control and yup, there’s that word again, “Common Sense” bandied about during their discussion. Both senators agree that society is on the down spiral, morals-wise, but they think that background checks will ferret out hoodlums and the mentally ill from obtaining guns. COMMON SENSE, senators?
- It’s naive and irrational to think that a criminal is going to fill out background check information, wait for it, honestly. Honestly, it’s the most stupid presumption going here, guys.
- Likewise, the mentally ill, may have no COMMON SENSE and will lie, beg or borrow any dam weapon they can get their hands on (the recent stabbing at Lone Star College proves this).
- It’s only honest, law-abiding citizens that, wait for it, obey laws.
With all due respect, senators.
