Letter: Gun violence and Syria

September 24, 2013 

When a nation adopts institutionalized insanity through the liberal mindset, should anyone be surprised at ensuing events?

Strict privacy laws prevent any counselor from indicating that his patient is nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake, hears voices and is threatening violence.

The shooter is smart enough to know he works in a military facility where no one can be armed, or if they have sidearms they cannot be loaded. When violence happens, the logical thing to do is for liberal senators to blame the NRA because that group loves guns.

Perhaps it was just as well that we didn't decide to launch an "unbelievably small" attack on Syria. We might have flown over and shot a few blanks to scare the daylights out of them. Or we could have launched some dud warheads so no one would be injured.

Oh, wait! Here's a better idea. Let's turn this "punish Assad" operation over to our good pals, the Russians. They would have an accurate idea about the WMDs because they manufactured and delivered them and probably have sales receipts as proof. And we know they would take excellent care of anything they sold.

The crowning touch is the French have our backs.
