“But punishing an entire group of people for the actions of a few horrible ones is not the American way.” So says a Nov. 24 TCH editorial concerning the proposed treatment of refugees. I have to wonder why this policy is not universally spread across all subjects in the U.S.
Every time some unstable person draws blood using a firearm, the left rants about more gun control, even when the facts are existing laws were not enforced and/or would not have prevented the situation. Yet the answer is always more controls on the estimated 110-million-plus law-abiding gun owners in the U.S. based on the actions of one.
The TCH editorial board is willing to risk our nation’s security by allowing in potential terrorists as part of an effort to help people from a region which has been raging religious wars for thousands of years by bypassing all established immigration laws, yet let that one unstable person use a gun and it’s damn all those that believe in our Second Amendment!
Like our homeless and veterans these people need help, yet we are already $18 trillion in debt with another $100-trillion-plus in unfunded mandates.
All I can say is why the hypocrisy?
