Who has blood on their hands?

After reading a letter to the editor titled “Limiting right to carry” by a stout liberal, it made me wonder if he is practicing to be a fiction writer one day. He definitely is consistent in his lack of research and facts.

First and foremost he blames those right wingers for being like the Taliban terrorist. But let's look at the facts of who the real terrorist are.

McVeigh, who blew up the federal building in Oklahoma was an agnostic who voted Libertarian. Then he claims there was four instances of armed resistance of U.S. law recently. First the Bundy standoff was the federal government claiming a rancher owed money. So instead of putting a lien on his property they send helicopters with SWAT teams to take over his ranch and kill his cattle. So if you owe money to the government they send in SWAT teams? Glad citizens stood up for what is right.

Then he claims there was armed challenge to 4-wheelers on federal land. That again is not true. A group of 4-wheelers drove onto land in Utah in protest. None of them were armed. The patrons going into a fast food restaurant to eat were carrying rifles. They did not break any laws.

Who is responsible for the mass killings. Liberal left wingers. All of the mass shootings were carried out by liberals. Look up their names and you will see they supported the liberal left agenda including their parents. The couple that shot the Las Vegas cops were stout liberals who participated in the Occupy Wall Street protest all over America.

But here is another stat. The USA is third in the world for murders. But if you take out Detroit, Chicago, D.C. and New Orleans, the USA ranks fourth from the bottom in the world for murders.

Those four cities have the strictest gun laws in the nation and guess what - the mayors are liberal leftwingers. Also here is another stat. Since 1973 the liberals have promoted and passed legislation promoting abortion to the tune of 57 million abortions since Roe vs Wade.

Then he claims only highly vetted individuals should be able to carry. I feel the same way about who becomes president. A sitting president should not be able to seal his records to keep citizens from properly vetting him.

So sir, who did you say has blood on their hands? Definitely not the Right Wingers.
