  1. Unlike 9/11, many of these more recent attacks seem to never show any concrete connection to ISIS, or whatever group.

  2. I can’t help wondering how all the right-wingers who are high-fiving over this while demanding more guns would react if confronted with fifty gay men and women all carrying assault rifles. Presumably, they would assert a constitutional right to own and deploy nuclear weapons.

  3. Hi Pete. Gun control was instituted in the US to get arms out of the hands of black people often by people like then governor Ronald Reagan. It was the right wingers that historically took the right to arms away from working people so that the only people who could have guns were lumpen criminals who feed on workers and the agents of the capitalist state (army, police, etc) who oppress them. Stalin was the first nominally leftist to disarm workers after Marx, Lenin, et al fought hard to arm the workers for decades. Now the modern yellow left in America joins with liberal war criminals like Obama and Clinton who have used state power to kill thousands in calling to remove one of the last remaining democratic benefits of the first American Revolution – – the right of working people to bear arms. Iron Man Stalin is now Irony Main Stalinism.

  4. Hi Stuart,
    As far as I know American working people still have right to buy an electric can opener for under 15 Euros. That is a much more important right than paying 450 dollars for an inefficient Colt can opener. Not only is the Colt much more expensive it is only useful for putting an extra hole in a can that is already empty.
    How great is the role of weapons in the oppression of the American people when compared with the role of propaganda?
    “Let Us Make America Great Again.” “America Is Great And Has Always Been Great.” “I Have A Fallout Shelter For Sale In Wiesbaden on Am Birnbaumstrasse.”
