Invasion of the Wrong-Lesson Snatchers

A seeming lone gun nut sends threatening, ricin-laced letters to New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and U.S. President Barack Obama.

“What’s in this letter is nothing compared to what I’ve got planned for you” is a typical line. “. . . Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face. The right to bear arms is my constitutional God given right.”

Hmm. Perhaps one difference between the letter-sender and most Americans who support the right to bear arms is that the latter would never prepare threatening poison-laced letters?

That’s merely common sense, though; and some editorialists and other opinion-lock-and-loaders lurched to another “obvious” conclusion. Clearly, they intimated, we have a gun nut allied in his nuttiness with Americans who also cite the Second Amendment provided by the gun-nut Founding Fathers.

Guilt by association is a fallacy in any case. But there were at least two motives for writing such a letter. One, to assert a right to bear arms in so wacky and threatening a way that, presumably unbeknownst to one’s wacky self, one proves that one should be allowed nowhere near guns. Two, to frame an estranged, pro-gun-rights husband.

Shannon Richardson, an actress best known for playing a zombie on TV, told the FBI that her pro-gun-rights husband was probably the culprit. But mounting evidence soon pointed to her, not her husband. Uh oh . . .

My conclusion? Many opinion-bearers should be a little more thoughtful and a little less zombie-like when taking ideological aim.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Logic, cause and effect, are rarely the tools of the propaganda poisons. Emotion supports their positions so much better.

    Is there the possibility that she WAS ASKED TO/PUT UP TO IT, by ANTI-GUN ZEALOTS? Knowing full well that Obamaa’s mail is screened, and the odds of Bloomberg opening (himself) mail other then (possibly) that sent by someone that he knows is rarer then a snowstorm in Miami Beach on July 4T?

    You just KNOW that she voted for Obama, too.
    Same as the lady with racial stuff she had carved in her face.
    Same as the census worker who hung himself and tried to make it look like it was done by radical anti-government agents.

    Whenever an event pegs the crazy meter, look for the left winger.

    False flag … and the left leaps for it.

    The shenanigans of the wife are not new, just way over the top.
    I know of a case where a fella broke up with his wacky girlfriend.
    He owned a couple of ordinary revolvers and a deer rifle. The woman immediately filed a “domestic abuse” claim, and the police told the man to sell his guns, or have them confiscated until the situation was sorted out.
    Lesson: Some people are just EVIL.
