The hyper-judgmental, accusatory post from columnist Christine Emba denounced people who argue that mass shootings are caused by external forces other than the fact that we have gun rights in this country.
Mocking them, she wrote, “The problem is mental illness. The problem is lone-wolf gunmen. The problem is soft targets. The problem is evil. The problem is them, over there; it’s their fault that the kids keep getting killed. Wrong the problem is you.”
Emba then stated that Barack Obama was right when he slammed Americans for loving their guns: “Way back in 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was castigated for saying that some Americans ‘cling to guns,’ and for suggesting that this was unreasonable or unhealthy. The evidence — which is to say the pileup of bodies year after year — suggests he was correct.”
