The left wants to dwell on the gun angle of Batman theater shooting in Colorado. They pretend guns are the most destructive devices out there. But those on the left ignore plenty of evidence to the contrary.
For instance, they overlook the case of a self-described activist who apparently came close to blowing up a gas main and a good chunk of a suburban community near Dallas, Texas last month.
Even if you could take away the guns, those bent on destruction would likely move on to other implements as they attempt to carry acts of violence. Firearms are generally targeted, point-to-point, one-victim-per-round systems. Most anarchists or terrorists have long known bombs and arson are much more efficient for mass destruction.
By the way, is there any chance we'd have seen more in the media about the Texas case if the alleged perpetrator hadn't been described as anti-big business and linked to environmental activism?
