Gun barrels were still warm and smoking and blood was still flowing from the bullet wounds inflicted by Aaron Alexis at the Washington Navy Yard when the gun grabbers began calling once again for a ban on scary-looking guns. One problem: No scary-looking AR-15 was used in the shooting.
The Administration of Barack Obama is so dedicated to the idea of getting involved in Syria’s civil war, despite domestic and international objection to the U.S. meddling in the conflict, that it is willing not only to waive provisions of Federal law prohibiting the arming of terrorists but also to put its hypocrisy on full display.
Not quite two weeks ago, a group of Islamofascists attacked the town of Maaloula, Syria. The attack didn’t garner all that much attention, primarily because it was drowned out by the roar of President Barack Obama getting sacked in his own diplomatic end zone by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
