You can't hold a gun when you're holding hands.
On Wednesday night, nine African-Americans were
by a vile, racist killer
as they attended a Bible study class at Charleston's historic Emanuel AME church. And now Charles Cotton, a "dedicated" board member of the NRA
—perhaps tiring of his political soul mates' attempts
to shift the blame from racism to religious intolerance for the mass murder—decided to weigh in with his own explanation
of who was really to blame for this horrific act of domestic terrorism: One of the murder victims. In a discussion on TexasCHLforum, it is pointed out that one of the victims was State Senator Clementa Pinckney. Said
Cotton of the murdered public servant and pastor of the church:
And he voted against concealed-carry. Eight of his church members who might be alive if he had expressly allowed members to carry handguns in church are dead. Innocent people died because of his position on a political issue.
A screenshot of the comment is below the fold.
As you watched Republican lawmakers and conservative pundits scramble to shift the blame for this mass killing from racism to an imaginary war on religion, you would be excused if you thought it was impossible to go any lower. Leave it the NRA to prove you wrong.
