Credit where credit is due, Marco Rubio makes a great point here:
Appearing on Fox & Friends, 2016 GOP presidential contender Marco Rubio hammered at Democrats for proposing additional gun control laws after the San Bernardino attack, adding that “the left” never talks about “bomb control.”
Rubio voted against additional restrictions on gun possession on Thursday — just two days after the attack in California that left 14 dead and 21 wounded — and took to the Fox & Friends couch to complain that liberals jumped to conclusions about the shooting before any of the facts were revealed.
“When this first came out, without knowing anything about the case, the first thing they started talking about was gun control, and gun control, ” the junior senator from Florida said. “I don’t hear anybody talking about bomb control. They put bombs, they left bombs behind on the scene of attack, intending to kill even more people than they did with the guns.”
When the hell is this country going to finally get serious about bomb control? As long as you can just walk into your local Walmart and come out carrying bags full of legally-purchased pipe bombs, we can’t hope to do anything about the epidemic of bomb attacks sweeping the nation.
In fact, you know what? I would go even further than Senator Rubio. What if we made it against the law to take another person’s life, maybe with certain very specific exceptions? Just outlawed it completely, you know? I don’t here any liberals out there talking about making laws against killing people–do you? But wouldn’t that be way smarter than gun control? You’re damn right it would be! Let’s see if we can work on this.
