Lib says guns easier to get than food; doubles down after brutal Twitter lashing

Guns are easier to obtain than food, one liberal columnist says.


Writing for News.Mic, Scott Bixby defended the left’s push for more restrictive gun control after the slaughter of nine people at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

It was his comments on Twitter, however, that really sparked an outrage.

While promoting his written defense of politicizing tragedies on behalf of advocates for additional gun control, Bixby made a claim that most gun owners found simply baffling:

Unsurprisingly, anyone who has ever had to fill out a background check or comply with waiting periods had a different opinion.

After all, purchasing a gun requires slightly more red tape than using a self-checkout kiosk at the local supermarket.

Bixby defended his crazy statement by saying that some states require drug testing for anyone looking to take advantage of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – better known as “food stamps.”

Most users were unimpressed with his “logic.”

In his article Bixby hoped Americans would be capable of having a “discussion” about the availability of firearms. Judging by his comments on Twitter, he should probably begin with some basic education before lecturing everyone else about how to restrict Second Amendment rights.
