Dear
liberal friends: the massacre in DC did NOT HAPPEN because we lack
MORE control on guns (you know, in DC, where guns are basically banned,
and the naval yard is where nobody has weapons…).

Dear
conservative friends: Clinton-era gun control policies restricting
weapons on bases DID NOT KILL THOSE MURDERED TODAY. Some psycho with
lawfully acquired weapon(s) did.

Seriously, people. Can we
stop making EVERYTHING about whose policies might have contributed to
the blame? People died today. Parents aren’t going home to their kids.
DC lived in terror today. I have friends who were within blocks of
the tragic scene. It’s like we’re incapable of letting the bodies get
removed from the scene before we start pointing fingers at ANYBODY BUT
the shooter! Come on. Get real.
