from The Blaze:
‘I now actually do want to take your guns. All of your guns. Right now,’ magazine editor declares
In his Friday piece for the magazine, Dave Holmes accused the NRA of having “bought our government” and convincing its “members that the occasional school shooting, the odd literal slaughter of innocents, is an unfortunate but inevitable quirk of American life, a thing that is necessary to preserve freedom.”
His main point?
But Holmes’ thesis was summed up in the following three lines:
Anyway, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I now actually do want to take your guns.
All of your guns.
‘It wasn’t always this way’
“It wasn’t always this way,” he added in the magazine piece. “I have responsible gun owners in my family. I’ve never been a fan of shooting at things myself, but guns sure do seem to have brought joy into the lives of some people I love, and as long as they were stored properly, I never had a problem with them being around. I believed that we should place a hurdle or two between a psychopath and an AR-15, but that’s about as ardent as I got. Live and let live, that was my policy. Even with death machines.”
He continued, “That has all changed. And you changed it.”
