Over the weekend, Rep. Louie Gohmert said that he wished the principal of Sandy Hook elementary — who was one of the first to encounter Adam Lanza at the start of his rampage and was one of the first people he shot and killed — had herself been carrying a gun.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg was asked about Gohmert’s comment:
Bloomberg responded by saying, “There are dumb statements and then there are stupid statements… I don’t know what the gun would have done.”
Aside from the principal saving her own life and stopping that freak dead in his tracks before he was able to kill many, many more kids and teachers, I have no idea what the gun would have done.
Because he has no idea what guns accomplish, somebody should propose that Bloomberg’s security detail be disarmed. Suddenly I’m sure he’d have an idea of what guns accomplish.
