Christian blowhard Bryan Fischer, host of an American Family Association-supported radio show, took to Twitter to explain the real problem that led to nine deaths in a South Carolina church last night:
Misguided bans on guns in houses of worship turned this black church in SC into a shooting gallery. Nobody could shoot back.
Because the solution to gun violence is more guns.
Fischer wasn’t alone. The Fox & Friends crowd said the same thing this morning:
“Had somebody in that church had a gun, they probably would have been able to stop him,” host Steve Doocy remarked. “If somebody was there, they would have had the opportunity to pull out their weapon and take him out.”
Or maybe we’d be left with no survivors. Or maybe we’d see these shootings happen even more often.
It’s reckless, irresponsible, and right in line with the typical irrational thinking we’ve come to expect from these sources.
