Lapdog non sequiturs: WaPo frets over more gun dealers than post offices

Zing!

That’s right: The Washington Post is suggesting there are too many gun dealers.

Why? Because, post offices. Also, a nice talking point for WaPo’s Democrat buddies, as it openly suggest in the alleged article:

In response, don’t be surprised if you see Democrats use this gun shop vs. post office argument to make the point that there are more than enough gun shops across the country where private dealers could drop off records of a private sale or conduct a background check.

It’s up to them to decide how many is too many, huh? Just like it is not above Obama’s paygrade to let you know that at some point, you’ve made enough money. It’s not like you built it anyway.

Luckily, Twitter users are there to point out the inanity of WaPo’s talking point non sequitur.

And still others weigh in with an attempt at a Teachable Moment for the good little lapdogs at The Washington Post.

Bingo. But that wouldn’t put any extra kibble in WaPo’s bowl now, would it?

  • Steve_J

    Why doesn’t the editor walk down the streeet to the DOJ and talk to one of the biggest and most lethal gun dealers in the U S?

    OMG the stupid….it burrrrrns.

  • Pat Loudoun

    I’m guessing that Gun Dealers being profitable has something to do with that.

    LOL even the comment section on that piece of ish article is ridiculing the stupidity of the comparison!

  • Worship Dancer

    gosh wonder how many WALMARTS there are?

  • grais

    If only we could have more post offices….

  • American.Vet

    And there are 195,941 licensed Dentists, 834,769 licensed Doctors, and 118,756 licensed Gas Stations……. so what??

    Dear WaPo: Can you please get the figures on how many apples vs. how many oranges are in the country?

      As soon as we figure out the approximate coust of a pound Earl Grey in Shanghai last Tuesday…

      • Michelle

        Nice one, Corey!

    • Zefal

      Why would you want to compare apples and oranges? Let’s stick to relevant comparisons; like number of mentally handicapped persons missing from mental institutions to the number of wapo writers.

        I think many of WaPo reporters submit their stories from inpatient status.

    That’s 58,344 profitable taxpaying businesses and 1 giant tax subsidized blood sucking parasite. What’s your point?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Well, let’s be specific. Only 1 giant, tax subsidized, blood sucking parasite that delivers letters…most of the time.

    There are more post offices than airports!

    The Washington Post✔
    @washingtonpost
    There are 58,344 licensed gun dealers in the U.S.. There are 31,857 post offices. http://wapo.st/12bj1Dm

    Soon to be more licensed gun dealers than newspapers if “journalism” of this caliber continues.

  • TexSizzle

    How many Democrat politicians are there, compared to post offices? How many So-Called Unbiased Media (SCUM) so-called reporters are there?

  • Kingofthehill

    now those numbers might actually reverse if we could get guns shipped DIRECTLY to our homes instead of having to go to an FFL dealer to pick up your firearm where you have to run a background check at.

    Ooops, don’t want to bring facts into this.

    I’m actually waiting for the USPS to deliver some stuff they’ve had for four days now. It’s still in Georgia. I live in Colorado. Nice going, USPS. I’ll be sure to tip my postal carrier. /sarc.
