MT @washingtonpost: There are 58,344 licensed gun dealers in the US. There are 31,857 post offices. There are 7,541 non sequiturs.—

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.
Luckily, Twitter users are there to point out the inanity of WaPo’s talking point non sequitur.
Point? “Real journalists” don’t need any stinkin’ points, you bitter clingers!
And still others weigh in with an attempt at a Teachable Moment for the good little lapdogs at The Washington Post.
Funny thing: private demand supports gun dealers, which govt wants to crack down on. Govt needs to subsidize USPS to sustain post offices.—

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