Actress Elizabeth Perkins taught us the first rule of political discourse on Twitter: “Don’t tweet Barack if you don’t want responses.” That rule only works for President Obama, though. Perkins found that politicizing Friday’s shooting in Santa Monica, Calif., didn’t go unnoticed by the Second Amendment wackos. People will likely have plenty to say about our current gun laws in light of the shooting, but most will have the sense to wait until we know something about the shooter to determine if any gun control legislation, either currently on the books or proposed by Congress, would have prevented his actions.

What’s with these wackos?

Yes, obviously. But for the record, Perkins is totally pro-gun, just like Melissa Gilbert totally respects hunters.
