In a vein similar to the NY Daily Newsâ€™ front page story accusing the NRA and GOP of helping terrorists in the U.S. obtain weapons, New Republicâ€™s Brian Beutler tried to point out how you might be bigoted and not even realize it:
There are many more armed loons in the U.S. than committed jihadis. Being scared of the latter, but not the former, is revealed bigotry.

It certainly does reveal something.

How many non-jihadi random loons are hoping to set off a dirty bomb in DC and NY someday? https://t.co/nYYY4dqXQT

Things tend not to go BOOM! around these gun owning "loons".
Way to talk about fellow Americans buddy. https://t.co/uANku29mUT

Beutler has personal issues with armed loons and it shapes his opinion on this to the point of incoherence. https://t.co/8assumpzKy

@brianbeutler In the past 20 years, how many times have a group of armed loons massacred 130 and maimed 300 people in one sitting in the US?

@brianbeutler Yeah, I want to be armed to be able to shoot them too. WTF is your point?
