MarketWatch columnist Brett Arends is sick and tired of the NRA literally — literally! — getting away with murder. He posted this yesterday:

The piece concludes:
As long as normal gun owners keep paying [the NRA] money, and drinking their Kool-Aid, and politicians in Washington keep taking them seriously, these massacres will keep continuing. It’s time for normal gun owners to decide where their loyalties lie: with the NRA, or the USA.
It seems holding a figurative gun to people’s heads is just one of his things. We’re excited to inform you that he topped himself today:
You either support gun control, or you support another #LasVegas. And another. And another.

Yeah! Wait … what?

Gee, that seems rational.

I see a woke 8 year old is running this account. https://t.co/2wcztXJiCf

The “8-year-old” part is key. This is juvenile logic at its finest, folks.
How about C: Your tweet is stupid and wrong

This is a stupid comment. No responsible gun owner supports what happened. Laws are in place and yet he illegally made the guns automatic.

This tweet is just plain moronic. It makes zero sense. Especially when you consider that everything the killer did was already illegal.

So tell me, dear one, what other laws would have prevented this tragedy? He already broke laws on the books and they didn't stop him.

It must be nice to live in a world where everyone agreeing with you will make all the bad things go away.

Typical false choice tactic designed to demonize, not progress the debate.

But why should Brett have all the fun? Two — and many more — can play this game:
Either you support the 2nd Amendment or you don't support the Constitution. Which means you hate women and black people.

You oppose gun control, or you support women being raped. Why do you support raping women?
— MarkC ?? (@mcasil2016) October 3, 2017
You either support using #2A to protect yourself from sexual assault or you support another rape. And another. And another.
— G (@daganash) October 3, 2017
You either support women defending themselves in the way they see fit or you support rape.
— PollySpin (@PollySpin) October 3, 2017
Either #BanAllVans, or support another Nice, and another, and another.
I can play this game too.

Name a specific law that would've stopped this man from murdering, otherwise you support this massacre.
— Wittorical (@Wittorical) October 3, 2017
You’re either pro-life or you support murdering babies.
— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 3, 2017
I support neither, Brett, and if you do, you're no better than the killer.
