Morning Joe Scarborough from MSNBC is all for  the background checks. He is furious at Sen. Graham and others like him  who seem to argue that such measure will not help. He  is  furious  that 'the same people who supported me in  getting Bin Laden by any measures necessary..' those who, like him, were OK with waterboarding are now suddenly pro-gun.  He says that

The country which sent a man to the Moon
The country which defeated  the Nazis
The    country which defeated Communism
The country which crushed the Soviet Union
The country which  pursued Bin Laden with all measures  including waterboarding
The country  which fed more people on Earth than any other in history

That country according to pro-gun people cannot do much to protect  its children from  an internal gun violence.


Joe should maybe   look at it in a different way:

The country which dropped  two nuclear bombs and boasts to kill 100000 people in a second
The country which did not defeat the Nazi  Germany- the Russians did
The country which did not defeat Communism; ideology and philosophy  cannot be defeated
The country which has  nothing to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union; it imploded on its own due to internal  causes
The country which sent a man to the Moon but then found out it cannot do anything like that or  even close and  effectively abandoned the active space research
The country which unleashed  so many aggressive wars  and killed so many people with impunity that it became a  symbol of  barbarism
The country which disrupted lives of the  people all around  the world and then claimed to be their savior
The country which  has people like Joe and his allies  promoting torture  in the 21st Century

Such country cannot protect anyone or anything  from anyone or anything.  Maybe we here should let the people get their Bushmasters because if waterboarders  are for the gun control we  should better buy more guns.
