My Favorite Ghoul could not let President’s Day pass without mentioning Presidential Assassinations and Attempts. She mentions Lincoln and Kennedy plus the attempt on Reagan as segue to bring Jim Brady and the whole Brady Campaign and to glorify herself in the process.
The problem is that History and Japete must come to a bitter collision. Why? Joan hates your semi auto guns, “High” Capacity magazines, Assault Rifles among other gun things. But we know the following:
John Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln with a .41 caliber cap and ball pocket pistol marked Derringer.
Kennedy was killed with a 6 shot bolt action Carcano Rifle, hardly an “assault” weapon.
And the gun used in the attempt against Reagan was a Rohm .22 caliber, six shot revolver.
Maybe she should be advocating for the banning of muzzle loaders and cheap foreign guns. Or maybe she should stop milking dead people.
UPDATE: I went to post the above mentioned facts over Joan’s blog. Allow me to say that the captcha surprised the hell out of me.
We are the New Negroes, aren’t we?
UPDATE 2: My comment was never posted…. and the one of hers pictured above suddenly disappeared?
