And This Here Cowboy Says That Gun Violence Is Caused By Welfare Mothers

January 22, 2013


Yes, he does. Seriously.


Rep. James Lankford (R-OK), the fifth-ranking House Republican, laid the blame for gun violence at the feet of an unusual suspect: the children of “welfare moms” who commit fraud.

That’s a two-fer. You can blame women AND poor people all at once.

He claims that gun violence is cause by putting kids on psychiatric drugs to get more benefits. I knew they’d eventually get to blaming women even though it’s men doing the shooting.

Gun violence is caused by everything except guns.

Good grief.

2. Riiiiiiiight. The kids on psychiatric drugs are going on shooting sprees.



Meanwhile, never mind the elephant in the room that all the mass shooters are white from fairly well-to-do families.

3. We need to give these moms guns...

It's the only way to prevent drugged-up youngsters from shooting up schools and theaters.

Just add them to the list of people who need guns to make us all safer.

5. How do you get benefits by putting your kids on drugs?

 

Don't you first need benefits to afford the doctor and prescription?

6. OK, so the cuases of gun violence, according to the right, are movies, video games,

women, and poor people.

Gun violence is caused by everything except guns.


Writing for The Onion must be getting really hard.

8. If it makes you feel better, I'm sure some are blaming the shootings

on gay people. According to James Dobson, homosexuality can be averted by fathers allowing their sons to touch their dad's penis in the shower. So mass shootings are, in a sense, caused by boys being kept away from their father's guns.

10. Dylan Klebold,Eric Harris,Adam Lanza-none of the parents of these killers were in need

of "benefits". The killer of the Amish kids was not on relief and was not receiving benefits.

Total bullshit.

Guns in the hands of bad or deranged people kill people. Its that simple. Wanna make it simpler yet? Ban the auto anything.

11. Two mass shootings in Milwaukee last year...

Neither of them committed by welfare moms or their kids.

In fact, both were committed by former members of the military. So, Rep. Shit-For-Brains, who do you say to that?
