19 Right Wing "Anything but the Gun" Excuses (Updated - Now With More Satan)

Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 3:23:56 pm

Here's a list of the scapegoats and excuses we've heard so far in the ongoing pro-gun noise machine's efforts to blame gun violence and the Newtown school massacre on absolutely everything but the ready availability of millions of weapons like the Bushmaster AR-15 style assault rifle used by Adam Lanza.

(All excuses taken from actual right wing blog posts, web articles, and radio interviews.)

  1. Not enough God in schools.
  2. Not enough guns in schools.
  3. Not enough manly men in schools.
  4. Too many womenfolk in schools.
  5. Not enough children with guns.
  6. Not enough children trained to carry out human wave attacks.
  7. Satan.
  8. Autism.
  9. Asperger's Syndrome.
  10. Mental illness.
  11. Video games.
  12. Quentin Tarantino.
  13. Jon Stewart.
  14. Abortion pills.
  15. Gay marriage.
  16. Atheists.
  17. LIBOR.
  18. The theory of evolution.
  19. Swedish death metal. (OK, kidding on that one.)

I'm sure you can come up with some others.
