The perfect liberal delusion about gun violence comes from this tweet by George Takei. He said: “Crazy thought, but those 20 million AR-15s now in this country could sure arm a lot of Ukrainians.” Americans really think they can inflict violence all over the world and have it never come home. As Malcolm X said about JFK, it’s chickens coming home to roost.

As Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg said, “I did not carry an assault weapon around a foreign country so I could come home and see them used to massacre my countrymen.” They really don’t get it. This is why your countrymen are getting massacred. The entire American culture and commerce of violence cannot be contained. It literally bleeds across borders. It stains, it stains, it stains.

American politicians view a murder tour on the frontier as a political feather in their caps. It enables US Senator Tammy Duckworth to make violently idiotic statements like this, “I carried an M16 and M4 in the military, so let me be clear: High-powered rifles designed for our troops to engage an enemy with accurate, lethal fire at a velocity of 3,000 feet per second have no place
