Yet again, the NGVAC shows their insanity, this time in a rant about the Charlie Hebdo attack: Yet, because of the U.S.’s insane gun laws, the brothers, if they lived here, could amazingly have gone into any licensed gun dealer and legally bought as many guns as they wanted because being on the “no-fly” list … Continue reading Missing the point award: National Gun Victims Action Council on the Charlie Hebdo Attack
