ThinkProgress: ‘How Come Lettuce is Banned But Guns Aren’t?’

Published

on

Progressive news stalwart ThinkProgress unwittingly entered the competition for the worst take in internet history Friday when it wondered aloud why Romaine lettuce is banned, but firearms are readily available.

“On Thanksgiving Day 2018, Americans couldn’t buy romaine lettuce because of a CDC recall linked to an E. Coli outbreak,” said the site’s Ryan Koronowski. “But even though gun violence is so mundane that a shooting at a mall in Alabama Thursday evening barely made national news, guns were still freely available at stores like Walmart across the country.”

Wow. Apparently there’s not a whole lot of thinking going on over at ThinkProgress. This was a true “no-brainer.” Let’s break it down.

First of all, consider the apparently not-so-obvious.

The right to bear arms is fundamental. It is the second right granted by God to Americans to be protected by government. It’s right there in the Bill of Rights, right after the First Amendment and right before the Third. As I’m looking at my pocket Constitution, I see no right to bear romaine. Likewise, there is no right to bear arugula, spinach, or any other leaf vegetable that one might use to make a salad. Sorry to all the vegetarians out there.

Secondly, consider that banning romaine until it is free of E. Coli has little effect on one’s ability to defend himself against a tyrannical government, unless of course one was planning on hiding in his lettuce patch when the Communists at ThinkProgress take over.

Thirdly, it is far easier for the CDC to nix a vegetable than it is for the federal government to nix a Constitutional right. The latter takes time, and we haven’t even entered the discussion phase.

This is elementary stuff, except perhaps for the logically-challenged over at ThinkProgress.

POLL: National Support for Gun Control Plummets Amid 2020 Coronavirus, Crime Surge, Race Riots

Support for this leftist policy is declining.

A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals that nationwide support for gun control has plummeted during 2020, with only 52% of Americans describing their support for “stricter gun control laws” this year. An identical poll in 2019 revealed that 64% of Americans supported stricter gun control in 2019, with 12% changing their position this year.

The Rasmussen poll also reveals that Americans who were already gun owners have armed themselves in increasing fashion this year. A massive 27% of Americans who already have guns in their house have bought at least one new one in the last six months, showing that the nation’s existing population of gun owners has become even more resolute in their support of the Second Amendment.

The chaotic events of 2020 have proved sufficient to fuel what many have identified as the greatest “panic buy” of firearms and ammunition in American history, with sales records being routinely crushed on a monthly basis by US gun buyers. Concerns largely related to coronavirus, nationwide race riots, and an increase in violent crime have led in great part to millions of first-time gun owners in the country, with women and citizens of liberal states such as California executing their rights to gun ownership in a manner never previously seen.

Major firearm and ammunition retailers continue to regularly sell out of their inventory, unable to meet the massive demand for guns. Production halts in gun and ammo manufacturing have also played a crucial role in eroding inventories, with coronavirus halting the supply chain for metals such as copper.

More than 1,000 Americans across the country were surveyed for the Rasmussen poll.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has consistently reiterated his support for strict gun control measures, advocating for an outright ban of so-called “assault weapons” owned by tens of millions of Americans.
