New Heights (or depths) of Hysteria from the GFWs

From The High Road comes this, from apparent enuretic gun-fearing wuss David Ignoramus Ignatius of the Washington Compost (emphasis mine):

The NRA is also proposing federal legislation that would make it a crime for cops to disarm lawfully gun-toting citizens during emergencies.
Even by NRA standards, this is a bad idea — not just divisive but downright dangerous. Does the gun lobby really want to remake America in the image of Iraq? The proposal was apparently motivated by the lawlessness in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, but if there aren’t enough cops to patrol the streets, then hire more cops. When individual citizens, even “law-abiding” ones, decide to go it alone, the result is anarchy.

Given the gun lobby’s usual success in muscling special-interest provisions into law, you might expect to see politicians rushing to sign the America-as-Baghdad pledge.

As David Codrea might say, “Leftist gun-hating journalists. Is there anything they don’t know?”

But…Whoa. Just…whoa. Talk about new heights of hysteria. Now it’s not just blood in the streets, now they’re saying our natural right to arms has the potential to make the country into a war zone. And don’t you just love this guys youthful, oh-so-naive idealism? “Just hire more cops.” Never mind the cities’ budget shortfalls, spending the money on other things like basketball arenas (and gun registries), and then we’re not even getting into the cops walking off the job and taking part in the looting and such, and does anyone remember New Orleans Police Chief Eddie Compass’ remark?
“If I put you out on the street and made you get into gun battles all day with no place to urinate and no place to defecate, I don’t think you’d be too happy either… Our vehicles can’t get any gas. The water in the street is contaminated. My officers are walking around in wet shoes.”
This is yet another case of some clueless idiot sitting up there spouting crap from his air-conditioned office about something he knows nothing about. You wonder why newspaper circulation is on the wane these days? It’s because they’re chock-full of such abject idiocy as this. Please stay where you are right now, Ignatius. We don’t need your kind of idiocy here in Red America. Heaven knows it’s screwed up Blue America beyond all recognition.
