Today, radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “blaming guns for murder is like blaming forks for obesity.”

Limbaugh was discussing last Friday's shooting spree at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, which left 12 people dead and 71 wounded:

“You note that nobody’s calling for the banning of violent Hollywood movies or rap music. Too heavily invested in the Democrat party. Nobody’s gonna call for the banning of comic books.

“What they will call - they use this crisis to call for more gun control. Even though Colorado - after the Colombine shootings a few years ago - Colorado already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.

“And the truth of the matter is that criminals and lunatics never have any problems breaking the laws. They never have any problems finding guns or explosives. The laws only stop other people from being able to defend themselves. Law only stops the law-abiding - by definition.

“Blaming guns for murder is like blaming forks for obesity. Someone misused a gun; therefore, no one’s allowed to have one. This is what passes for logic among the left.”
