The recent political cartoon (“Progress 2016,” by Chris Britt) implying that the NRA was jointly responsible with ISIS for the Orlando tragedy showed seriously flawed logic.

If it wasn’t so hard to get a concealed weapons permit, maybe someone in that nightclub could have stopped the slaughter. Certainly, if President Barack Obama and his accomplices showed any backbone in defeating terrorists, it would be harder to recruit killers.
