I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that actor Kal Penn scored very low on the Analogy section of the SATs.
In an attempt to prove that Congress is unwilling to take action against “gun violence,” Penn tweeted out this pseudo-insightful bit of drivel:
Americans killed on 9/11: 2,996
Days it took Congress to authorize war:3
Americans killed by guns in 2017: 11,652
Days in 2017 so far:275

Now, to the trained eye, it appears what Kal is saying here is Congress should declare war on people who shoot and killed people.
Or, as Kurt Schlichter put it:
Liberal demands America invade Chicago https://t.co/NNEK4ckEYg

Of course Kal Penn’s analogy doesn’t make any sense.
It’s like comparing apples to peanut butter.
Now, if three days after 9/11 Congress voted to ban all planes larger than a 737, then I would get his point.
Or if three days after 9/11, Congress passed a law saying only law enforcement and the military can fly, then, maybe his analogy would make sense.
But to the colossally ignorant, this tweet sounds brilliant.
Then again, to the colossally ignorant, Jimmy Kimmel is an expert on public policy.
Killing people is already against the law. Maybe Kal isn’t aware of that.
And when you consider that the majority of firearm homicides are concentrated in cities with a great deal of gang violence, clearly law enforcement is already combatting the problem.
But if anything is preventing law enforcement from cracking down on gangs, it isn’t the NRA. Instead, it is Democrat politicians who have made gang-infested cities sanctuaries for illegal aliens.
Which, by the way, ICE is waging a war against illegal alien gangs like MS-13. So Kal Penn’s point is moot.
And let’s face it. Like most Leftists, Kal Penn has no problem with Sanctuary Cities or illegal aliens.
Another thing that has seriously hindered combatting the people who commit these murders was the Obama Justice Department’s relentless attacks on law enforcement. And Crime Statistics are showing that Heather MacDonald was right. This “Ferguson Effect” is very real.
But Kal Penn doesn’t want to talk about that.
Instead, he attacks the Second Amendment and tries to create a moral equivalence between the terrorists of 9/11 and the right to bear arms.
Wayne LaPierre did an outstanding video a couple years ago about “How to Stop Gun Violence.”
And unlike Kal Penn’s insipid tweet, LaPierre actually uses facts.
Give a watch.
