Family Guy Creator Seth MacFarlane Calls For A Ban On Automatic Weapons (TWEETS)

Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad! took to Twitter on Sunday on the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in American history to both slam America’s inaction and to call for a ban on automatic weapons:

And he’s right. We all know the problem is that we allow anyone, no matter who they are, to buy whatever guns they want. Have a history of stalking and attacking ex-girlfriends? Here’s a gun! Were you arrested for armed robbery and attempted murder? Go on, buy a couple of handguns! What could go wrong! Hey, are you on the terrorist watchlist and have known ties to terrorist organizations? Well, don’t let that stop you from buying an AR-15 and an extended ammo magazine! Your Second Amendment rights are the most important thing of all!

MacFarlane’s call for a ban, of course, brought out the ammosexuals that always seem more concerned about protecting their access to weapons of mass murder than they are with the victims and MacFarlane patiently disabused a few of their ignorant talking points:

That’s a point that always seems to elude the “A hammer is a weapon, too!” crowd. The only purpose for an assault rifle or semi-automatic handgun is to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time. Period.

And here’s another favorite NRA talking point debunked:

MacFarlane probably isn’t aware that there was an armed police officer working at the club but he was unable to stop the shooter. Not that this will matter. The talking point ios taken as gospel among the gun fondlers that dream of being the hero taking down “the bad guy.”

Finally, MacFarlane pretty much ends the debate by pointing out the correlation between America’s gun fetish and its out of control gun violence:

We can be sickened by the bloodshed all we want but we can’t be shocked anymore. Unless we take back control of our Congress from the NRA and the gun industry, this will just keep happening over and over again.
