The liberal press has wasted precious little time demonizing the Second Amendment in the wake of the shooting by an off-duty TSA worker at LAX.

Mother Jones tweeted the following a few minutes ago:

Note the push-button word: “assault rifle,” a favorite emotional phrase adopted by the gun-grabber crowd. Every weapon, of course, is an “assault weapon,” but what the libs never tell you is that firearms are primarily defense weapons.

“Guns used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense,” Gun Owners of America noted in 2008. “Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year — or about 6,850 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.”
