McCain Misfires Again

The Senator from Arizona seems intent on disqualifying himself for the White House. Why else would he choose yesterday of all days for a ringing endorsement of the Constitutional right to bear arms?

Asked about the Virginia Tech massacre, McCain replied: "We have to look at what happened here, but it doesn't change my views on the Second Amendment, except to make sure that these kinds of weapons don't fall into the hands of bad people...Obviously we have to keep guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens."

Yesterday's shooter very likely had no prior record to keep him from buying his rapid-fire, big-clip guns, so McCain is defending his right to keep them until they were pried from his cold, dead hands.

Someone should explain to the Senator when straight talk becomes stupid talk and let him know that the warranty on American sympathy for his POW ordeal has just run out.
