As assault weapon ban languishes, Bette Midler pities ‘soon-to-be-slain’
On Monday, Bette Midler tweeted that she was losing hope that a ban on assault rifles would make its way through the “cowards” in the Senate. It seems the NRA is responsible for the Senate’s inaction, and lives are at stake. At least some of Midler’s followers, though, would rather these victims-to-be had their own firearms and not her pity.
Like Colorado’s Sen. Evie Hudak, Midler seems to think statistics prove that disarming men and women is in their own best interest, even if they don’t realize it. Shouldn’t citizens be able to decide for themselves what’s in their best interest?
