Kelly Dodd is complete and utterly stupid.
There is no other way to say it.
And there is no reason to pretend otherwise at this point.
The former Real Housewives member of the Beverly Hills cast, who was expelled from the franchise less than a year ago, took to Twitter last week in response to a massacre at Rob Elementary School in Uvala, Texas.
You’ve undoubtedly heard so far last week that an 18-year-old gunman opened fire inside a classroom there, killing two teachers and 19 young students in the process.
It was the latest mass shooting that has become the most tragic in American tradition, the only civilized nation in the world whose citizens are routinely brutally murdered.
This is just a fact.
One could argue the reason behind this, but America stands alone – by a very wide margin – in the number of deaths from gunfire inside its borders each year.
In response to the Texas shootings, a certain section of the populace has renewed calls for Congress to pass gun control laws – from universal background checks … to red flag laws … to ban assault weapons.
He thinks it’s silly to talk about gun control in the wake of such a tragedy, to compare the Uvalde incident to the darkest day in U.S. history … and then perhaps the most stupid comparison you’ll ever read.
“We haven’t banned planes since 9-11. We’ve secured cockpits. We’ve secured schools,” Dodd tweeted.
Is this statement misleading and dangerous?
Yes we should!
FirstWe haven’t secured cockpits since 9/11.
The Transportation Security Administration has introduced a number of strict security protocols for passengers before boarding any plane. We don’t always take off our shoes, you know?
Seconds, An assault rifle is a weapon of war. There is only one purpose behind this.
An aircraft is primarily used for travel.
There are examples of hijacked planes flying over a pair of buildings.
There are countless examples of these weapons of war being used for the exact purpose of their design.
Third, OK … let’s go ahead and treat the gun industry the same way we treat the aviation industry. That’s an outstanding idea!
Let’s get a license for all gun owners and go through extensive training; Similarly, all pilots must be licensed and go through extensive training.
Let’s follow the same rules, regulations and safety precautions for guns for plane and air travel. Love it!
FourthAbsolutely no one is calling for a ban on guns. Some people are simply calling for something to be banned Type Guns
We would say we expect more from Kelly Dodd.
However, he added in 2020 that COVID only kills poor people and compares the Black Lives Matter movement to terrorism.
He is our very stupid man.
