Solution Is Obvious

Tying together several themes of the day, here’s what Ann Coulter had to say on Sean Hannity’s show about gun violence in America:

“On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe, and oh, they’re so low, and they have no guns,” Coulter told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

Coulter didn’t have to draw a picture of her ideas for a “solution” to the problem.

If I didn’t really like the Belgians, I’d suggest that she get herself over there permanently right away. It might be a socialist hell in her eyes, but it would be one where she’d not only be secure, but would not be allowed within 100 yards of a camera.
