Marco Rubio Ignores Gun Control, Asks Why We Don’t Have Bomb Control (We Do)

It’s a sad state of affairs when the one Republican presidential candidate who is “smarter” than the rest is actually really really not smart at all.

Marco Rubio slammed the push for gun control in the wake of the San Bernardino attack, erroneously pointing out that the law didn’t keep the suspects from making bombs, either.

Actually, Marco, the law does. We have very very tight bomb control! It is illegal actually! So you are grasping for straws and uninformed. Bombs and bomb making are illegal. Guns aren’t. Full stop.

From 1983 to 2002, there were 699 bomb deaths in the US. From 1993-2011, there were 242,394 gun-related deaths in the US. I repeat: Bombs are illegal.

In a Fox News interview he said:

When this first came out– without knowing anything about the case — the first thing [the left] started talking about was gun control. I don’t hear anybody talking about bomb control. They put bombs and left bombs behind on the scene of attack, intending to kill even more people than they did with guns.”
