The left loses it over Rubio buying a gun

Liberals in America are losing their collective minds over the realization that Republican presidential contender Marco Rubio — egad! — bought a gun on Christmas eve.

Rubio was even asked about his commonplace purchase — the country is seeing record gun ownership under the Obama administration — on Sunday during an appearance on “Face the Nation.”

“I’m a strong supporter of the second amendment. I have a right to protect my family if someone were to come after us,” Rubio told CBS host John Dickerson. “In fact, if ISIS were to visit us, or our communities, at any moment, the last line of defense between ISIS and my family is the ability that I have to protect my family from them, or from a criminal, or anyone else who seeks to do us harm. Millions of Americans feel that way.”

Just ask any resident of San Bernardino, California.

As one social media user pointed out, Rubio has the right to buy a gun. ‘End of story.’

Nevertheless, Rubio exercising that right set off the left, who feels that purchasing a firearm for personal protection is somehow a problem.

Here’s a sampling of the left’s response from Twitter (with a few commonsense reactions sprinkled in):
