Anti-Bill of Rights Zealot Chuck Schumer Says Guns Cause Cancer … Or Something?

Chuckie’s wacky logical fallacy: Not talking about “guns when it comes to gun violence” is like not talking about “smoking when it comes to lung cancer” …

( – Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told NBC’s David Gregory on “Meet the Press” Sunday that not talking about “guns when it comes to gun violence” is like not talking about “smoking when it comes to lung cancer.”

“The president has talked about generally dealing with violence in our society. I agree with that, but to take guns off the table, you know to not talk about guns when it comes to gun violence is to not talk about smoking when it comes to lung cancer. It just doesn’t make any sense. It’s part of the problem, and we have to deal with it,” Schumer said.

Okay. Let’s look at Congressman’s Schumer logic. It’s widely accepted that PEOPLE WHO SMOKE CIGARETTES can get lung cancer. Is it widely accepted that guns cause violence?

Schumer’s assertion is nothing but pure logical fallacy. Although their is a direct correlation between cigarettes and lung cancer, their is no direct correlation, or scientific evidence, that can support the premise guns CAUSE violence. It’s preposterous when one thinks about it.

But preposterous works on “low information voters.” This is nothing more than an emotional appeal in an effort to infringe on the right of Americans to bear Arms, period.
