John Kerry adds his guffaw-inspiring gravitas to the Left’s jihad against our constitutional right to bear arms:
“We had an interesting discussion about why fewer students are coming to, particularly from Japan, to study in the United States, and one of the responses I got from our officials from conversations with parents here is that they’re actually scared. They think they’re not safe in the United States and so they don’t come,” Kerry said.
He noted Japan’s restrictive gun laws — which prevent private ownership of nearly all firearms, including handguns — and said the country was safer “where people are not running around with guns.”
That must explain why people feel so much safer in the savage cesspool liberals have made of Chicago, where the Second Amendment is almost entirely ignored.
For those interested in the real reasons there has been a decline in students from Japan:
Experts have attributed the decline to Japan’s low birthrate, the expense of foreign study in a poor economy, and a desire among Japanese young people to remain at home rather than venture to other countries.
Once Thomas Jefferson held the position of Secretary of State. Now the job of representing the USA to the rest of the world is held by this reflexively anti-American kook. There isn’t much Hope, but there has been plenty of Change.
