Stupid Right-Wing Tweets: Ted Nugent Edition

The right-wing's daily Two Minutes of Hate is being directed on Twitter today at Bob Costas. Why? Because he dared to say on national television that, contrary to what wingers and glibertarians been saying for decades, guns actually do kill people.

This has predictably led gun fetishists like Ted Nugent to tweet a great deal of stupidity. As far as I can tell, around half of these SRWTs are just calling Costas names -- and the other half (including Nugent's) are of the A NAIL FILE CAN KILL YOU SO SHOULD WE OUTLAW THOSE TOO COSTAS?! variety.

What isn't in dispute is the following:

A) Countries with lots of guns have lots of gun-related deaths.
B) Countries without lots of guns don't.

But...but...freedom!
