Twitter, that perpetual giver of enough rope, strikes again:
“I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes wishing they had an AR-15 with a hi-capacity magazine?”

I would like to apologize to the people of Boston & Massachusetts for the poor timing of my tweet earlier this morning. As a staunch and unwavering supporter of the individual right to self defense, I expressed my point of view without thinking of its effect on those still in time of crisis. In hindsight, given the ongoing tragedy that is still unfolding, I regret the poor choice of timing. Please know that my thoughts and prayers were with the people of Boston overnight and will continue as they recover from this tragedy.
Poor timing?! Yeah, your time was 1861.
I love how tragedy brings out the true colors of these types. And the notion that the manhunt would have gone better if there had been bands of yahoos armed with AR-15s roaming the streets.
Here’s how we cower, Nate:
