Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has joined the ranks of those seeking to disarm Americans by calling for guns to be illegal in the U.S. In a series of tweets from the man who rules the country which is the largest state sponsor of terrorism, Khamenei said:

“In US, 100s are killed every week by homicide for no crime,—no reason—not at the hands of police, as US police brutality is a separate issue. The accessibility of guns leads to homicide; it’s created problems for a country like US, everyone admits, fears, & is concerned about it. 

“No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What’s the solution? It’s to make guns illegal.”


Thanks for the advice, Ali. We’re sure it was made in the spirit of altruism. But, no thanks.

Kinda reminds us of the time, just a few months before 9/11, that Saddam Hussein offered to send his lieutenants — oops, “aid workers” — to America’s impoverished inner cities to dole out relief money.

Nuff said.
