“You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.” This quote is attributed to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto during World War II, and is often repeated by gun advocates as to why the Japanese never invaded the U.S. It’s also bullshit.
There is no record of Admiral Yamamoto saying this, which means extreme gun advocates are in need of an authentic quote for their latest social media memes. Thankfully, I have one in mind.
“People seem to have this really, really evil impression of an AR-15…” Fox News’ Sean Hannity said in a recent interview with gun advocate, Sarah Merkle. Yes, Sean, people tend to have unpleasant opinions about a weapon recently used to kill 20 elementary school children. I know, it’s crazy.
