Now, this is a great argument AGAINST gun control. In a series of tweets issued Sunday, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Supremes, er…the Supreme Leader of Iran and buddy of former President Barack Obama, advocated for gun control in the United States.

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

His answer: Make guns illegal.

“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,” he tweeted.

Or we can do what the supreme leader does in his own country, just cut people’s hands off.

He wasn’t finished echoing typical liberal talking points (which he probably learned while negotiating with his good buddy Barack:

Not only is his statement false, but ironically in Iran, no one dare speak about the Supreme Leader in less than glowing terms.

“Now, why or why would Khamenei want Americans disarmed? Surely he’s just worried about our safety and well-being, right?” Twitchy asked sarcastically.

Ben Shapiro weighed in: “Let’s listen to the evil dictator who likes grabbing guns.”

Twitchy went on to say that leftists will probably cheer Khamenei “because he agrees with disarming and making us defenseless.”

Sadly, that’s probably quite true.

Exit question: How long before Barack Obama is invited to meet with Iran’s Supreme Leader? After all, they agree about gun control in America AND they agree about destroying Israel.
