Amidst almost total agreement on commonsense gun regulations, Martin O’Malley has an O’Meltdown.

After fireworks failed to materialize over the Sanders-Clinton data breach affair, Martin O’Malley made it his mission to instigate a clash over gun control. 

Responding to a question about his position on gun control, Sanders remarked that an “overwhelming majority say we should strengthen background checks. Who denies that it is crazy to allow people to own guns who are criminals or who are mentally unstable? We have to see weapons designed by the military to kill people are not in the hands of people.” He added that while the country is “divided on guns,” there is “broad consensus on sensible gun safety regulations.”

The moderators seemed ready to move on. Sanders seemed ready to move on. But Martin O’Malley was not ready to move on, and launched into a tirade against ISIS recruitment videos featuring recommendations that jihadists in the U.S. access assault weapons at gun shows. Y’know, the kind of thing Sanders and Clinton have already said they would shut down.
