Liberals are expressing gratitude that the Manhattan terrorist did not have a real gun during his attack, and some are even giving credit to New York’s strict gun laws.

Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times columnist and frequent guest on MSNBC, asserted that the death toll would have been higher if the terrorist had an “assault rifle.” Kristof also suggested the only reason the terrorist did not have an assault rifle is because you cannot purchase one in New York City.

There is no evidence thus far that the attacker, who killed 8 people with a truck, ever tried to purchase a firearm in the state of New York or elsewhere.

“He literally didn’t have a gun so the gun control in NYC worked,” an MTV actor asserted.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal said on CNN shortly after the attack that it was “fortunate” that the attacker didn’t have an “assault weapon” because more people would have died otherwise.
