MSNBC’s Attempt At Attacking the Second Amendment Falls Flat

MSNBC Tried, And FAILED to use the Annapolis shooting to advance the gun control narrative.

Given some of the bizarre rhetoric that we’ve heard from the mainstream media regarding guns in 2018, it goes without saying that their research skills on the subject could use some polishing.

Of course, this is directed ignorance, selective amnesia.  The left should and likely does know better, but, in the media, conflict sells.  This means that the dumbing down of the public with liberal ideologies is a self-serving cycle for the likes of CNN and others.

Make liberal miscreants and woeful idiots.  Unleash them on the world.  Let them create chaos.  Report on the chaos.  Sell advertisements.  Repeat.

So, it really should come as no surprise that MSNBC attempted to use the shooting at the Capital Gazette as a way to attack the Second Amendment.  During their “analysis” of how shotguns work, we were treated to a treasure trove of information named Pete Williams.

NBC correspondent Pete Williams employed an interesting analogy on Friday when trying to describe how shotguns work.

According to Williams, describing the gun used by the shooter in the Capital Gazette newsroom on Thursday, insisted that shotguns operate like a “backwards funnel.”

“A shotgun, uh, uh, you know, if you’re not familiar with a shotgun, it sets out a spray of pellets and because a bullet simply goes in a straight line and shotgun is sort of like a backwards funnel, it spreads it out so that you don’t have to aim very precisely,” Williams claimed on MSNBC on Friday. “It can do a lot of damage to the people that you aim it at, but you don’t fire a lot of rounds with a shotgun, so I think that has something to do with it.”

The left was so upset that they wouldn’t have an opportunity to scare Americans with pictures of AR-15’s that they completely ignored the reality of shotguns in favor of a horrible analogy.

If we can’t get the media to do their research, especially on such simple points, how on earth can we trust them?  They’ll rail against the “fake news” moniker, but then trot Pete Williams out there to tell me what frat boy beer accessory a shotgun most closely resembles.

Well, Pete, let me try my hand at this and explain to you why the left’s gun analogies are bogus:

All semi-automatic guns are like shot glasses, in that you only get one projectile per trigger pull.  So, that would make everything outside of machine guns a shot glass.

No backwards funnel.  No “assault” shot glasses.  No magical rounds steering their way around their targets.  Just shot glasses.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
