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.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
