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.

It’s almost like a free energy machine for bias.

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.

 

Save conservative media!

Ilhan Omar Married Her Brother to Get Him ‘Papers’ Needed for School In America, Friend Says

This has reportedly been confirmed…

A person found guilty of marriage fraud can face up to five years in jail and a $250,000 fine. There’s a decent chance Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar committed marriage fraud but since she’s a Democrat politician, she’ll probably never serve a second behind bars, let alone be charged of wrongdoing. More and more evidence continues to leak, proving that Omar has no business in Congress. This latest bit of bombshell news regarding her marriage to her brother comes from one of her friends. From Daily Mail: ‘Squad’ congresswoman Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm. And now for the first time one of those friends has come forward to reveal exactly how Omar and Ahmed Elmi scandalized the Somali community in Minneapolis. Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States, at a time when she was married to her first husband Ahmed Hirsi. […] Omar and Elmi eventually divorced in 2017 and she remarried Hirsi — with whom she had a third child — in a civil ceremony the following year, just in time for her election to Congress.

Watch: Biden Says His Son ‘Was Attorney General of the United States’ — Flat Out Lies On CNN

Oh, wow! This is something else…

John Salvatore

Published

Okay, it is officially past time for Joe Biden to drop out of the 2020 presidential race. The man just isn’t playing with a full deck. It’s sad to see but also so blatantly obvious, at this point. The former VP can’t remember even the simple things. Do you recall a time in American history when Beau Biden, Joe’s deceased son, was attorney general of the United States? If so, during which administration? How long did he serve in the role, exactly? Oh, Joe. He said, “My son, the one who, my deceased son, was the Attorney General of the United States, and before that, he was a federal prosecutor in one of the largest offices in the country in Philadelphia.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1230665048265252867?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230665048265252867&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjohn-krasinski-on-critics-of-his-military-roles-ill-always-respect-people-who-put-their-lives-on-the-line-for-people-like-me REACTIONS: https://twitter.com/Non_Snowflake/status/1230668996216786944 https://twitter.com/LindaSuhler/status/1230666740079529984 https://twitter.com/djgiglio/status/1230667810809970690 https://twitter.com/vfx_dude/status/1230669989205536768 https://twitter.com/WKiraW/status/1230666957277552643 https://twitter.com/M_Quintilian/status/1230668695250374656 Biden is promising one term in the White House, if his health declines while in office. Not a joke. From Washington Examiner: Joe Biden said that he would not seek a second term as president if his health deteriorates while in office. Who does Biden think he’s kidding? The guy may or may not be gifted the Democrat nomination for president, despite little to no real opposition. That’s how weak the 2020 field truly is. And yet, he thinks he can go without Barack Obama’s endorsement? Well, Joe, you’re already a twice-failed presidential candidate. You’d think you would want all the help you can get. Joe says no, though. He doesn’t want Barry’s name attached to his candidacy, despite dropping Obama’s name at every campaign stop whenever he gets the chance. https://twitter.com/politico/status/1201667679347773440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201667679347773440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/acoustic_guitr/status/1201668647602806785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201668647602806785&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F https://twitter.com/KimbrlyKrautter/status/1201668740829589504?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201668740829589504&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F https://twitter.com/TLeebrul/status/1201667959443333121?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201667959443333121&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F https://twitter.com/trish4thepeople/status/1201668198455754752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201668198455754752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F https://twitter.com/aughtnom/status/1201668303405469696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201668303405469696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F02%2Fjoe-biden-tells-reporters-he-doesnt-need-an-obama-endorsement-while-aboard-his-no-malarkey-bus%2F
