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.

White House Reveals Details Of Plan To Ship 150 Million Rapid Virus Tests To States

Published

on

According to brand new reports, states are set to receive 6.5 million rapid coronavirus tests this week, thanks to a plan detailed by President Trump on Monday, calling the move a “game changer” that will enable leadership in those states to provide better protection for first responders and to reopen schools. The whole idea of reopening schools has been something of a hot button issue as of late, despite the mountain of evidence that supports children not having severe issues with the virus like high-risk adults do. Here’s more from the Washington Times: Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican, thanked Mr. Trump for the BinaxNOW tests. He said the 15-minute turnaround time will allow him to screen K-12 schoolteachers daily instead of weekly. “We want to get 100% of our kids back in the classroom,” Mr. Reeves said in the White House Rose Garden. All told, 100 million of the Abbott tests will be sent to states. Governors can use them as they see fit, though the White House wants them to keep K-12 schools open, support critical infrastructure and first responders and stamp out local flare-ups of COVID-19. Mr. Trump said the other 50 million tests will go to nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and historically Black colleges and universities as part of an effort to protect the most vulnerable. He said the shipments will be a “massive and groundbreaking” expansion of the nation’s testing. Despite what mainstream media outlets have had to say about the Trump administrations handling of the coronavirus, the president has done a fantastic job. He’s refused to abuse his power and get involved in state affairs, allowing governors to handle the bulk of the work just as the Constitution calls for. And, for the most part, the majority of governors seem to have done fairly…

David Hogg Issues Apology For Condemning Violence Carried Out By Non-White People: ‘It’s Not My Place’

Published

on

Leftism continues to prove that it is indeed some sort of wacky mental disorder by showcasing just how impossible it is to hold this view and be consistent. The latest case in point comes to us from anti-gun activist and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg. Hogg made some comments about condemning violent acts and seemed to allude this included acts perpetrated by individuals who weren’t white as well. Seems like a reasonable, principled, consistent take. Kind of unusual for this guy. But, after he got pressure from folks, he walked that back and said “it’s not my place” to condemn those violent acts done by people of color. Sigh. via Daily Wire: “Young people can stage a nonviolent political revolution over the coming decade but it will require all of us voting in consistently high # EVERY election, protesting, organizing and running for office and most importantly the persistence, love and community to overcome setbacks,” Hogg tweeted on Monday morning. “To do so we must all practice the humility, kindness and grace to be the political leaders we need to be in order to create such change.” “We must not fall for the slander espoused by those in power that says violence will solve our problems, they only say that so they can have an excuse to grow their authoritarianism. I have seen how violence and hate destroys lives and communities- it is not the answer,” he continued. “The use of violence to acquire political power is deeply rooted in imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy[.] I personally refuse to believe that the use of this same violence will ever create nonviolent systems of government that represent and support everyone.” https://twitter.com/davidhogg111/status/1310581905591590914 https://twitter.com/davidhogg111/status/1310591353445810177 Hogg later clarified that his comments are only directed at “young white people” who have used the protests and…
