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.
