Not content with letting social media sites police content on their own, five Democratic U.S. Senators have sent letters to the heads of major tech companies urging them to “proactively” block users from accessing blueprints for 3-D printed guns.
As Vermont Democratic gubernatorial nominee Christine Hallquist appeared as a guest on MSNBC Live with Ali Velshi, the MSNBC host went along with his liberal guest's premise that liberal policies should not be labeled as "progressive" as the liberal host referred to his Canadian roots and suggested that liberalism just be called "normal." Notably, a bit later in the segment, the graphics team made a faux pas as an image of Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker appeared on screen while they were discussing the approval rating of Vermont Republican Governor Phil Scott.
No matter how many times gun issues are discussed and debated, the difference between semi-automatic and automatic guns just doesn't sink in with some journalists. As CBS This Morning co-host Alex Wagner spoke with a group of six millennial women voters, when panel members gave the impression that semi-automatic weapons are the same as machine guns, and that machine guns are currently legal for most people to own, the CBS host and MSNBC alumna failed to jump in to make sure viewers were not being misinformed.
A long article in the New York Times Sunday Styles, “Civility and Culture Wars In an Iowa Gun Town – When neighbors disagree but a major voice remains silent.” Jacqui Shine left big hints that Iowans are just too nice to properly confront the NRA board chairman in their midst, “Pete Brownell, a well-known and well-liked local philanthropist....He is also the third-generation C.E.O. of Brownells, a major firearms company whose headquarters are here....His public remarks have been unsurprising in the national conversation, but also strike some as unneighborly."
The news media loves to talk about guns, just not when they're used to save lives. Take for instance the fear mongering over 3D printed guns that took over network and cable news coverage last week, or the coverage of the tragic fatal shooting that took place over a parking spot dispute in Florida a few weeks back. But this past weekend, a major mass shooting that could have ended in numerous casualties and injuries was prevented by a good guy with a gun, and the liberal networks had nothing to say about it.
3D printable guns are the catalyst for the next 9/11, or so says CNN Legal & National Security Analyst, Asha Rangappa. In the most recent bout of hysteria surrounding blueprints for the weapons being available to the public, liberals are doubling down any way they can.
For days, the liberal media have been experiencing a Chernobyl level meltdown about a Texas company releasing online instructions for 3D printing plastic weapons that actually fire real bullets. Of course, none of them did their homework and spewed inaccurate nonsense in an effort to stoke public fear of guns. After a liberal judge in Seattle blocked the release on Tuesday, the broadcast networks sang their praises with one network touting Democrats who said President Trump had blood on his hands.
On Monday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, viewers got to see another case which demonstrates that the purpose of a Republican or right-leaning MSNBC contributor is to avoid disagreeing too aggressively with the more stridently liberal commentators as contributor and former Ted Cruz aide Rick Tyler failed to counter claims that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has "radical" views on abortion and gun rights.
It was only a matter of time before the liberal media’s derangement got so out of control that they would start accusing the entire conservative movement of working for Russian interests, and it finally happened. During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd used the recent indictment of Russian national, Marina Butina to suggest that not only was the National Rifle Association infiltrated by Russians but “all levels of the conservative movement” were as well.
In the long hot summer of television, gun control hasn’t been a big issue in the news media, which is not acceptable to its rabid cousins in the world of entertainment. Take for example, a show called The Bold Type, that airs on Freeform about young women working at a magazine in New York City. Two roommates and workmates who get into an argument. Jane finds out Sutton (who comes from rural Pennsylvania) has a shotgun in the apartment. Jane lectures Sutton that “half the country knows that our lawmakers are bought by the NRA and think that gun ownership is barbaric.” At the episode’s end, Sutton actually melts down her shotgun to make earrings.
Over the past several days, the broadcast networks and CNN have shown a blatant double standard in showing more interest in a concealed carry holder who may have abused his right to self-defense by picking a fight with a man before shooting him, in contrast with several other cases from recent weeks in which gun owners more sympathetically used their weapons to defend themselves against unprovoked attacks.
