Democrats Trying To Disarm America Demonstrate Their Ignorance On Guns

Written by:

Published on: March 10, 2018

If you’re like me, you are sick and tired of listening to Democrats dissemble about guns.

It’s not that they don’t have a right to their opinions, they do. If they have a real, principled stand against firearms, they should speak out and defend their views.

My problem with the vast majority of Democrats who get on TV and whine and moan about guns and such, is that they don’t ever seem to have the first clue about them.

And, I mean, they don’t have the first clue.

TRENDING ON SONS OF LIBERTY MEDIA

In fact, the Democrats and their partners in the media are so awful on guns that one conservative actually developed a helpful primer on the subject for them.

The very funny and very talented folks at the Washington Free Beacon have done the entire world a favor by putting together this brilliant supercut of Democrats and the media talking about guns. Almost everything in the video is wrong, and gloriously so… the Democrats are simply dumbfounded when it comes to guns.

Here are just a few of the best flubs from the video:

  • Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz discussing the danger of “high-capacity, rapid-fire magazines.”
  • Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich decrying “gas-assisted receiver firearms.”
  • Obama reasonably calling for getting “automatic weapons that kill folks in amazing numbers” out of bad guys’ hands.
  • CNN’s instantly infamous “full semi-automatic” AR-15.
  • “Jumbo clips.”
  • Fox News’ Tucker Carlson calling out a congresswoman for having no idea what she’s voting on.
  • Hillary Clinton simply wanting to “protect toddlers from guns.”
  • Obama declaring it’s “easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
  • Democrat Dianne Feinstein claiming that it’s “legal to hunt humans” . . .

This is just the latest in a long line of stupidity from the left. A few months ago, in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, they had a similar fit of inane, random utterances.

Like when a Democrat invents a firearm accessory that has no basis in reality.

New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) did just this when he made an appearance on MSNBC.

There are a couple of things I can think of that I think are possible now. Increasing age limits. Certainly somebody who’s 18, 19, 20 years old shouldn’t be able to purchase an assault rifle, an AR-15 or other gas-assisted receiver firearms when they can’t buy a simple handgun, so that should be changed.

Um, what? There is no such thing as a “gas-assisted receiver firearm.”

Or in this video, where we find a whole different set of obviously stupid statements.

  • During a CNN panel a Wall Street Journal reporter manages to get his facts exactly the opposite of accurate. “If you put a ban on the floor of these that would ban a device that turns something into an automatic weapon, then even the initial question is ‘why not a full ban on all automatic weapons,’ which is not the case. Anything made after ’85 is legal right now.” Literally, the exact opposite is true. All automatic weapons have been illegal for more than 30 years.

  • Again, at CNN, during a discussion of “bump-stocks” the network displayed a graphic of a rifle that had a suppressor and a grenade launcher… but not a bump-stock.
  • On MSNBC, some talking head says it’s easier to buy 50 AK-47’s than it was to purchase cough medicine. This is ridiculous. In most of the country there is a background check and a waiting period of at least 3 days, unless you have a conceal carry permit. If you have a permit it means you’ve submitted to an extensive background check already. To buy cough medicine… you just need an I.D.

Some reporters who don’t like wasting their time inventing weird, new gun terms, just blame the NRA instead. Which is ridiculous.

Other reporters say forget the facts, just mock gun owners and push gun control.

But even these examples are nothing new, are they? The media has been bungling guns(on purpose?) for a very long time.

Whether it’s so-called experts wildly misrepresenting the function and purpose of certain firearms accessories, reporters wildly misrepresenting recent gun-policy changes, or broadcasters outright advocating for new gun-control measures, it was not a banner day for journalism. Things got to the point where a reporter from an ostensibly objective, major-media outlet publicly advocated journalists move beyond mere “facts,” which he scare-quoted for effect, and into open advocacy. “Been a journo for a while now,” Cal Perry of NBC News tweeted. “It has become impossible to report just, ‘facts’ about gun violence. The fact is America needs gun control.”

Those examples, as bad as they are, just scratch the surface of incompetence and bias. And, of course, these mistakes and misrepresentations are all too common any time the media focuses on a firearms-related story. There is no way around it: The news industry is incomprehensibly inept at reporting on guns.

After so many “mistakes,” we have to start wondering if the media isn’t getting everything so wrong on purpose.

Over at Fox News, Stephen Miller says that’s exactly the case, the media has been getting everything wrong all these years… because they wanted to get it wrong.

America’s foremost health care expert, Jimmy Kimmel, once again repeated long-debunked Democrat talking points in another tearful monologue (Las Vegas is his hometown so it’s hard to berate him for showing emotion). Kimmel chastised Paul Ryan and the GOP Congress (again) for not enforcing laws about guns that literally do not exist. These include the so called “gunshow loophole,” an online background check loophole and allowing mentally ill individuals (a move supported by the ACLU) from purchasing firearms. All of these claims have been debunked and yet are ignored by fact-checkers at mainstream outlets and cable news pundits. Stephen Paddock did not have a criminal background, prior record and no evaluations of suspect mental health. So what then?

The terrible reporting really does get infuriating.

We conservatives are happy to debate ideas and to argue about philosophy or policy, but why in the world do we have to spend so much  time countering false narratives and disproving outright lies? Most of the leftwing pundits that the media uses to talk about guns, have no idea what they’re talking about, and we’re supposed to simply buy their nonsensical arguments? It’s even more frustrating when a knowledgeable conservative is forced to talk about the nonsense being spewed by his leftwing, anti-gun, no-nothing opponent.

Yea, it’s exactly like that.
