The gun debate rages on, if a “debate” is what you’d even call it. As usual, it consists of conservatives quoting the Second Amendment, while leftists rapid fire ad hominem attacks toward NRA “child murderers.” Then, there’s this MSNBC panel who thinks pro-gun people are a bunch of racists who need to just die already.
On Sunday’s AM Joy, during a discussion of recent mass shootings and gun control, host Joy Reid set up frequent guest Kurt Bardella to cheer for the deaths of Fox News viewers as host Reid described the “world view” advanced by conservative media as being “crusty” and “creepy.”
The MSNBC host also fretted over the tendency of Republicans to bring up the high homicide rate in Chicago during discussions of gun control, with panel member Tiffany Cross of The Beat D.C. suggesting racism as she called “Chicago” a “euphemism for black.”
The dreaded race card!
Actually, there’s no euphemism whatsoever. Just a triple-digit pile of bodies in one of the America’s biggest “gun free zones.” Whether the victims are white, black, or khaki is irrelevant. Nice try, though. The panel gets an “A” for effort.
Here’s where it gets even better:
Bardella responded: “I think there is some credence to the idea that, at some point, just the process of evolution, some of these viewers, they are going to thankfully die off, and that’ll be the end of that.”
Yeah, not quite. Parkland may have yielded the left an army of underaged, effete soy aficionados. This much is true. On the other hand, NRA membership is surging. The difference being the NRA members are of voting and gun-buying age. Also, contrary to leftists’ beliefs, not all gun owners are octogenarians with Life Alert bracelets who buy gold from William Devane.
The left wishes for pro-gun peeps to shuffle off this mortal coil and take the Second Amendment with them. Methinks that won’t be happening for quite some time. Until then, they’ll just have to continue their attempts at reinterpreting the “true” meaning of the amendment.
