Uh oh! MSNBC still haven’t learned their lesson (see Trump Puts NBC on Blast for False Reporting About Rex Tillerson). They’re on a roll, tossing aside logic for the sake of virtue signaling. Like Stephanie Ruhle in the interview below. In the wake of the Vegas shooting, she sounded off on the dangers of gun silencers (which are actually called “suppressors” but words schmords) — which the NRA wants to make more available, the nerve on them. The only problem is Stephies knows diddly squat about suppressors or guns.
She just made herself look like an unabashed anus. Behold, the sphincter speaks!
Przybyla: Think about what was happening right before this massacre took place. We have a Congress, here in Washington DC, that was … preparing to loosen gun regulations, to allow people to use these silencers, to make them more available.
Ruhle: BECAUSE THE HUNTERS! THEIR EARS WERE HURTING! BECAUSE THOSE HUNTERS! THEIR EARS WERE HURTING!
Przybyla: …Imagine how much worse that would have made the situation there, Stephanie. If, for example, the officials, the people in that hotel couldn’t tell where that gunfire was coming from and to quickly apprehend that man to stop him from slaughtering even more people.
Firstly, lets all take a moment to chuckle at that display.
In case you had any doubts as to just how biased MSNBC is, this was supposed to be an “objective” discussion about legislative response to the shooting. I know, I know, it’s a silly premise. MSNBC hates objective reporting almost as much as Antifa hates personal hygiene.
There was plenty of nonsense being sputtered all at once, but the main takeaway is this: gun silencers would not have made the Las Vegas shooting any worse. Even Politifact has admitted this. Contrary to the belief of leftist hags, a silencer (ahem, SUPPRESSOR, but let’s use their words) does not make the gun silent, ladies. It reduces sound to protect the shooter’s hearing but the sound is still clearly audible. Factoring in the distance of the shooter from the crowds, the environment, and the way gun silencers actually work, suggests a suppressor would have done zero to worsen the situation.
Alas, such thoughts are far too complex for leftist media to grasp. Hence the silly dancing and mockery.
This is simply the left’s latest attempt to harness FEELZ to squash out personal rights and freedoms. To hear them tell it, if you’re for guns or any gun accessories, you’re for mass shootings. It’s an easy argument to make when one ignores paltry details (like the facts we went over above) in favor of morally superior virtue signaling.
The gun control debate comes down to an argument between those who are informed about guns and those who are not. I’m sure you can guess which group MSNBC falls into.
