Sick CBS Hacks Rejoiced After Dem Loses It On GOP Congressman [Video]
It’s disheartening to witness how the liberal media and politicians are utilizing the tragedy of Monday’s Nashville Christian school shooting to advance their radical far-left gun control policies. On Thursday, CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today focused on gun control, instead of exploring the possible gender identity and motives of the shooter.
Politicians like far-left Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) also took part in the push for gun control. On Wednesday, he had a heated exchange with Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) for refusing to pass gun control legislation.
CBS co-host Gayle King opened her show’s “Eye Opener” by highlighting First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Nashville “amid passionate pleas on Capitol Hill for changes to gun laws.” She then played a clip of Bowman’s outburst, where he asked if Massie was “listening to what I’m saying.”
King circled back to this again in the show, noting that any change to our gun laws is still a tough sell for those Republicans “[d]espite more than 130 mass shootings this year.” She cited the Gun Violence Archive, which has been repeatedly called out for manipulating their numbers.
King went on to praise a back-and-forth between Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-FL). Greene argued for protecting our children the same way we protect our President, we protect our celebrities, we protect this building, while Moskowitz directly blamed Republicans for the six dead because they ended the assault weapons ban.
King concluded by saying that President Biden continues to push for reinstatement of the assault weapons ban that Congress let expire back in 2004, but with Republicans in control of the House, it’s “looking very unlikely.” However, numerous research studies, such as the ones done by the RAND Corporation, have concluded that a ban’s effectiveness “is inconclusive.”
On NBC, correspondent Catie Beck combined the call for gun control into her report from Nashville on both the investigation and vigils for the lives lost, saying those came amid “a growing call for change stretches from Nashville to Washington where a renewed push for gun control legislation led to this heated exchange.”
Beck then showed a snippet of the Bowman exchange, followed by his statement that Republicans “won’t do anything to save the lives of our children” and “more guns leads to more death.”
Beck added that “House Democrats are calling for a new assault weapons ban with little to no support from Republicans who control that chamber.”
It’s unacceptable to see the liberal media and politicians using tragedies like Monday’s shooting to push for far-left gun control policies. The truth is that gun control does not reduce crime.
The only real way to protect our children is to ensure that they are in a safe environment and that they are properly trained to use firearms. It’s also important to remember that the right to bear arms is in the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and that the government should not be allowed to violate the rights of law-abiding Americans.
