The rabid, anti-gun Left has been harping about gun regulation for months now, with activists, Hollywood celebrities and Democrats all screaming their heads off. We even were forced to endure the requisite multi-celebrity PSA, an approach which has become way beyond tiresome at this point.
However, there’s a reason these attempts all failed: they are astoundingly ham-handed and transparent, even to folks who aren’t dedicated defenders of the 2nd Amendment.
Although there are myriad previous examples, we just saw this anew with California Senator Barbara Boxer.
As always with her ilk, she’s purporting to seek “justice” for shooting victims. But just as they did with their anti-war stance when Bush was in office (which mysteriously vanished as soon as their guy took over), this is just another example of the Left using a situation to further their own selfish political goals:
You heard that correctly: in Boxer’s mind, an episode like Sandy Hook or Santa Monica provides the “Wind At Their Back”. Does this sound like someone who is truly trying to seek justice, or rather is it a politician who is blatantly exploiting a tragedy?
No need to bother answering that one.
So to cleanse the palate, I’m including not one but TWO clips which highlight the inanity of the Gun Control argument, and the hypocrisy of the anti-gun Hollywood Left itself.
First up is our old buddy, Colion Noir from the NRA. He seems destined for a bigger gig than this someday soon, since he leaves you wanting to hear more from him with every installment. And the second one is an old (but still very clever) video, back when those text-to-movie clips were popping up on a daily basis all over YouTube.
***UPDATE: 6-12-2013 at 5:08pm –
I missed this earlier. It seems that “Gun Control Fever” was sweeping the studio this past weekend, as MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry got into the act, as well:
NICHOLS: Can I say something else that plays into it, just a quick one? I know this is a tough one. Because if I was one of these parents, I would want to not have this discussion. There’s an immediate rush in to say let’s not politicize this event. Let’s have a decent period where we don’t talk about it –
HARRIS-PERRY: But, yea, we want to politicize it.
NICHOLS: But whether you want to or not, the bottom line is that when we shut the dialogue down and when we slow the process down, that benefits the status quo.
“…we want to politicize it…“??
These people truly have no shame. On the bright side, at least Harris-Perry is honest about it.
