Everybody relax. An NBC News analyst has this whole Orlando mess figured out.
The problem is your right to keep and bear arms.
I know, I know, I know.
Who’d a thunk a mainstream media wigglejaw would’ve went there following a deadly shooting?
But that’s exactly what Joy Reid did this morning on Meet the Depressed.
“We have mass casualty shooting that are affecting children, teachers, people in church, so whether it’s a hate crime or whether it’s related to something related to international terrorism, we’re not getting to the core issue, which is how easy it is to get a gun,” she wretched. “I mean Florida happens to have the largest gun owning population in the country and some of the most lax laws as to how you can get your hands on an assault rifle, so if you mean to do harm. We’re talking about a state with 1.4 million law abiding gun owners. But we’re not talking about that issue. Right now the only debate that’s taking place in the state of Florida, is the Supreme Court weighing whether to allow complete open carry.”
Weird, though, that “how easy it is to get a gun” wasn’t a factor in the Muslim terror attacks in Paris last year.
That’s because Paris has strict gun control laws and left its citizens defenseless when armed jihadis shot at them.
Maybe there’s another “core issue” that has nothing to do with guns.
If only all these terror attacks had something in common…
