When you hear gentle music in the background of a TV news package about a shooting death it’s a sure sign that the producer is pro-civilian disarmament. It’s only a matter of time before the announcer says something along the lines of “the bereaved parents are looking to pass Nicholas’ Bill in New York State.” You know; some gun control bill that would have saved the young boy or girl’s life. No mention’s made of the legislation’s downside, or the fact that the new law violates the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. Ah, but this time, on Fox & Friends, Tucker Carlson was there to put the report in a less flattering light . . .
“The point of that package was, guns are scary, gun owners are a threat to you and your children,” Carlson told this couch mates.
Carlson points out that more children drown in bathtubs than in accidental shootings, and asked why Fox didn’t focus on tub death.
“I’d like to see a package on ‘Do you have a bathtub at home? Because I need to know that before I send my child over to your house. A little perspective might be helpful.”
And so it was.
