Of all the news networks, MSNBC probably ranks further left than even Trump-deranged CNN. Yet a recent segment on MSNBC didn’t go as planned as gun owners they interviewed panned the Democrat candidates for their gun control proposals on live television.
In fact, host Ali Velshi suffered the indignity of gun owners openly laughing at Robert Francis O’Rourke’s and others’ plans to buy back or confiscate their guns.
One African-American gun owner on the panel, pictured above, put it as succinctly as possible:
“Don’t mess with my rights to protect my family by trying to take away my firearms.”
The Daily Caller has the story:
A panel of gun owners laughed in the face of MSNBC host Ali Velshi when he asked what they thought of gun buyback proposals from Democratic politicians.
“Let me ask you about a proposal floated out there by a presidential candidate, or more, about gun buybacks. Who thinks that is a good idea?” Velshi asked. Several panelists immediately burst into laughter, while another mocked the question, joking: “I want mine for a million bucks, so if they’re willing to pay me that.”
As for socially “woke” companies throwing good guy gun owners (AKA customers) under the bus because of the acts of criminals, the individuals MSNBC assembled pointed out the obvious:
The panelists were also skeptical of some companies’ decisions to limit sales of firearms and ammunition to their customers. “People that want to get them and will get them, they’re still going to get them,” said one woman.
“So now this is their way out, to say, they can be the hero, we’re gonna get rid of all this stuff. Well, they were probably looking for a way to get rid of it anyway,” another panelist added.
Here’s a video clip of the best moments of the show:
Contrary to claims of big-city anti-gun bigots, gun owners don’t drag their knuckles on the ground. But they do have functioning brains. More significantly, gun owners have jobs — good jobs — and families. They spend money and they vote. Not only that, but they have friends who vote, too.
Many of the panelists indicated that the gun issue ranked number one or in the top three issues they’ll consider when voting in the coming presidential election. And they all strongly supported gun rights and the right to self-defense.
As we’ve seen with the failures of the Swalwell and O’Rourke campaigns, gun control isn’t playing in Peoria, either literally or figuratively. Most of America recognizes the proven benefits of firearm ownership for self-defense, much to the chagrin of this election cycle’s crop of wild-eyed Democrat presidential hopefuls.
