Disgraced former talking head Dan Rather turned up on CNN recently for some reason. There, before dozens of devoted viewers, he echoed the anti-gun media’s party line regarding America’s downright déclassé and frightfully embarrassing tendency to value and avail ourselves of our Second Amendment rights.
Rather said on Friday’s “CNN Tonight” show with Don Lemon: “This story is not new. This story happens all too often, and the fact that we haven’t done anything really to come to grips with it is — despicable is the only word that comes to mind. And it speaks to our lack of honor and patriotism, in this sense: This is a national health epidemic. And can you imagine, Don, what it would be, of instead of guns, we had an outbreak of an Ebola epidemic? We the public, we the people, and our political representatives would be behaving in a completely different manner.”
