Liberals Make Gun Debate About Race
Sixty-five percent of Americans — two out of three — in a Rasmussen survey recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom, that it’s not about hunting.
Sixty-five percent see gun rights as protection against tyranny. Now, I know many of you wish that 65% were higher. Right now, given where we are elsewhere, I will take that number. I’ll take it. That is a number that’s not gonna sit well with the Democrats and the media after all of the attention that guns and the Second Amendment have received, with all of the literally living-in-a-different-world comments from people like Bob Schieffer and Tom Brokaw. What was it, Schieffer compared taking out the NRA to taking out Hitler!
Tom Brokaw, the anchor emeritus at NBC News, has compared getting rid of the Second Amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1965. I swear, these people get attached to stories. I’m gonna tell you right now: What happened with the Dr. King and the Civil Rights Act and the marches in the sixties is still perhaps, for certain-aged media people, the most formative experience in their professional lives, and everything gets related back to that. As far as Brokaw’s concerned, we’re still living in the sixties, and we’re still dealing with Selma. “Sel-muh!”
