So this is what all the gun shops around here have been looking like. Bare.
Gun buyers are acting like ninnies, I swear…
This is completely fucked up:
News media types are screaming about how, at a hearing in Hartford, one of the fathers of a Sandy Hook victim was “heckled by a pro-gun member of the crowd.”
And that would be sick and disgusting. That would be deplorable. Lowest of the low.
But that’s not what happened.
The video being passed around was edited. Very hard. Here’s the real video:
He asked a question:
“I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips. [Pause, waiting for response.] Not one person can answer that question.”
Audience members: ”[Unintelligible] Second Amendment shall not be infringed”
Public official: “Please no comments while Mr. Heslin is speaking. Or we’ll clear the room. Mr. Heslin please continue.”
That’s not heckling. He asked a question, and received an answer. Nobody taunted him, or heckled him. Nobody was heartless in answering his question.
The media is fucking playing us. And for those of you who want to scream “LIBERAL MEDIA,” I again remind you that I am a liberal. I am a Liberal who strongly supports the 2nd Amendment. There is no left wing bias in the media. There is no right wing bias. The only bias the popular media has is one of SENSATIONALISM. They want you to be outraged, and they want you afraid. That’s what sells.
It’s only going to get worse from here, folks.
[ADD] O hay, just shakin’ the cup again. My birthday tattoo fund drive is still ongoing – if you got a dollar to spare, i’d much appreciate it.
