NBC host Chuck Todd must have grown up learning some different version of the U.S. Constitution, based on what he said this week about Americans’ right to keep and bear arms.
Todd, who like other left-wing ‘media’ types is hyper-focused on guns following a pair of recent mass shooting tragedies rather than what could motivate two young men to commit such terrible murders in the first place, insists that “thoughts and prayers” for victims is nothing and that the Second Amendment is a myth.
BizPac Review notes:
Giving credit where credit is due, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd managed quite succinctly to sum up the debate on gun control, but perhaps not in the way he intended.
Following the prescribed narrative of this week’s corporate media diktat, Todd began Sunday’s episode of “Meet the Press” on NBC News with an anti-Second Amendment and, more precisely, anti-conservative lament regarding the massacre in Uvalde, Texas. Where his peers had carried the weight of the Democrat Party with the standard misrepresentations of mass shooting statistics and the types of firearms responsible for most heinous crimes, Todd took aim at the culture.
“It’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy. Thought and prayers, nothing we can do,” the “Meet the Press” host said earlier this week. “No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers.”
As he furthered his argument, Todd claimed: “This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.”
We would note as well that no one in Todd’s favorite political party, the Democrats, has proposed anything so broad as an outright ban on guns — because, of course, it would be struck down as unconstitutional due to that “absolute right” he claims “does not exist.”
“How do we allow an 18-year-old, in this case, Salvador Ramos, to buy assault rifles and accumulate more than 1600 rounds of ammunition, all legally, mind you,” Todd asked of his viewers. “Whether it’s guns, or climate change, or protecting our democracy, we no longer have a politics that can meet these crucial moments that we face.”
He then lamented: “No member of Congress has been voted out of office for being too pro-gun. Not one!”
But why would they be? Again, the Second Amendment is real, even if Todd says it isn’t. And by the way, it is the second amendment to the Constitution for a reason: It was that important to our nation’s founders that Americans never be denied the ability to prevent our central government from becoming too powerful and too tyrannical. That is really why it was adopted — not to provide early Americans with the means to hunt.
Todd then revealed the left’s political endgame when he said this: “So until the majorities who claim they want tougher background checks and to get assault weapons off the street, vote like they mean it, we can expect to hear more calls for thoughts and prayers and that’s it.”
Translation: ‘Until we repeal the Second Amendment and get guns out of the hands of American citizens, we will have tragedies.’
At least uber-leftist filmmaker Michael Moore is honest about that:
