Chris Matthews opened Hardball with video from the past two days of Jim Yeager, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh defending the second amendment. David Corn says Rush is "inviting John Wilkes Booth..." Matthews says Rush should know better. Matthews also introduced the segment (usually rebroadcast at 7:00 PM EST) by saying he was "going to nut country" and said that was a quote from JFK just before he went to Dallas for the last time.
Right before Hardball, Martin Bashir said that the report that the armed officer assigned to the school that were the latest shooting occurred wasn't there because he was snowed-in "proves" that armed officers at schools are not the solution.
Matthews announced at the end of the segment that it is being reported that Jim Yeager has had his TN conceal carry permit yanked.
According to Bashir the cop not being there proves it wouldn’t have made a difference if the cop WAS there . Just one more thing that proves liberals and their voters are stupid.
If anyone is inviting it, I’d say it’s Obama.
Does Mathews realize that Booth was a democrat and an actor?
I am beginning to wonder if he has some sort of brain distorter which is liquifying his grey matter.
They want him to look like Lincoln so bad.
...to further the cause, you know!
Who exactly is John Yeager and why should I care if he had his permit pulled.
Oh and Chris Matthews is an idiot.
I think his liquid problem involves Grey Goose.
I’ll pay for the theater tickets....
“I am beginning to wonder if he has some sort of brain distorter which is liquifying his grey matter.”
It’s called alcoholism.
Yup. Instead of uniting the nation, the nation is divided. No problem there as I detest and hate liberals.
Hey, Corn: What you really meant to say is that you and your pals would like to murder all of us. Now be honest for once in your life.
Sorry Cornball, if anyone is inviting a John Wilkes Booth, it’s Obama himself. Booth saw Lincoln as a tyrant, another Julius Caesar who had declared himself dictator for life. And like Brutus and the rest of Caesar’s assassins, Booth believed that by killing Lincoln, he would be ridding the country of an overzealous dictator. If Obama continues to abuse his executive powers, violate the Constitution, and take away the rights of American citizens, he’s putting a target on his own back.
Does that mean, “Death of a President” that mimicked the death of GWB, was merely “performance art?”
A little odd he should refer to Dallas as “nut country” when Oswald was one of his people, i.e. a pinko. Also, he was a New Orleanser. But, heckfire, I giss all them Suthners is the same, shyucks./s
Is this the old, diehard argument that JFK was killed by white, racist, Southern bumpkins (in a city of between half a milling and a million people) in retaliation for the civil rights act, or what?
They are gonna pull some Hwood skeet show and fake his way out.
I agree. See my comment at 14. I wrote it before I saw yours.
No, that was “positive social commentary” and film “dialogue.”
Looks like MSNBC is doing gun rights insurrection all night tonight.
Also on Martin Bashir’s program right before Hardball one panelist declared authoritatively that the founder’s couldn’t possibly have intended the 2A as a defense against the imposition of tyranny because the whole intent of the constitution was obviously to support the new government using lawful means laid out in the document.
Probably not news to seasoned 2A activists, another panelist said that the strict CA open carry while loaded act, the Mulford Act, was signed by Reagan in response to armed militia activities by the Black Panthers which this female black panelist said was supported by NRA.
The Mulford Act was a 1967 California bill prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms. Named after assemblyman Don Mulford, the bill garnered national attention after the Black Panthers marched on the California Capitol to protest the bill. The bill was signed by California Governor Ronald Reagan and became California penal code 12031 and 171(c).
