A Georgia radio talk show host told his listeners Tuesday that he would like nothing better than to shoot a National Rifle Association board member. He didn’t mention names, so I assume he’s an equal opportunity NRA board member shooter.
Liberal radio host Mike Malloy was all fired up about the Safe Carry Protection Act that the Georgia House had recently approved. The bill would extend the places in which licensed concealed carry holders could possess weapons.
He began his diatribe with an outright lie: “This organization founded by Gabrielle Giffords, you remember her, the former Arizona congresswoman that Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck suggested should be murdered….”
Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Immediately after the Giffords shooting, Palin emailed Beck that she hated violence. This was in response to Beck’s email that “peace is always the answer.”
So much for honest liberal radio commentary. I get the feeling this guy moonlights as a speechwriter for Harry Reid, the U.S. Senate majority leader.
He continued his rant:
The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere. Jesus Christ! I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of a sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real goddamned threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can!
He closed the segment with a flourish — a maniacal laugh that should have brought the men in white coats rushing to the station with sirens howling to take him away to his own padded cell. “Ha ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha!” You can listen to it here via Newsbusters.
On the one hand, progressives seem to always want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, on the other it generally turns out that they’re the violent ones.
Case in point: Also this week, a California lawmaker, who was a huge proponent of strict gun control legislation, was arrested by the FBI for trafficking weapons, including rocket launchers. It all kinda makes a person wonder — just what did he have in mind for all those rocket launchers?
