NBC’s Chuck Todd mocks ‘thoughts and prayers’ after Uvalde school shooting, insists 2A right ‘doesn’t exist’

(Video: NBC News)

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 host expressed. “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 concluded, “This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.”

Though spoken with a denigrating tone, he inadvertently hit the mark when he pointed out what the right has been saying all along. There is a reason that the Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.”

As San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone demonstrated by denying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) the sacrament of Holy Communion, the Democratic Party continues to shift toward a Godless society. In so doing, they are tearing down the failsafes that were meant to ensure that the rights endowed by that Creator are tempered with the discipline necessary to wield them.

“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.”

Again, the progressive pundit is correct, but not for the reasons he believes. The morals of America are eroding and that is why our politics are incapable of meeting the challenges the nation faces. As Todd put it, “No member of Congress has been voted out of office for being too pro-gun. Not one!”

Why would they? To remove a member of Congress for supporting the Constitution would be inane. But that is the point he is actually trying to make.

As filmmaker Michael Moore pushed for hours after the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, the goal is to disregard the Constitution. Where they’re concerned, authority comes not from the Divine, but from themselves, and they have grown weary of the constraints set forth to protect the rights of every American.

When Todd said, “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,” he may as well have said until Americans hand over their rights to the Democrats, expect to see more atrocities.

  1. “This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.” It does exist and it is called the 2nd Amendment to our constitution. When ever I hear Todd speak or read something he has opined on, all I hear is the echo of the words uttered by our great demented leader, “Stupid S-O-B”.

  2. Among the many great things President Trump accomplished, the exposure of the media was one of them. He taught us just how disingenuous the MSM can be. They either lie about conservatives, or just ignore the stories detrimental to democrats. They have become nothing more than mouthpieces for that party, either misinforming or lying to the populace, and TODD is among the worst. I think I’ve read that he even rents a house to a democrat senator.

  3. So now this sixteenth-wit purports to be a constitutional scholar? Guess the Founders were mistaken, by his dim lights.

  4. The Bald Headed Bolshevik Chuckie Todd is wrong 99.99999% of the time, and is not a constitutional law scholar- so he is wrong once again about the 2nd amendment right to own weapons. Does this fool think if it were illegal, the government would not have already taken them away, or tried to?? Hard to undo 248 years of precedent Chuckie!!!

  5. Chuck Todd doesn’t have the right live and exist, in this country. He needs to realize he doesn’t control us nor govern us. If he did, he would quickly regret it.

  6. Yet no one on the left wants to talk about the mass shootings that happen almost daily in cities with the toughest gun control laws. Innocent children being gunned down daily in Chicago by gang violence. Innocent people using mass transit being shot during their daily commute in NYC. Let’s only make the emotional response appropriate when it happens in a school.

    I want to see these politicians doing their sad tragedy photo-ops in Chicago after every weekends shooting gallery.

    Human beings can be sick, twisted, mentally ill or evil and commit crimes that we cannot comprehend. Unfortunately that will never change. Throughout the history of mankind there have always been these disturbed individuals and there always will be.

    You cannot legislate violence and evil out of these people, because a depraved mind doesn’t care about whether their sick plans are legal or not. They just want to destroy the targets they have chosen.

  7. “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”, sounds pretty ambiguous to me . . .
    #FJB, #ChuckYouTodd

  8. F Chuck Todd, I can point to the 2A where can you point for abortion right in the Constitution?

  9. I’m good with making 2A an election issue. Our civil rights have never been in more danger.

  10. No surprise that the demented Todd speaks out against the 2nd Amendment, as, its very clear that getting rid of our Constitution is essential to the traitorous dem/lefts plan to destroy America.

  11. I think the First Amendment is doing more damage to the country than the Second Amendment. 
    Maybe the Left should have no right to speak?

  12. Todd might try doing actual research before making false statements. he need only look at the cities and states that have draconian gun laws. They also have the most gun violence and mayhem. Then he can look at the states and cities with open carry laws. There’s hardly any crime. He might also research the politics of those who commit mass murder. They are all on the political left. The left foments such such hatred and division that their sycophants are driven to act out. The mentally unstable, like most mass murderers, are easily influenced which is why so many believe that the Democrats suggest the violence to them at times when it is politically expedient, like before an election.
    I really wish the political left would educate themselves about guns. Their ignorance is embarrassing yet they pretend to label all scary-looking guns as “assault weapons”. The only assault weapons are high caliber automatic weapons used in the military.

    1. They don’t need “no steenking research”. They have an agenda for disarming and imposing socialist slavery on the world. It’s working.
