NBC invited Tim Brokaw to weigh in on the terrible Las Vegas tragedy during NBC’s special coverage of the mass shooting.
Unfortunately, Brokaw took this opportunity to blast gun rights and encourage Democrats to “organize” against them.
On Today, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch stated that “NRA members didn’t do this, Stephen paddock did.”
“Already, gun enthusiasts are locked and loaded, ready for the coming debate after Las Vegas,” answered Brokaw.
He continued, “this is an issue that requires the best efforts of all of us, wherever we stand on this issue of who should own guns and what kind of guns that they own. This has to go to the top of the agenda in American life it seems to me.”
Matt Lauer pushed back, saying, “Yeah, but isn’t that the problem when you say ‘no matter where we stand’? There’s a huge divide in between the different thought processes on this.”
Brokaw continued his tirade on Megyn Kelly Today, where he addressed the show’s liberal audience directly, saying, “Well, I would say to this audience, and any audience before which I appear these days, we are where we are because of the power of people who wanted these kinds of guns. And the NRA managed to organize them and get them as a political force in America. So the question is, if you’re not happy with what has happened, your individual obligation as citizen is to organize on the other side. And that’s possible as well.”
He continued, “The NRA has a lot of money, obviously. And if you’re running against the NRA, in a lot of the western congressional districts for example, you’re portrayed as a traitor to America. You know, you’re not in favor of having people who have weapons, and that’s after all, how the country started. We’re a long way away from that Second Amendment in which we said that a militia is important to our country….I think that we have to step up, all of us, and speak up.”
Do you think it’s irresponsible for Brokaw to rile anti-gun liberals up like this?
