Progress: MSNBC Host Admits Gun Ownership Isn't a "Fringe" Thing

How nice for you to finally realize that many people in this country own guns AND back gun control laws. Yes, it IS a fringe thing when white doughy wingnuts own 7.9 guns and more of more of these cranks are doing crazyassed things like shooting school children and killing bus drivers while abducting children. The nuts belong squarely in your camp, fueled by paranoia-laced rhetoric they hear on Limbaugh, Levin and various nutjob conservative talk shows around the country.

It's not "white doughy (whatever that is) wingnuts" who killed 600 in Chicago last year, and I doubt they own "7.9 guns." Most shooters don't own the firearms they use, and they're usually stolen. As for the ones doing the shootings, they belong in jail. Many belong in mental insititutions before they can commit the crimes, but the leftist kooks think that would hurt their feelings, so they're allowed to run loose, and some of them even end up in positions such as vice president.. They are not squarely in my camp, as the vast majority of the shooters are left-leaning nut jobs. I happen to be listening to Rush as I type this. You should listen to him some time -- you might learn something, you leftist kook.

Jessie, you miss one (actually more, but that would take too much time to unravel) salient point. It is the white doughy wingnuts that, for the most part, follow the gun control laws. What we have issues with are the ones (black, brown and white) that do not.

You should not own any guns if your mind is really as twisted as your post above would seem to imply. Do you REALLY think that Jarod Loughner, Adam Lanza and the guy who shot up the Theater in Aurora, CO were regular listeners to the Rush and Sean radio shows? In Sean's case it would also include his TV show. Your brain is really FUBAR if you believe that. Go turn in all of your guns, immediately, to the nearest police or sheriffs dept.

Jessie there are already enough gun control laws on the books at the federal level.

If laws were a solution then with 20,000 laws about guns & their control, you'd think there wouldn't be a problem.

For the past two months we've been hearing from progressives and certain politicians like Chuck Schumer that groups like the NRA and gun owners sit on the "fringe" of American society. Considering there are an estimated 60-90 million gun owners in America, that argument hardly holds water, but that hasn't stopped the media from reporting it. We saw MSNBC's Toure essentially say he thinks law abiding gun owners should be treated like sex offenders after The Journal News published the names, addresses and a detailed map of where gun permit holders living in Westchester County, New York. We've seen CNN...
