MSNBC Host Calls NRA Members "Reality Challenged"

MSNBC is on a roll lately. It seems like every host over on that propaganda network has NRA derangement syndrome, which often leads to making arguments on air that make no sense and are totally irrelevant to points made by NRA leaders. This time, it's MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell who dedicated his "rewrite" segment last night to NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.

At the NRA annual meetings in Houston last weekend, LaPierre asked the question, "How many Bostonions wished they had a gun two weeks ago."

La Pierre was referring to after the Boston Marathon bombing when alleged terrorists Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were freely running around in a Boston neighborhood after killing four Americans and severely injuring hundreds more. There was a high chance the Tsarnaev's would enter a home to take hostages while running from police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was eventually found in a boat parked in a backyard. His brother Tamerlan was killed.

Lawrence O'Donnell, missed this point entirely and apparently thought LaPierre was referring to the moment when the bombs went off at the finish line. O'Donnell also called NRA members a "reality challenged audience."

As a reminder, 69 percent of people said they would have wanted a gun should a terrorist ever be on the loose in their neighborhood.

Sixty-nine percent say if they were in a situation similar to Bostonians, they would want a gun in their house.  

That includes a large 88-percent majority of those in gun-owner households, as well as 50 percent of those in non-gun homes.

It turns out the only person who is "reality challenged" is Lawrence O'Donnell as he lives his life in a comfortable, protected bubble surrounded by armed guards.
