MSNBC Reporter Unwittingly Discovers The Importance Of The Right To Keep And Bear Arms

posted on June 26, 2019

Sometimes even the worst of the media inadvertently stumbles upon the truth. On April 30, MSNBC reported that the socialist government of Venezuela was running over its citizens with armored vehicles.

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders, seeking to explain how the government could oppress the population to this extent, invoked the disparity of power between the government and the people.

He noted: “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that is open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolas Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

These admissions, however unwitting, were a refreshing contrast from the usual MSNBC rhetoric that tends to favor the most far-reaching forms of gun control.

But while the political elite hide behind the guise of “common-sense gun laws,” in reality they believe that they should be the only ones protected by guns. The rest of the population, in their view, is not to be trusted.

After years of pushing anti-gun rhetoric, MSNBC accidentally made one of the most powerful cases for the Second Amendment—showing that without it law-abiding citizens will not have the means to protect themselves from criminals or from the most blatant forms of government oppression.

The men and women of the NRA have understood this since 1871.

It’s taken MSNBC a while to catch up to the rest of us.

For the people of Venezuela, unfortunately, the lesson arrived too late.
