CNN Commentator Can’t Argue With “Good Guys With Guns” Logic

posted on June 20, 2017

A CNN commentator seems to be frustrated that the latest high-profile shooting—in which a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on GOP congressmen at a baseball practice—doesn’t fit the typical anti-gun narrative.

As pointed out in a feature at newsbusters.com, CNN Commentator Marc Lamont Hill is upset that the shooting wasn’t one to allow anti-gunners to gain support for their gun-ban schemes.

“But if you are on the right this week, this was your perfect case study,” Hill said. “The whole argument of: Good guy with a gun beats a bad guy with a gun. I disagree with that argument, but this was a case study that’s almost hard for the left to push back. And we wanted to, but it was hard to.”

In fact, good guys with guns save themselves and others from bad guys with guns several times each day. But reporters like Hill would rather ignore that fact while pushing for more restrictive regulations for law-abiding gun owners.
