Katie Couric Schools Stephen Colbert On Gun Control

posted on May 12, 2016

On Wednesday’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Katie Couric was on as a guest to discuss her new “documentary” titled “Under The Gun.” In the first 10 seconds of the interview, Couric made her position abundantly clear.

Colbert no more uttered the words “gun control” when Couric interrupted to “correct” him: “We try to say ‘gun safety,’” she explained. “‘Gun safety’ and ‘gun violence prevention’ because ‘gun control’ I think makes people freak out.”

Couric’s right of course—Americans do tend to get concerned when gun grabbers threaten their constitutional freedoms. They can call it whatever they want—whatever the carefully crafted PC phrase-of-the-day is—but no one is fooled.

Nor is anyone fooled by Couric trying to pass off her anti-gun piece as one that finds “common ground.” And it’s surely no accident she uses loaded phrasing like “gun lobby” and “tentacles” when discussing NRA and its reach.

From Editor: This Is Not A Culture War

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
