MSNBC Anchor Thinks We're Lucky NY/NJ Attacker Used Bombs Instead Of Guns

posted on September 22, 2016

In the aftermath of a terror attack, a TV anchor inevitably will say something astoundingly stupid. Shortly after the bombings in New York and New Jersey that injured 29 Americans, it was MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who attempted to use a bombing to promote gun control on Twitter: “We’re also very very lucky that the attackers tried to use explosives rather than guns.”

Twitter erupted in derision:

“The Bath school victims would disagree Chris …”

“as would Veterans missing arms and legs from IEDs.” 

“Also Oklahoma City, Boston …” 

“Yes, you would think we would outlaw bombs or something. You should suggest it.” 

“Exactly. When the military wants to kill a lot of people, they avoid bombs.”

Hayes’ childish assertion was compounded by his overlooking the fact that the suspect was armed and shot two police officers in the course of his arrest. However, inconvenient facts will never gain entrance to a closed mind.
