Oh no no no no no! an inane statement

Outrage Of The Week! An Inane Statement
Friday, December 14, 2007
This week’s outrage comes courtesy of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show co-host Mika Brzezinski, who apparently has a very hard time laying aside her anti-gun sentiments, even when confronted with the truth.
We all know that firearms are used as many as two and a half million times a year for self-defense. And, as we recently saw graphically demonstrated in the senseless shootings at the New Life Church in Colorado, a law-abiding, armed citizen can make a difference.
In the tragic New Life Church incident, Jeanne Assam, who, according to media reports, had a permit to carry a concealed firearm and was volunteering as a “security person” at her church, shot a heavily armed, homicidal madman as he began attacking innocent parishioners. New Life’s Senior Pastor Brady Boyd hailed Jeanne as “a real hero,” because the gunman she shot “had enough ammunition on him to cause a lot of damage.” There is no question that this brave citizen’s decisive action with her personal firearm saved many lives.
But, facts be damned. Brzezinski, who wasn’t in the church, but who appears daily as a co-host on the MSNBC morning program doesn’t agree.
When discussing the murderous rampage, Brzezinski responded to host Joe Scarborough’s assertion that “One person with a gun can make a big difference,” by blurting, “Oh gosh, no! No, no, no. No, no, no, no, no.” Scarborough then reiterated his assertion, “One person with a gun in the right place can make a big difference.” At this point, Brzezinski had clearly had enough of the truth and, putting an exclamation point on her unabashed anti-gun sentiments, said, “You know, that is the most inane statement I have ever heard.”
Ms. Brzezinski obviously can’t be bothered with undeniable evidence, nor restrained by a code of unbiased reporting. She can’t look at a crystal-clear example of evil being countered by an armed, law-abiding citizen and have the integrity and intellectual honesty to draw the correct conclusion. That’s outrageous.

I just threw up a bit in my mouth. Can't bear to watch the clip. What a moron.

If that is what the clip shows - I ain't goin there - I value my health too much.
This tho is what we are up against so often .... and sad to say, even if this Brzezinski had been there under a hail of gunfire from the perp' - I guess the same would have been said. Yep - better to die than let a gun possibly save lives.
Just look thru those tunnel-vision glasses - works so much better huh

I made sure to send them a comment through their website. It is amazing that someone can be so detached from reality even with presented with cold hard facts. 1 person with 1 gun did make the difference in this situation but im sure Mike whatever her name is would have rather seen everyone in the church murdered because it would make better news.

I've heard it said that MSNBC now only has enough viewers to fit on a bus. I can see why. Having reporters like her have made them irrelevant in the world of news.
