MSNBC: New Duck Dynasty Firearms Could Be Used In Mass Shootings
Truth Revolt ^ | 1/4/2014 | Trey Sanchez

Posted on 01/04/2014 7:02:32 PM PST by markomalley

On Friday, MSNBC host Thomas Roberts talked with Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence about the joint release of a new line of Duck Commander shotguns and rifles from gunmaker Mossberg and the Robertson family of "Duck Dynasty" fame. Amazingly, the conversation hints that because of the rifles' high-capacity magazines, they could be used for more than just ducks -- perhaps even shooting people.

During the conversation, Everett explains that the gun industry's consumer base is predominantly "conservative, middle-aged, white males," which host Roberts says is the exact audience that watches Duck Dynasty. Then, they jump to discussing the rise in mass shootings - "mass" meaning when two or more are killed. Cited is the fact that handguns account for 59% of these "mass" shootings, and that 94% of the shooters are male. They did not elaborate whether these males are white and conservative, but the implication is there.

However, even though handguns are the weapon of choice for killing two or more people, Everett and Roberts are more concerned with the high-capacity magazines that will be featured on the Duck Commander rifles. They then make the astonishing leap that perhaps these guns could be used in mass shootings.

Everett: In terms of the dynamics of mass shootings, you mentioned semi-automatic firearms being used. The other very common element here obviously is high-capacity ammunition magazines, and of course that ties into the Duck Dynasty story, where they've now decided in addition to traditional hunting firearms to also try to market some semi-automatic firearms that accept 25 round magazines, which is obviously not necessary for 'plinking' around your house.

Roberts: No, or for taking down a duck. But that's a different story.

Liberals defying logic - it is what they do best.

Obviously, this person does not do any plinking! When plinking, the bigger the magazine the better.

I can imagine one would lose about 10 points of IQ for every minute tuned into PMSNBC. How can anyone be dumb enough to sponser them and be associated to their dribble?

Far more likely a Fast n Furious gun will be used in homicides. MSNBC will be all over that one, I’m certain.

According to that logic, new model 2014 cars could be used to drive people to mass shootings.

The leftist billionaire’s who own MSNBC are laughing at everyone who gets all worked up over what their wackos say.

I am telling you...MSNBC exists for one reason: to troll conservatives.

of course conservative white males are the buyer demo.

liberal white women hqve their rape whistles.

liberal white men have their starbucks cups and ‘gimme wallets’.

And he bases this assertion on his vast "plinking" experience, I assume?

They are about equally likely to be used to stop a mass shooting as they are to be employed in one.

MSNBC encourages leftist nuts to use these guns if you plan on shooting someplace up.

This is the quote I thought of on the subject:

"Mr. Madison, what you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Reminds me of the ABC Radio News reporter who, when announcing that Mikhail Kalashnikov, the inventor of the AK 47 had died, said "Four big names in gun making, Smith, Wesson and Colt and now..."

NONE of these weapons will be used in a mass shooting. Since the democrats will boycott these guns, they will all be bought by Republicans/Libertarians/Right leaning people. None of these have ever been involved in a mass shooting.

Maybe their products are inferior or over-priced, and they want to reach out to stupid, gullible people.

Wasn’t it Rimshot Joe Biden who told everyone to buy a shotgun? What the hell is this idiot talking about? These days, “what difference does it make” if you get killed by a DD shotgun or die from cancer because ObamaCare caused your health insurance plan to be cancelled and you can’t afford the premiums of a Pajama Boy “bronze plan”?

Because everyone knows how much us plinkers enjoy having to reload a magazine every 30 seconds or so.

I'm tired of trying to educate these morons about our constitution or about firearms. So that said I only have one more statement for them, SCREW OFF!!!!!

I could care less what you think about guns or what I need or want them for. It is my constitutional right to have them and your thoughts, beliefs or information gained via crystal ball means nothing to me. I like guns, I own guns, and you can SCREW OFF!!!!!

Is that clear enough?

It will take a few hundred years for duck dynasty to catch up with the body count amassed by collectivism.

And no mention of the number 1 killer: bathtubs.

Actually, if DD's viewers are overwhelmingly conservative white males, then the chances the guns will be utilized in mass shootings is EXCEEDINGLY SMALL.

Because, to the best of my knowledge, most, if not ALL of the small numbers of mass shootings committed are done so by those espousing progressive ideologies and registered democrat...
