Brokaw: 'I Would Be Nervous Going Into A Bar' In Arizona...
Real Clear Politics ^ | January 14, 2011 | Tom Brokaw

"Gun control is too simple a phrase to define all the complications and nuances of it, frankly. In Arizona they have a wide open system. I would be nervous about going into a bar or restaurant in Arizona on a Saturday night where people can carry concealed without permits," Tom Brokaw said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Dear Tom,

Be polite.

Don't be spouting anti-Constitutional rhetoric and you'll be fine.

He’s spent his entire adult life as a professional propagandist and agitator and is now just realizing he might not be able to walk amongst his agitated victims.

Good for Tom’s sense of survival instinct!

Tom Brokaw Praises Sheriff Dupnik For Remarks Against Violent Rhetoric, Wishes More Would Speak Out "

By Matt Hadro | January 10, 2011 | 18:45

[Excerpt] Appearing on Monday's "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw praised Sheriff Dupnik of Pima County, Ariz. for condemning political vitriol, and wished more officials would follow suit. Dupnik, a Democrat, blamed violent political rhetoric in part for the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), and singled out conservatives Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle for instances of unacceptable hate speech.

Brokaw thought officials have been "timid" in their criticism of violent political speech, in the wake of Saturday's shooting. "The Pima County Sheriff is not," he continued. "He is speaking out, and too few others have because they're worried about retribution." [End Excerpt]

2) Bwahahahaha! My plan for Brokaw-free libation is WORKING!

Don't worry about Arizona Tommy.

I'll personally take you to a couple of bars near my neighborhood. It's a quiet little area on the Southeast side of Chicago, known to the locals as just "The East Side." You know - where "Fast Eddie" Vrodolyak hails from.

Guns are illegal in Chicago, and almost no one gets a carry permit. What could be safer?

(Just try not to make eye contact with any of the guys with crowns, teardrops or the number "13" tattooed on their faces and every thing will be hunky-dorry.)

Why would Tommy be nervous? HAs he been a bad boy unpatriotic little dweeb? Is he worried someone is going to call him on his previous conduct?

Buahahahahahaha!

Stay home Tommy, and let the men of America rise to run our country.

Isn’t Timmy, err, I mean Tommy Brokaw from South Dakota? I recall that he did time in Los Angeles. too reporting the news with his lisp or speech impediment.

Now he’s skeered to go to Arizona?

B.S. He’s just mouthing elite, snobbery, balderdash.

The dream of the Leftist is to disarm the Citizenry that disagrees with them.

The rub is, how do they actually do it? They pass Laws, so they have to depend on voluntary compliance. At some point, some people won't volunteer their right of self defense, at least not in the United States of America that I grew up in.

What then are the Leftists Elites to do? Remember, these are the people that say Deporting Illegal Aliens would be impossible. Do they think there are a lesser amount of gun owners than there are Illegal Aliens in this Country?

I just looked up the murder stats for Tucson and Washington DC (the poster child for gun control).

Over the last 4 years Tucson had 9.4 murders/100,000 residents.
Over the same period Washington had 28.8 murders per 100,000 residents.

Obviously the comparison isn’t perfect but I’m sure Brokaw has gone out on the town more than a few times in DC. How afraid was he when he did so?.

Does anybody else besides me think that Brokaw talks exactly like Hugh Hefner?

I live in S. CA. and I remember watching Brokaw on the local NBC affiliate when I was a youngster. When he got promoted to the NBC Anchor chair, I couldn't believe it. The guy had a lisp worse than Yosemite Sam for goodness sakes. Sufferin Succotash!

At “News Busters”

[snip]

“TOM BROKAW: Here is why I think there are a lot of Glocks being sold: because gun owners are worried that they’re going to be outlawed. That’s what happened when President Obama first took office is that people were buying ammunition and storing it in underground bunkers because they thought he was going to outlaw guns and ammunition. Gun control is too simple a phrase to define all the complications and nuances of it, frankly. In Arizona they have a wide open system. I would be nervous about going into a bar or restaurant in Arizona on a Saturday night where people can carry concealed without permits.”

To be honest over the murder rate in Washington DC...if you cut DC into West DC and East DC...West DC goes down to like 7 murders per 100k residents, and East DC goes up to 50 murders per 100k residents. Not that it really matters because theres not really any restaurant of substance that I could see Tommy hanging out at in eastern DC.
