MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Talks Gun ‘Confiscation’
Newsbusters ^ | December 16, 2012 | Dan Gainor

Posted on 12/17/2012 12:08:25 PM PST by Cheerio

Liberals always say they don’t want to take away guns. But give them an awful tragedy like the Newtown, Conn. shooting and they get bolder and more honest. MSNBC host Ed Schultz showed a rare bout of such honesty during a brief Twitter exchange Saturday. Schultz asked “Why should anyone own an assault rifle ?” and followed it up by saying “it's the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.”

“The Ed Show” host wasn’t done his attack on gun rights. “The NRA needs to state the case why assault weapons are needed by anyone,” he claimed. And after that, he told one poster that “a Glock pistol qualifies as an assault weapon.” That last bit is surely a surprise to both gun owners and Congress which didn’t include handguns in its previous assault weapons ban.

Rush quoted a story near the end of his show today stating that the Sandy Hook shooter left the Bushmaster in the trunk of his car, and that the guns he used were pistols.

It sure will be embarrassing for Ed and the rest of state-controlled media if that turns out to be true.

No, they don't. But if you really want a reason, it's in case people like you come into power.

Sometimes the Political Elite get uppity and then We The People need to be able to take them down a peg or two.

Thanks for asking.

I predict that there will be a lot more shootings if the libs try confiscation... Specifically, anyone trying to do the confiscating.

Ed's ex-wife Maureen had a restraining order against him.

Is Ed a Wife Beater?

I sure wouldn't let Wife Beaters have guns.

Somehow the left is never ever embarrassed - FACT are just not relevant. They have "their belief's" and just like religion they do not have to be proved in order for them to keep the faith. GUNS EVEIL, REPUBLICAN EVIL, NO GOD, yada yada yada.

So on the one hand we hear the Medical Examiner states that "most" of the wounds were made by a .223 and on the other we heard that the rifle was found in the trunk.
Is the ME a lying leftist or do they not know where the rifle was found?

I used to think it was only weather forecasters who could be wrong most of the time and get to keep their jobs... now I guess we add your basic "news reporter".

War on boys. War on middle class, white boys. If they won’t act like and be educated like girls, DRUG THEM.
Make them feel totally inferior to every other “demographic”, give them psychotropic drugs, and feed them full of violent first person shooter video games.

What could go wrong?

“MSNBC Airs Ed Schultz Program,
He’s A Wife-Beater And Dog Killer

I see MSNBC is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for liberal mouthpieces. They’ve gone and dug deep into the dirty, dark, dank, moldy, parasite-infected crevasse and pulled Big Fat Dumb Ed Schultz out of the gutter and put him on television. Wow.

Ed Schultz: Wife-Beater / Drunk Dog Shooter

If you watch his program - and for the life of me I can’t think of why you would - just remember the two following things about Big Fat Dumb Ed:

1) He’s a wife-beater. Beat and physically abused his first wife, Maureen, until she was black and blue and bruised and bloodied. I’ve written this before. It’s no secret. If it weren’t true, Ed could sue me for libel and defamation. So far, he hasn’t. That’s because you can’t sue someone for telling the truth.

2) During a hunting trip, a drunken Ed -while hunting, mind you - shot and killed his own dog. Again, this is true.

You don’t have to believe me on any of this. Search it out for yourself.”

Ed Schultz should not be permitted to express opinions or anything, for that matter, in a public forum.

It sort of amusing in a sad way that the same liberals that scream “It’s impossible for the government to deport 12 Million illegals?!??!” actually thinks the government has the ability to locate and confiscate five times as many “assault weapons”. (besides unlike illegals, assault weapons don’t even need food or income, so they can avoid the “public eye” and stay quietly tucked away in a small corner until needed)

It’s totally impractical and even impossible to deal with 20 million illegal alians but it’s perfectly reasonable to try to eliminate 200,000,000 LEGAL guns.

He’s not at all up to date. I heard the medical examiner after he finished all the autopsies and he said they were all killed by that rifle. Then, the killer used one of the hand guns to shoot himself in the head. Rush is wrong.

The hypocrisy of this is liberals own guns too. Do they believe they’ll be untouched by implementation of such suggestions? I think the answer is yes mostly. I believe most gun owning libs believe the govt will give them a pass. After all the Hollyweird set and pols get one, why not the true blue rank & file cheerleading lib? They’ll be disappointed! However, the broader concept is applicable. In the liberal mind the only problem w/ guns is that you can own them. They also have no problem using guns to control your life in a manner they deem fit.

Schultz is nuts. Probably three dozens in the world watch his show.

But his talking meme will be used over and over again in Leftist circle to reenforce their views, that is how ‘Everybody Agrees’ or ‘It Is A Known Fact’..... started.

I believe that is an old, inaccurate story that Rush was reading. Supposedly there were multiple rifles in the trunk, but the .223 in the school was the mass murder weapon.

They don’t get outside and run off any energy. All their play has to be organized and preplanned. When they are young,they can’t go walk around alone like we did. They are not taught to be responsible at an early age. They run around in stores and eateries like animals. When they go to college they can’t tie their own shoes.

“It makes total sense that the shooter would have carried pistols and left the rifle in the car.”

I just posted that the medical examiner said, after he did all the autopies, that they were all killed by that rifle and the killer shot himself in the head with one of the handguns.

Where this got confused, is, the sheriff later said there was “ANOTHER” rifle in the car. He took one in and left the other.

He wasn’t concerned anyone would see him, as he used that rifle to shoot out the glass in the door and walk in.

Apparently a Bushmaster carbine was used, and the gun that was removed from the trunk of the car was a shotgun.

The accuracy of the stories has lowered the bar for reporting to the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

The largely unreported story here is one about mental illness, community mental health, violent video games, and a mother who had unrealistic expectations for a mentally disabled child who drank a little bit too much.

Since both the killer and the gun owner are dead, and since as a nation we've been encouraging freedom for the mentally ill for the last 50 years and won't demand treatment, we'll focus on the Bushmaster rifle instead.

The sheriff said differently. I am going with the sheriff. What difference does it make? They were all bought legally. You cannot have gun confiscation without coming to Texas sooner or later. May I suggest you try us first? Let’s see how that works out for you, Ed

The big problem for the rank and file liberal morons if guns are banned, most liberals live in cities as does the feral ghetto thugs.

They will be defenseless and served up like a smorgasbord for Eric Holder's ‘people’.

Plop Detroit in the middle of London and see how long it takes for Brits to $hit-can their gun ban.
