Skip to comments.Shep Smith: ‘Nauseating’ How Both Sides of Gun Issue Come Out After Shooting
Posted on 04/06/2014 6:43:36 AM PDT by rktman
Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith spoke with Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace on Friday about the ongoing investigation into the shooting at Ft. Hood when he expressed his revulsion over the debate over access to guns that follows a mass shooting. He said it was nauseating how both sides of the gun issue come out screaming largely before the victims have even been buried.
If somebody wanted to bring a gun up here, you could bring a gun up here, Smith observed. You cant stop every criminal in advance.

Shep Smith: Nauseating
He certainly is.
Its amazing how these “celebrities” must tow a politically correct line to maintain their big bucks marketability. Politically correct self censorship stifles creativity and problem solving. If on duty serving military officers in uniform were required to wear their side arms,would this carnage be occurring?
Even a blind squirrel ...
I guess with this logic, he’s also nauseating since reporters come out of the woodwork after every shooting and before the victims are even buried.
...uses a Tapping Stick?
That's because EMOTIONS rule the debate on the left. CLEAR rational thought guides the right.
LEFT thought - AHHHH guns kill people - BAN ALL GUNS!!!
RIGHT thought - Who stopped the suicide shooter? (Media response a FEMALE, HERO ...) The "hero" had a "gun." Gunman knows the base is unarmed, the first encounter with someone who was armed? kills himself. Wow. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this all out. Gun Free zones are killing zones. An army base should be the last place on earth where soldiers are unarmed. Train them in proficiency of weapons and keep the bases out of the nightly news for mass shootings.
Shep, the flaming queer, is ALWAYS the first to make comment on guns. Always.
Compromise is beneficial if it leads to a solution, but on gun control it would only be an incremental step toward the left’s ultimate goal of total confiscation. I admit to harboring extreme views on gun control because compromise would accomplish nothing. It is not a solution until the other side agrees to accept it with some sense of finality and not an incremental victory. To preserve our 2nd Amendment rights, the left gives us no alternative to an extremist position.
He’s gotta have some incriminating videos or something in order to keep his job. We’d be better off if he was on cnn. Then nobody would see him. Unless of course you’re in an airport.
Nauseating the way POTUS babbles on after each incident then goes back into hiding until the next one. Didn’t he make promises the last time Ft Hood got shot up? What changed?
Maybe I’m just showing my bias about ol’ Shep, but I don’t think he’d be so nauseated if just gun grabbers made their arguments after these shootings. I’m sure he doesn’t think Bloomberg and the Moms are ghouls.
The one thing that is always said whenever the newest "disaster" occurs...
"We just don't have any information and we don't want to speculate...but..."
And then off they go!
Sheppard Smith IS part of the bigger problem...
His only reason to be employed is that he is a homosexual, and they gave him a fancy new set with all the staff and gadgetry for FoxNews to justify his continued existence in that organization...
FoxNews is no different than any other media outlet, they fear the gays...
So appeasement is the preferred method of sustainability and ratings in our TV/Cable media...
As Neville Chamberlain said, “We will have gays in our time!”
Or something like that...;-)
Keeping and Bearing arms is a right in America.
Shep, it you and your leftist buddies respected that, there would be no need to hear either side. You wouldn’t have to be nauseated.
One side is on the side of the Constitution, the other side is not and wish to take away a right guaranteed by the Constitution to American citizens.
Shep Smith should be working for E! not Fox News.
Gun-grabbers like Piss Morgan immediately went to twitter and called for a gun-free America, before even thinking about the soldiers and their families.
he is in the news business. Speech is used in the news business. Seems kind of odd for a supposed newsman to be against speech. Why not just have a dictatorship and never discuss anything in public?
I stopped watching Fox a while ago. They are following the statist-corporatist meme for the most part now. Content and depth is appallingly slim on cable.
... finds a nut once in a while.
If only I hadn't been born normal...
Shep certainly should know Nauseating after his performance on hurricane Katrina. Lockers full of bodies, roving gangs killing people and on and on. He should have been banned after that.
I am sure the punk wouldn’t be “nauseated” if only the left came out after a shooting.
2nd Amendment folks do it to fight back against Shep’s friends.
Why in the world does this over wrought homosexual still have a job on Fox after telling the world that people were eating each other in the Super Dome after Katrina? Roger Ailes must have some very dark secrets.
Apparently everybody has come out but Shep.
LOL! Like I said, shep must have some videos that ol Roger doesn’t want shown.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Right - one side comes out on offense, the other reacts on defense.
Now I wonder which is which...
“Alone, unarmed and scared” was our motto when I was flying in tankers, but now I feel like I am staked out like a lamb for slaughter working as a simple servant on an Air Force Base.
I have a CCW in the state I am a resident, but can only have my sidearm of choice (Springfield Arms 45) unloaded and stored in my locked glove compartment with the ammo (39 rounds) stored in a separate part of my vehicle. If the Squadron I work in has an active shooter I will be one of the first gunned down with two other civilians. Nothing like being a sitting duck.
I would love nothing more than to be allowed to conceal or open carry my personal side arm along with the other members of my unit. All the civilians have CCW for our state and are former military. I served 25 years mostly carrying a .38 or M-9 more than the M-16 and would like nothing more than a fighting chance should we get an active shooter on our base. But, thanks to BJ Clinton, Lord Obama, and our feces for brain Secretary of Defense Chucky Hagel I will continue to be a sitting duck. How I despise liberals!
It’s true - compromise means moving ever leftward.
Just to make you feel better, they despise you too. LOL!
There is no gun issue.
Yup. I had to buy my own. Nobody issued me one. Uh, lately.
Suppose that every time there was a financial crisis or scandal, an anti-Semitic faction came out with: “Blame the Jews!”
If that brought out others defending the Jews and attacking the anti-Semites, so be it.
(And only a covert anti-Semite seeking to elevate the attackers to the level of the defenders would wring his hands with a “brings out both sides” concern.)
A Freudian slip on his part methinks. :~)
Says the man from Holly Springs, Mississippi. A town that people have to have armed guards to remove coins from vending machines.
What this tells me, is that it finally dawned on Shep what the anti-gun contingent has been up to, and how they game these issues.
Damn scared to actually address just that lobby, Shep has to toss in “Both sides” to cover the issue.
Shep is a clueless twerp!
It’s telling that Sheppie-boy didn’t get nauseated until the pro-Second Amendment folks started replying to the Bloomberg crowd. His nausea was kept well hidden in the aftermath of Littletown, when the NRA said they’d refuse comment for a period of time after the shootings out of respect for the victims. Meanwhile, the Brady and Bloomberg people were all over the airwaves demanding political action before the bodies were room temperature.
Sheppie was fine with that, I assume.
He and others on Fox haven’t a clue when it comes to Conservatism. They bill themselves as the network that shows both sides, but the Conservative side gets very short shrift IMO.
I’m sure Sheppie was find with it. He wouldn’t know why not to be fine with it.
I just threw up in my mouth a little....thanks
Smith observed. You cant stop every criminal in advance.
That is correct. That is why every American has the right to protect themselves and nothing does that better then a gun.
And it’s not a compromise unless both sides GET something. And your enemies settling for stealing less from you isn’t “getting something”. They’d have to give up something they already have to make it a compromise.
