Chris Matthews: Support Gun Control or an American President Could Be Murdered
Newsbusters ^ | 2/27/13 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 02/27/2013 3:37:00 PM PST by Nachum

In a closing commentary on Wednesday, Hardball's Chris Matthews ranted that opposing gun control could lead to the assassination of a future American president or politician. Matthews fumed that he supports new restrictions because "the next mass shooter could well emerge out of this pack" of the "politically nutty."

He lobbied, "Check the shooters of John F. Kennedy and Jerry Ford, who got out twice. Look at the men that shot Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and George Wallace. They all had political motives and they all had guns." In the very next sentence, Matthews sneered, "And if you're not against this movement, you're with it."

The liberal MSNBC anchor closed by urging his followers to fight for gun control: "Write your congressman and say what you think and what you feel. Do it tonight before you go to bed."

He'll claim 1st Amendment protection and that he wasn't making a threat, but only postulating on a an unspecified possible right wing threat.

Chris Mathews is just projecting the lefts love of violence.

If a conservative is elected in 2016, Lee Harvey Matthews will probably pull the trigger himself.

Mr. Matthews is shouting FIRE - has he committed a crime? Apparently not...unbalanced people are the norm for Progressives. The story would be much different if Hannity, Rush, Malkin etc, had said the same thing...it it would be a crime!

He forgot to mention that presidential assassins are uniquely either left wing or totally insane, or both. Seriously, go down the list, not just of assassins but attempted assassins. Every single one is like Chris Matthews and his kind.

chris matthews...talk about the politically nutty. Where could you find a better example of the politically ‘nutty’ than on msnbc? Where could you find less logic and more insanity except maybe in congress and replete throughout this entire administration? Where could you find a more dangerous compilation of absolute whackos than on the left?
I’ll keep my imaginary guns snd they can keep their imaginary logic for why I shouldn’t, thank you.

A google search for assassinated dictators shows that strong gun control does not prevent assassination.

Ceausescu.

There are also plenty of examples of presidents (non-US) and similar heads of state being assassinated, in a country that bans private possession of firearms.

Needless to say, Matthews is a foaming-at-the-mouth idiot, and no sensible person takes his remarks seriously.

“Check the shooters of John F. Kennedy and Jerry Ford, who got out twice. Look at the men that shot Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and George Wallace. They all had political motives and they all had guns.”

Off the top of my head none of the shooters used an “assault rifle” and all would have likely made it through the new background check (no prior felony or mental incarceration)...except the Fruit of Islam brothers who nailed X with a shotgun and pistol, IIRC, and who probably had long felony rap sheets.

How very odd that chrissy failed to mention that except for the Kennedys, all the assassinated and attempted assassinations targeted republicans...including mlk. Bobby Kennedy was done in by a jihadist before most people knew what a jihadist was. Can’t bring that up. And who knows who killed jfk?

"Check the shooters of John F. Kennedy and Jerry Ford, who got out twice. Look at the men that shot Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and George Wallace. They all had political motives and they all had guns."

The guns used to shoot (or shoot at in the case of Pres. Ford) were handguns, a shotgun, a bolt action rifle and a pump action rifle. Go ahead and say it, Chrissie, you want all guns banned.

Of the assassinations he listed, how many of the weapons used would have been affected in the new ban?

I think the Left is getting upset that their obviously intentional provocations of the Right have not resulted in a very big incident. They will probably get that incident when they try to confiscate the first guns.

That’s just another “resume enhancement” for Prissy-Chrissy on Commie-Cast’s HR Books, IINM. He gets paid BIG in booze and cash, bigtime, for bigtime dumbass remarks like those. His “resume” is prodigious, by now, bedecked with little gold stars.

The left is stuck on material things. Wealth and inanimate objects take on a moral quality.

Here is a clue for the libtards; a gun won’t hurt anyone outside accident without evil intent, and a Marine with just his bare hands is a lethal weapon. But then that is why we call them libtards.

First and foremost, no matter their political persuasion, we can not, and will not cut funds for presidential protection. We have an obligation to protect our President, and his family.

I recall that Matthews was silent when the left speculated about Bush 43 being assassinated. So, his call for private prohibition of some or all firearms is not about firearms but about protecting presidents he supports.

So, Crissy sez “Support gun control or a President may be murdered.”

Izat so?

One in four, as a matter of historic fact, has been shot at, hit, or killed. And that was before “gun control”.

ALL the killers have been Democrats or children of Democrats. Matthews might have a point. Of course he's too stupid and biased to know dems are the killers because he's an effing idiot who doesn't give a damn about facts... so he was probably slandering conservatives.

Matthews is soooooooo yesterday.
