Skip to comments.‘What About Guns Right Now?’ CNN's Blitzer Pushes Gun Control After CA Bar Shooting
Posted on 11/09/2018 10:21:18 AM PST by rktman
Showing that hes anything but a fair news anchor, CNNs The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer was yet another journalist who tried to make the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting about gun control despite the state having perhaps the countrys strictest gun laws and state mental health experts had cleared the disturbed individual (thus still allowing him to purchase firearms).
Blitzer led into gun control by asking Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) about what else could police have done if they had visited him previously and they had some professionals check him out and they concluded he was no threat to himself or to anyone else.
It was following this question that Blitzer burst out like he had been given marching orders by the Brady Campaign or Everytown, blurting out his personal frustration and pleading with Speier:
What about guns right now? Do Democrats youre a Democrat. Youre going to have a majority in the House of Representatives. Do you guys, the Democrats, not just you but your colleagues, have the stomach right now to take up the whole issue of guns, given not just what's happened not just in the last few weeks but over the years?
Speier cited the successful efforts to strengthen laws in Florida following the Parkland shooting and then went to vague generalities that Congress must clos[e] loopholes that we must do in terms of background checks and consider ways to restrict those with a mental health history from owning guns.

CNN, libs, and Blitzer, calling for gun control after a shooting, is like saying that rain is wet.
Caution, inane blather present in video at link:
Nazis like Wolf have always had a problem with an armed populace.
Perhaps that should be posted in BREAKING NEWS. LOL!
Also, I knew 3 other suicides. One jumper, one drug OD and one closed garage running car type. Hmmm. Maybe it’s me.
I’m a Forensic Files junkie and a good proportion of the murders that they cover,and possibly the majority,are NOT by gunfire.
That’s exactly right. My liberal friends and family members get angry with me all the time about guns. Even if we all agreed to “gun control” whatever that means, what to do?
You have to change the constitution. Until a politician on EITHER side says that, it’s all just BS rhetoric. The left doesn’t really want it. Without guns, it’s one less issue they can campaign on. They can’t criticize Reps for having an A+ NRA rating and they can’t hold out their own F rating to their supporters.
Politicians are scum. None of them care about us.
How about nutjob control instead? That guy should have been in a hospital with a lock on the door.
Glad I had my speakers off.
If gun control worked, there would not have been a shooting.
CA already has all the gun control that they say we need everywhere else.
What they won’t say is they think we need gun confiscation.
Doesn’t Wolfie know we’re fighting to save our republic? In the wake of rampant election fraud, now is not the time to try to take our guns.
Don’t forget the people who were startled/triggered by a heater making noise this morning.
CNN is not an advocate of human rights.
Saddam Hussein used rape rooms to torture the populace.
Speaking of gun control, its been noted that Thousand Oaks bar where shooting took place is gun-free zone.
Massacre at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California was in another Gun-free zone: 12 murdered, 18 injured
FN mentioned bar security was unarmed.
I assume since CNN is anti Gun they will be telling their armed security to carry around bananas instead, is that right Wolfie
Don’t worry, Guv Newsom will bring us much, much more gun control in CA. Count on it.
Now over 20,000 state and federal gun laws what more do they want short of outright confiscation? Well those that are known.
Gun laws are what made us vulnerable to these events.
Is there anyone that cannot see that fact clearly?
