Skip to comments.NBC Uses Doctor’s Group, Grieving Mother to Tout ‘Thundering Call to Action’ for Gun Bans

While ABCs World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News largely stuck Friday to the investigation into the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting and the grieving families, NBC Nightly News went political.
Their strategy? Well, NBC took it upon itself to push gun bans and gun control with support from both a doctors group that the National Rifle Association (NRA) had tweeted about (before the shooting) and comments from a grieving mother calling for no more guns.
Also, a war of words erupts, the NRA versus doctors fed up and speaking up after the latest mass shooting in America. And a mom whose son survived the Vegas massacre only to die in that bar issues a thundering call to action, anchor Lester Holt proclaimed in one of the newscasts teases.
Later at the eight-minute mark and after a news brief on the victims, Holt transitioned to bashing the NRA with a lead-in to correspondent Catie Becks report: The NRA has not commented on the massacre but something the gun lobby group tweeted just hours before it happened has sparked a fierce feud with many of the nations doctors.
Beck first took up the cause of Susan Orfanos, whos son Telemachus was killed at the bar after he survived last years Las Vegas shooting.
She spoke to reporters earlier in the day and demanded gun control and ruled that she doesnt want anyone praying for her. Instead, she wants guns wiped off the map.
With that opening, she went after the NRA for a tweet sent before the shooting that was critical of the American College of Physicians, which wants to be able to tell patients about gun safety. Any notion that it wouldnt involve direct lobbying for gun control is a farce.

When Mexican food, I also often get “a thundering call to action”.
The number of people killed in these incidents annually isn’t even a blip compared to the number of Americans murdered in the womb each year.
You mean those bothersome cell clusters?
No more Progressives.
No more Socialism.
No more Abortions.
Ban the guns used to protect actors, Dem. politicians, and other radicals. We will keep ours.
NON print with video of lester dolt and docs:
Thunder they ask for?
The lightning they should fear.
Don’t you dare show a photo of those cell clusters.
Misplaced anger. How about why there were six UNARMED policers in the venue and 200+ UNARMED citizens? That is frightening. Gun-free shooting zone in a state that basically took guns away from citizens, preventing them from defending themselves. Would Sargent Ron Helus still be alive if the people present were armed?
Or, as fauxOhauntus’ ancestors might say “thunder stick”.
***Instead, she wants guns wiped off the map.***
The gunpowder genie escaped the bottle 700 years ago, He will NOT go back in.
I thought I read that the cops knew they were going drinking so disarmed since we all know that booze and guns DO NOT mix well. So, uber, lyft since it appear there was no designated driver? I don’t know other than the whole thing is awful. Especially since the “authorities” had been in contact with the perp and decided he was okay. As earlier, had he burned the place down killing all inside, would there be an outcry to stop all production of combustibles? Evil people will devise a way to kill others regardless of any law written.
DOH! So simple.
Wonder how many members of that group commiserate with the families of DUI victims?
Or are gun deaths more “special” than any other type?
This is nothing like what gun owners went through back in 1963-1990.
We’ve heard every lie, fabrication, enuendo and more promises than you can shake a stick at. Our rights are still not up for grabs or sale.
Yup. We got back from overseas not long after rfk had been killed. Some of us had purchased pistols while in Italy that had been kept in the armory. We were denied them when getting transferred to new duty stations until the assclowns in d.c. enacted new legislation. Eventually got them returned to us. What BS that was. My first taste of infringement.
Come and take them! Bring many body bags along for yourselves, and be careful not to slip on all of the hot brass laying around.
