It’s been a year since the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. So, that means it’s time for the media to trot out crisis actor Brat Hogg once again to lecture all of us about how personal firearms use is anti-American. It’s not who we are!
Brat Hogg is a year older now, he’s had his eyebrows meticulously groomed, his talking points have been honed and rehearsed to perfection… and he’s ready to “have a conversation” in which he’s the only one who gets to talk. Welcome back, Brat Hogg! We… actually, none of us missed you at all.
Andrea Mitchell of NBC News was one of the first ones to have a crew slap some makeup on Brat Hogg this year to talk about why guns are so icky. Mitchell is the wife of former longtime Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan. So, shut up about the existence of some Deep State, all of you conspiracy kooks!
Mitchell is super-excited because Democrats in the House and Senate will be reintroducing the “Keep Americans Safe Act” this year. It doesn’t have a bill number yet, but it was S. 1945 and HR 4052 in the previous Congress, so you can read those to get the idea. Basically, the bill bans the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer or possession of 10-round or larger magazines. In Democrat fantasyland, this constitutes “sensible gun control” to “keep people safe.”
It’s fascinating to see how the mainstream media is still treating Brat Hogg like a frightened toddler. Andrea Mitchell sounds like a concerned grandma trying to convince a little kid that, no, there really isn’t a monster in the closet and it’s okay to come out from under the covers.
Brat Hogg is an adult now. He’s been accepted into Harvard and he is paid by George Soros to try to undermine the Second Amendment. So, pardon us if we don’t feel like handling Mini Hitler with kid gloves.
Andrea Mitchell wants you to know that Brat Hogg is oh, so very delicate, however, so he doesn’t have to hear any tough questions from her. In her first question for the little tyrant, she asks “what he’s learned” in the past year since the shooting and how Americans have responded to his “cries for help.” That question was so journalistically pathetic, we’re surprised that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t run into the studio to see if a cow had just farted.
Brat Hogg puts on his serious face and informs America that he’s learned that it doesn’t solve anything in the gun-grabbing debate if we attack each other. He then proceeds to attack all gun owners and pretty much labels all AR-15 owners as serial killers. “We shouldn’t be attacking each other, you bigoted redneck freaks! Shut up and let me finish!”
Mitchell and Brat Hogg talk briefly about the agenda that we’re seeing play out across the country right now, which is that Democrats are pushing radical gun-banning measures at the state level. They realize that their pipe dreams don’t stand a chance of passing at the federal level or being signed into law by President Trump. This is the reason why we see so many Democrat-run states pushing so-called “red flag” gun laws, where your neighbor can turn you in as a dangerous nutcase and then the SWAT team shows up at your house at 4 a.m.
The most hilarious offering from Brat Hogg is when he shows off his celebrated knowledge of the AR-15, “Weapons like the AR-15 have an effective range of over 1,500 meters. If you’re using a weapon with an effective range of over 1,500 meters, you are not defending yourself. You are hunting a human being! And I don’t think any civilian needs to have their hands on a military weapon like that.”
He then puts on his mad face, so you’ll know he’s really, really serious. Andrea Mitchell nods along and doesn’t challenge his assertions in any way. There are so many problems with logic and physics in that statement that it hardly bears discussing. But if he would have simply Googled range of an AR 15 he could have found out that statement isn’t true. The very first article would have told him his information was wrong.
We do have one question for Bratt Hogg, however. Where exactly can someone purchase one of those AR-15s that has an “effective range of over 1,500 meters?” Asking for a friend.
