Brokaw: I'd Be Nervous Going Into Bar or Restaurant in Arizona on Saturday Night Because of Guns
Tom Brokaw on Thursday said that as a result of Arizona's loose gun laws, he'd be nervous going into a bar or restaurant in that state on a Saturday night.
Such was uttered during a discussion about gun control on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
TOM BROKAW: Here is why I think there are a lot of Glocks being sold: because gun owners are worried that they're going to be outlawed. That's what happened when President Obama first took office is that people were buying ammunition and storing it in underground bunkers because they thought he was going to outlaw guns and ammunition. Gun control is too simple a phrase to define all the complications and nuances of it, frankly. In Arizona they have a wide open system. I would be nervous about going into a bar or restaurant in Arizona on a Saturday night where people can carry concealed without permits.
Makes you wonder how long this full-court press for stronger gun laws will be mounted by the media.
