Media Call to ‘Defund’ NRA, Repeal 2nd Amendment After Tragic Shooting

October 1st, 2015 4:49 PM

Early Thursday, a gunman opened fire on campus at an Oregon community college, killing 13 people and injuring at least 20. Every time a mass shooting happens, society is understandably shocked, saddened and outraged at the lives lost due to unneeded violence. But the liberal media took this a step further, from using the tragic situation to blame the NRA and the Constitution to trying to take away a right that many Americans hold so dear.

Take a look below at some of the actual demands made by the liberal media immediately after the shooting on Twitter:

NBC News’ reporter Luke Russert:

Writer for the Guardian, Reverend Broderick Greer delved into a full-on Twitter rant, calling for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment and claiming that the “white men” responsible for killing black people were also the ones responsible for these mass shootings. 

Oh, he added, we must also “defund” the non-profit NRA.

Jamil Smith at The New Republic called for “melt[ing] all the guns”

Predictably, hate for the NRA abounds in liberal-land. A former writer for NBC’s 30 Rock tweeted:

Actress Rose McGowan added:

Actor Lucas Neff Tweeted:

Actor Wil Wheaton tweeted out an Onion article expressing the same sentiment as Luke Russert’s tweet above: To him, America is the only nation with a violence problem:

Writer for The Late Show With David Letterman and Family Guy also let his anti-American attitude shine through:

It’s sad when these things happen, and conservatives don’t want them to happen any more than liberals do. But where is the liberal outrage over the countless babies killed in the womb every year in America? Where is the rage for the epidemic of gang violence in major cities around the country happening on a daily basis?

Looks like the left’s hypocrisy just might be showing through again.
