The horrible tragedy in Las Vegas where Stephen Paddock murdered 59 people and injured hundreds more has brought out the very worst of the lunatic left. Hillary Clinton and the liberal machine were predictably out in full-force calling for more gun control, using the deaths of innocent Americans to push their leftist agenda to disarm law-abiding gun owners. The liberal mainstream media was more than happy to help except that when the left starts to talk about guns, it is clear they have no clue what they are talking about.
Case in point, CBS, quick to appease the lunatic left, decided to invent a new kind of ammunition that does not exist. Tweeting a link to a CBS report, the inept news network said, “While the guns Stephen Paddock used in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal under ATF rules.” Here is the problem. There is no such thing as automatic rounds, and to date CBS has not edited or deleted this Tweet. Meaning they did this on purpose to drum up hysteria, or they are just so obtuse they haven’t a clue. Logic dictates that a little bit of both of these explanations is more likely. Even worse than not correcting the Tweet, they never mentioned the error in their updated article.

The Twitterverse had a field day with CBS. Dr. Sebastian Gorka Tweeted, “Yet again, @CBSNews demonstrates they know nothing about the subject they write on.” Other Twitter users were just as angry and not so surprised that CBS, with all their expert journalists invented a new term when it comes to ammunition.

The left has made no secret of their intention to attempt and disarm law-abiding citizens. Jimmy Kimmel went on late night TV carrying on about gun control, yet he increased his own personal security detail. Hillary Clinton attempted to blame the NRA not even 24 hours after the tragic shooting, and you had all these leftist anti-gun groups protesting in the streets.
CBS News was not the only liberal network to make up fake news when speaking about this horrible tragedy. The Clinton News Network (CNN) decided to create animation depicting how a bump stock works. The only issue was the animation they used does not depict a bump stock at all. What it does show is an animated figure firing an AR-15 type weapon with an M203 grenade launcher on the end of the weapon. Aside from not knowing what a bump stock is or how it functions, the geniuses at CNN decided to add in the grenade launcher for effect without mentioning this is not something Stephen Paddock had, nor can you buy this item in a firearms store. You can watch this debacle below.
There certainly are many questions revolving around Stephen Paddock’s actions, his possible motives, and how he managed to get numerous rifles and thousands of rounds of ammunition into his hotel room. ISIS has claimed that they radicalized Stephen Paddock, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation has denied this claim.
What the liberal machine fails to understand is that all of the weapons Stephen Paddock had in his possession were illegal proving, that no matter what gun control measures are in place, criminals will still be able to arm themselves. The liberal media, along with the Democrats in Washington D.C., have acted way beyond irresponsible in the aftermath of this tragedy. Frankly, their actions have been disgusting, but this is nothing new from the lunatic left.
The issue at hand is not a gun issue in America but a mental health issue. How do we as a civilized society prevent psychopaths from obtaining firearms while still respecting the privacy and rights of law abiding gun owners? Not a simple question to answer but one that the National Rifle Association will need to confront before the liberal machine does it for them and the rest of America.
Sadly, at the end of the day, the left is only interested in fundamentally transforming America into a socialist utopia where only the police and military are armed. People like Hillary Clinton and Jimmy Kimmel who live behind a wall of armed guards have no interest in the safety or welfare of others. What they are interested is repealing the Second Amendment, and CBS and CNN are more than happy to help them.
