CNN's Michael Smerconish Laments No New Gun Control After Shootings
On Saturday's Smerconish show, CNN host Michael Smerconish responded to the Virginia Beach shootings by beginning his show with a commentary complaining about the absence of new gun control in the aftermath of other such shootings, and recalled dropping his NRA membership years ago. Smerconish's liberal commentary even inspired agreement from DNC chair Tom Perez who appeared as a guest in the next segment. After starting his commentary by regrettting that many have "become accustomed to" mass shootings and that they are unlikely to result in any new gun control, he continued: “I threw in the towel after Sandy Hook. If the murder of 20 children didn't change anything, then nothing will because, as we've shown time and again, we lack the collective will to fundamentally retrench from ingrained notions of gun ownership in American society. We have a disproportionate number of weapons in this country and, not surprisingly, an outsized amount of gun violence.”
But right-leaning crime researcher John Lott has documented that the U.S. has disproportionately fewer mass shooting deaths in public places than other parts of the world. The CNN host noted his negative view of the NRA as he added: "And, by the way, I offer these thoughts as a firearm owner, but someone who decades ago quit the NRA. And oh how pleased I'd be to have my pessimism proven wrong." At 9:12 a.m. Eastern, as an interview began with Perez, the DNC chair praised Smerconish's advocacy of more gun control: "But I want to thank you for what you did in the first 10 minutes or so of this show." He then promised Democrats would push for more action. Smerconish then brought up a question from a right-leaning viewer that he had read earlier and claimed that the U.S. has a "gun problem" unlike other countries in spite of evidence to the contrary:
SMERCONISH: I was kicking myself during the commercial break because we posted a comment where somebody said we have a "people problem." And all through the commercial break, I'm beating myself up saying what I should have said is, "We don't have a monopoly on bad people in this country. We don't have a monopoly on mental health issues in this country, We have a gun problem in this country." That's what I wanted to say to that guy. -- Perez agreed: “Absolutely, we can do something about this problem if we muster the will to take on the NRA, and that's what we're going to do. It's not going to happen in the short run. That's why we have elections -- that's why I'm at the DNC, to build an America where we can be safe.”

You have my permission to please copy any of my videos to spread the word. Please post them on Facebook. I am Brian Ruhe, a truther who is interested in the biggest problems facing the whole world. I have made over 2000 videos since 2011. I have taught Buddhism for 20 years and am the author of two books.
From the YT video description - "Under CIA instruction, dutifully to the FBI, with permission of the highest of my command, President Obama, I David Anthony Ruck orchestrated the mass shooting in Christchurch killing, 50 Muslims at prayer, in order to create "social unrest" for the "better future" of the American people. God forgive me. I give up all personal rights of privacy and demand all declassification of all documentation from all time withheld by all agencies on me to be made public and accept all arguments from any entity to the access of all documents and information on me in any format."
We are not denying nor accepting what he is saying in this video - we are storing it here for reference should it be necessary later. This person, apparently David Anthony Ruck, was publishing very frequently - even several times a day - until this video was published, the stopped altogether. We have downloaded several other videos of his for later publishing should this story develop any traction. As it is, he had just more than 1300 subscribers and we are not sure WHO his subscribers are / were. We will provide more videos as the situation warrants such, until then we only want to make the public aware of this story.
What makes this NOT believable is there is no evidence provided, only emotions. Also, given that H is notorious for terminating anyone with any information that could incriminate her, anyone with any wisdom would have gone covert not public with their information. Still, that is a projection on how we would have operated, not David.
It's becoming all too common that we are told to "punch a nazi". Lately it's been escalated to "shoot a nazi". In this video I explore why this escalation is happening, how to stop it, and why you SHOULDN'T shoot a nazi.
I tried posting this video earlier but for some reason the original posting does not work. Below is the text from the video
UPDATE!!! I just thought of something. If we gave all the kids in schools paint ball markers with salt balls (which would be paint ball shells full of salt and silicon dioxide), then these shootings could likely be very effectively neutralized without using actual fire arms. And there would be an advantage that the negative effects of friendly fire would be very limited. The salt in the balls would cause the shooter's weapon to jam, on top of hurting like crap upon impact and along with severely effecting the shooter’s eyes and air passages, especially with hordes of people firing them at the shooter. All without destroying anyone’s freedom. This should be very effective. Please write your representatives and push this idea. Please write what you think in the comments section.
Please CNN, NBC, CBS, FOX and the rest of the talking heads... Leave the phony drama for your Mama! Enough with the Fake Shootings! We're on to you.
The barrage of Fake Shootings incidents occurring in different cities and particularly in schools, is a government psychological-operation conducted to turn the tide of public opinion against those who are proponents of the 2nd Amendment, of our supposedly law of the land: the US Constitution. These traitors in the District of Criminals and their ex-con accomplices want us unarmed and they'll stop short of nothing to achieve their objective: total disarmament of the American Sheep-hole. Eventually, they will have to conduct another orchestrated 911 event and blame it on some militia group to get the majority of Americans to give up their weapons of choice. I hope I'm wrong.
This video clearly shows ex-cons acting as victims and eyewitness -- if it wasn't so sad it would be laughable. Some of them received lethal bullet wounds to either the head, chest, heart, liver and lungs during the mass staged shootings and miraculously recovered. And within minutes give a 30-50 minute interview on live coast-to-coast TV. This is pure Hollywood fiction at its worst.
