“We don’t gag Americans before they go to the theater…”

Andrea Mitchell takes the position that Americans’ “inalienable rights” may be infringed upon by the federal government, including our freedom of speech and Second Amendment rights. Eric Pratt, of Gun Owners for America, provided a well thought out analogy that took apart Mitchell’s argument. All this in the first two minutes.

    The media sure has locked on to the name “Bushmaster” like it represents all military styled weapons. It’s like referring to all cars as “Camrys.” Idiots.

    First thing out of her mouth was “Is there anything you can point to that makes the President look like he’s right on this issue?”. Then, she can claim that even gun lobbyists agree with the President’s proposals.

  3. notamobster says:

    Yeah, um, Andrea… yeah, when one person is talking and everyone else is forced to listen… yeah, that’s not a “conversation” per se, it’s more of a lecture.

    Bravo on catching the “Bill of Needs”!

    I think all children should be “off limits”, Aaannndrea!

    So, Andrea, in summary, how does it feel to have your backside handed to you on your own show?

      The amazing part is that I’m sure she thought she won the arguments.

      • Uke says:

        Much like Piers Morgan against Ben Shapiro. They live in an echo chamber of leftist back-slapping and glad-handing, that any argument in opposition to their own sounds absurd. After all, they’ve nearly literally never heard anyone make X argument, so it “must” be absurd.

    We dont gag the media either, just how long does she think she would have to express her views if she was speaking against gov policies in a land with no rights guaranteed by constitution.

    They never stop to think, their right to spout crap out of their mouth is bought and paid for by those who spilled blood on her behalf and who will in the future.

    Just once I’d like a spokesman to ask the question would you fight and die to ensure my right to bear arms? when the response is no, of course not. The correct response would be, there is the difference between liberal and conservative, you would not fight for my right to bear arms, but I would fight for your right to free speech even though you use that right to undermine mine. You are sorry individual who will wish for my kind when your rights are denied.

    You know damn well when she started spouting off about “fire in a theater” she thought she was the smartest person to ever walk the earth.

  6. Matt says:

    He pretty well destroyed Andrea’s argument and rubbed her face in it. But, that’s kind of like beating a kid in a wheelchair in the 50 yard dash.

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    You know, it is legal and encouraged to yell fire in a crowded theater if, in fact, the theater is on fire. I have yet to hear any one try to ban the lawful use of shouted warnings in crowded, burning theaters.

    • Greg B says:

      Lets ban assault fires!!!

    • Matt says:

      Yes, but we should control shouted warnings based on tone and volume. No civilian has any reason to use a scary, loud, military-type shouting tone even if the theater is, in fact, on fire. Now, there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists, publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty because I want to stop loud, military-type shouting. Not because that’s true. But because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves.

  8. R.D. Walker says:

    – Shouting false warnings of non-existent fires in theaters
    – Shooting kids at a school with an AR-15

    – Shouting legitimate warnings in burning theater
    – Using AR-15 for sporting and self defense purposes

    The argument that, since shouting false warnings of non-existent fires is illegal, ownership of AR-15 should also be illegal is exactly the same as….

    Arguing that, since shooting kids at school is illegal, shouting warnings to patrons of burning theaters should also be illegal.

    These people are idiots.

    • notamobster says:

      “These people are idiots.” Hear! hear!

      It’s a shame that more folks don’t use the vast Revo resources to learn how to shoot down stoopid arguments. 🙂

    • Uke says:

      Your analogy, piggy-backing off the one in the video, is brilliant.

      Maybe we should just ban cattle auctioneers. Nobody has any need for such rapid-fire, assault speech.

    When I see those body bags coming in at Dover AFB I can’t stop thinking- ” For what- The, 47%? What a waste”. But then I remember a real America and I rationalize that I am profoundly thankful. But still, for what?. Can’t seem to shake it.
