As stated by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Despite this, Chuck Toss, a host for “Meet the Press” on NBC, has gone on record stating that that amendment does not mean that Americans have the right to bear arms at all.
“This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist,” stated Todd while on his show this past Sunday.
Todd has been known to go on massive anti-GOP, anti-gun rants in order to open his show, seemingly running along in the footsteps of many liberals who want to blame anyone for offering “thoughts and prayers” in the wake of a shooting event that took place in Texas which claimed the lives of 19 children and 2 adults.
“It’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy. Thoughts and prayers, nothing we can do,” stated Todd. “No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers.”
Todd made the argument that the law is the reason for this.
“How do we allow an 18-year-old, in this case, [the shooter], to buy assault rifles and accumulate more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition, all legally, mind you,” stated Todd. “Whether it’s guns, or climate change, or protecting our democracy, we no longer have a politics that can meet these crucial moments that we face.”
The show host seemed to blame the American people, whining that “no member of Congress has been voted out of office for being too pro-gun. Not one!”
“Until the majorities who claim they want tougher background checks and to get assault weapons off the street, vote like they mean it. We can expect to hear more calls for thoughts and prayers and that’s it,” stated Todd.
Todd’s outright dismissal of the Second Amendment cropped up once Filmmaker Michael Moore stated “We need a moratorium on gun sales … time to repeal the Second Amendment.”
“We won’t acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with,” whined Moore on MNBC. “This country was birthed in violence with the genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun. This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We don’t want to acknowledge our two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability for us to become who we became.”
“We need a moratorium, perhaps, on gun sales. Who will say on this network or any other network in the next few days it’s time to repeal the Second Amendment? Oh, you can’t say that. Well, why not? Why not?” claimed Moore.
