While in his opening monologue on Monday evening’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, host Jimmy Kimmel made several fake or deceptive statements about gun laws as component of a push to disgrace Congress into enacting elevated gun control measures subsequent Sunday’s attack on a country music concert in Las Vegas that left 59 folks dead and hundreds more injured.
As luck would have it, he did this after confessing that the Las Vegas attacker complied with all gun controls in buying a variety of firearms- which means he passed background checks for those guns. Furthermore, Kimmel even confessed that the attacker had “no criminal record,” and thus, nothing to keep him from passing a check to obtain a gun.
Media noted Monday that the attacker bought three guns within the last year from Guns & Guitars in Mesquite, Nevada, where store manager Christopher Sullivan mentioned the attacker came across as “a normal guy.” Sullivan mentioned the attacker had no criminal history and pointed out that he passed a FBI background check for his firearms.
Kimmel is proper on one point-there was absolutely nothing in the attacker’s past that indicated a issue. But after making that point, Kimmel contended that there are still things that Congress could be executing (and this is where the falehoods and/or misdirection come into play).
1. Kimmel stated, “Orlando, Aurora, Newtown, San Bernardino, [in] every one of these shootings the murderer used automatic or semiautomatic rifles.” The addition of the word “automatic” is very deceptive. In all four situations the rifle utilized was semiautomatic, period. Pistols were also found. Furthermore, Kimmel did not point out that in three of the four instances, the attackers obtained their guns via background checks. Exceptions to this would be the rifles utilized in San Bernardino-they were obtained via a friend-but the San Bernardino handguns were obtained via a background check. And the guns utilized by the Newtown attacker were stolen. He stole them from someone who passed a background check for them.
2. Kimmel made the typical leftist claim that AR-15s and the like “are not weapons used for self-defense.” In doing so, he disregarded the report of the Houston boy who utilized his father’s AR-15 to defend his sister’s life during a home invasion. When the two intruders broke into the residence, the boy grabbed his father’s AR and shot one of them three times. He also disregarded the Michigan gas station owner who prevented a robbery in progress at his station by pulling his AR-15 on the robbers. He also disregarded the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, son who was home alone when he utilized his father’s AR-15 to prevent a home invasion by shooting all three suspects. The suspects perished but the son’s life was maintained.
3. He falsely accused President Trump of “signing a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns legally.” This was a reference to Trump’s repeal of Obama’s Social Security gun ban; a ban that was in fact not directed toward folks with severe mental illness but toward recipients of disability benefits who needed help with finances. Indeed, mental health labels were given to these folks, but those labels could reference effortlessly treatable and temporary conditions. This is why Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science professor Jeffrey Swanson stated Obama’s Social Security gun ban targeted the “vulnerable” rather than the dangerous.
4. He stated that House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “won’t do anything about [the attack] because the NRA has their balls in a money clip.” In truth, Alternative News Media has been reporting that NRA-supported legislation revolving around concealed carry reciprocity has stalled because of Ryan.
5. Kimmel stated, “Right now, there are loopholes in the law that let people avoid background checks if they buy a gun privately-from another party-if they buy a gun online or at a gun show.” For beginners, there is no loophole. The Second Amendment was ratified in 1791 and since that point (and prior to), Americans have been purchasing guns from Americans. It is not a loophole, it is freedom. The left pressed background checks and secured them on retail sales in 1998-i.e., there have been background checks on retail sales for practically two decades-and the left has invested the last four or five years dubiously explaining private sales as a “loophole” as a way to convince Americans to support more gun control. Furthermore, it must be mentioned that it is illegal to purchase a gun online without going through a background check. If an person from Florida desires to buy a firearm online from a gun store in Oklahoma, that gun has to be shipped to an Oklahoma store where the buyer passes a background check prior to taking possession of it.
6. Kimmel then showed a collage made up of the photographs of Senators who voted in opposition to closing the fictional private sale, online sales, and gun show “loopholes” after the June 12, 2016, Orlando Pulse False Flag Attack. He did not point out that the Orlando Pulse attacker didn’t utilize these “loopholes.” Instead, he passed background checks and a waiting period for his guns.
7. As a final point, Kimmel stated Congress is now working hard to “legalize the sale of silencers.” In truth, “silencers”-or suppressors, as they are correctly called-have been legal and are legal in 42 states. They are commonly owned and utilized by hunters and sport shooters because of the hearing protection benefits they provide. What Congress is contemplating is a bill that removes the federal tax on suppressors, as well as the problematic acquisition process to get one.
