Leftists, especially if they work for CNN, don’t know what they’re talking about. This was amply illustrated previously here at Bearing Arms. However, there’s a lot of derp flying over the airwaves from CNN, and it all warrants being slapped down early and often.
CNN personality Chris Cillizza opined on the gun control debate recently, and what he said was…well, it was awful in its inaccuracies, but luckily, Jay Caruso was up to the challenge for smacking Cillizza down.
When reporters use terms such as “automatic rounds” and “semi-automatic machine guns,” the public is less informed on public policy. There is no such thing as an “automatic round” or “semi-automatic machine guns,” but the terms sound intimidating and mislead the public into thinking they exist.
Chris Cillizza wrote an article at CNN that is loaded with errors and shouldn’t have made it past an editor with any knowledge of firearms and firearm laws. Cillizza writes:
On its face, Congress’ resistance to passing any sort of gun control measures makes no sense.
Things like closing the so-called gun show loophole or restricting the mentally ill from buying guns are supported by huge majorities of Republicans and Democrats.
