If he was hoping his ‘softball’ question would get him a great anti-gun soundbite, he was very mistaken.
Most of us would consider using a student that had just gone through trauma that left 17 people dead as a political pawn coldly insensitive. It would never occur to us.
But then again, Brian Williams works for MSNBC. Where nothing is beneath their ‘journalistic standards’, not even hiring someone who habitually reports bogus news.
For point of reference, and to remind any leftist fans of his, we’ll append a few other lowlights of his career toward the end of this article.
Back to the interview, cued up to his odd question at the 3:30 mark:
After some of the usual questions about their own recollection of the incident, or their impressions of the accused, Brian went in for his soundbite:
“If you were a lawmaker, an adult in a decision-making position, how would you stop, do you think, the kind of thing that happened today? A kid who had been thrown out comes back with a weapon and takes out whatever grievance he’s been walking around with in his head.”
Wow. Too bad he didn’t save a question like that for an adult. Because Doug Giles has a few thoughts on what might stop something like this:
But even Brian should have realized it was a dumb question. “If you were … an adult,” he said. Seriously?
Becuase haven’t most high school students given long and careful thought to balancing the complex issues that go into drafting legislation that protects citizens without sacrificing important civil rights?
He didn’t care about any of that. He was looking for an emotional gun-grabber compatible answer.
It isn’t what he got.
Gun-wise, I don’t think there’s any way to prevent it. You outlaw guns, it just creates higher demand for it. I think it has to do with mental health, though. If he’s been expelled three different times from three different schools, I think he should be helped out.
Somehow he wasn’t fired, (merely suspended) even when his own employer called him out for lying again and again.

As for his callous disregard for human life in the context of political goals? There is a precedent:

One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
