Joy Reid Says if NRA Had Its Way, MD Shooter Would Have Used an AR-15
Despite being a so-called
professional working for MSNBC, correspondent Joy Reid has made extremely
delusional remarks in the past, saying, for example, that the media is
Another genius on MSNBC
After the government shutdown over
DACA this year, she also tweeted that the Democrats won. We’re still not sure
what she meant, as it is well-known the Democrats caused the shutdown — caring
more about illegal immigrants than American citizens.
Well, she’s at it again.
This Tuesday, March 20th, Reid
Tweeted made an extremely off-putting remark in a tweet: “if the @NRA had its
way, that student who shot two people at his Maryland school would have had access
to an AR-15, not just a handgun.”
This reaction appears to be referring
to the National Rifle Association’s stance that 18 to 20-year olds have
constitutional rights to own and operate firearms. Those like Reid would like
to see the age for long gun purchases be raised from 18 to 21. Of course, it’s
definitely worth noting that the age of the shooter was 17.
Furthermore, the NRA has never made a
statement or even insinuated that it would support someone shooting up a school
with any type of gun, let alone an AR-15. Still, accusations like Reid’s
against the NRA are common. Student-turned-media-favorite David Hogg was
recently filmed saying that the NRA are “pathetic f***ers that want to keep
killing our children.”
It’s worth noting that, under federal
law as well as under Maryland state law, handgun purchases by those under the
age of 21 are prohibited. Those who want to purchase handguns in Maryland and
are over 21 also need to pay and apply for a handgun license, go through
training, and endure a waiting period of 1 full week before they can receive
The fact of the matter is that the
liberal media is doing everything it can to pretend that the Maryland shooting
was anything other than what it actually was — proof that bad guys with guns
are stopped with good guys with guns.
Two students were shot at Great Mills
High School in Great Hills, Maryland on March 20th. The shooter was Austin
Wyatt Rollins, 17. Apparently, Rollins had taken his father’s legally-owned gun
and brought it to his high school in order to shoot his ex-girlfriend Jaelynn
Willey as well as another student.
Willey was shot as was another
14-year-old male student. Willey is still in critical condition while the young
man who was shot was released after being treated for his wounds.
Deputy Blaine Gaskill
Fortunately, someone on the scene at
the school had a gun. St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Deputy Blaine Gaskill, a
school resource officer who had been assigned to the school in 2017, was armed
and took quick action to shoot the young man, who was killed on the scene.
Unlike the tragic event in Parkland,
the recent shooting saw a law enforcement officer actually doing his job. Well
done to St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Deputy Blaine Gaskill, and shame on Joy
Reid for purposely misunderstanding and disseminating lies about the NRA and
gun laws in this country.
Ed. Leave it to the Washington Post to try making the picture of Great Mills H.S. hero look like a mug shot. Typical. But the fact that he saved--well, who knows how many lives--this is not lost on the residents of St. Mary's County. If only there had been such a man at Parkland.
