Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why additional background checks would not have stopped last weekend’s mass murders.
To have an effective universal background check, Levin explained, you would have to have universal gun regulation. Nevertheless, Levin said, the media are pushing the American people in one direction, toward greater gun control and away from the real problem.
There is “no discussion about bringing faith back into the public square and re-examining that,” Levin said. “No discussion about figuring out what kids are learning in our public schools that makes so many of them angry and hostile. No discussion about what takes place on our college campuses, the nature of the professors, what they teach, tenure. No discussion about the daily hate spewed 24/7 on CNN and MSNBC, or the pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post and all the rest. No discussion about any of that. No, no, no. Washington has decided. The press has won. We need to attack the Second Amendment. We need to attack the Fifth Amendment. And maybe the Fourth Amendment. Oh, yes. Because you see the problem, ladies and gentlemen, it’s the people. The general population. That’s the problem. None of what they plan to do — none of it — will stop anything. None of it. Hear me now: None of it.”
“Background checks, they say. What about Fort Hood? Many, many, many, many people complained … about the individual, that he was a psycho. Nobody listened. And of course, he slaughtered a number of people. You could look at each one of these, and then you can see how ridiculous these proposals are. But they’re not intended really to work; they’re intended to mollify you. It’s about power and politics. The Republicans are on the run. It’s an amazing thing: Every time there’s a mass murder, a horrendous event, how is it that the Democrats benefit and the Republicans are on the run? It’s the media: The media immediately grabs the narrative.”
