Outrage of the Week

Friday, April 26, 2013

National Public Radio describes its trademark, long-running weekday show, All Things Considered, as a mix of "news, interviews, commentaries, reviews, and offbeat features."  We can now add "acerbic rants" to that descriptive list, thanks to the outrageous comments of anti-gun Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D). 

Malloy was interviewed recently on the show after the U. S. Senate rejected proposed sweeping federal gun-control measures for which he strongly advocated.

According to a NewsBusters.org article, during the interview, anchor Melissa Block read back to Malloy his previous, slanderous comments about gun manufacturers--"The gun industry wants to sell as many guns to as many people as possible, even if they're deranged, mentally ill or have a criminal background - they don't care."--and asked Malloy for his comments. 

Malloy responded by stating that respected Connecticut gun manufacturers Colt, Sturm-Ruger, Mossberg, and Stag Arms "created the NRA," and by calling NRA a "monster" that prevents the government from making children safer. 

Not only that, but when he was asked what it will take to pass gun control, Malloy outrageously suggested that pro-gun U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)--who helped defeat the anti-gun measures in the Senate--might need a mass-shooting in his home state of Iowa to get him to change his position.

Interviewer Block: "Well, if Congress didn't pass these measures now, so soon after the Newtown shooting and with many visits to Capitol Hill by these grieving families from Newtown, what would it take?"

Gov. Malloy's response: "I think, you know, if there's a mass shooting in Iowa, you'll have asked (sic) Senator Grassley if he's changed position."

That is not only twisted and irrational thinking, it is completely outrageous.
