CNN Town Hall on Gun Policy: The Five Most Talked-About Moments

CNN Town Hall on Gun Policy: The Five Most Talked-About Moments

Loesch, a former conservative talking head, made the remarks Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Conservative Political Action Conference a night after the CNN town hall.

But Loesch accused the media of exploiting the tragedy. "I'm not saying that you can be everywhere at once, but that's why you have to follow up on these red flags". "Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back [of the room]". Any suggestion that the NRA is finally acknowledging the inadequacy of gun control laws is laughable unless one counts using bump stocks to turn semi-automatic rifles into virtual automatic ones.

CNN hosted a nationally televised Town Hall meeting Wednesday with participants from Stoneman Douglas School, South Florida lawmakers and a spokesperson from the Nation Rifle Association.

"Now, I want to answer your question, and I want to be allowed the opportunity, which is why I am here, to talk and have this discussion with you all and answer these questions", she continued as the crowd jeered her.

They also questioned National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch about the organization's stance on the system for purchasing firearms. And it was over 5000 people.

"I was a very politically active teenager and I'm on this stage as a result of that", she said.

Warren Buffett's annual letter: Berkshire got a $29 billion gift
The S&P 500 index fund Buffett backed generated an 8.5 percent average annual gain and easily outpaced the hedge funds. Turning to investments, Berkshire's Apple holding was up to $28.2B at year-end, second only to Wells Fargo at $29.3B.


"I don't believe that this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm, ever", she said. Just a few days earlier, while interviewing two anti-gun students, she allowed them to say exactly that.

But what raises the exchange by Ms. Loesch into Alternative Fact of the Week territory is her shameless monologue about how she's on the side of those Florida teens who are crying out for gun control.

Fellow right-wing commentator Dinesh D'Souza was dropped from the CPAC lineup after mocking victims of the Florida tragedy on Twitter.

Deutch said he and other legislators will introduce legislation to make sure that assault weapons are illegal in every part of this country when they return to Washington next week.

The mother of a teacher killed at Stoneman Douglas, Scott Beigel, pointedly asked Loesch why her son's inalienable rights - to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - were not "protected as fiercely as the right to bear arms".

Loesch noted that she needed her own armed security detail just to get out of the town hall that CNN had hosted because the liberal audience was so hostile toward her.

Steve Jobs biodata expected to fetch $50000 in auction
Jobs worked as a technician for games publisher Atari prior to co-founding Apple with Steve Wozniak in 1976. Jobs died later that year of respiratory arrest resulting from the spread of a pancreatic tumor.


Painting people with mental illness as criminal ranks among Loesch's preferred tactics whenever she's called upon to deflect attention away from the NRA's refusal to budge on policy.

So here I am, writing to assure our readers that no, the media does not love mass shootings.

"I call BS!" she said to cheers.

Ms Loesch herself has called on NRA members to march "to the Federal Bureau of Investigation offices" over its failure to act on tip-offs it received about suspected gunman Nikolas Cruz being unsafe, the Daily Beast reported.

Nope. She actually says, "we have a system that's flawed".

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida followed Nelson, acknowledging the shortcomings of his own party with regard to gun-law reform, and lamenting the fraught political discourse now roiling the US.

Instead the group blames those whose "hatred of guns" stops them from seeing how to best protect their children.
