Chris Matthews: Republican Gun ‘Fanatics’ Believe Everyone Has a Right to Own Tanks

Screenshot
Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews said Republicans were “fanatics” on guns and that they even supported private ownership of tanks. Matthews said, “The Republican platform protects magazines. It protects AR-15s. It protects everything that is even discussed. They haven’t gotten to this bump thing yet, this thing that changes the gun into an automatic. But they clearly when they hear something’s coming their way, they put it in their platform and say, ‘Leave it alone.’ They are fanatics. The Republican Party as a party is a fanatic party on guns.” He added, “Well you know what the Republican’s says in their platform that the right to bear arms precedes the Constitution. It’s a God-given sort of theological right. They treat this like religion. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s a religious, essential notion to them that everybody should have any kind of gun they want, any—a bazooka, a tank. They never put a limit on it, ever.” (h/t WFB) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

David Brooks: Gun Debate a ‘Proxy for the Big Cultural Dispute’ — ‘Higher Education and Lower Education’


Friday on PBS’s “NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks described the ongoing gun control debate in the wake of last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas to be a “proxy” for the larger culture divide underway in America. Brooks argued that the divide, which he was similar on many other issues, fell along the lines of education. “You know, one of the things that struck me about the polling on people’s gun rights or gun control is that, in 2000, not that long ago, two-thirds of Americans supported gun control, and only 29 percent supported gun rights,” Brooks said. “Now it’s about 50/50. And so the gun rights people have just had a massive shift in their direction. And that’s because the issue has now — perfectly mirrors the political divide in this country and the cultural divide between coastal and rural, between more — higher education and lower education, the divide we see on issue after issue.” “And it’s become sort of a proxy for the big cultural dispute,” he continued. “And a lot of the people who are trying to resist the post-industrial takeover of the country have seized on guns and immigration and the flag and a few
