In an attempt to prop up the failing gun control movement, television host David Letterman clamored for more gun control during a discussion with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper last night on The Late Show With David Letterman.
The nearly four minute segment was little more than a ploy to attack the Second Amendment, with Letterman setting aside comedy in favor of asking loaded questions designed to make the audience believe that support for gun control is much larger than it actually is.
“Daily in this country, a child or an underaged boy or girl is shot and killed by a gun,” he said. “And then we had the situation in Santa Barbara, California where a fellow was unbalanced and killed people, then killed himself.”
“I certainly thought that Newtown [Sandy Hook] was going to be the landmark, changing, touchstone point in this country where we changed our understanding and awareness about gun ownership.”
Letterman then claimed that gun control would somehow “improve” gun ownership without “eliminating guns,” a common lie considering that gun control ultimately leads to the confiscation of once-legal firearms.
“People are shot and killed each and every day by private handgun ownership,” he said. “You can’t tell me that this isn’t an insoluble problem.”
Letterman also asked how the case for gun control is not “cut and dry.”
“I’m not anti-gun,” he claimed, “but for the love of Christ, when are we going to do something about this nonsense?”
It’s no accident that anti-gun propaganda is becoming more common on TV shows, movies and other forms of mass entertainment.
For one thing, the gun control movement did not originate from the grassroots but is rather a top-down movement bankrolled by powerful politicians such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg who want nothing more than to expand government powers at the expense of individual liberties.
Grassroots gun rights organizations, on the other hand, attract thousands of individuals who are working not to advance the agenda of politicians but to defend their birth rights, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they dwarf gun control groups.
Case in point, a panel discussion on gun control during the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas last March failed to attract more than a handful of people.
Compare that to the grassroots open carry rally that also occurred during SXSW which attracted well over 100 gun owners on a weekday.
So in response to this obvious lack of support for gun control, the establishment is increasingly using TV shows, sports and movies to try and sway public opinion against the Second Amendment, which is exactly what happened last night on The Late Show With David Letterman and in 2012 when American sportscaster Bob Costas gave an anti-gun speech to millions of Americans who were watching an NFL game.
And this strategy to brainwash people into supporting unpopular gun control legislation was laid out by Attorney General Eric Holder back in 1995.
“We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” he said to the Woman’s National Democratic Club.

Good find, NC. Yes, we’ll be seeing a lot more propaganda.
Like this piece says, “A Tsunami of Gun Control is Forming.”
Didnt this jerk have his heart removed? Seems so…Hey Davy, how will parents protect their children from the bad guys that dont follow any laws, let alone gun laws?? I’ll bet this ahole has an armory in his basement….When will he give up his armed security??
These turds discuss scrapping guns, what a queer team. Oh, and they thought Sandy Hoax was the one we would all caved in on. Go back to your think tanks, and come up with another hoax that will fail!!!!
Letterman Is a derelict with money.
I wonder who in the WH wrote that for him….
Did he miss a single liberal hot button? Also looking for “the one” (incident) that will force their agenda. That shows the mentality of never letting a good crisis go to waste, and hoping for one to come along. The purpose of gun ownership is to prevent the next “one”.
shut your face dave. Dance and sing for the jew handlers.
This guy owns race cars. like nascar or formula1. I say we ban profit from pollution like the 500 mile circle of retardation know as nascar. We should seize the money made by the team owners and use it to clean up the pollution.
-Just kidding. Im against banning anything except government and authority. I am a ‘constitutional anarchist’ after all..lol
stupid move Dave
although he has become irrelevant over the past 10 years or so anyways , who cares what David Letterman thinks anyways
Im also sure he owns armed guards, so he’s also the typical Hollywood Hypocrite
I knew there was damn good reason why I always hated this freak! Spent many years avoiding this *ssholes show along with the rest of the Late night bunch. Now back to positive thoughts…
These control freaks on TV and in politics will continue this call for a “common sense” discussion. The only positive from this hype is it helps shake the sheeple from a decades too long slumber. This ongoing wave of gun control rhetoric is a sure sign of desperation. The control fanatic’s will never have the will power to realize that someone must to force any tool to operate. The control freaks have no culpability in their actions which is why tragedy to this group is a manifestation of the tool and never the individual, remember the ends justify the means for these types of people . The control fanatics cannot assign any responsibility to the individual and keep the group cohesive. If an individual is responsible then they all are not part of the collective they so vehemently defend. Its the group that keeps these looters in power without this power they are only small pathetic whiners in an attempt to again take that which belongs to others.
Please understand that our rights are freely given by God and natural law, which have been affirmed in the constitution of the US, not the other way around.
