“Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it,”“Now I’m not saying that you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back (of the room).”“And notice I said ‘crying white mothers’ because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend, and you don’t see town halls for them, do you?”“Where’s the CNN town hall for Chicago? Where’s the CNN town hall for sanctuary cities?”
Dana will be called unhinged, and one of the most important points made during the town hall Wednesday will be missed. Dana brought up the point that only 38 states are providing less than 80% of felony convictions to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). This is critical as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) uses data from the NCIC to approve background checks for gun purchases.
It will not matter how many laws you put in place for gun control, if the background checks system doesn’t have all the information it needs to do the job it supposed to do.
Dana is right that no one talks about the flaws with NICS, the day after the town hall no one wrote about it or spoke about it. But she also added to the distraction with her CPAC speech.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
