I got this in my email this morning from Huffington Post;
The video they show with the story is heavily edited by Newsy to make it appear as if a father who just lost his son in the Newtown shooting was heckled by pro-gun activists at the meeting;
But here’s the whole video picked up at Twitchy. The exchange happens at about 15 minutes.
Actually, he asks the whole roomful of people who needs semiautomatic rifles with large capacity “clips” (his word, not mine). After looking around the room, he says “see, no one can answer” and then he gets an answer from some people “2d Amendment”. No one heckled him – they were answering his question…a question to which he fully expected an answer.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe thought it was a good idea to mischaracterize the exchange as well;
This has me so angry that I need some liquid depressants. It’d make a preacher spit. F**k these assholes.
