Erick Erickson Typifies Conservative Insanity On Gun Control
December 6, 2015

Even though America is averaging one mass shooting a day, and no matter how many Americans get massacred by automatic weapons, conservatives will never admit that having unfettered access to all types of assault weapons is insane. They write and discuss these issues as if having rapid firing AK15's is not only legal, but beautiful.

The NY Times editorial board, uncharacteristically wrote an op-ed about this problem called End the Gun Epidemic in America

It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and on

Here's a typical reaction from one of the main reactionaries in the right wing media. I know he did this to attract attention to himself, but this is exactly the type of response the NRA pays for.

Digby highlighted a new shopping cable channel for you to enjoy, it's called GunTV

As the fractious debate over American gun laws continues, two people in California are preparing to launch the country’s first all-gun home shopping television channel.

Created by Doug Bornstein and Valerie Castle—both of whom previously worked for home shopping networks—the new channel, named GunTV, is scheduled to launch on January 20, during the gun industry’s annual multi-day SHOT Show in Las Vegas. It will go live via national satellite and cable TV providers and eventually air 24 hours a day.


GunTV, also known as GTV Live Shopping, will broadcast gun-related programming and sell firearms, ammunition and accessories. "The ease and convenience of purchasing firearms will be as simple as consumers calling a toll-free number and placing their order," GunTV says in a promotional video. The channel will also air safety, training and instructional content every hour, according to its website, as well as commercials from on.

And how can we forget Ted Cruz' certifiably nutty machine gun bacon video.
