Cenk Knocks Down Talking Point That It's The Wrong Time To Talk About Gun Control


From the Young Turks: Cenk on #CTShooting (Part 1): ‘They don’t want you to talk about it now because they don’t want you to talk about it ever’:

Cenk weighs in on the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn., asking again what it will take for politicians to act on gun control.

“There’s no way in the world they all would have been dead if that shooter didn’t have a gun,” he says. “No way, no how. People will make their ridiculous arguments…about how you can kill people with other things… but they don’t. They kill them with guns. And they killed 20 young kids today with a gun. They tell us, not now, not now. Don’t talk about it. Don’t politicize it. It’s a trick. They don’t want you to talk about it now because they don’t want you to talk about it ever. Because they don’t want to fix it. People like the NRA and who represent gun manufactuers want to sell guns and more guns at all costs. All costs, at costs even as high as this. Which is why they will send all their lap dogs in politics — which is almost all of the Republicans and a significant chunk of the Democrats — to say ‘not now.’ If not now, when? When do we talk about it?”
