Liberals Demand Action After Oregon Shooting But Can’t Offer a Single Solution (VIDEO)
Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review went on MSNBC this morning and pointed out that solving the problem of gun violence is complex and that many of the people who are most vocal about doing something don’t actually have a solution.
Mark Halperin took issue with this but when pressed, he also didn’t have a solution.
Partial transcript via the Washington Free Beacon:
“Joe Biden doesn’t know how to fix this problem. I don’t know how to fix this problem. I think it’s fair to say you don’t know how to fix this problem. It’s a very complex question in a country with 300 to 350 million guns on the street,” Cooke said. “The way they talk is as if they have the answer and there are these recalcitrant forces in the country that say ‘no, no, no,’ even though deep down they know their legislation will work. That’s simply not the case. It’s far more complicated than that.”
Halperin took issue with Cooke’s statement. He argued with Cooke’s attitude of simply labeling the issue as complicated and identifying what will not work. Instead, Halperin wanted leaders to “have a thirst and hunger and passion to try to come up with solutions.”
When further pressed by Cooke to offer his plan, Halperin explained he’s “not an expert in the field.”
Watch the exchange:
Most liberals will ultimately offer a total ban on guns as the solution to the problem.
