After the horrific Las Vegas massacre yesterday, late night ‘comedian’ Jimmy Kimmel ranted about the need for more gun control, even though not all the facts have come to light regarding the guns used in the shooting. He spent much of his show shaming Republicans for not increasing background checks or doing more to prevent the mentally ill from owning guns:
“He then tried to shame all GOP Senators, saying: ‘These are the faces Senators who days after the shooting in Orlando voted against the bill that would have closed those loopholes. These are the 56 Senators that didn’t want to do anything about that.’ Facts are damned for Kimmel. The Orlando nightclub shooter didn’t buy his guns at a gun show, so how would that have stopped it?
“The late-night comedian also pointed out that “90 percent of Democrats—I’m not talking about politicians, I’m talking about people—and 77 percent of Republicans support background checks at gun shows.” Which is good, because that’s what happens. “89 percent of Republicans and Democrats are in favor of restricting gun ownership for the mentally ill.” Which comes up in background checks, yet he declared that the GOP Senators voted against those things. Kimmel even admitted that the Vegas shooter wouldn’t have been weeded out this way because he had no criminal record.
“’And by the way, the House of Representatives will be voting on a piece of legislation this week, it’s a bill to legalize the sale of silencers for guns,’ he stated in disgust, thinking that Hollywood’s depiction of suppressors was scientifically accurate. It was yet another Fake News story that was debunked by a more level-headed mind.”
Although we know little about what shooter Stephen Paddock used in his attack, it has been confirmed that he had no criminal background or history of diagnosed mental illness. So unless Kimmel is aware of some mind-reading device that can be used prior to gun purchasing, there is no law that could have prevented this tragedy.
But what we can be sure of is that Kimmel is clearly anti-gun. He doesn’t believe in the 2nd Amendment and thinks guns do not belong in the hands of people like you and me.
So it must be rather embarrassing for him that he just hired a bunch of armed guards to protect him on his show. And why? Because he’s afraid of Trump supporters and protesters at his show:
“Jimmy Kimmel‘s latest crusade against Donald Trump has led to incidents with Trump supporters and has forced the late-night host to up security at his show tapings.
“Sources close to the show tell The Blast that ever since Kimmel re-ignited his campaign against the Republicans’ health care proposals, the comedian has had some issues with protesters at the show.
“We’re told the show has responded by adding security to the tapings — increasing personnel at both the front and back entrances. According to our sources, the additional security consists of highly-trained, off-duty police officers.
“Our sources say that in addition to protesters at the show, several “concerning” emails and letters have been sent to production.”
So it’s ok for an entitled, overpaid Hollywood elitist to have trained guards protect him but law-abiding citizens aren’t entitled to own a gun for protection?
Sadly, we can’t all afford “highly-trained, off-duty police officers” to protect us, so we’re kind of on our own. But hey, screw the little guy, right Jimmy?
I have to admit, there’s one mind-boggling question I can’t seem to shake out of my head. How did Jimmy Kimmel go from exploiting women he called ‘juggies’ jumping on tramploines to the left’s moral authority?
