Fox News left viewers stunned after this devastating betrayal
Fox News viewers could not believe what they were seeing.
It was something straight out of CNN.
And Fox News left viewers stunned after this devastating betrayal.
Fox News Sunday host Shannon Bream attacked Utah Senator Mike Lee over his opposition to the gun grab being negotiated in the United States Senate.
Bream accused Lee of double crossing his constituents by opposing gun-grabbing Democrats and anti-gun RINOs like Texas Senator John Cornyn for conspiring to gut the Second Amendment.
The gun grab on the table would allow the government to confiscate guns from anyone who had a bad break up or got into an argument on a date by closing the so-called “boyfriend loophole.”
It would also include red flag confiscation laws, which Democrats will exploit to seize guns from conservatives by claiming their political views make them “dangerous.”
“There is a lot of momentum, at least among the public sphere, for doing this,” Bream began. “Are you out of step with your constituents?”
Lee responded by saying that “what’s important is that we look out for the rights of constituents,” and that he would defend the Second Amendment, which is now under assault in Washington, D.C.
In response to Bream, Lee also knocked down the idea that gun control was actually popular by noting that the public polling did not include “questions about specific language within legislative text” and that the questions are framed in a way to help the Left.
Lee then expanded on his answer by telling Bream that the actual text of the gun-grab bill will eventually make it clear how dangerous this legislation is to the Second Amendment.
“It’s the job of the lawmaker to look out for the interest and the rights of the law-abiding citizens they represent. Each of those provisions — I understand how they can get high popularity readings when they don’t define them. For example, you talk about banning assault weapons. There is no universal definition of what an assault weapon is. Very often, the true distinction really depends on whether the stock pieces of the gun are made with wood, or of plastic, or of composite. So that text does matter here, because it is that text that will determine whether we are intruding unduly on the rights of the American law-abiding citizen, in doing so in a way that would actually deter violent criminal behavior,” Lee stated.
Fox News Channel is the number one rated cable news channel because viewers trust the hosts and reporters to push back against left-wing media myths.
But in this case, Shannon Bream was more than happy to parrot Democrat Party talking points about the supposed popularity of gun control.
