John Walsh wants to take on the NRA

I guess he wants his TV show to fail too:

Piers Morgan is gone from CNN, but new host John Walsh plans to continue his campaign for gun control.

Besides hosting “America’s Most Wanted” and advocating for victims’ rights, Walsh has been a longtime advocate of background checks and other safety measures. He said he would continue that fight now that he is joining CNN as the host of “The Hunt,” a new show about catching fugitives.

“I am the guy that has seen both sides of the issue,” Walsh told reporters Monday. “I own guns. I’m the father of a murdered child. I’ve done nothing but track violence in America since my son was murdered. We have a serious problem with guns in this country. And we refuse to address it. And the NRA solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous,” he said.

Actually, what’s ludicrous is your statement on the NRA’s position.

    “We have a serious problem with guns in this country.”
    What do you mean, “we”, White-man?

  2. Paul Kisling Says:

    Yeah, me thinks John has no idea just how serious people take guns in this country.

    If you think Anti gunners like yourself are serious John wait until you try and confiscate weapons from pro gunners.

    ALL of the comment over there at this time…..are pro 2nd amendment.

    If this is how he wants to start a new show…..he’s already in negative ratings.

  4. Veeshir Says:

    So…. how many 80 year old elementary school teachers are there in America?

  5. Rob Says:

    Never liked that guy. This does nothing to change my opinion.

  6. mikee Says:

    I wonder what it will take to change Mr. Walsh’s mind on 2nd Amendment rights & self defense considering the trauma he has experienced in his life.

    Has anyone some useful experience in changing the minds of people like Mr. Walsh on this subject, or is it hopeless?

    ” And we refuse to address it.”
    Sure we have.
    Your position has been weighed, measured, and found wanting, so many times that “we” have decided to maintain The Constitution.
    Has the now unemployed Mr. Morgan been returned to his place of birth yet?

  8. ASM826 Says:

    There are no 80 yer old grammar school teachers. But beyond that, what better weapon for 80 year old women than a firearm?

    If you take away the guns, all you have done is restore the natural advantage of the strong and predatory.

    I’ll be 80 next May and I’m still pretty quick on the trigger, be it handgun, rifle, shotgun or subgun. Jack.

    This POS is the original blood-dancer, and that blood was from his own child, who was abducted from a store. I was in South Fla at the time, and when they later found the boy’s head in a ditch, John went on camera and got his first taste of bloody fame. He’s been addicted to it ever since, and I don’t think he cares if it’s is positive or negative as long as he gets his high from it.

    He has used his son’s tragedy to play martyr all these years but now that blood is all dried up and it’s time for him to do his public jig in that of others’ innocent babies, and he will show the Sandy Hook Dancers and the Cali dad how it’s properly and professionally done.

  11. Bill Twist Says:

    He appears to be laboring under the misapprehension that we have a major problem with violence in this country. We don’t. Homicides are down by *HALF* over what they were 20 years ago, but an overwhelming majority of the people think the problem is as bad, or worse, than it was 20 years ago:

  12. Ron W Says:

    He supposedly champions victims by wanting them disarmed and kept that way??? That’s exactly how the criminal predators–and the government wants us.

  13. chris Says:

    His son was strangled – not shot.

    But he’ll be on CNN, so at least (almost) no one will see him.

    We need to make book on how long his show will last.

    It may be even less that Alec Baldwin’s show on MSNBC.
