MSNBC doctors another video

By: DrJohn





The video was seized upon by the left:

Neil Heslin, Father Of Newtown Victim, Heckled By Pro-Gun Activists(VIDEO, PHOTOS)

screams the Huffington Post


Neil Heslin, the father of a 6-year-old boy who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, stoically faced down pro-gun activists last night.

More than 1,000 people attended a hearing before the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Monday to share their views on gun control, USA Today reported. Among them was Heslin, who held a large framed picture of himself and his son Jesse as he urged officials to consider strengthening gun laws in Connecticut.

But as he gave his emotional testimony, pleading with lawmakers to improve mental health options and to ban assault weapons like the one Adam Lanza used to murder his child and 25 other people, his speech was interrupted by dozens of audience members, The Connecticut Post reported.

“I still can’t see why any civilian, anybody in this room in fact, needs weapons of that sort. You’re not going to use them for hunting, even for home protection,” Heslin said.

Pro-gun activists responded by calling out: “Second Amendment!”

There’s just one problem. It didn’t happen


He wasn’t heckled. He asked the question and demanded an answer. There was complete silence. And only then, when he said that not one person could answer it — rather than remaining quiet out of respect for his feelings — did a few people answer it. You might not like their answer if you don’t like the Second Amendment, but that answer wasn’t unprompted. They were not heckling him.

There's already an open thread on this topic and yes, the right wingers did show their true disgusting selves by cutting off the grieving father with far right BS.

As shown to you SO many times, you racist pig.. when listening to the ENTIRE UNEDITED AUDIO AND VIDEO.. there was no cutting off and no 'heckling'... unless you consider a LONG pause heckling and some slight response when the person asked his question to the audience a second time...

Go back to your black panther party

Yet the facts are different... it sounds like heckling in the EDITED video, which was the goal of BSNBC.. it fits their agenda, like it fits yours, you racist pig dog

Sorta depends upon your definition of heckling, doesn't it?

At MSNBC land the home of Lawrence O'Donnell,Chris Mathews,Rachel Madow and the rest they call this journalism.....

Connecticut already has tough gun laws....
How can we guarantee something like this never happens again.

Destroy all guns.
Ban all weapon manufacturers,Lock up any individual who doesn't have an altar at home built to honor Obama.Assign a designated government official to shadow every American citizen 24/7...

The lady purchased these weapons legally.
She had a son who was unstable.
She didn't secure these weapons.

End of story.

Did MSNBC Manipulate Sandy Hook Father ?Heckling? Video? [Videos]

In the unedited version.. there is a long pause.. because (IMHO) most thought it to be a rhetorical question.. then he asks A SECOND TIME, looking toward the gallery, and people spoke up to respond... rightly or wrongly...

It was not heckling

The point of town meetings is for people to voice their opinions. If the man didn't want anyone to disagree with him, he shouldn't have spoken up. this episode is just another example of leftists of employing their favorite tactic of using so designated victim to promote their propaganda. Leftists would have us believe that we aren't allowed to dispute what such people say. Only fools buy it.
