    After being called out for his disastrously-flawed Late Night Monologue rant about guns / gun legislation, Kimmel doubled down on his ignorance and emotion-fueled rhetoric, telling 'gun nuts' that they are partially to blame for refusing to allow Liberals to strip them of their 2nd Amendment rights, which would not have prevented the Vegas attack and would not prevent future attacks.

    Jimmy Kimmel Doubles Down on Gun 'Nuts': 'You Bear Some Responsibility'

    "Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel continued to attack gun rights advocates during Tuesday night’s monologue of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, defending the deceptive gun control rant he issued in tears one night earlier and mocked gun “nuts” who called him out on it.

    The greater criticism for Kimmel rests on the nature of his Monday night comments; his misleading and, in some cases, blatantly false claims about gun laws, certain types of firearms, and Second Amendment legislation pending before Congress.

    The comic offered no apology for his deception during his Tuesday night monologue, nor did he rectify his failure to cry over those killed in gun-controlled Chicago —
    nearly 59 people each month — the way he cried over those killed in gun-friendly Nevada. Instead, he doubled down appealing to his First Amendment right to say what he said and mocking those who called him out on it."

    Yesterday several media outlets reported that Kimmel had received help writing his monologue from D-Schumer, who provided Kimmel with some gun 'facts' and figures. Well, that explains, in part, why his Monologue rant was so flawed and factually inaccurate...

    :p

    /----/ From Rush's website: Chart of the day: More guns, less gun violence between 1993 and 2013 - AEI
    You want to hear another little fact? AEI, American Enterprise Institute, has a chart here that records American gun ownership and the American murder rate with guns since 1994. Since 1994, gun ownership has increased. Privately owned firearms has increased by 56%. The gun homicide rate has declined since 1994 by 49%, meaning more guns does not mean more murder. More guns has meant less murder. Again, since 1994 the number of privately owned firearms has gone up 56%. I don’t have total numbers here, but it doesn’t matter for the purposes of this. In that same period sense 1994, gun homicide rate annually has declined 49%, it’s almost equal.

    Nothing could be of less importance than the thoughts of Jimmy Kimmel.

    Liberals still get their talking points from comedians.

    Jimmy Kimmel is just another left wing activist posing as a comedian! He, along with his fellow left wingers will never understand that the only thing that can stop a crazy person with a gun, is either a law enforcement officer, or a law abiding citizen who is armed! I miss Johnny Carson. he was a WWII vet and patriot and very funny and original. You didn't know what his politics were though, because he never went there. I stopped watching the late night shows when Jay Leno retired. The three morons on ABC, NBC & CBS are nothing more than political activist's! I will never by a ticket or watch a show where I am subjected to listening to someone political views, what ever they may be!

    The media bears the most responsibility...getting the shooters off the hook by blaming society [an old commie trick] and then elevating these guys to hero/martyr/lone wolf status is what motivates these types of tragedies, this type of coverage needs government oversight

    He rightfully lays the responsibility for these massacres where it belongs, at the feet of the gun cult in the US. The NRA, the gun manufacturers, the Republican Party. The NRA ignores the wishes of it's own members who overwhelmingly support things like detailed background checks and keeping guns out of the hands of mentally ill people.

    But the gun cult derives money and political power from keeping these weapons in the hands of the very people that shouldn't have them. And the cult constructs ever more elaborate lies to keep the money flowing. The latest is 'silencers on guns protect children's hearing'. So up until now all the children of gun owners have been deaf?

    It is a cult of just disgusting human beings.
