Shep Smith On Lukewarm Gun
Control Support: ‘If We Stuck
With The Polls, We’d Have Had
Slavery A Lot Longer’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2013 10:08:06 AM

In a conversation with The Hill editor A.B. Stoddard, Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith expressed his frustration with the lack of demand among lawmakers in Washington for new gun control measures. Stoddard observed that there is no consensus in public opinion polling data on gun control, and even less consensus among lawmakers on what new measures to adopt. Smith countered by insisting that had America’s lawmakers relied on polling data alone, “we’d have had slavery a lot longer than we did.” (Snip) Smith noted that President Barack Obama made some promises during the campaign which he must

The moron Shemp goes off the rails again. His snarky irrelevant comments are getting really old. He must have forgotten he has a "news" show. s/o

Smith should be removed from the job.
I am offended by his stupid comments, and this is not the first time.
He makes a mockery of Fair and Balanced.
Boycott his sponsors.

Shep just argued against his own position. Yes, many Constitutional guarantees would not be enforced if subjected to popular vote including perhaps slavery at the time enforcement of the Second Amendment today. It is the difference between rule of law and rule by men. Of course Shep is such a dull knife.

That statement is completely false and has nothing to do with gun control logic.
There were more people living in non slave states than slave states. There were many more people than did not own slaves than people than owned them.
If there had been a vote to end slavery, it would have ended years before it did!
The end of slavery comparison is a Red Herring argument. There is only one reason government wants to take guns away from the general population, and it has nothing to do with our safety.

I quit watching Shep a long time ago. And I am not at all sure that polling the original 13 colonies around the time the constitution was written would have found the majority supporting slavery. The anti-slavery movement was rolling pretty strong around the (non-Islamic) world by that time.

Ya, except, slavery was unconstitutional.

AND, this can be argued both ways.

Still, the premise is incorrect.

Life, liberty and property are denied where slavery is permitted.

If he understood the constitution, he wouldn´t have made this silly conclusion.

If so, how did Lincoln get elected? Why didn´t the popular majority elect someone who would have preserved the right to own slaves? The Bill of Rights, by the way, is intended to preserve the rights of the minority as well as the minority, so the popular sentiment in favor (or opposed) to gun ownership is irrelevant.

Who wanted to keep the slaves on the plantation? It was democrats that were involved in the Klu Klux Klan. (Robert Bird, (D) senator was in the KKK)It was George Wallace (D)that stood on the steps of a school and tried to keep black students out.
It was Spain that brought the slaves here and blacks, (their own people) in Africa that captured them and turned them over to the Slave traders.
Yet it is taxpayers today whose money went for reparations to people who thought they deserved it because their ancestors were slaves. Maybe they should have gone to Africa to make their homes if it means so much to them. I´m sure their futures would be much more secure than they are here in the USA,

There was a time probably over 10 years ago when Smith just read the news and did a pretty good job of it. Then he got full of himself and began to think he is smarter than he is.

I demand an apology for such a ridiculous remark.

Shepard Smith is just one of Fox´s token liberls along with Beckel,Jerry Rivers, and now that socialist of socialists Kucinich. That´s how Fox can make the claim "Fair and Balanced" and have it acually be true. Smith is one of those people who sticks their wet finger in the air and decides then which way to go on an issue. He is obviously incapable of taking a true, genuine, principled position on much if anything. Truly spineless.

Shep lost me with his over the top whining and finger pointing at Bush during Katrina. Maybe he should interview Ray Nagin to get the real story. A good reading of the
Constitution and Federalist Papers might just make him a journalist instead of a hack.

He plays for ´The Other Team´ according to some here. Regardless, he should be recused from ´reporting´ on second amendment stories on Fox, as a starting point.

If there was a nonpropaganda media channel, someone could force this cretin to defend his call for more robbery, rape and murder. Surely this dullard understands that disarming innocent, responsible, citizens will result in more of them being harmed. Like himself and everyone he works with. Does he really think disarming everyone but the criminal element will make people like him safer? If so, PROVE it and drop security for himself, his home and all of his coworkers. Let´s sort this out, mouthpiece.

The new form of slavery started under Lyndon Johnson and continues today.
The slaves of today are totally dependent on government..they are incapable of feeding themselves and their children without government help. Ditto housing themselves, ditto transporting themselves, paying their heating bills or thinking for themselves..and they are incapable of leaving the plantation because they have no skills to help them become independent, as their role models are their mothers and grandmothers who are also dependent on government.. THIS in spite of Head Start, public schools and AA to get to college.
Yes, there are some who know 2+2=4, but they don´t know how to get there.
We would be doing them a favor by cutting off welfare and forcing them to live independently..or be hungry.
So if Shep is against slavery, he should be faulting the government on a daily basis.
In the meantime, while wolf cubs roam the streets with their illegal guns, I will damn sure keep my legal guns to protect me and mine.
14% of our total population is draining the life blood out of this Country.

Well we can all see where all the propagandist are going this term.

Polls mean nothing, peon oppinion mean nothing, law means nothing and common sense is worthless when stacked against the liberal agenda and the "Chicago Jesus" ideas.

The "Chicago Jesus" must be obeyed or you are all racist that would bring back slavery because only the Incompetent and corrupt can provide the "Imperial Edicts" from the Whte House.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
