How many times does a narrative have to be debunked before Rachel Maddow stops pushing it? Evidently, there’s no limit.

Tonight, the MSNBC host is once again “informing” her followers that Republican lawmakers want to essentially give guns to the mentally ill, or as she apparently sees them, the criminally insane:

Once again, we advise Maddow to stop hyperventilating long enough to read Cooke’s piece, get informed, and call off the dogs. But who are we kidding? That pot of ignorance isn’t gonna stir itself!
