Los Angeles TV station uses footage of belt-fed, full-auto rifles in its story about CEOs wanting gun control

As Twitchy reported earlier Thursday, 145 CEOs from companies such as Uber, Levi Strauss, AirBnB, Yelp, and Dick’s Sporting Goods signed onto a letter demanding that Senate do something about gun violence and mass shootings.


KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles did a segment on the letter Thursday, featuring consumer columnist David Lazarus, who seemed pretty excited about the idea. He also tweeted this Thursday, if it gives you a better idea of where he’s coming from:

We’ve got a better one: Imagine if journalists reporting on guns knew what they were talking about? Democrats calling for mandatory buybacks and confiscation leaving themselves some breathing room, saying they’re only going after “assault weapons” and “weapons of war” — like AR-15s.

So it was troubling to one viewer to hear Lazarus report on gun control while the TV station broadcast slowed-down footage of fully-automatic rifles, which certainly aren’t tricked-out AR-15s and are for all intents and purposes illegal to own.


And voila, your average viewer who knows nothing about guns now thinks that Beto O’Rourke is going to confiscate everyone’s machine guns.

KTLA should have gone all out and aired footage of the AR-15 with the chainsaw bayonet attachment. Firing full-auto.
