At USA Today, Ricochet editor Jon Gabriel writes that the American people are angry about the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida. They are enraged by the failings of the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff's Office in stopping the killings. But progressive activists and mainstream media have zeroed in on the members of the NRA, who had nothing to do with those failures. Eliminating discounts for NRA members is taking sides in a culture war. It's bad for business and bad for the country. Jon says we will end up with blue companies and red companies. Everything will be divided along political lines. Defending a constitutional right shouldn't be controversial. Originally aired on Cam & Co 02/27/18.
Jon and Stephen welcome Stephen Gutowski of the Washington Free Beacon to discuss the chances of gun legislation after the massacre in Parkland, then talk about the latest indictments from the Mueller investigation. (Don’t forget to stay for the Beavis and Butthead impersonations.)
