Jim Treacher of the DC Trawler explained what happened:
Here’s footage that MSNBC has just released of Neil Heslin, whose son was murdered in Newtown, speaking at a public meeting on gun control. It’s presented with the headline, “Emotional father of Sandy Hook victim heckled by gun nuts”:
You can watch the MSNBC video at the Caller. YouTube has many other examples of ObamaMedia wannabes who posted their own versions of the video edited in a similarly deceptive manner. Here’s one of the sloppier ones.
Telegraph TV got into the act, as well.
Neil Heslin, whose six-year-old son Jesse was killed in the Sandy Hook massacre is heckled by gun activists as he begs for tighter firearms restrictions.
The unedited clip tells a completely different story – one that is actually of no use to the gun grabbing community.
He wasn’t heckled AT ALL, as Treacher and everyone else on the planet who has seen the complete video, can see:
He asked the question and demanded an answer. There was complete silence. And only then, when he said that not one person could answer it — rather than remaining quiet out of respect for his feelings — did a few people answer it. You might not like their answer if you don’t like the Second Amendment, but that answer wasn’t unprompted. They were not heckling him.
How stupid do they think people are? Stupid enough to reelect Obama.
I guess I can see why they try this crap.

How desperate are the ObaMedia to get their fubar candidate reelected?
How about this. They resurrect a tired old meme about rich Republican candidates being “out of touch” with the average American because the modern supermarket electronic technology befuddle and “amaze” them. Andrea Mitchell wants us all to remember poppy Bush’s “supermarket scanners moment”…Now all these years later, we find that Mitt too, is “confused and frightened” by modern technology because these “out of touch” Republicans are just like SNL’s Caveman Lawyer or something.
But MSNBC “selectively edited” the tape to make it look like Romney was bringing up Wawa’s touchtone ordering system for no other reason than to express surprise.
Reacting angrily to selective editing by NBC that suggested racial animus by George Zimmerman, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell complained to Fox News’s Sean Hannity last night that NBC News was engaged in an “all-out falsehood.” The story in question was a March 27 Ron Allen report on NBC’s ‘Today’ in which 911 audio was edited to make it sound like George Zimmerman said “he looks black” immediately after saying “this guy looks like he’s up to no good.”
In the actual 911 audio, Zimmerman only described Martin’s race after the dispatcher asked, “And this guy: is he white, black, or Hispanic?” “To edit that out is so distorting,” Hannity complained. “Sean, it’s not distorting, it’s advancing a falsehood, it’s worse,” Bozell corrected the Fox News anchor.

On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer fretted over health care reform protesters legally carrying guns: “A man at a pro-health care reform rally…wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip….there are questions about whether this has racial overtones….white people showing up with guns.” Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black.
Following Brewer’s report, which occurred on the Morning Meeting program, host Dylan Ratigan and MSNBC pop culture analyst Toure discussed the supposed racism involved in the protests. Toure argued: “…there is tremendous anger in this country about government, the way government seems to be taking over the country, anger about a black person being president….we see these hate groups rising up and this is definitely part of that.” Ratigan agreed: “…then they get the variable of a black president on top of all these other things and that’s the move – the cherry on top, if you will, to the accumulated frustration for folks.”
Not only did Brewer, Ratigan, and Toure fail to point out the fact that the gun-toting protester that sparked the discussion was black, but the video footage shown of that protester was so edited, that it was impossible to see that he was black. The man appeared at a health care rally outside of President Obama’s speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Phoenix, Arizona.
According to reports, Attorney General Eric Holder has begun the implementation of three gun control measures related to President Obama’s Jan. 16 executive orders.
These deal with information sharing, background checks, and name registries. Holder’s action on them appears to be part of a two pronged approach where he pushes certain measures behind the scenes while Congress considers other measures Obama suggested.
The first of these gun control measures would "expand access to information on gun permits to American Indian law enforcement agencies," the second would "allow law enforcement to access the FBI’s national criminal database to conduct background checks on people they’re transferring weapons to," and the third measure "would authorize the FBI to retain records on denied firearms transactions in a separate database for longer than 10 years."
The last proposal is especially irksome, as it increases the amount of time the government can hold on to information acquired through certain background checks. In this way, it allows the creation of a de facto registry of people who have tried unsuccessfully to buy guns, and it’s just common sense that this information could easily be misused.
And this is all made more troubling by the fact that Holder "[concedes] that the impact of [these measures] is unknown at this point," i.e., they may not even work. Therefore, in the end, these various gun control measures may simply be what we have all feared from the start–just another futile exercise in piling more restrictive regulations on law-abiding citizens.
President Obama and his team, which includes the mainstream media, are focused on confiscating our guns and controlling us.
