Willie Geist: ‘More Laws’ Won’t Stop Bad Guys from Getting Guns

You can make more laws and still wouldn’t capture the people, the criminal element that wants to get his hands on a gun’

Willie Geist: More Laws Won't Stop Bad Guys from Getting Guns (NewsBusters)

A week ago, we noted that—negating Nicolle Wallace's notion that the woman who aided the New York prison break shouldn't do any time herself—Willie Geist observed "you can't help convicted murderers escape from jail."  An NB reader remarked: "I get the sense that Willie Geist is a good guy trapped inside the leftwing matrix."

Far be it from us to cause workplace problems for Willie by praising him too much, but Geist was at it again on today's Morning Joe, this time making some common sense remarks on gun control.  After Eugene Robinson praised Australia's "very serious" gun control laws, Willie first cut through the haze, noting that "Australia, to be clear, confiscated guns." He went on to make this observation—as remarkable for its truth as it is for his rarity in the MSM—"there are so many laws out there, and you can make more laws and still wouldn't capture the people, the criminal element, that wants to get his hands on a gun." -
