Karl Rove Told to ‘Stop Scaring People’ on ABC! (Video)

By AATTP Contributor, Han Chimpson

During the airing of ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, March 24th, Karl Rove attempted to engage in his usual fear-mongering tactics during a discussion over gun control, and was quickly called out on it by host Terry Moran.

Rove had made the claim that the U.S. government would maintain a “registry if a grandfather wants to give a treasured shotgun to his grandson or granddaughter” and keep a “national registry of gun sales and gun purchases and gun owners.” Even though creating a national registry is prohibited by federal law.

Moran interrupted Rove and went after him for creating fear and paranoia in order to drum up opposition to proposals in Congress that would require private sellers to maintain records of the background checks they perform.

Here is how the exchange unfolded:

MORAN: Karl — stop scaring people, you’re scaring people with this Orwellian sense, that black helicopters and the government are going to confiscate Americans’ guns. That kind of paranoia fuels…

ROVE: Will all due respect, it’s not paranoia.

MORAN: Who is going to confiscate all of the guns?

ROVE: People have a fear of this. Why do it? Why do you need it? …

MORAN: The result of this is that all the votes that have been taken since Newtown have weakened gun control.

Please give it a watch. The exchange begins at around the 2:15 mark of the below video.

    I don’t like Karl Rove, but it was interesting that the image black helicopters was brought up as some kind of Orwellian nightmare scenario.

    Well, what do you know? Black helicopters firing blanks on full auto over American cities. Proof! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0Xu0kNivjc



    Who is scaring who?

    #1. Universal back ground checks, why? Do you want felons to have guns? Do you want mentally incompetent people to have guns? If so, WHY?
    #2. Report all sales or thefts of guns or face fiduciary penalties including prison for crimes committed by guns not reported stolen or sold.
    #3. If you are against these are you a criminal? DO you sell weapons to criminals? Then claim themselves ignorant of how guns get into criminal hands? There is no defense for not wanting these controls there is no logic to defeating them. Only criminal.

    @Carl: did you read the post ???? All votes since Newtown have _weakened_ existing gun control law — why do you think that is?

    I can honestly say I have NEVER agreed with anything Karl Rove has to say because I despise him for so many reasons but I have to agree with him on this. Americans SHOULD be fearful of the government coming and taking their guns. Did anybody pay attention to what happened in New Orleans a few years ago????? Obviously not! People need to wake up quick and realize what is happening in this country before it is too late. No fear tactics from me, just the reality of a country and a government that is out of control. The USA is in deep and the American people have no idea what is coming their way.

    Karl stating that he doesn’t have a criminal record is pretty specious. He might not be convicted, but he’s certainly a criminal.
