MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews went on a ghoulish tear Thursday night responding to the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting, bashing religion by telling Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) that “thoughts and prayers...should be outlawed” because it means that you don’t “give a damn” about the victims and that gun rights (as enshrined in the Constitution) do not come from God.
After he brought on Speier (who was shot fleeing Jonestown), Matthews pleaded for gun control concerning handguns like the “semiautomatic Glock, which goes beep, beep, beep, beep” that the gunman used. His reasoning? Get this. It’s because “[i]t doesn't take any intelligence or skill or talent, to use one of these guns to just kill people.”
