NBC’s Smith Lectures: ‘Arms Race Has Been Lost’ to Villainous ‘Gun Lobby,’ ‘Defenders’

Closing out Friday’s NBC Nightly News, special correspondent Harry Smith surfaced to provide another emotion-laden, fear-fueling, and far-left commentary about the El Paso and Dayton shootings as evidence that “[t]he arms race has been lost” with common sense, decency, and safety losing out to those villainous “gun rights defends” and “the gun lobby.”

Much like CNN’s Brooke Baldwin hours earlier and The Washington Post would do days later with its sanctimonious special section on the nearly-1,200 killed in mass shootings over the last 54 years, Smith listed the dead from Parkland to two weekends ago to bolster his punditry and, while one life lost is far too many, instill fear in viewers that being a victim of a mass shooting could easily happen.
