[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at CBS Mornings on Wednesday reacted to the tragic mass killing in Uvalde, Texas by dismissing the Second Amendment as for “muskets” and by lobbying for gun control via a Joe Biden executive order. Co-host Gayle King lectured Texas Republican Congressman Tony Gonzales, chiding him for not supporting background checks (which don’t appear they would have stopped the Uvalde killer). Speaking of the Second Amendment, she dismissed, “I keep thinking when the Founding Fathers wrote that they were talking about muskets. I do not think if they were here today that they were thinking that people, kids, would have these assault rifles.”
