After Florida Massacre, NRA Puts Out Video Claiming The ‘Mainstream Media Love Mass Shootings’

No chill…none whatsoever.

Second Amendment activist Colion Noir put out a video with NRATV last night in which he flat out declared that the mainstream media craves mass shootings and killing sprees which give them a chance to call for gun control. This comes while the national is still reeling from the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and amidst calls for a new national conversation on gun control.

Noir insisted that he isn’t accusing the media of wishing for the deaths of innocents, but he continued that they’ve got a real interest in horrific massacres.

“The mainstream media love mass shootings. I’m going to say it again; the mainstream media love mass shootings…The dirty secret is mass shootings have become their Game of Thrones, their House of Cards, their Seinfeld, and their Friends all wrapped into one, and whenever they get one, they wring out every last episode they can to juice their ratings and push their agenda, because tragedy is their business model.”

Noir goes on to say that the media forces shooting survivors to become part of their anti-gun production, and he also accused the media of glorifying shooters to the point that they inspire others to go on their own rampage.

“You, the mainstream media, just put out the casting call for the next mass shooter.”

Noir’s sentiment was echoed by Dana Loesch, a fellow NRA spokeswoman who came off of her tough night on CNN’s Parkland shooting town hall to give a speech at CPAC:
