The national media just took on the Second Amendment on live TV and the Second Amendment won.
NBC correspondent Kerry Sanders tried to report from a Nevada gun ranch Tuesday but he couldn’t be heard above the sound of gunfire.
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders by saying he was covering the Cruz campaign. Sanders began talking about Nevada voters and gun rights, and then the bullets started flying.
“They’re saying that [BANG] a short distance away later today [BANG] Donald Trump [BANG] protect the Second Amendment.”
Sanders soldiered on for an entire minute, shifting to other topics.
“Talking about [BANG] Ted Cruz has fired his spokesman. We’re probably going to hear a lot more later [BANG].”
At the end of the segment, anchor Andrea Mitchell conceded, “Well, Kerry, I’m afraid we could not hear most of that because the fire power was a little too great. Sorry, we didn’t know you were going to be there today.”
A transcript of the segment provided by the Media Research Center is below:
