A public hearing was held in
Hartford, Connecticut this week on guncontrol and among the
witnesses was the father of one of the victims of the mass shooting
at Sandy Hook elementary.
Some media outlets, most prominently
MSNBC, reported he was heckled, even offering video to
corroborate.  However, the clip was
highly edited and the full video of the testimony shows that
the father actually asked the audience “why anybody in this room
needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military
weapons* or high-capacity clips.” When no one answered, he used the
silence as a rhetorical tool, saying “not one person can answer
that question.” That’s when he got an answer from the audience.MSNBC previously got into hot water for deceptively editing the
911 call George Zimmerman placed when he was following Trayvon
Martin and is now “reviewing”
the video.The edited clip:The full video (relevant portion starts at 15:05):*Jacob Sullum on what
is an assault weapon
