BLAME GAME: ‘Modern Family’ Producer Blames NRA for VA Reporter Shootings Because…

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 10.45.02 AMYes, it’s always someone else’s fault and never the fault of the shooter.

In the wake of the heinous attack in which Vester Lee Flanagan II allegedly shot and killed reporter Allison Park and cameraman Adam Ward, ABC’s Modern Family executive producer Steve Levitan called for people to rally against the NRA.

At 9:33 a.m.—just hours after the attack took place—Levitan sent a tweet, which said, “There are only 4.5 million members of the NRA. We can dwarf them.” He included a link that takes readers to pages for Micheal Bloomberg-funded groups Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

A little over an hour later—at 10:51 a.m.—he sent another tweet, this one containing a link to comedian Jim Jefferies’s juxtaposition of gun rights in the U.S. versus gun control in Australia. Breitbart News previously reported that Jefferies emerged during the December Sydney hostage crisis to argue that gun control in Australia had worked because the gunman was only armed with a shotgun instead of “semi-automatic weapons and hand guns.”
