Andrea Mitchell recently let the mask slip on the air. Remember that old leftist phrase, never let a crisis go to waste? That’s exactly how Andrea and many on the left feel about gun control right now. They are trying to take advantage of the moment to push their agenda.

Andrea Mitchell Fears ‘Crisis Will Pass’ Without Gun Restrictions
In an interview with anti-gun Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy on her Wednesday show, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell pressed the Democrat from the left and demanded stronger action on gun control. She fretted that soon “this crisis will pass” without gun rights being restricted.
“Connecticut Democratic Senator Chris Murphy is co-sponsoring a bipartisan bill to enforce the National Instant Criminal Background Check System,” Mitchell explained as she introduced the liberal lawmaker. While praising him for having “been a leader on this march [for gun control] since Newtown,” she worried that the broadly-supported legislation didn’t go far enough: “But at this time, is that good enough? Chuck Schumer, the leader of the caucus, said that your bill is not enough.”
“What is your political strategy? Because you could pass this bipartisan bill and, you know, a lot of people could pat themselves on the back, the President and the Republican caucus and others in the Democratic caucus who really don’t oppose – don’t support stronger gun restrictions. And this crisis will pass. So how does this work for you?”
