Morning Joe Edits Out Senator’s Town Hall Response to Gun Control Supporters

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday, footage of Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R-NH) town hall was carefully edited to take away the Senator’s rational explanations for why she opposes background checks, while leaving in full the emotional appeals from gun control proponents attending the Monday event.

The segment opened by showing Erica Lafferty, daughter of the slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal, speaking to Ayotte at the town hall. Lafferty said Ayotte had opposed background checks because they would hurt gun store owners in New Hampshire, and then she asked why the thought of “my mother being gunned down in the halls of the elementary school isn’t as important as that.”

Instead of explaining that background checks had nothing to do with the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, the Morning Joe crew showed video of Lafferty storming out of the town hall in protest–after she didn’t get the answer she wanted.
