    Default Gun Hating Little House on the Prairie Star Running for Congress

    Gun Hating Little House on the Prairie Star Running for Congress

    Read the full story here:

    As a member of Generation X, I have a very clear memory of 1970’s TV shows. In the days before cable, our choices were limited but the quality of many shows was much higher.

    Every week, my entire family would sit down together to watch certain programs and one of them was Little House on the Prairie, which was based on a classic series of books by real life settler Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    You’ve probably heard of the show and the books, but you may not have heard that Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura Ingalls on TV, is running for congress in Michigan.

    From the Detroit Free Press:

    Melissa Gilbert running for Congress

    Actress Melissa Gilbert, best known for her portrayal of Laura Ingalls Wilder on NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” in the 1970s and ‘80s, said Monday she will run for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District — though her campaign will have to tamp down questions about a tax bill.

    Gilbert, who lives in Livingston County with her husband, actor Timothy Busfield, is running as a Democrat in a district that has been a Republican stronghold in recent elections: U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, won the race to replace former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Howell, last year, beating Democrat Eric Schertzing, 54%-42%.

    Here’s the disappointing part: Gilbert has a rather typically progressive view on guns, the Second Amendment and the National Rifle Association.

    Shortly after a shooting in Santa Monica in 2013, Gilbert let her anti-gun vitriol fly on Twitter.

    Here’s what she said, via Twitchy:

    @NRA Because of you, these shootings continue unchecked and un stopped. I hold u responsible in part for every gun death in this country.

    @tbrasuell @NRA ur lobbyists have done nothing but pressure our leaders 2 do nothing 2 change status quo. U keep putting guns in ppls hands.

    The drafters if the constitution and bill of rights wrote those documents when we all used guns to eat. When we were at war on our own soil.

    Here’s a question for Ms. Gilbert: Did the drafters if the Constitution and Bill of Rights have television or Twitter in mind when they wrote the First Amendment?

    Perhaps Gilbert should take a lesson from the real Laura Ingalls Wilder (emphasis is mine):

    The Little House books are replete with descriptions — some in exhaustive, “how-to” levels of detail — of the ways in which simple people with few resources manage to provide for themselves a broad array of both necessities and luxuries…

    Across the series, a reader learns how to feed himself off the land. He is told how one hunts, kills, and skins a deer; how to smoke and preserve meat in a hollowed-out tree; how to butcher a hog and turn it into ribs, hams, head cheese, and a toy balloon (out of the pig’s bladder)…

    Clothing, shelter, medicine, and a slew of other necessities are supplied by the families’ own hands. Through Wilder’s descriptions, a reader learns how to melt lead to mold bullets and clean and care for a gun.

    We have to give the left a few points for consistency.

    They never stop pushing greater gun control.

    hmm if the NRA is responsible for every gun death I guess that means i'm 1/5,000,000th part responsible? Strange, because I've never fired a shot at anything except paper and steel.

    What a loser (terrible grammar too...)

    shouldn't she get busy figuring out how to pay off her i.r.s. debt, rather than believing she has a clue what is good for everyone other than her?
