CNN: Dan Rather, Piers Morgan, And Gun Control

It seems the only place to find this video is on sites by gun rights advocates – instead of sites by those interested in gun control.

In the video, Rather apparently sent shock waves through the pro-gun community by saying “There’s no excuse to have an assault weapon.”

Video from 2013.

Dan Rather / Brian Stelter Interview

Brian Stelter talks with Dan Rather about Iraq and Syria.

Dan Rather worked at CBS News for 44 years.

Update:  oddly, the first Rather / Stelter interview seems to have disappeared from YouTube.

The Huffington Post wrote an article about it:

Dan Rather issued a stern warning Sunday on CNN to pundits who have beating the drums for war lately: if you aren’t willing to send your kid to war, just stop talking.

“My first question to anyone who is on television saying, “We have to get tough, we need to put boots on the ground and we need to go to war in one of these places” is, I will hear you out if you tell me you are prepared to send your son, your daughter, your grandson, your granddaughter to that war of which you are beating the drums,” Rather continued. “If you aren’t, I have no patience with you, and don’t even talk to me.”

OK, Fine. finds it unusual that several copies of this video have disappeared from the internet.
