I’m so sick of the blatant bias of the mainstream media against guns. Would it kill them to give a balanced viewpoint on the subject? Even once?
But no, that’s not the way that they play the game.
Take a recent ABC News story on the Virginia gun sanctuary movement. The facts are pretty simple and clear cut: Ralph Northam and company, using Michael Bloomberg’s money, rammed gun control down the throats of law abiding gun owners in Virginia who responded by saying, basically, “we intend to keep our Second Amendment rights.”
That’s it. Those are the basic facts.
Now, I’m not surprised that the news story interviewed different people and got the human viewpoint on the issue. After all, the stories of real people get viewer’s attention and get them interested. That doesn’t bother me. What infuriates me is the parts of the interviews that they chose to use for the news “story.” You can watch the story here:
Now, take a few minutes to think about this story. Re-watch it if you want. Pay attention to the information that they present and the information which they conveniently withhold.
For example, they bring in someone who had to deal with the fallout of the Virginia Tech shooting. Terrible shooting. Shouldn’t have happened. Someone should have been on campus with a gun other than the shooter to be able to shoot back. But that wasn’t the case. So, this person gives their emotional (not logical) appeal for gun control because of that horrible event.
Then, ABC News gives the viewpoint of a pro-gun student at Virginia Tech so that they can pretend to give both sides of the issue. What part of this interview do they share? They share that this guy wants to keep gun rights because he grew up with them and, basically, it’s tradition. Notice how they don’t mention the Second Amendment. Notice how they don’t mention gun violence statistics about how over 96% of mass shootings happen in “Gun Free Zones” like college campuses. Notice that ABC News doesn’t bring up any of the logical and rational reasons for gun rights which, no doubt, this guy brought up.
And, then, ABC News follows up with another Virginia Tech student who had attended Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School. Yes, the school in Parkland, Florida where that nutcase shot a bunch of kids (and the campus cop didn’t enter the school to stop the shooting). Of course, this kid is painted as the “rational” one who wants limitation on gun ownership but says that he doesn’t want to take all of our guns. To be fair, he may really think this, but gun control is a slippery slope. Give a little and the next person wants to take away more of your rights. They always say that they don’t want to take all of your guns until, eventually, you have a guy like Beto O’Rourke (yes, the “hell, yes, we’ll take your AR-15s” guy) who Joe Biden plans to put in charge of gun confiscation if Biden is elected President.
So, you have a situation that, as we’ve said, is pretty straightforward on the facts that a mainstream media outlet twists to make the Second Amendment supporters seem like backwoods simpletons and the gun control nuts seem like the rational and good people.
This is the kind of anti-gun media bias that the #VAGunRightsRebellion is dealing with in Virginia and that the rest of the world is seeing through their biased media’s reporting, too. We need to keep educating and campaigning, folks.
And since we desire to arm ourselves for, if no other reason, self protection and family protection, the MSM paints us all with the brush of crazed gun nutty killers. Pathetic, blatant lies that a good amount if folks will believe. Until, of course, some real crazed lunatic take-out one of their family members. Oh, then they’re more than willing to join the gun owning team. But, since they fought so hard to diminish our 2nd Ammendment rights they can’t get a gun. Truly sad if we allow this to happen.
I hope that this stupid crap that the dumbercraps are pushing comes back to haunt every damn one of them. The old saying–STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES, that is their motto. With this corovo19 going on all we can do is keep a loaded gun close by, it is starting to heat up. 2 women tried the old 1 goes to the door & 1 sits in the car while the one @ the door tries to get inside & then 2 men will show up, hidden somewhere. She called the law & 30 min. later they came to her home & said they will look into it, would NOT look @ the camera pictures she had. DO THE MATH GOOD PEOPLE THEY ARE GOING WILD.
“The right of self defense is the first law of nature. In most governments, it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty , if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.” – Henry St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s 1789 Commentaries on the Laws of England
Excellent Point, sir!
ABC, MSNBC,CBS, NBC & CNN ARE ALL JUST DAMN LIARS.
ONLY AN IGNORANT USEFUL IDIOT WOULD BELIEVE ANYTHING THEY PRESENT AS THE TRUTH.
I DO NOT WASTE MY TIME WATCHING ANY OF THEIR BULLSHIT LIES.
THEY ALL PROMOTE LIES LIKE WAS PRESENTED AGAINST TRUMP IN THE PHONY IMPEACHMENT HEARING.
I DO NOT NEED THE LEADERSHIP OF THESE SONS-OF-BITCHES AND THEIR OWNERS.
Just a comment from my computer magazine. Paraphrasing, the jellyfish has existed on this planet for over 200 million years without a brain, which explains the actions of some people.
But then, some people do achieve Darwin Awards…
If you are a anti-guns person please explain to me how you going to stay safe and protect yourself from a raping or a criminal? Now you claim you are intelligent enough to answer this. But just remember I ASKED YOU! Not someone else! Now all these guns shooting happen in place were there is a sign saying GUN FREE ZONE! Do you believe a CRIMINAL going to go away? Or be happy? I am also sure you didn’t learn anything about the CONSTITUTION LAWS in high school. Nothing about the beginning of this country. How British try to control the people with their laws and army! If they had success you would not be living here! Now you have these Democrat governor trying to control the people of their state! Can you see socialism control being put in place! Well since you VOTED for them. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM IN THIS COUNTRY! Don’t cry when you lose your freedom and liberty to SOCIALISM CONTROL!
Only a fool who wants to died will support a Democrat or RINOREPUBLICAN that are anti-guns and anti-america!
Those Demoncrats in power around the country are simultaneously releasing dangerous people from custody, not upholding laws and taking away the normal everyday citizen’s right to protect themselves and their property. And yes, there is often a racial component to this game as well. It fits right in with the world-wide pattern of efforts to undermine if not exterminate a certain ethnic group. The reader may fill in the blanks.
