Guns And The Media Lies That Turn Everyday People Into Defenseless Criminal Targets

Weekend, February 25-26, 2017 — It is incomprehensible why the prideful media that dignifies itself as the nation’s truth-tellers continually allows itself to painlessly get away with the political incorrectness of reporting the news accurately and honestly. Instead, it sloppily accepts what one leading fourth estate leader reports as fact and ships it out on a daily basis to its informationally indulgent readers. Such passivity would never have been tolerated in old-school journalism classes.  Yet, today, some university or college journalism courses, including unverifiable itinerant operations of subterfuge, are allowed to post advertising announcing “genuine” credentials upon completion of the course.  Boiled down together, it’s “journalism” reportage is responsible for the greatest accumulation of deceitful accreditation in a generation.

Not since George Washington confessed to cutting down a cherry tree have the buglers of bulletins admitted its abundance of editorial sins. When it comes to guns, the entrenched establishment media is egregiously guilty of padding the evidence before their very eyes in favor of using the information at hand for ideological advantage. Thus gun control becomes gun safety and murder becomes gun violence. Neither becomes honest reality.

Worse yet, the regulatory mess in state house capitols as with bureaucratic Washington DC, victimizes parts of the public masses by lumping everyone labeled this or that as absolute: if you are under extreme stress, afflicted with volleys of headaches, short-tempered or confusingly erratic, you are tabbed mentally deficient and subject to demented, bodily or artificial incarceration which includes becoming powerless to reach out to others for legal or moral defense.

For this weekend, we have elected to focus in on the wretched media, so long accepted as the purveyors of honest information but in these ever so spaceless cyber times seen only as sellers to the preconditioned ill-informed.  That media, out of deference to other types such as advocacy media which includes this publication, has become the guardians of not freedom – of the press or anything else – but of an imprisoned audience starving for truth, honesty and straight talk, as we will see on this edition of….

The Truth About Mental Illness and Guns 7:47 min.

In the wake of any mass shooting, there’s a predictable and justified burst of public outrage and sorrow followed by a series of “do something now” legislative proposals meant to prevent similar tragedies from ever occurring again. Depending on the political leanings of the politician or media figure offering the solution, the proposal often rests upon one of these twin assumptions: We must rid the world of the wrong kinds of weapons (i.e., “assault weapons”), or, we must keep guns away from the wrong kinds of people (i.e., “crazy people”).

We Took A Mental Patient To Buy A Gun—Here’s What Happened 3:59 min.

With gun violence constantly in the news, mental illness and firearms are back in the national conversation. But how easy is it for someone with a history of mental illness to get a gun?

The Hidden Truth About Gun Background Checks – Exposed by NRA 4:37 min.

Here’s what the media won’t tell you. The NRA has fought for 20 years to put the records of those adjudicated mentally incompetent into the National Instant Check System. And until the politicians demand that they are submitted, killers who are legally prohibited from owning firearms will walk into gun stores and pass every background check they take.

Denzel Washington Blasts the Media on Dishonesty and “Fake News” 1:06 min.

Emotional Speech from Sandy Hook Victim’s Dad: “The Problem is not Gun Laws” 10:51 min.

Mark Mattioli, whose six-year-old son James perished inside of the school, testified that a plethora of new gun laws isn’t the answer and that, instead, personal responsibility, accountability and civility are the best path forward. He made his comments over four years ago as intense debate surrounding gun control and the causal factors behind the shooting continue to be at the forefront of public discussion.

Trying to Make Everyone Gun Crazy

SHELBY MURDOC | February 15, 2017 — President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress have not been wasting any time trying to un-do some of the damage done during the Obama administration. Using the Congressional Review Act, which allows for a fast-track repeal of regulations by a simple majority, agency rules can be voided and the agency is barred from implementing a new regulation that is “substantially the same.”

One of the most significant repeals so far has been the cancellation of a regulation that barred Social Security recipients who could not manage their own financial affairs from owning firearms. The Social Security Administration rule required the forwarding of names of those recipients who needed a representative to manage their finances to the criminal background check system. About 75,000 Social Security recipients were expected to meet the criteria and be subject to what the National Rifle Association called a “back-door gun grab.” [read more]

Stretching the Range for Long Range Shooting

STEVE COMUS | February 1, 2017 — Technology and the manufacturing advances it affords are changing the face of Gundom. It is now routine to be able to produce extremely accurate rifles that shoot extremely effective bullets. That’s great. As this evolutionary process goes forward, we are faced with reevaluating a few things. Specifically long-range hunting. There is long-range shooting and then there is long-range hunting. They are decidedly different in many respects.  [read more]

We Can’t Say We Weren’t Warned

BOB ROGERS | February 1, 2017 — San Bernardino may come back to haunt us. The result was not just 14 innocents killed and two jihadists eliminated. The aftermath became a tornado of new gun restrictions that wouldn’t have stopped the terrorists anyway, and would only make life more difficult for honest, responsible California gun owners.

What the attack did was to implant in the minds of the unarmed that next time—and there’s always a next time—they might be part of an inclusive target and the only way to food and comfort is to accept what other equally uninformed people who write laws condemning self-protection say will let them sleep better at night.  [read more]
