WASHINGTON FREE BEACON October 18, 2017 – A media watchdog group released a report on Monday that found the three major broadcast networks presented coverage in favor of new gun-control measures nearly 5 times as often as they presented coverage in favor of gun rights during the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting. 

Nat’l – Media – After Las Vegas, Gun Modification Videos Banned By YouTube

NEWSWEEK.COM October 9, 2017 – YouTube has banned and removed some video tutorials that show users how to modify guns—including ones that provide instructions for making semiautomatic rifles fire nearly as quickly as fully automatic ones, a tactic used in the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas last week. The company said it had taken down some tutorial videos that featured a bump stock, a legal attachment to semiautomatic rifles that makes them fire…

Nat’l – Media – Smoking Gun Takes From the Media (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON October 9, 2017 – Reporters and political pundits this past week continued their long tradition of making fools of themselves when talking about guns and gun rights: the talking heads have gotten simple facts wrong about guns and gun laws, mocked gun owners, and openly advocated for gun control. During a panel on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender got the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act of 1986 completely…

NY – Media – Bret Stephens’ Fetishism for Gun Control

LIBERTY LAWSITE.ORG October 9, 2017 – Right after the Las Vegas massacre, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens demanded that the Second Amendment be repealed. Mr. Stephens recently left the Wall Street Journal’s conservative editorial page, where he had been a hawkish voice on foreign affairs, and this burst of constitutional punditry has led to accusations that he is pandering to his new audience. I doubt that this is fair. Certain prominent “conservative intellectuals”…

(NV – Media-) What a macho, gun-packing Instagram star did when he was caught in the Las Vegas shooting

WASHINGTON POST October 3, 2017 – Guns and women got Dan Bilzerian where he is today — the “King of Instagram,” with nearly 23 million followers, a mansion full of guns and a hot tub full of women. He lines his feed with photos of himself and women in the wilderness, playing with his arsenal of rifles, his biceps the size of their thighs. Bilzerian once trained to be a Navy SEAL, and while…

Nat’l – Media – Children Played With A Real Gun Longer, More Aggressively After Seeing Movie Showing Guns

FORBES.COM September 25, 2017 – Children played more aggressively and longer with a real gun they found and pulled the real gun’s trigger much more often after watching a film with gun violence, compared with children who watched the same film with the gun scenes edited out, a new study found. The findings resulted from a controlled experiment that two researchers at Ohio State University in Columbus conducted with 104…

Gun Violence Stats Altered by Washington Post: 23 “Children” Shot Daily

THE NEW AMERICAN.COM September 25, 2017 – In a wildly sensationalist screed published September 15, the Washington Post burnished its anti-gun agenda without regard to truth. In its “Children Under Fire” piece, the Post seemed to rely on emotional appeals in order to make its point: Youngsters are being shot at a terrible rate and something must be done! The reader is left to imagine just what must be done, but it’s likely to…

DC – Media – Washington Post Employs Deceptive Tactic on “Children” and Guns

NRA-ILA.ORG September 22, 2017 – The Washington Post has surpassed the Brady Campaign and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety to take a place alongside the New York Times as the premier anti-gun propagandists in the country. While those gun control groups have been known to pervert the facts to fit their agenda, a recent Post article and accompanying editorial go where even the most hardline gun control groups no longer tread.  

CA – Media – 5 Secrets You Learn When You’re A Gun Consultant For Movies

CRACKED.COM September 15, 2017 – It’s difficult to make a blockbuster action movie today without guns. And when a director or production company decides that Keanu Reeves’ hands look just plain weird without pistols in them, the filmmakers hire an armorer. Mike Tristano is one of the best in the business. He has more than 500 movie and TV credits to his name. He told us …  

Nat’l – Media – Rethinking news coverage of mass shootings in the age of gun violence

INTERNATIONAL JOURNALISTS NETWORK.ORG September 15, 2017 – The United States has a gun violence epidemic. Headline after headline provide the evidence. But at what point does our staunch adherence to journalistic norms and routines become journalistic negligence in perpetuating this epidemic? A recent study showed that 30 percent of mass killings were potentially inspired by previous mass killings and singled out sensational, detailed news media coverage as a possible factor for…

Nat’l – Media – Dana Milbank: NRA’s ‘Idea of Recreation’ Includes ‘Assault Guns’ and ‘Silencers’

BREITBART.COM September 12, 2017 – Washington Post (WaPo) opinion writer Dana Milbank claims the NRA’s “idea of recreation” includes “assault guns,” “armor piercing bullets,” and “silencers.” He writes ahead of a debate on the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2017, which contains the Hearing Protection Act, and intimates that an NRA goal is to allow “quail hunting with an M777 howitzer or grouse hunting with an FIM-92 Stinger missile…

MO – Media – Movie brings back ‘chilling memories’

SEDALIA DEMOCRAT.COM September 8, 2017 – Last weekend, Max and I saw an intense, harrowing movie: “Wind River.” If you like great storytelling, you should see it. Without getting into the story, part of the movie dealt with people who were fighting for their lives, shooting and reloading semi-automatic weapons. At that point, I had a hard time breathing. I don’t know if I have related the story about…

More Fake News On National Rifle Association And Race

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) September 7, 2017 – An anti-NRA feature story posted last weekend at salon.com is so devoid of logic and fact that it’s hard to even know where to begin in discussing it. Titled “6 gun groups that aren’t for white right-wingers,” the author, Kali Holloway, attempts to talk about some pro-gun groups that apparently aren’t “like” the National Rifle Association. Note first that Holloway is…

CA – Media – Editorial calls for banning open carrying of firearms at protests — this is why they’re wrong

THE BLAZE.COM August 23, 2017 – The violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, have brought about one issue: Should guns be allowed at rallies and protests? Images of people openly carrying firearms — on both sides of the political aisle — have some asking whether or not open carry laws are dangerous and could incite violence at political rallies. The Los Angeles Times on Wednesday published an editorial calling for a ban on…

DC – Media – How the N.R.A. Manipulates Gun Owners and the Media

THE NEW YORKER.COM August 11, 2017 – An axiom of digital video strategy nowadays is that different types of videos are better suited for different platforms. This particular segment (a Dana Loesch NRA video), it turned out, worked well for social media, attracting, as of late this week, a hundred and twenty-three thousand views on Facebook, along with fourteen hundred retweets and more than twenty-four hundred likes on Twitter. …

DC – Media – Why the NRA is going after the media

WASHINGTON POST August 4, 2017 – At the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, NRA head Wayne LaPierre gave a remarkable speech during which he offered up a vast, loosely aggregated opposition that was the new threat for gun owners to fear: “leftists,” anarchists, criminals and, of course, “national media machine. For the first time, we also face an enemy utterly dedicated to destroy not just our country, but also Western…

VA – Media – The Total Disconnect On Guns And Crime

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) July 24, 2017 – The horrendous attack on a GOP congressional baseball practice, which occurred just before deadline for this issue, taught me something about the anti-gun mindset that I guess I never truly understood before—and it was a startling revelation. Anti-gunners from gun-ban groups and within the so-called “mainstream” media apparently assumed that just because the attacker had targeted Republican congressmen, those same legislators would immediately…

DC – Media – NRA, eschewing talk of guns, ratchets up rhetoric (VIDEO)

FOX NEWS July 20, 2017 – Buoyed by soaring gun sales and a White House supportive of its efforts, the National Rifle Association has charted a new course in its messaging, employing the group’s sophisticated communications apparatus to attack liberal politicians and activist groups, as well as mainstream news outlets. When the Washington Post noted the pivot in an article headlined “NRA’s Dark New Video Talks Politics, Not Guns,” the group…
