How Our Media Mislead on Guns
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/14/2013 6:03:35 AM

That could be a long post! For now, let’s just note one aspect of the news media’s biased gun coverage: the media frequently paint the National Rifle Association as a sinister, shadowy organization that exercises a mysterious power over legislation. Thus this Yahoo News headline on a Christian Science Monitor article:(Snip for graphic)This is silly. Obviously, Congress has the “muscle” to pass whatever it wants to, and neither “gun lobby”–either pro or con–has any power to dictate to Congress. What is happening is that the pro-gun control forces don’t have the votes

"GUN LOBBY"

Just as one does not need to be intelligent to be an elected official you do not need to be intelligent to be a journalist.

The most frightening aspect of the whole tragedy is the way in which the media was able to use hysterical and saturated coverage to whip up a mob of heavily mediated women and some men to take away part of our Bill of Rights. Our Bill of Rights are not negotiable. And guns are not any more evil than knives, or hammers, or cars, or subway trains, or any other instrumentalities that can be used by evil people for evil purposes.

All he said was that violating the 1st amendment would be more effective than violating the 2nd amendment. Neither is warranted.

Maybe if we had a two party system? Maybe if we had the old republican party? Maybe if we had a citizenry with common sense? Alas, we have none of the above.
I´m from MA and if I want to find ONE happy place to visit in this state, at this time, I go to Bass Pro Shop. What a bunch of happy hunters and fishermen and families. My husband and I go there just for the atmosphere. Since 11/2008, however, I always stop by the gun area to see people exercising their Second Amendment rights. Which, from the sounds of it, and with the republican party´s enthusiastic support, will shortly cease to exist.

What a bunch of morons!! If you are going to report or write about something you should at least have some basic knowlege. My M1 Garand uses clips. Everything else uses magazines.

They call semi-auto wheapons automatics, Really? Need a class three license for that.

Also, technically you could consider a double action revolver a semi-automatic. (one pull one shot) With a speed loader you can reload almost as fast as with a magazine.

Idiots, Morons and other names I could not say on this thread.

I wonder if anyone ever bothers to read a little history of this country. There was a time, not too far distant, that these mass killings and attacks on schools, etc. didn´t happen. And the people that were mentally deranged and were apt to do some acts like that were institutionalized. But something happened. The country became awash in tears about all the helpless and harmless people and fought to get them removed from said institutions and had the institutions closed down. Now we have those same people living on the streets (the homeless) and mentally deranged people walking around being a danger to any and all. But just try to bring up the true reasons and you will be called every vile name in the book. And some that aren´t. So, in truth, nothing that might work is going to bet done. That´s my two cents worth.

And while we´re at it, let´s call the Left what they are, and dispense with the description of what they are not.

What they are is "anti-2nd Amendment", or if you will, "anti-Constitution". What they are not is "pro gun-control".

Poster #8 nailed it.
Politicians like Øbama and Feinstein have nothing to lose. On the other hand, however, a whole bunch of democrat senators and representatives remember what happened in 2006 to those who were arm twisted into voting for Øbamacare. The last thing in the world they want to do is to go on the record as voting for gun restrictions. They are hoping beyond hope that Øbama will go it alone by using Executive fiat instead of making Congress vote on the issue. To them, this is even worse than having to vote on Øbamacare because this proposed legislation has zero percent chance of passing.

Contrary to the mental health expert (/sarcasm off) #3, who claims these are mentally ill people who think they are stopping a Martian invasion or something, these are actually evil Narcissists who can´t stand to discover the world doesn´t revolve around them.

They aren´t shooting water pistols at portraits on the wall. They are craftily gathering high-tech pistols, rifles, ammo and explosives, researching where the gun-free zones are, and amassing the largest possible list of deaths possible with the least possible resistance.

Media coverage definitely fuels it, as do gun-free zones, but gun possession by millions of random, anonymous passers-by would be a huge deterrent. And those not deterred would be quickly dispatched to h*ll.

And if one rare attacker was trying to kill kids by the dozens for some purely delusional purpose, it would still be best to kill him as quickly and efficiently as possible.

obama said he has executive power to more or less do whatever in the H-ll he wants to do. I´ve heard obama supporters called the under informed. I just wonder when will they ever put their brains in gear to learn or recall that is how adolph hitler, joe stalin or mao got so much power. I guess most of them never heard about the Jewish supporters of hitler in Germany of the 1930s.

Did not the KKK commit its dirty deeds in packs? A black man about to be lynched by a mob of sheetheads could probably use an AR-15 with some high capacity mags. If the left disgrees, they must be in favor of lynchings.

Did not Obama´s justice department give thousands of high capacity "assault" rifles to brutal drug gangs? A rancher in the southwest running into them would be much better off with an AR-15 and high cap mags as well. Again the lefties are in favor of more dead ranchers.

Feinstein wants what Hitler wanted. Schumer,
Bloomberg, George Clooney want what Stalin wanted. Chief Nazi propagandist Herman Goebbels wanted what all of our unionized TV news actor want. They all want to end private ownership of guns. What better way to introduce tyranny, dictatorship, than to remove guns from the hands of all war veterans, retired police and sheriffs, licensed hunters, Olympic quality championship marksmen, and millions of highly responsible individuals in every neighborhood of our sensible society?
It can never happen by law, and it will never happen by tyranny of Obama or any other dictator communist. The State wants
every American to be classified as a lawbreaker, subject to arbitrary arrest at any given, convenient time of day or night. That can never happen. And that is the ultimete goal of the State; to be able to arbitrarily classify ANYbody as a criminal.

#8 and also #20 are onto it...

Overreaching by a mean and arrogant president is going to backfire on him.
No pun intended.

FDR blew up his far vaster popularity post-1936 landslide by attempting to "pack"
the Supreme Court.

(Only Hitler´s idiocy in starting the war in 1939 enabled FDR to justify running again
for a third term.
Unemployment was 16 percent in Dec 1941, showing the "New Deal" did not solve
our problems, only delayed recovery.)

The results in the 2010 midterms will be repeated even worse for Obama´s party in
the 2014 midterms in reaction to the horrors of Obamacare and the economy, etc.
And the backfire on this gun-grab plan will add to the GOP´s turnout and votes.
You could almost guarantee a pro-conservative vote.
The GOP will then own the House and Senate by Jan. 2015.
&... We can take the WH in 2016.

For #19, I´d like to point out...
if Candy Crowley had married the late comic, her look-alike, Jon Candy...
today, she´d be... Candy Candy.
Serve that with the pork roast.

How about the 2013 Miss America to be, Miss New York: Mallory Hytes Hagan, who answered the Sandy Hook gun question with an answer that she, "didn´t believe in countering violence with violence" answer? Must have made Sam Champion the questioner all warm and fuzzy. She should run that viewpoint by parents who would have loved to have armed security at Sandy Hook. Their presence is a great deterrent.

"A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
These are round numbers, but close enough to teach a lesson:

*In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million "dissidents", unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
*China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
*Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
Take away the People´s guns and you leave them defenseless, whether you think it´s applicable or not. A defenseless citizenry invites tyranny. "

One or more of our greatest dangers as a Nation is that our so-called mass media has sold the United States down the drain for 17 (seventeen pieces of silver). The vast majority of them worship at their altars to karl marx and more hideous past tyrants and dictators. Our so-called media makes a habit of Lying, Cheating anf Stealing and have gotten so good at it that they can convince 51 percent of the American people to sell themselves into slavery or servitude.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J – An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world. The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards in baccarat. The technique gave him an unfair advantage on four occasions between April and October 2012, the casino asserted in its lawsuit. The

Microsoft finally killed off support for Windows XP this week, but the company decided to wax nostalgic about one of the most memorable parts of the operating system—that serene, hilly landscape that serves as the default XP desktop background. In a video released on the day the tech company officially ended support for the 13-year-old software, Microsoft interviewed the man who took the photograph, called “Bliss.” Charles O’Rear, a former National Geographic photographer, said he was driving through Napa Valley, just north of San Francisco, when he decided to stop and snap a photo of the idyllic countryside (on an

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Cancellation of Tomahawk Puts
American Navy On Perilous Course
New York Sun, by Steve Cohen    Original Article

The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

Are government statistics deteriorating?

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

He just wanted money,” Robert Curington, 72, told The Post during a two-day interview at his North Carolina home, detailing for the first time how Sharpton stepped into the FBI’s trap — and was then forced to become a federal informant. Sharpton has said he showed interest in the drug deal only because he feared the undercover agent was

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been
