Post Newtown: Time To Just Ban Everything?

I came across this article over on Clash Daily written by Steve Pauwels yesterday.  In the article he criticizes the media’s harshly negative portrayal of guns and how they constantly and consistently leave out key details that don’t fit into that view.  Like how armed citizens often try to defend themselves and others during shootings.

I have a sample from the article below, but please, go give the entire article a read and share it with people you know.  We can’t let the media continue to brainwash people with the constant negative attention they’re giving guns.

“December’s other outbreaks of firearms carnage have, by comparison, been forgotten pretty quickly by the national press and commentariat.

In case you don’t know, three days preceding Sandy Hook’s slaughter of a score of pre-adolescents and handful of school personnel, an amply armed Oregon man walked into a Portland shopping mall and opened fire, killing two and wounding a third before taking his own life.

Exactly one week after the Newtown mayhem, Jeffrey Lee MIchael launched a central Pennsylvania killing spree, taking the lives of three civilians and injuring a trio of State Troopers before they finally shot him dead. Days later — Christmas Eve morning — a 62 year old ex-con cut down four Webster, NY firefighters who responded when he set his own home ablaze; two subsequently died. As the inferno spread through his neighborhood, the shooter, William Spengler, Jr., was pinned down by an arriving policeman before dying himself from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

I know I keep saying this but lets keep trying to work together as gun owners.  We need to stick together and try to help those who don’t understand why we like guns.  And we need to do it without arguing, cussing, etc.  Conduct yourself like an upstanding member of society, like 90% of us gun owners are, and at least we wont be fueling their anti-gun fire.

Thanks as always for taking a few minutes to check out my blog.  Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email to let me know what you think.  My email address is over on my About Page.  I’d love to hear from you.

    I am often amazed how every time a nut job commits a crime with a gun, instead of severely punishing the criminal the liberals instead want to further restrict my rights as a law abiding citizen to keep and bear arms.

      But that’ll solve the problem, don’t you see? If we get rid of the guns that are purchased legally and used legally, then the criminals wont be able to get their guns illegally anymore . . .

      At least I THINK that’s what they’re thinking. Makes absolutely no sense to me though. Taking guns out of the hands of responsible citizens is IRRESPONSIBLE at best.
