I’ll be blogging brooklyn.news12.com‘s report on an anti-gun protest in a mo’. Meanwhile, I’d like to focus on the words above the news reader’s shoulder: “ENDING GUN VIOLENCE.” While I salute anyone dedicated to reducing firearms fatalities – provided their efforts do not infringe upon Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms – the effort requires realism. As long as there are guns, “gun violence” will never end. Even if the antis could restrict legal firearms to the police and military, there would still be firearms-related homicide. New12 might claim the words “ending gun violence” fairly depict the story’s protagonists’ anti-pistol pogrom, but would they use “welcoming extraterrestrials” for a report on people who believe space aliens will save our civilization from war? Maybe they would. Anyway, I know anti-gun agitprop when I see it. You?
