‘News Report’ Tries to Stir Up Anti-Gun Demand Where Little Exists

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 1.53.23 PM
“The shootings in Louisiana now have several groups calling for gun control measures that are more strict in Colorado and across the country,” Fox 31 “reported” in a thinly-disguised promotional piece for Michael Bloomberg’s  interests that ignored the real story. “Tonight, Lafayette Louisiana joins the long and growing list of cities like Charleston, Aurora and Littleton to become national symbols of gun violence,” propagandist-disguised-as-newsman Mark Meredith solemnly intoned. “Today, on Denver’s 16th Street Mall, a handful of women with the group Moms Demand Action, hit the streets near a movie theater, hoping movie-goers will hear their call for action.” . . .

Christie’s Bullying Tirade Deflects from Having to Answer Tough Questions on Guns

1404985522109.cached

“Chris Christie tore into a gun rights activist who questioned his Second Amendment record in an Iowa town hall event Saturday night, displaying the fiery and confrontational style the New Jersey governor is known for,” CNN approvingly proclaimed in its “report” on the exchange. Other media, including The Huffington Post and The Des Moines Register were quick to portray it as “Christie fires back” and “Christie counters” respectively.

Why Didn’t These Murders Make National News Last Week Too?

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 1.46.52 PM 1

“Two teenage brothers are in police custody on suspicion that they killed their parents and three siblings, ranging in ages from 5 to 12 years old, in their Oklahoma home Wednesday night, police said.” Wait. Five people murdered? That was the day before the Lafayette theater shooting in which the psychotic murderer only killed two (pardon us if we don’t count his suicide). As reader Scott L. wrote to us . . .

New York Gun Owners Tell Cuomo to Pound Sand On SAFE Act Registration

Although TTAG has been reporting on the civil disobedience brewing among gun owners in New York to the ironically-named NY SAFE Act, the story is now spreading enough such that even elements of the mainstream media are unable to ignore it anymore. NPR reported on Friday that “it appears that many gun owners are refusing to comply with a key provision that requires the registration of so-called assault weapons.” Imagine that . . .

WWYD: Gun Store Buttinsky Edition

ABC News apparently has a regular feature titled, ‘What Would You Do?’ It’s a kind of Candid Camera arrangement with actors creating uncomfortable public situations. The hook is seeing how members of the general public react to them. In this case, a father’s buying a gun for his son on his seventh birthday at a San Antonio gun store when a woman walks up and objects to the impropriety of it all. Dad, junior and nosey Nancy are all actors (as is the salesman). As reader Chris J. (who alerted us to this little gem) wrote, “surprisingly it was not the usual ABC fare. Overall it was pretty good, even if, as I suspect, they cherry picked the most negative reaction they found to the AK.” Agree?

The Trace: Guns are Useless for Self Defense…And We Have Proof!

P1160924

We’ve been following The Trace, a new civilian disarmament propaganda tool funded by Michael Bloomberg and his gun control campaigns that claims to not take sides in the gun control debate. Instead, they purport to present facts in an impartial and journalistic manner. Their first article didn’t inspire much confidence in that it proved the authors were starting out the window during high school statistics. Their latest effort isn’t much of an improvement . . .

Sara Tipton: Mila Kunis is a Lousy Gun-Owning Parent

800px-MPMP5K-2

Actress Mila Kunis recently shared her parenting choices at eonline.comMila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher Keep a Gun at Their House—Find Out Why and What She Said About Baby Wyatt. Mila Kunis displays a high level of firearms expertise in her movies (let’s hope so, considering the extensive training she receives in order to do so), but her view on “gun parenting” are wide of the mark. As a mother about the same age as Kunis and an avid gun owner who can also “take a gun apart and put it back together blindfolded,” I profoundly disagree with this statement . . .

New Yorker Funny Guy to Gun Rights Advocates: You’re Morons

Andy Borowitz (courtesy wikipedia.org)

New Yorker writer Andy Borowitz is tired. He’s too tired to fact-check studies that “prove” that gun ownership is a bad, bad thing for both individuals and society at large. Too tired to read TTAG’s analysis of the faulty methodology required to produce these foregone conclusion. And he’s tired of people who dare question this “settled science” on gun control. So he wrote this semi-moronic – sorry semi-ironic “news satire” instead . . .

Bloomberg’s The Trace Publishes First Article Using Dumbest Logic Ever

Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 5.46.46 PM

We’ve been watching as gun control activist bazillionaire Michael Bloomberg has been setting up a new project called “The Trace.” The claim is that this new website will provide “balance” to the gun control discussion, and is being portrayed as an independent news source without any biases. That would be all well and good if it were actually true. The very first article they published proves that their claims about accuracy and fair reporting are about as hard and fast as a bowl of Jell-O . . .
