Pandora Airing Everytown for Gun Safety Anti-Gun Ads

Pandora

TTAG reader RO writes;

So I’m listening to one of my created favorite stations on Pandora this morning. It’s commercial time which I normally tune out. But I heard an odd mix of words that triggered my spidey sense. It was an Everytown for Gun Safety ad. Are you EXPLETIVE DELETED kidding me? I screen grabbed a pic. I heard it twice in less than an hour. It’s full of the normal BS about politicians not doing what needs done, gun violence, blah blah blah. I’ll be sending Pandora a nastygram when I get to work.

CSGV Demands Reporter Emily Miller Be Fired for Pro 2A Stance

emilymiller

By Sara Tipton

This week the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence delivered a petition demanding that journalist Emily Miller be fired. They allege Miller has violated a “code of ethics” by maintaining a pro-gun stance on the air. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Miller spoke at an event put on by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a pro-gun group, making statements that infuriated anti-gunners everywhere. They accuse Miller of advocating violent insurrection when she stated that “There’s the ‘cold, dead fingers’ option” if the organization’s political activism is unsuccessful. At the rally, Miller told attendees that the District of Columbia “…is not part of America, because they don’t recognize the Second Amendment.” . . .

Florida ‘PolitiFact’ Slants Analysis of Gators and Guns

politifact-photos-Gator_2

A bill to allow campus carry in Florida is winding its way through the legislature. As part of his testimony in support of the bill, Florida Students for Concealed Carry president Erek Culbreath, president made the following claim: “According to the state of Florida, you are almost twice as likely to be attacked by an alligator than by someone who happens to carry a conceal-and-carry permit.” That got the attention of PolitiFact Florida’s Amy Sherman who decided to vet the claim . . .

Why Are Anti-Gunners So Vile? – ConcealedNation.org Reads Their Hate Mail

As you may be aware, gunophile and pro-2A sites such as this one are the bêtes noires of those who despise Americans’ firearms freedom. There’s no shortage of keyboard commandos out there who wish disease, death and destruction on those of us who promote the right to keep and bear arms. Rather than simply hitting the delete button, though, our friends at concealednation.org have accumulated some of their hate mail and present it here for your listening pleasure and amusement. As you might expect, a good portion of it is NSFW, even with some strategic censoring. We don’t know about you, but evidence like this that sites like Concealed Nation and TTAG are provoking this much panty twisting on the other side gives us a warm fuzzy. And only makes us want to keep on keeping on. Enjoy.

Incendiary Image of the Day: The Washington Post Thinks This is M855 Ammo

Not M855 ammo (courtesy washingtonpost.com)

Posted above the Washington Post story, The NRA, even more ridiculous than usualIt seems incredible that a mainstream media outlet that’s as virulently anti-gun as the WaPo wouldn’t have one person on their news staff who knows thing one about firearms, cartridges, magazines, armed self-defense, ballistics, law enforcement and related subjects. But then as we know here at The Truth About Guns, the truth about guns does not support the anti-gun position. So, willful ignorance? Probably more to do with the corporate culture. The odds of the Post hiring a gun rights advocate – Eugene Volkh excepted – are lower than the chances of Barnes banning bullets.

TX Bill Would Limit Photographing Cops, Discriminate Against Anyone Carrying a Gun

622x350

With the progress of a bill moving through the Texas legislature that would legalize the open carry of handguns (at least for CCW license holders), Second Amendment rights in the Lone Star state seem to be on the cusp of marked improvement. But that’s apparently a signal to at least one state representative that it’s time to roll back First Amendment freedoms. “A bill restricting the rights of citizens to record the police was filed in Texas House of Representatives on Tuesday. The House Bill 2918 introduced by Texas Representative Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) would make private citizens photographing or recording the police within 25 feet of them a class B misdemeanor.” Hold on, it gets worse . . .

Before and After: Guerilla Ad Highlights Liam Neeson’s Gun Hypocrisy

liam-neeson-gun-all-right-ucla-westwood-03

Two-faced Hollywood types are about a rare as outraged social justice warriors in Ferguson. You can’t swing a dead cat on Santa Monica Boulevard without bumping into some actor spouting his views on how Americans should live their lives while at the same time raking in mega-cinebucks portraying precisely the behavior they decry. But we live in the 21st century now, a time in which it’s easy to publicize and mock that kind of sanctimonious malarkey. An era in which it’s easy to call the hypocrites out on their deceitful double-dealing. Take, for instance, the ads that have recently appeared on bus shelters around the Los Angeles area . . .

WaPo Fact Checks President’s “Odd” Gun Control Remarks

Obama-Confused

Denizens of Hades will have felt a chill wind blowing through the underworld today. The Washington Post – as stout a defender of civilian disarmament (and Barack Obama) as you will find in the mainstream media – has called the President on the carpet for his inaccurate remarks about gun control at Benedict College, Columbia. S.C. No, seriously. In a piece entitled Obama’s odd series of exaggerated gun claims WaPo’s fact checker lets the Commander-in-Chief have it with both barrels. Metaphorically speaking. You gotta see this, excerpted here for your dining and dissing pleasure . . .

Anti-Gun Filmmaker Assaults, Robs Pro-Gun Journalist

Skye_Fitzgerald

Making movies is expensive business, but documentary movies can have a real impact. Two years ago, Kris Koenig turned to Kickstarter to produce a documentary about gun rights in the United States called “Assaulted” that raised over $71,000 to make the film a reality. He later returned for a second round of funding – another $77,000 — to finish it off. The end result was a brilliantly composed documentary. Recently a filmmaker with an anti-gun history named Skye Fitzgerald tried to do the same thing, but failed with only $2,700 pledged in 30 days. A pro-gun journalist sat down with that filmmaker, who was still trying to raise funds, to discuss the project. That discussion ended with Skye Fitzgerald stealing two video cameras, assaulting the journalist, and trying to make it seem that he had been attacked by an evil gun owner . . .

GLOCK Safe Action System trigger

Franklin County couple injured after woman’s Glock goes off in purse roanoke.com announces. See? We told you off-body carry was a no-no. That’s doubly true when a GLOCK has jealousy issues. “Lt. Phillip Young said the woman’s Glock went off while the couple sat in a vehicle outside a residence in the 1400 block of Virgil H. Goode Highway in Bassett about 3:30 p.m. The man, who was in the driver’s seat, put a drink can in the woman’s purse before putting his hand on her leg.” Ba-BAM! The bullet got them both . . .

Jennifer Mascia, rabid anti-gunner Joe Nocera’s editorial assistant, did most of the heavy lifting compiling the New York Times’ Gun Report. She revealed that she’s the daughter of a former mafia hit man when she published her book, Never Tell Our Business to Strangers, five years ago. It’s an interesting tidbit the newshounds at aljazeera.com recount in noting her latest gig. To wit . . .
