Sometimes —  a lot of times — I wish the mainstream media would Google search their “gun violence” stories before shooting their mouths off. So to speak. If NPR had taken the time to research so-called “violence interrupters” — ex-cons charged with convincing gang bangers not to shoot each other — they’d discover two salient facts. First . . .

After TN Theater Incident, CNN Calls for More Gun Control – Despite Fake Gun

CLr2Y94UsAA0PLF

Immediately following the news that there was an attack in a movie theater in Antioch, Tennessee, CNN’s anchors consistently started the segment by intoning that, “We’ve seen this time and again.” The implication was that shootings in theaters are becoming commonplace and they bemoaned the fact that nothing has been done to prevent such tragedies. The obvious conclusion: CNN’s anchors wanted to see more gun control legislation. Since that hasn’t happened they are blaming every attack on the evil NRA and gun owners. There’s just one problem: the gun used in this particular incident was fake . . .

LA Times Falls Hook, Line and Sinker For Debunked Gun Control “Study”

Hemenway_David

I honestly can’t say that I’m surprised no one at the LA Times bothered to fact check their latest anti-gun editorial. The article, penned by David Hemenway himself, is pretty much a copy and paste job from an article in Michael Bloomberg’s The Trace which I already thoroughly took to the woodshed for some quality time. And yet here we are, another anti-gun editorial staff ignoring basic scientific and statistical principles because the article supports their preconceived notions. How bad is it? So bad that my high school statistics teacher would slap me upside my head if I even began to accept this as “good math.”

Max Justice On Gun-Free Zones [GRAPHIC]

Impressive production values or not, this Max Justice video isn’t exactly subtle. There’s a little country church with a prominently posted ‘FIREARMS PROHIBITED’ sign. Add an appropriately menacing bald white guy in a camo boonie hat, anti-depressants in his car and mayhem in his heart. You’re sure that you’re about to witness bloody massacre until a paintball gear-bedecked Sith lord appears as if from nowhere . . .

MSG+ Blurs GunsAmerica.com Sponsorship on World Extreme Cagefighter’s Trunks

So, I’m flipping through the channels tonight and I stopped at MSG+ to watch a World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) event for a few minutes. I’m not really a fan, but every once in a while, I stop and watch for a few minutes. As I’m watching, I notice one of the fighter’s shorts keeps getting blurred out anytime he faces the camera…so, I get to wondering, what the heck could he have on his shorts that would be so offensive that even an Extreme Cagefighting event would have to blur it out…so, I do some searching and low and behold, this is what I find . . .

Primary Weapons Systems’ .300 BLK MK109 in Pop Culture

insider-threat-cover

Brad Taylor spent 21 years in the U.S. Army, including eight in the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment–Delta (aka Delta Force), before retiring in 2010. In 2011, he published his first novel and the first book in the Pike Logan, “Taskforce” thriller series, One Rough Man (an allusion to the George Orwell quote: “People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm.”). Since reading that book a few years ago, I have faithfully pre-ordered every subsequent installment as soon as it popped up for Kindle pre-order on Amazon, and recently finished The Insider Threat, the most recent novel in the series. Much to my surprise and enjoyment, Mr. Taylor quite prominently featured the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge, the PWS MK109, and the GEMTECH GMT-300BLK suppressor all working together in concert to provide a new, highly effective “black rifle” for the Taskforce to replace their range-limited HK UMP45s. Excerpts from the novel follow. . .

Others include the Associated Press, New York Times and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.” . . .

An Anti-Gun Meme is Born: “Sheepdog Fife”

Don Knotts (courtesy wikimedia.org)

Tex300BLK called it in our article Washington Post: “Watch what happens when regular people try to use handguns in self-defense.” “This is the straw man we have been made into,” Tex300BLK wrote. “The bumbling incompetent ‘civilian’ who went into Walmart, bought a GLOCK and a box of bullets and got a CHL without ever firing a shot from it . . . This is the new meme that the media will now go full court press on.” Just a day later, nashvillescene.com published a piece called Why Would You Want to Bring Your Gun to a Concert? A post that launches the term “Sheepdog Fife” to disscredit [sic] armed self-defense.

Question of the Day: How Do You Counter Gun Control Advocates on Television?

Magician comedian and gun rights supporter Penn Jillette gets owned on a Comedy Central’s Nightly Show debate on gun rights. For one thing, it looks like he’s struggling (#tonematters). In this clip, Jillette attempts to draw a parallel between the “technology means the Second Amendment is outdated” argument by his millennial antagonist and the technological enhancements since the First Amendment was drafted. It’s the right approach, but incomplete – thanks to an interruption. He switches gears and concedes that “we’re evolving as people.” Which is where things go seriously wrong . . .

Washington Post: “Watch what happens when regular people try to use handguns in self-defense”

What is it with The Washington Post? The paper is obsessed with dissing Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Hardly a day passes without the paper supporting new gun control legislation, both generally and specifically pissing on gun rights. When a gun control org commissioned and released a new study called Firearms Training and Self-Defense highlighting the difficulty of armed self-defense, the WaPo’s Christopher Ingraham seized on it to “prove” that non-law enforcement civilians are incapable of using their firearm to good effect when faced with violent attack. Click here for the original study. Here’s Ingraham’s take . . .

Bloomberg-Affiliated Propagandists Asking Oregon Gun Shops For Help With Anti-Gun PSA

Screen Shot 2015-08-01 at 8.03.47 AM
A Washington DC “Democrat media consulting firm” affiliated with Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (and a host of anti-gun politicians) is offering Oregon gun dealers $1,500 to allow them to film an on-location “public service announcement,” Oregon Firearms Federation announced Friday. The filmmakers need a gun store as a backdrop for an actor to tell viewers how “easy” it is to comply with form requirements . . .

‘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.” . . .
