Mud Slinging Media (MSM) Challenge on Gun Control

Here’s a challenge for the Mud Slinging Media (MSM) on Gun Control.

Shouldn’t the MSM publish a story on the location of every felon?  Instead, they publish a story on the location of every gun and every gun owner!


What have we accomplished here besides making every would be gun owner think twice before registering their firearm?

Why doesn’t the MSM do some public good and let us know where the likely high crime areas would be i.e., where registered felons live, as opposed to low crime areas, where registered gun owners live.

Let’s connect the dots and see where the registered felons live as opposed to the registered gun owners.  The only concern I would have is registered felons would likely post one address (living with Mom) but live at another.

Is there one decent reporter out there that is curious to learn whether it’s possible owning a gun may, in fact, deter crime?

On the other hand, maybe the paper’s publisher, Janet Hasson, president of the Journal News Media Group, should do a follow-up story on registered felons to redeem herself in the eyes of these gun owners.

Think about it?

    16,000 people are killed each year by drunk drivers. Of that about 4,500 of those were children. So in 10 years that would be about 45,000 children. Logic would say that we need to ban alcohol, right?

    The only legislative accomplishment by then State Sen. Barack Obama was to sponsor and pass a Partial Birth Abortion bill in the Illinois Legislature. Partial Birth abortions kill 500 to 1,000 children a year. Far more children than those killed by someone using a gun. But we have a president and Federal Legislators who are intent on systematically dismantling the U.S. Constitution. Exploiting the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary fits right into Mr. Obama’s agenda to use this tragedy as a means of chipping away at the 2nd Amendment. As Irv said above, drunk driving kills more children than guns, should we do away with motor vehicles? Pool drownings kill more people than guns, should we now pass a law making built in pools illegal?
