When National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” the collective gasp from the media must have been heard for miles.
These pitifully ignorant people don’t understand research and certainly have no intellectual curiosity. They went ballistic when confronted with the fact that they had to share responsibility for promoting a culture of violence and failing to honestly report the true damage Hollywood’s movies and rap music and “revolving door justice” have done especially to young people.
The media savaged LaPierre but overlooked Code Pink when they interrupted him carrying signs saying, “NRA KILLING OUR KIDS,” and screaming that the gun rights group has “blood on its hands.” They believe Code Pink because it makes them feel good about themselves.
A nitwit named Hugo Schwyzer has told the media Adam Lanza killed 20 children and 6 adults to play his “man card” and the media believe that because they don’t want to look at the facts LaPierre has shoved under their noses.
They believe Piers Morgan when he tweeted “Coming to a town near you, courtesy of the NRA – Gunfights at the US school corral.” This shameless self-promoter is a man whose own country suffered the slaughter of 16 children in a grade school because there was no good guy with a gun to stop the animal who was shooting them. They believed him because they are as stupid and shameless as he is.
They mock LaPierre’s facts and believe an empty-headed moron like Arianna Huffington when she accuses The NRA of wanting an “armed insurrection against the U.S. government…” because that is easier than facing their own complicity in the violent culture they promote and worship.
Perhaps the biggest lie the media is swallowing is their own insistence that the American people are with them in blaming these horrific crimes on guns, the NRA, Ronald Reagan, George Bush or whoever they want to blame rather than the mentally ill killers who commit them.
A new Gallup survey shows 53% of Americans believe putting police officers in schools is the best way to stop these crimes and 42% believe banning assault guns is the answer. Another 36% believes such bans would have no effect at all.
