Whenever some kook generates headlines by committing a crime with a firearm, the talking heads in the mainstream media respond by rote (and in unison), “Gun control, gun control, gun control.” Tim Daniels addresses this in a post at the Daily Caller, but adds a twist, er, an anecdote that doesn’t fit the narrative:
It’s a song and dance that we on the right have grown to be accustomed with concerning second amendment rights and the press. Virulent anti-gun groups and mainstream press outlets essentially spout the same talking points. We expect this, we accept this.
Read the whole thing.
Wonder if more stories like this would generate headlines if there were more in the media intent on serious conversation on guns. And not just when humans could have protected themselves against wild animals, but also wild members of our own species.
You know, why is there never any speculation about how, when some kook attacks gay people, a concealed carry law might have caused that nut to think twice before he acted on his animus. Why not the narrative: Crazy hate-filled thugs fear well-armed gays.
