Before even pausing to mourn the children, teachers and school administrators murdered in Connecticut, our friends in the legacy media sought to pin the blame on someone other than the deranged shooter. The NRA is to blame. Or so, some claimed. (Just check the Facebook feed from some of your liberal friends.)
Look up at CNN next time you’re at the gym — or in an airport — and you’ll see another piece on guns. It’s not that most Americans are clamoring for gun control,* it’s that folks in their circles are doing that.
CNN — and other voices in the legacy media — attempt to craft a national narrative from the opinions of certain segments of the population.
How much different our news would be if our journalists associated more often with small businessmen and women or churchgoing Christians.
*in the sense that Americans have not made guns their A-number-1 priority, holding it to be the issue on which our elected officials must act before it considers any other matters.
