7 Examples of Media Bias Against Gun Owners

Is the mainstream media biased against gun owners? You bet it is.

Are gun owners aware of this fact? Yes. Do we care? I suspect most of us don’t. At this point, it’s pretty much expected.

With that said, we do get irked from time to time at the media’s portrayal of gun owners, which frequently hews to the narrative that we’re all a bunch of paranoid zealots, blood-thirsty and pernicious, who horde supplies and hideout in subterranean bunkers awaiting a zombie apocalypse.

Naw, that might be overstating it. It’s probably more accurate to say that the media propagates or reinforces some version of President Obama’s notorious depiction of Middle America when talking about gun owners:

“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” – President Obama, 2008.

    I know enough when the lying president says the citizens are with him when he talks about firearms restriction. If he is correct, why is it the congress and senate switch-board is lite up 15 to 1 against any firearms restriction. (I mean any, No firearms, ammo, ammo taxation, firearms taxation, ammo clips or taxation, type or size of firearm or even how many. )

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.”
    – Adolf Hitler 1933

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future”………Adolph Hitler 1935

    “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government,
    so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution
    so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin

    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

    Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

    The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams

    Sometimes people from the past are wiser than we are..

    “A Nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it can not survive TREASON FROM WITHIN… An enemy at the gates is less formidable for he is known and he carries his banners openly, but the traitor moves among those within the gate freely. His sly whispers rustling thru all the galleries, heard in every hall of government itself. For the traitor appears, not as a traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims and he wears their face and their garments. He appeals to the BASENESS that lies in the heart of all men. He rots the soul of a Nation. He works secretly and unknown in the night, to undermine the pillars of the city. He INFECTS THE BODY POLITIC, so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. ”
    – Cicero 42 B.C.

    They will try to bury us in reemes os lies! Just remember these words! “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” No matter what they argue, answer with that statement! And hint that you are locked and loaded to inforce it!

    Boycott Comcast, Walmart, & Starbucks. These companies are either pro gun control, or do not like Christians! We need a Christian revolt! Bless you all.

    Only 7? I can think of a hundred reasons they don’t report real news, want to be on the best side of Hitler-in-chief or get burned down someday and their pride is going to come before a fall. No news just propaganda for the new Hitler in the White House, hope they like the hot place they are going to for all eternity wishing they could tell the truth for once?

    It seems that we are plagued by BHO’s lack of leadership and must deal with him distorting facts and attempts to divert public attention away from his ability to lead by harping on the gun issue and he has never given up on campaigning across the country. Mr. President,how about staying in Washington, doing the job you were elected to do and instead of offering lip service to the citizens of this country start working with congress.

    Main stream journalists are dishonest hacks who omit vital facts while distorting others to pass off their personal opinions as news and do anything in order to grab headlines and have their worthless garbage in print.

  • wellduh

    Just waiting for the gnashing of the teeth. Every man falls from power eventually. The corrupt surround themselves with men/women who can’t stand for right to prevail; yet it will and they will be history.
