    I have been a part of the website for some time and have had little exchange except, for the help I get from reading about your expert information. I shoot both skeet and trap, not very good at either but have a lot of fun. Now I have a question for all the folks in the ether out there! At what point should we as individuals start to put a spotlight on a (possibly the) real issue, like media bias? Many have stated here that the only real news is when it can be tied guns and when guns are involved in a crime. When will discussions happen and information be given to the masses that we should address mental health issues, the break up of the family unit, the lack of God in out lives, the glorified violence on TV and video games, and a whole host of other issues?! As we all know it is not guns or knives clubs or fist fights that kill people it is people that kill people.

    What do you think? Thanks all for letting me be a part of this great forum.

    I'm 61 years old and I distinctly remember a High School journalism teacher telling me that "BAD NEWS SELLS NEWSPAPERS". That was back in the 60's go figure.

    You think?

    MSNBC and CNN biased?

    Who would have THUNK it?

    Seriously, the urban, left wing bias has become evident to anyone with an IQ above a kumquat......

    When it comes to news....ALWAYS CONSIDER THE SOURCE!

    Chessie33,

    The large circulation media may well be liberally biased and i wouldn't try to refute that. I would point out that "glorified violence on TV and video games", the break up of the family and the lack of God in daily life are common threads throughout developed countries. At the same time, because they all have some sort of government subsidized health system, mental health health care is relatively easily available. Nonetheless, in every other developed country the number of gun deaths is dramatically lower, even when population is taken into account. How do you account for that?

    They secretly know the things you mention are definitely wrong with America. But, they can't admit it, because they've been catechized that you "can't force your morality on someone else." After all - "not everybody is so fortunate to have so good a family life and upbringing as you." It's considered kicking somebody while they're down to point these things out.


    So, we just keep living in the slum pit, not judging, not criticizing people who are "not so fortunate"...and pin the blame on inanimate objects that can't argue back - because it's the easy way out that doesn't involve blaming anybody.

    It is a transparent attempt to subliminally poison the collective subconscious of the public by making the repeated association of "GUN" with "CRIMINAL" they are trying to change the "gun culture."

    When someone kills someone with a car, it is not the "CARMAN" or a stabbing victim was killed by the "KNIFEMAN"......hunters and gun owners are to be portrayed as the "bad guys" in the court of public opinion until it sticks!

    It is the opposite of how they changed the perception of certain minority groups by always portraying them as heroic, noble, etc. in movies, television shows, etc.
    Change the perception and then, change the culture. Things they like are portrayed in a positive light, things they don't like are associated with negativity.

    Guns are under attack. Gun owners are stigmatized. It is part of the libtard plan to replace the "gun culture."

    Newspapers are biased because the advertisers want it that way. Liberals are fools, and believe if you change to this or that product your life will immediately become glamorus and exciting. Advertisers sense this and cater to it.


    A stodgy old conservative will not buy based on advertising, and probably will not buy "Axe" to make the girls fall all over him. Drink Bud and babes will flock to you. Drive a Corvette and you become a virile man-hunk.

    Yeah, right.

    I think we may be on the track of something here.
