THE REAL FACE OF GUN-OWNING AMERICA: Women, Weapons and the News

I’ve spoken to most of these women.  They are intelligent and articulate advocates for armed self-defense. (1)  So why haven’t you heard about them?  Why are they hidden by the mainstream media?  Because they don’t fit the story the media wants to tell about firearms owners in America. For the media, selling images is easier than arguing the detailed policy implications of gun control.  It is easier to sell outrage than reasoned debate.

For example, real gun control will disproportionately harm the poor in our inner cities.  The poor are, after all, the most likely victims of crime.  Disarming the poor makes them easier victims and so increases violent crime.  That isn’t a pretty picture.  It doesn’t fit the media narrative.

What do you think?  Does the media speak for you and tell the truth about the firearms owners you know?
