NBC: When it Comes to the Second Amendment Facts are Optional


It is unfortunate to see that the National Broadcasting Company has not let up in its crusade to destroy the Second Amendment- this week they trumpeted a false story claiming that the NRA would not oppose expanded Gun RegistrationBackground Check legislation currently proposed in the Senate. In fact the NRA responded to this shameful distortion of the truth with:

“The NRA opposes criminalizing private firearms transfers between law-abiding individuals, and therefore opposes an expansion of the background check system…”

NBC! I used to think you were bad- even by the standards of the Mainstream Propaganda Machine ( Ever hear of the Journo-List ???) . Here are a few examples why I can no longer support you in any way. Sorry Sunday Night Football- you were the last bastion of my viewership. What could make me so disgusted with NBC to even give up NFL Games off the Week? The mainstream media have been sensationalistic for many years but their role in the latest incarnation of the Gun Control debate has gone too far. NBC has been excessive and their latest lies about (Universal Background Checks) Gun Registration is the point where I cannot tolerate any more. Consider the following examples in addition to the outright lies about Gun Control initiatives in Congress:

  • No stranger to selectively edited video clips, MSNBC aired a misleading and incomplete clip of testimony given by the father of a Sandy Hook victim at a hearing before the Connecticut Legislature. The edits make it appear as if pro-gun advocates maliciously interrupted (or “heckled” as many have said) the dad for no reason as he calmly argued against civilians owning semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines. MSNBC also won’t admit that they made a mistake
Can the truth survive in this day and age? With mainstream media like MSNBC and NBC distorting truth to further political agendas it causes me to take pause. This looks like propaganda, smells like propaganda….what are we supposed to think ( and while I’m at it WTF happened in Benghazi)? Referring back to the J-List and now piecing together the intentional smearing of the image of law-abiding American citizens who merely wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights (revolutionary, dumb redneck, negligent, dangerous people) I am saddened. There are far too many people who believe everything the News media tells them. However I am informed enough to not believe the Jouro-lists – just because they ‘dissolved’ the group doesn’t than that this doesn’t still go on- how else does the mainstream media find its common voice so quickly on every story(ahem, Cabalist)?
Stay informed. Don’t accept the malarkey being blasted across the airwaves. Use common sense when you hear the news. Talk to Your friends and neighbors who don’t understand guns- without invoking rants or conspiracy theories (even when they are abundant) demonstrate that gun owners are people just like them. And nothing like the stereotypes being trumpeted across the media.
