Dishonesty in the mainstream media is diverting the gun-control debate away from the obvious solution. Once the facts have been examined, the solution is simple and obvious, but the media is avoiding the answer. The media want everyone to believe that all gun crime committed in this country is perpetrated by a conservative, Christian, Tea Party Patriot, NRA member, or Republican. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. If you look at the most heinous gun crimes committed most recently in our country—those that have renewed the assault on the second amendment and given vigor to the gun confiscation debate—you see that the crimes were committed by mentally-impaired people who, as it turns out, are liberals, progressives, or big Democratic supporters.
A case in point is the most recent nut-job to commit a gun crime: Chris Dorner, a former LA-police officer who is on a murder rampage in Los Angeles and Southern California. In his manifesto Dorner touts Democrats and their leftwing agenda. He defends Barack Obama and most of his policies, Joe Biden’s and the gun-control working group for the Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), and Dianne Feinstein for wanting to re-institute the AWB. He also praises Bill Clinton, endorses Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, and endorses moderate New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Dorner also praises the liberal talking heads, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper for their great work, while saying some vile things about NRA president Wayne LaPierre. I find it interesting that the politics of personal destruction is considered neither personal nor destructive if used by a Liberal. Post continues on Patriot Update
