It’s no wonder people are confused about guns.
I was sent this in an email “news” alert. Here’s an easy exercise… Spot the propaganda:
“Frustrated by state and federal lawmakers’ reluctance to address gun violence, local officials are starting a movement to control firearms within their borders. It’s an uphill task given that all but seven states have laws prohibiting them from doing so, but their work is slowly catching on.
In recent months, local governments have limited certain kinds of semi-automatic rifles, created “gun-free zones” and adopted zoning laws to keep out gun stores. “The failure of the Congress to pass policies that keep our communities and children safe means towns feel compelled to act,” Stephen Benjamin, mayor of Columbia, South Carolina, said
“Frustrated”? “lawmakers”? “reluctance”? “address”? “gun violence”? “officials”? “starting a movement”? “uphill task”? “their work”? “catching on”? “limited”? “created”, “adopted”? “keep out”? “failure”? “policies that keep our communities and children safe”? “feel compelled”?
That’s a lot of propaganda in only two paragraphs. I probably even missed some.
Why the dishonest phrasing? Is it because of the anti-liberty bias of the “news” organization? Yes. Yes, it is.
No matter your excuse, if you propose, pass, or enforce anti-gun “laws”, YOU are a BAD GUY. YOU are as bad as the evil losers who shoot up crowds of (“legally”) disarmed victims. You can try to veil your evil acts in all the glowing lies you want. It’s still nothing but lies.
And when your lies warp people’s opinions about something as critical as natural human rights you may actually be worsethan the evil losers who shoot up crowds. Yes, “mainstream media”, including the fly-by-night outfit which crafted this propaganda piece, I am looking at you and judging you. You don’t measure up.
