The job of the news isn’t to politicize current events.
It’s to report the facts and disseminate them to the public.
So shame on NBC for being caught in this mind-blowing scandal that puts innocent lives at risk.
On Sunday afternoon, at a garlic festival of all places, a deranged madman unleashed a volley of shots into a crowd of innocent people enjoying all things garlic.
At the time we published this article, the death count stands at 3 and the total injured at 15.
It’s a senseless tragedy. And it’s the kind of disaster we’re used to dealing with here in America.
That being said, there are a few things regarding these shootings that the mainstream media continues to ignore – and on purpose.
And every time they omit to mention these undeniable facts, it puts hundreds – if not thousands – of innocent lives in danger.
NBC News is just as guilty as the rest of the mainstream media.
Within 12 hours of the shooting, NBC wrote an article about the shooting but failed to mention the following:
>> The shooting took place in a gun-free zone.
>> California already has the strictest gun laws on the planet, yet has one of the highest incidences of gun violence in the nation.
>> The shooter used a rifle that’s illegal in California.
>> The shooter used magazines that are also illegal in California.
>> The shooter was taken down by police (men with guns) in less than 2 minutes, which demonstrates the necessity of an armed public for security.
All five of these points will likely receive little to no coverage in the coming weeks.
But what will happen is NBC will begin their calls for more legislation against gun rights.
NBC will clear the airwaves and their Twitter feed for lawmakers to agitate for more gun laws while overlooking the facts.
This is a massive scandal against the American public, one that you shouldn’t tolerate.
Every instance in which the media is complicit in allowing politicians to pass more gun laws is an instance where more innocent lives are put at risk.
Let’s start with gun-free zones. In the past decade, the vast majority of “mass shootings” publicized by major media outlets took place in gun-free zones.
In the aftermath of those shootings, two things happened.
Lawmakers passed more laws regulating firearms, and the number of gun-free zones in the nation climbed.
Conversely, they talked ad-nauseam about the dangers of guns and advocated on behalf of the anti-gun lobby to restrict gun rights.
It’s a mind-blowing scandal. A scandal that freedom-loving Americans shouldn’t take lightly either.
Gun-free zones pose a quantifiable threat to our safety. In almost every recorded circumstance, gun laws did nothing to prevent gun violence.
If we continue to allow a biased media to influence legislation like this, the few freedoms we have remaining will evaporate faster than a speeding bullet.
