This is a discussion on I'm done with CNN and their 2A/SYG rhetoric within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; What amazes me is that CNN still tows an anti-gun line, even as guns are becoming more socially accepted.

What amazes me is that CNN still tows an anti-gun line, even as guns are becoming more socially accepted. Gallup polls tell the tale, even 55% of democrats have a "favorable" view of the NRA for goodness sake.
I have been done with them since day one. Don't you know that they stand for Communist News Network.
Instead of calling it the news, it should be called the "corporate political spin".

I' keep an eye on all of 'em. Sometimes it good to know what's on their minds.
"Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008
"Sometimes when you're making gumbo, people just show up.", Leah Chase
contrived news network?
with all the propaganda that they run and all the false news stories it is more like a reality show than a news show
That's not even in the apples and oranges category of bad comparisons. These writers are/were both lawyers? I suppose both of them would just as soon toss out the BoR, just like fearful leader.Nothing in our Constitution even vaguely promotes the redress of grievances with guns; the "redress of grievances" clause of the First Amendment has nothing to with the "right to bear arms" described in the Second Amendment. Rather, what the Constitution protects is the ability to redress our grievances by petitioning our government.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
My doctor gave me medication for my blood pressure and advised me against getting angry and uptight so I stopped watching them YEARS ago. I couldn't even name one their shows..
Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.
The article hits all of the low points: race (without a demonstrable pattern), indictment of SYG law itself (with democratic approval), guns kill the wrong people and cause crime (reputable news sources and our most fundamental institutions don't find this), and speculation of experts (fallacy). The article fails in its final lament to "[equip with] knowledge it takes to frame a good and righteous petition". That is certainly a prime benefit of the fourth estate. Don't expect any "good and rightous petitions" from this CNN entry.

when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
