    Joe Horns Media Pictures

    Hope this is the correct forum for this.

    Anyone else wonder why the media pick the picture of Joe Horn that they ran in thier stories about the shooting? When I first saw it I thought he looked like some kind of crazy person wearing that funny hat. His cheeks all red like he had been drinking.

    Later when I got to see other pics of him he looked like someones kindly grandfather. Its amazing the different impressions of the man you get when viewing the pictures.
    Is the picture of him in the hat the way he was dressed when the shooting occured? Was it meerly a picture picked out to make him look bad?

    Many of the shooters that I know are also ,like me, fans of older guns. They have had pictures of themselves taken wearing their period clothing and guns. I myself have considered having an old styled photo of me taken while dressed up and holding my knives and my favorite sharps rifle.

    The way the media has portrayed Joe Horn in pics has made me reconsider this. It worries me to think that they might have purposly looked for picthures that made him look bad.

    Got a link?

    The media is not your friend. They will do whatever it takes for a story they want you to see and how they want it to show or look, right or wrong. They are not a friend of chl permit holders that take responsability for there safety. It would not surprise me in the least that is what they did.

    I sure don't know about his pictures but I have listened to the 911 tape...

    Pictures are the least of his worries, I think this ol'boy has cooked his own goose!

    C'mon. Not every gun owner or 2A supporter is good for our cause.

    They can show a picture of him rescuing drowning puppies but there isn't anything that is going to make up for that audio tape.

    50 years ago Joe Horn would have received a citizenship award. Not so in 2007.

    It sucks big time, but that's the reality of the world we live in.

    I didnt mean to rehash him being right or wrong in the shooting.
    I was only making a comment on the picture that the media was showing day in day out. Fox news was the only network that I saw that used a different more normal looking picture.

    I was only bringing this up to ask this question.

    I know I'm just a bit paranoid about dressin up an gettin my pic taken with my sharps and all the cool stuff with it.
