    Stories Like These Sway Folks About Guns

    Stories like these sway folks about 2A and gun rights more than some guy OC'ing and getting arrested for disorderly conduct (not gun charges):

    Police: Vicki Bolling dies after shot several times by her husband, Bill Bolling charged with first degree murder | wtsp.com

    Son Arrested In Father's Deadly Natomas Shooting - Sacramento News Story - KCRA Sacramento

    These stories are read by millions nation and world wide. The local yahoo's that get arrested for OC'ing legally get 24 hours worth of local fame and nobody even hears or talks about it except for us and the Brady Bunch.

    And of course Zimmerman is prominently displayed almost every day on CNN.com

    These stories are in the national news or links to them from national news sites everyday.

    You are correct.
    These ARE the stories the media is told to push, from the wizard behind the curtain.

    Every now and then we'll see a story about a woman or family member who thwarts the attack and/or kills the offending person.
    But it is, and always will be rare.

    A story like this will only make the local news whereas the OP’s stories will be snapped up by the AP Newswire and immediately be sent nationwide.

    Only people that are weak or uninformed get swayed by stories in the news media.

    The news media elites have only one purpose...to mold and influence the minds of the public a certain way. That is their main goal. Everything else is secondary.

    I don't think they sway people. More like the people were "swayed" long ago and stories like this allow them to say "see, see, see I told you".

    What?!? News outlets are used to "sway"public opinion?!? Since when?!?

    All sarcasm aside, only the gullible, weak minded, and timid people will believe the "Guns are bad.....m'kay" crap from the "Media."

    It is nothing new, the far left leaning, strip your rights away from you crowd has been doing stuff like this for years. Guess they believe if they keep trying, it will be successful.

    I think not, there are too many gun rights supporters out there who really do make a difference. Only when ALL of the 2A supporters are vanquished will those rights go away.
