    Don't know if there is a thread on this already.

    Media Silence Is Deafening About Important Gun News | Fox News

    It's just one more reason I despise mainstream media.

    Yeah John Lott is the best. I assume everyone on the choir here has seen his book: "More Guns, Less Crime" and his web site: John Lott's Website

    Really good stuff.

    Apparently some 30+ years of data gathered by the DoJ confirming that increased gun ownership reduces crime has no bearing on anything. This is nothing new.

    I was reading about how in 2006, 28 years after allowing CC, Florida had .03% of CC permit holders commit crimes with guns. Not 3%, .03%.

    The mountain of statistics compiled proving that encouraging, and training, people to use and own firearms reduces accidents and crime are ignored at every turn of the anti-gunners.

    It strikes me as somewhat naive to think that those adamantly opposed to something would circulate any information showing the benefits of same.

    A few years ago the "Brady Bunch" gleefully posted an article around Texas CCW permit holders who were arrested on a forearm violation.

    Upon care digging into the Texas site which keep tabs on such CCW permit info, only a very small fraction of those arrested were actually CONVICTED.

    As been said many times, the anti-gunners will print statistics they want the naive public to believe.

    Is Fox News not part of the mainstream media?
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Not according to anyone to the left of Rush Limbaugh. They might be the dominate network, and go out of their way to present multiple sides to a story, but ask any self described democrat, and they'll spew venom as if you told them Sarah Palin had taken a job at their child's school.
    The views expressed above are the opinion of the poster and may or may not be total bunk.

    Of course they're silent over it. You don't expect the media to print the truth do you?

    The “news” media will never let facts confuse their opinions.

    Just so your aware fox news has more viewers than any other American news outlet. That pretty much makes fox news the DEFINITION of a main stream news outlet.
    -It is a seriously scary thought that there are subsets of American society that think being intellectual is a BAD thing...
