    Apparently CNN thinks buying guns is a crime.

    Recently while I was on the road coming back from a 96 hour liberty(aka-brief sanity check), I was reading news articles on my sweet new G1, and I came across an article on CNN's website that was titled, 'Gun sales surge after Obama's election.' What bothered me was that this article was in the Crime section of CNN's website.

    Naturally this offended me, so of course I took a few minutes to write CNN and express my disapproval for their interpretation of high gun sale numbers. Unless, of course they were referring to the fact that gun sales have greatly increased in anticipation of Obama pushing through some unconstitutional law, in which case, I would consider their classification accurate.

    Now, yes, I know that that the media has a clear bias, but its unfortunate that gun owners and firearms dealers are constantly portrayed as being a cause of crime.

    I just thought i would share this little slight. I hope I posted this in the right place. If anyone is interested the link is below. The article is of little consequence, but if your interested:

    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
