Once again, THE most liberal, anti-American news outlet is using the misfortune of people to help push their liberal anti-American, anti-gun agenda.
This time, they turned their attention to injuries caused by air guns, used to shoot smaller projectiles like paintballs and light-weight pellets. They talk about how people have lost an eye because of air gun injuries. In the first case they report, the boy took off his protective googles and was shot in the eye. The problem isn’t the air gun, but the fact that they boy failed to adhere to safety regulations and ended up injured.
Hey, isn’t that grounds for more gun control, even if they are just air guns or paintball guns?
(CNN) – He removed his goggles for just a moment, to wipe away the colorful paint splattered across them, and then his life changed forever.
At that moment, the 12-year-old boy, who would become Dr. Douglas Fredrick’s youngest patient with an air-gun-related eye injury, was hit in the face a second time while playing at a paintball range in New Hampshire, Fredrick said.
Without the goggles to protect him, the paintball caused one of his eyes to rupture.
“It was unfortunate,” said Fredrick, who treated the boy while on faculty at Dartmouth College but is now a clinical professor of ophthalmology at Stanford University.
“He actually lost the eye,” Fredrick said.
When you read what CNN is pushing, it basically comes down to the fact that they are trying to use the faults of people to push their blind agenda. But they need to realize that they can’t legislate mistakes, accidents and stupidity. If they are consistent with their argument and logic, then they need to push to legislate how everyone thinks and acts.
