The predictable malice of the mainstream media has once again reared its ugly head, as the liberal leaning “news” organizations unleash their wrath on the Second Amendment.
Of course we saw it coming the entire time. As soon as the Parkland, Florida Valentine’s Day massacre was complete, and before the bodies of those 17 children were even cold, the left had launched a full scale attack on the Constitution.
And, as always, the decorum of the traditional, patriotic Americans held strong. We, as defenders of the right to bear arms, did not engage in the shouting matches and pedantic protests that the democrats and their devious debutantes did. Instead, we stood back, grieved, and showed empathy for the victims of this atrocity.
And, in an almost hilarious twist of fate, when NPR asked its listeners about the possibility of banning so-called “assault” rifles, the listeners responded incredibly.
“A joint Ipsos and National Public Radio poll conducted last month found support for banning ‘assault-style’ rifles has declined 7 percent since October.
“The survey of 1,005 adults shows 72 percent favored the ban, compared with 79 percent as of Oct. 17. Nearly nine out of 10 Democrats support the policy, down 3 percent from six months ago. Meanwhile, support among Republicans and Independents dropped double digits — 12 percent and 10 percent, respectively. As of Feb. 28, five out of 10 Republicans and six out of 10 Independents support such a measure.
“NPR said the recent mass shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead and 15 wounded last month called for a new look at American perspectives on gun control. The news outlet noted concern over gun-related violence typically surges after high-profile shootings.”
This could be an indication that the American people are finally waking up to the utter incompetence of our government, as evidenced by the ridiculous reaction of the Broward County Sheriff’s department in this particular case, and realizing that the only way to protect their families and freedom is to be armed.
