For those of us living outside the main-stream-media (MSM) bubble, we often hear about responsible gun owners saving lives and stopping criminals.
Yet there are many within in the MSM bubble that never hear or even have a clue that gun owners responsibly save lives with firearms.
From Gun Owners of America:
“According to a Centers for Disease Control statistic, “firearms are used far more often to save life” by a ratio of 16 to 100 times more often. Yet the mainstream media doesn’t report this. They also don’t report on the numerous incidents of responsible gun owners stopping crimes from being committed.”
The article also goes on to point out the statistics of other methods that have led to death and are never highlighted by the media.
It’s the typical bias of the media to only pick one side of the gun debate and focus solely on the negatives guns can bring if used improperly.
Multiple times a day, you can find reports on how a law-abiding citizen with a gun stopped a criminal. It’s time the stigma of the MSM gun fear mongering comes to an end.
