Almost 24 years ago a group whseemed be dividing their time between lobbyig for banning guns, and filling the media with propaganda asked Congress for money to “research gun violence.”
Of course, gun owners protested, project did not make it off the ground. And quite rightly so.
Allowing that group to “research research gun vioelence would have been at the same level as rushing out to find a Klaern of Klansman to judge minorities traffic citations.
Bit numbers of media outlets, including th once respectable Bemidji N, Pioneeer has jumped on the BBOOHOOHOO, they won’t let us research gun violence any more” bandwagon.
In fact, we gun owners would be more than happy to have a fair and unbiased study of gun laws and gun violence done.
But we will not recognize the product of a well known and easily recognized propaganda mill.
In this time of declining circulation, that is also something every editor and publisher should keep in mind.
