De Bait Goes On

goffordsYou decide on whether the news is slanted against the Second Amendment. This article was front page of Pittsburgh’s “conservative” newspaper. Though it is an Adulterated Press (AP) story it ran in our paper without any attempt to get the facts straight. The use of the contrasting photographs should be enough to let you know which side the AP is on.  It would be very easy to take this bait.  I’d be willing to wager that AP offices have armed guards though they’re probably not armed with assault rifles. BTW Ms. Giffords was not shot with an assault rifle and there is a growing belief that assault rifles were not used in the Newtown school shooting as confirmed by NBC News on January 15, 2013.
