Everybody knows I watch MSNBC and Morning Joe every day so I tend to see what MSNBC reports, it has been all “guns are evil” all the time.
I quoted Glenn’s story from last week about the mother who with 6 shots and 5 hits failed to kill the attacker who pursued her and her children to an attic crawl space and wondered aloud why it wasn’t covered but I found an earlier story much more interesting: Here is the video
Here is a quote from a blog post on it:
When momma’s got a gun and her two daughters can quickly lay their hands on a butcher knife and an axe, you’ve become the very definition of “failure in the victim selection process.”
If you make it too expensive and too difficult for mama to get that gun then her house is transformed from a “failure in the victim selection process” to as Larry Corriea calls it: “hunting preserves for innocent people”
There are interesting quotes in the story as well:
Lewis told the station one of the responding police officers said it would have been a different situation if she hadn’t been armed.
“One of them said we would be writing up a different report if she had not had that gun,”
“There’s so much talk about banning guns and gun control but they’re for protection,” she said. “There’s no way that I could have fought him off.”
Interesting points, but to me the most interesting thing I see from the story and video above is the lower left hand corner of this screen shot:
This is an NBC affiliate, that means that whoever at NBC is in charge of screening local shows for promotion decided that this particular story was not worth promoting nationally, particularly during an election year.
I submit and suggest that there are plenty of these stories. I further suggest that networks have for years made a decision to suppress their own affiliate stories if they are contrary to their message on guns.
Move along, nothing to see here, cue Frank Drebin:
