Nothing to See Here: “There’s no way I could have fought him off”

Nothing to See Here: "There's no way I could have fought him off"

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,”

and this:

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:

nbc13

NBC

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.

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,”

and this:

“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:

nbc13

NBC

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.
