“Fake News” ? Advertising Disguised as News?

Subject: “Fake News” ? Advertising Disguised as News?

Miranda Viscoli should thank the Journal for its front-page advertising copy for her organization in the Sunday paper. What else to call the article titled “Youth and guns: A deadly mix” ?

Were any pro-Second Amendment organizations (NM Shooting Sports Association, NM Gun Collectors Assocation, Gun Owners of Mexico) contacted for this article? If not, WHY not?

From the article —

“Although anyone under 19 is barred from possessing or transporting a handgun in New Mexico, it’s clear many young people are ignoring the law.”

Imagine that — people willing to kill and maim others to get what they want won’t bother with filling out a Form 4473 with a federally-licensed gun dealer! Who would have expected that?

Anyone looking for loopholes in the gun laws need look no further.

Of course, none of this is stopping Keller from seeking $800,000 from the feds for a “Crime Gun Intelligence Center.” Because It Will Make A Difference (TM). So says Keller.

Nor is this stopping Viscoli from demanding more restrictions upon people who do NOT commit crimes with their firearms.

Never mind that statistics show that only 0.01% of firearms[1] are used for freelance criminal activity[2]. Viscoli is determined to infringe the liberty of the 99.99% of gun owners who do NOT commit criminal acts against other people.

As for the name of Viscoli’s organization — “New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence” (is this another Bloomberg-financed astroturf outfit?) — where can we find “New Mexicans to Prevent Knife Violence,” or “New Mexicans to Prevent Blunt-Object Violence”? Do these organizations (IF they exist at all) have Facebook Pages[3]?

Or is the very phrase “gun violence” designed to instill a fear of firearms in people who aren’t gun owners?

Y&T — Hang ‘Em High

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:12 AM (06:12)

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Like a tiger, move in for the kill
We’re gonna get what we need

We stand together, feel it closing in
Electric shock through our veins
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Soldier of fortune, always on the run
Your enemy lies within
You must escape from the shackles in your mind
Stand like a warrior and win

Join our ranks, there ain’t no losers here
As long as we never divide
We are a force so strong we never have to run
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky
