A good deal more press about shootings and “Gun nuts gone wild” and “Gun nuts who have a beef with the government” which is all part and parcel of the media message.
Meanwhile, back in Chicago, and St Louis, and Compton, and Detroit, people keep getting murdered every day, and there is NO PRESS ON IT because they are brown. Could it be that the press doesn’t care about brown people? That can’t possibly be the case, can it?
There was a time when it took a good deal of extra effort to be a black man doing anything. You had to be better than anyone else in almost every way. This gave us people like Ben Carson, and Carl Brashier (Both portrayed in their biopics by Cuba Gooding Junior, by the way, and both excellent movies).
The tables have turned. Now Gunnies are the new opressed class, and each time one does something stupid, we all are painted with the same bloodstained brush.
This will not get better. As the government pressure on gunnies increases, there will be more and more of this, and it will be used as more incentive to disarm us. We must all be on our best behavior with our guns and with our mouths. yes, we know statistically we’re the safest people on earth, yes we know statistically that a swimming pool is thousands of times more dangerous than the average gunnie, but the media doesn’t care about us anymore than it cares about all those brown people that die everyday, because it does not fit their narrative. Be the best you can be, in every possible way. And be that every day. Teach people by your example what they will never learn from the Media.
