Media Uses Fake Guns from HALO to Criticize Assault Weapons

Media Uses Fake Guns from HALO to Criticize Assault Weapons

Original Story by: S.H. Blannelberry

Joe Eskenazi, a columnist for SFWeekly.com, took a lot of heat from several members of the gun community for his decision to use a picture of Rambo and a picture of guns from the videogame HALO to make a point about a lawsuit over the clarity, or lack thereof, of California’s Assault Weapon ban.

And now, my take:

Reporters should be banned from writing stories on topics with which they have zero experience. If a reporter is assigned to do a story, they have the responsibility to become aware of the issues as well as the facts before turning in their piece.

Having fired a great many real assault weapons, up to and including grenade launchers, true machine guns (light, intermediate, and heavy), and heavy sniper rifles, I can say with confidence that nothing like that is available at Gander Mountain. But they should be. Okay, maybe not the grenade launchers.

The liberal media bias against all private gun ownership is a nonsensical belief that Big Brother will protect us from all harm. The very meaning of the word “liberal” is at odds with that belief. When Gary Hart dreamed up the Department of Homeland Security and George W. Bush signed the so called Patriot Act, it had nothing whatsoever to do with international terrorism. Its only reason for being is to allow the State’s terrorizing its own citizens with minimal resistance. It is designed solely to prevent domestic unrest that could lead to, well, the fall of the Federal government from within.

Some would look at the faked assault weapon story as a singular anomaly. It is a symptom of a disease known as simple-mindedness. It is incurable and it is terminal.

Someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist”.. . . Complete Article

 U.S. one bill away from totalitarian rule

By Sherwood Ross

December 8, 2011

The grim face of totalitarianism is emerging in the National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA) now before Congress.This bill is the last mile post on America’s sad, well-traveled road to the butcher shop of dictatorship. We have been headed that way for some time and, with a little help from Congress, we’ll arrive there shortly, putting an ugly end to the American experiment. The Senate December 1st passed the bill by a vote of 93-7. . . Continue
