  • Fairness in the press

    Yesterday thousands of gun owners took to the street in peaceful protest to fight for Virginians rights under the 2nd amendment. The press reported that though peaceful the government was worried that it would be like the white supremacist rally in Charlotte in 2017. There were even quotes from Antifa that they were not going to attend, all this to make gun owners look like crackpots and lump those law abiding citizens in with racist and anarchist ! The men and women who rallied yesterday in Richmond ..... my thanks you did it right and should have made all America proud !

    If Antifa didn't show up, no reason not to be peaceful!
    Good job VCDL!

      The MSM will always be Left leaning. It is comprised of a lot of young women who, by their nature, want to be taken care of. Free stuff like health care, day care, education, food stamps are all at the top of their list. I am tired of seeing the fat ass women using their food stamps with their $30 manicure and $75 dollar hair doo or $400+ hair straightening, and parking in the handicapped parking when they are perfectly capable of walking. They really work the system, generation after generation. Trump is right when he says immigration based on merit.
      Gun owners in Richmond were a good representation of gun owners everywhere. Stand up for your 2nd amendment rights and vote Conservative/Republican from top of the ticket all the way down the ticket. What is going on today is a prime example why down ticket races are SO important. Keep yourself informed.
      Just one arrest in Richmond, a woman refused to take her mask off - people are photographed during the rally so no masks allowed.

        All those guns and not one fired itself!!!! How could that many black guns congregate without killing anyone!! Has the media got an answer? No chainsaw bayonets visible at the march tho...

          The entire Virginia gun issue is a trap being perpetrated by the legislature ! They know darn well that pro gun groups will fight this push to control guns, and in doing so there will be demonstrations that will cause conflicts. Also these demos will be joined by radical groups and make all gun owners appear to be from the same cut of cloth ! The 2A is being put into a very dangerous position by defending itself and that issue is being used by the Virginian politicians ! I have faith in the true gun rights proponents, but it will be difficult for the general populace to distinguish them from the radicals who will give gun rights a false premise ! Even in our attempts to protest this legislation, we are playing into the hands of the anti-gun crowd and they know it ! We must not allow it to become a no win situation !!

            I can't help but notice that the media recognizes that other states have laws against black guns. What they don't mention is that there is massive non compliance even in supposed heavily Democratic states such as NY. Democrats can pass draconian laws, but they haven't found a way to get millions of citizens to obey them!

                Jimbo most of the press is left leaning like by young women because they are the only ones who will write for a buck a word or less. So many newspapers and magazines have gone out of business, no guy that wants to support a family can afford to write. I follow quite a few journalists, it's amazing what they say on their twitter feed. I'm always criticizing sources for this very reason. No one should want to be spoon fed what they want to hear. Good writing should challenge your ideas honestly.

                  I didn't know that newspaper reporters were paid by the word.
                  I suppose the editors are paid by the number of words deleted.

                    Rock Rat you make some valid points but when does common sense hit these young people who are writing , reporting are tweeting the events . How can the press report the news wrong and get away with it? How can a governor declare that state of emergency for law abiding citizens because he fears violence . The world is upside down . When the man or woman who believes and lives by the constitution, laws of the land and contributes to this union be the one who is feared? When did peaceful protest get lumped in with anarchy ? Riots paralyzing cities , Antifa wearing mask and creating civil unrest ,chaos more like it but the people can’t see thousands of weapons on the street in Richmond and not ask why not one shot was fired or one crime committed? It just proves the point without question legal ownership of firearms is not the problem in this country and why are we not focusing on what is ?

                      “......why are we not focusing on what is......”?

                      Basically it is virtually impossible to center the focus of the large problem in this country. That being due to the accusations of ‘racism’, ‘sexism’ and Islam phobia ! Liberals have cast a curtain of criticism on all aspects of these issues, there now being no way any information except ‘praise’ is to be mentioned ! Racism should not be a factor in our society, but also when points are discussed about issues, racism should not be used to shut the conversation down and belittle the speaker either, this being a favorite trick of liberals. Anything they do not wish to hear is met with a racist attack. The other even bigger problem is a liberal news media which disseminates very slanted liberal views, and when the less educated portions of this country hear these issues, there is not much though that goes into subjective thinking, all is taken as truth, even though wrongly so ! News is too important an issue to be allowed to have bias involved ! With an impeachment process which is 100% dimwit oriented and can now be a yard stick to measure future such actions, this country is on a terrible downhill slide. Rules of impeachment were to be bipartisan and not at the wish of one party !

                            Except for the MSM, rock rat. They spoon feed you what THEY want you to hear.
                            Accosta, Maddow, Stelter, Blitzer, Matthews, Cuomo, et al.
                            CNN has been siphoning sewage so long, their "validity" is just so much bilge water.
                            The other main streams ABC, CBS and NBC are no better.
                            The New York Slimes is just toilet fodder.

                            It's really sad when you have to listen to Limbaugh and Hannity et al for "news"!
                            They aren't journalists or reporters. They're "talk show" hosts fer chrissakes!
                            ...but they're the only ones who are truthful!
