Editorial: Bottom line

  • Follow Editorials

Of all the pressing issues in this country today, why would the media want to expend so much energy on smearing legal gun ownership?

A North Carolina-based newspaper chain, Civitas Media, is building a state-by-state database on concealed-weapons permit holders, according to an internal email obtained by a state firearms association.

The company has not said if it actually will publish the database, which would be similar to the controversial project a New York newspaper carried out in 2012. But some gun-rights advocates believe Civitas wouldn’t go through the trouble of amassing data it doesn’t plan to use.

It might provide criminals a road map of homes to target and avoid. But really – where’s the value in gathering data on people engaged in this particular legal activity?

I read a follow up to the article...

I read a follow up to the article and the boss man squashed the idea and said it was just some brainstorming that sort of got out of hand. Whether or not that is true I don't know, it probably is since I read it on the internet.

This is why guns should be banned, 10,000 children hurt or killed EVERY YEAR by guns in the United States.

George Soros stated the

George Soros stated the United States is the biggest obstacle to the "new world order" or "one world order".

The BIGGEST problem to that is the ARMED CITIZENRY!! Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said "You can not invade America's mainland, there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

THAT, is what scares the left so bad!! Any person with common sense knows that criminals do NOT follow the law!! If you outlaw guns, outlaws will be the only ones with guns!! That's not just a saying, it's true!!

They can't get around that pesky 2nd Amendment, so they do the next best thing, restricting ammunition and attack the legal gun owners!! Their intentions are NOT honorable!!

This attack on legal gun ownership will continue and get worse!!

If these people are really

If these people are really compiling a list of legal gun owners, it brings to mind the Nazis Party and when they encouraged children to turn in their parents for so-called crimes against the state. There are many parallels with the Modern day liberal press along with the Obama Administration and the Nazi Party.
The BIG difference is that the American citizenry is armed. Marxist hate that aspect of American life and will use all their powers to remove that obstacle that threatens their ultimate goal, total control of the masses.

Do you know what the list identifying gun owners would do?

Do you know what the list of identifying gun owners would do? It would screen out the homes for the criminals in that they would know which homes to avoid. I'd be glad for them to know that I have multiple weapons and a CWP.

The liberals don't understand that the criminal preys on the weak and the criminal sees a non-gun owner as weak.

Or, deestafford, they just watch your house and burglarize it when you're not home, free guns are very attractive to criminals.

Criminals don't fear unoccupied homes, especially ones that they have checked out.

corgi, obviously most of the conservative gun owners are smarter than the folks you know. We protect our homes and our guns. Perhaps you should take a lesson about guns from a conservative gun owner, you might learn a lot, well maybe not.
