‘The Media Isn’t Being Honest About This’

Oddly Enough, the Data in This Viral Vid Has Been Left Out of the Gun Control Debate

Following the tragedy of the Newtown, Conn., shooting that left 26 people dead, including 20 children, there has been a lot of talk about increased gun control.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has reintroduced an expired “assault” weapons ban in the Senate, British CNN host Piers Morgan has made it his full-time job educating Americans on the dangers of firearms, and left-leaning filmmaker Michael Moore has pleaded with “frightened,” gun-loving Americans to resolve their “race” problems.

But here’s the thing: There are many facts and figures regarding violent crime in U.S. that have been left out of the debate on gun control. In fact, the data you’re not hearing about could make all the difference.

The following video from from Amidst The Noise entitled “Choose Your Own Crime Stats” tackles this exact issue.

“Does it not play into their fear agenda?” the narrator asks. “That, you know, you’re going to walk out your front door and get shot?”

He also notes that you can pinpoint where most of the crime is taking place, but when you try and bring that up nobody wants to listen. The implication? Instead of a national policy against guns, why aren’t we focusing on the problem areas?…

…“I’m a guy that lives in the country. I love America, but I’m concerned and I just wanted to let everyone know how I view the problems,” the video’s narrator, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told TheBlaze in an email.

“This is not just about guns. This is about a broken system. This is about a beacon of light that burned out long ago,” he adds.

So, you don’t think gun control is all about this, do you:

…The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters.  As the days wear on, the story takes wings.  The national media picks it up, then the international media.  The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.  Your attorney says the thief is preparing to sue you, and he’ll probably win.

The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you’ve been critical of local police for their lack of effort in apprehending the suspects.  After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be prepared next time.  The District Attorney uses this to allege that you were lying in wait for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial.  The charges haven’t been reduced, as your lawyer had so confidently predicted.

When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all works against you.  Prosecutors paint a picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.  It doesn’t take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.  The judge sentences you to life in prison.

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk, England, killed one burglar and wounded a second.

In April, 2000, he was convicted and is now serving a life term.  How did it become a crime to defend one’s own life in the once great British Empire?…

The timeline at Sandy Hook makes the point that if we expect the police to arrive in time to save us from a gunman, we’re deluding ourselves.

…Hey, you use your political muscle to bail out a few giant banks and those institutions, which you regulate, as well, quickly learn on which side their bread is buttered.  Imagine!

Welcome to liberal fascism.  Be a good subject and nobody gets hurt.
