The Right to Bear Arms Isn’t Political It’s Practical

In between all the news, all the media and all the press surrounding gun control there are real lives being affected.

In the midst of all the agendas, suits, slants and arguments there is real crime and homes that need protection.

We have said this before (and we could say it here yet again), that for whatever curious reason, news about guns saving lives just doesn’t seem to make headlines.

Earlier this month on the evening of April 12, there was another report of an attempted break-in halted by a gun owner.

This time the story took place in the San Fernando Valley.

According to the report, three would-be robbers met a homeowner and his shotgun.

The story said that the owner heard glass breaking sometime after 10 p.m.

They proceeded to get their firearm and then confronted the intruders.

After shots were fired the criminals fled.

That is quite the harrowing story isn’t it, but you have probably read and heard about it on the news several times already, right?

Well, you probably just missed it or didn’t catch the news that day.

That story sounded a little like another thwarted break-in attempt but this time the homeowner didn’t miss. In fact, three of the five suspects who were hit did not survive.

This report came out of Houston.

Wait, you didn’t hear about that incident either where a gun was used to protect a home once again?

Sure, that was all the way back in late January though, so you probably just forgot. Certainly, you heard about that incident just last week, when a gun owner stopped a break-in while on the phone with 911, didn’t you?

What, you mean that you haven’t heard about all these recent stories?

How is that possible? You watch the news, right? Some of us still even read a newspaper (albeit likely a digital copy).

So what exactly is going on?

We have a few possible options to consider.

The major networks and mainstream media thrive on blood, violence, and tragedy.

All we have to do is look at the biggest hit movies and the most popular videos today.

Sex, violence, and death… it still sells.

Yes, you are right.

This is still about the “news” though so it has to be different, doesn’t it?

The answer is yes and no. These stories about real news, about homeowners defending themselves from attackers, do get reported.

They are almost always picked up by the local affiliate stations.

The local papers will most definitely run a story, perhaps even two.

Strangely, however, that is as far as these types of story lines ever get.

Every newspaper, network and radio station has someone in charge.

That someone is also making the decisions about what story gets picked up, put where and on what page. They also decide what stories get buried.

That means that the major network players, the massive syndicates and mainstream media powers are choosing to not pick up these stories.

Media ratings are certainly a possible answer to why stories like these seemingly aren’t aired – ever.

There is also another possible reason, however, for why we aren’t seeing these stories of gun-wielding heroism. It is no secret that there are strong influences and great wealth behind many television and media outlets.

We also know where many of those powers stand on the gun control issue.

Maybe it wouldn’t be good for certain agendas if such positive stories of gun use were heard.

Perhaps if widespread fanfare was being promoted by airing the many many cases of similar account, it could result in dire consequences for gun restriction advocates?

In any event, it certainly wouldn’t benefit them.

Then we have the truth.

The truth is that we don’t really know, with any absolute evidence, why stories like these never reach mainstream America.

There is also another truth. When it comes to being able to defend our homes, protect our families and own guns, there shouldn’t be a fight.

This is more than a story about why so many reports of positive, live-saving, crime-preventing gun use go unheard. This story is also about more than the political agendas and influence on mainstream media.

This is about the Second Amendment, about our right to bear arms.

These reports of how a gun saved a life and prevented a crime don’t have to be aired on the major networks to make them true.

Stories of gun owner heroism don’t need to be shouted from every media outlet for them to reason enough, to illuminate truth.

This isn’t about power, money or politics.

This is about nothing more than being practical, about having the right to protect ourselves and our families. These stories, no matter how big the audience, are all about the right to bear arms.

  1. The NRA bears primary responsibility. As does its criminal leadership under Wayne LaPierre.

  2. My opinion is, money is more important to
    These types of people than any other product
    They are, of all people, the most stupi Nothing
    In this world is worth going to hell for, what one
    Believes of life after death has no bearing on what
    God has foreordained

  3. Research by economist John Lott has established lawful defensive use of firearms by Americans occur at LEAST 500, 000 times annually and likely closer to a million times plus. But, a dishonest media and political ruling class conspire to hide this reality. It is ironic, the Second Amendment to the U.S. constitution is the ONLY right affirmed in he constitution that is accompanied by the words: Shall Not Be Infringed” . Yet, this essential right is treated by the media like an illegitimate heir.

  4. The gun control mess has been created by an over reaching, tyrannical government that will do what it wants regardless of what our constitution states. The supreme court is at blame also.

  5. who’s to blame?…who instituted questionable methodology for the elimination of bump-stocks…or gave the go-ahead for “red-flag laws”…trump needs to look in the mirror…it was never this bad under obama….

  6. There was no reason to honor tiger woods, Trump could better spend his time putting an end to chemtrails, woods paid a big price for what he has done but why should the president honor him for anything, his pride will no doubt be his downfall again.

  7. The public should be more concerned with how the country is being run rather than Trump’s taxes. Pelosi hasn’t revealed hers, she doesn’t dare so she is after Trump to get the heat off her ass. she is more concerned with her under the table bribes for attempting to overthrow our government, they investigate her taxes and you will see she is nothing but a NAZI plant. Trump has wasted way too much time fighting the other party rather than arresting and trying and executing those traitors.

  8. I wish everyone can get a along we have gone to love evil and hate good we need to pick up the lamb of god

  9. Bull, We know that the Democratic party has made gun control its main issue. The Media is in League with the Democratic party. They cant have stories about people defending themselves hit the news. That is counter productive to their platform of taking guns away from the law abiding citizen. You see it all over on Social media where the Democratic party wants more and more gun control. You see their member preach that guns need to be taken away from the citizen.

    Pro gun People see that the 2nd amendment is being shredded by the Democrats and Democrat controlled states. California, Illinois, New York, Washington State and now Colorado are leading the Charge with other Democrat controlled states starting their gun control nonsense. Look at the states with the highest crime. These are states that violate the 2nd amendment daily.

    Democrats blame The NRA and other pro gun groups as the bad guys. They blame veterans and other law abiding citizens for them not having gun control. Obama claimed veterans were home grown terrorist. Democrats still think this about veterans. Democrats seek to ban senior citizens, the poor, veterans and other citizens from owning guns. They say that the citizen and the 2nd amendment is the biggest problem about gun control. We all knw what has happened in countries who took away citizens rights to owning guns. Many killed their citizens for some reason or another. whether it be race, religion, politics, or other reasons.

  10. Because the Socialist Dems and MSM only focus on the negative stories about Everything that’s why people think guns are bad.If it wasn’t for the right to bare arms America would already be a socialist or even a communist country.That’s what the looney left lunatics want total control.Some one tell them it ain’t gonna happen.

  11. The True problem occurred when the Federal Gov. mandated all States disband their State Militias in favor of the National Guard, which is mainly under control of the Federal Gov.
    The 2nd Amendment begins with “A Well-regulated Militia being necessary …”
    If every State Resident who desired to own a firearm also belonged to their State Militia, the populous would be well-trained & learn the responsibility of firearm ownership.
    The second misfortune is the unregulated type of firearms allowed to the populous.
    There is no need for the Citizenry to have Semi-automatic firearms. For every use, each citizen only needs a bolt-action, pump-action rifle, and revolver handguns.
    The ONLY reason the NRA & the firearm manufacturers have perpetuated the need for semi-automatic weapons is to counter & equal the firepower of the military & police.
    Now, it’s far too late to put the genie back in the bottle regarding semi-automatic firearms which have flooded the country. So, the next best solution to stopping crazed killers bent on murdering as many people, as quickly as possible is Ammunition control & magazine capacity.
    Each person who has passed a NICS background check should be issued another I.D. card which would permit them to purchase ammunition. They would simply show this ID card when purchasing ammunition, a Local background check would be performed to discover if any crimes or domestic abuse claims have been issued since passing the NICS check, preventing anyone who shouldn’t have access to a firearm to be unable to purchase ammunition. A Local background check would be as quickly obtained as when a police officer runs a person’s ID during a traffic stop. This would not inconvenience the buyer in the slightest. Honest & responsible firearm owners should agree that as a society we must take some types of action to reduce the multitude of mass-murders which have only increased year by year. I’m a multi-gun owner myself & I wouldn’t want my right to own firearms taken away but, we must admit that things have gotten out of hand, well beyond what Our Founding Fathers ever imagined when they wrote the 2nd Amendment. Let’s not fight amongst each other or semantics.
    Hunters, Target-shooters & Home Defense have no need for semi-automatic weapons of war.
    I beg, let us come together & find common-ground which as a society we can live within certain boundaries of responsible gun ownership.

  12. Ps. – Today, our hearts go to Douglas County, CO and the victims of the shooting today.

  13. Very confident article that highlights exactly what is transpiring in this country in order to pan to the wealthy or well connected individuals that have their own security teams, but want to leave us others to defend ourselves without the luxury of their security. Governor of NYS also quietly trying to destroy the NRA through the use of his political office – don’t see that in print in main stream media either.

  14. The constant attacks on the Second Amendment by the anti-gun establishment will continue until all Americans realize that this issue is not about guns but about power and the need to control everybody’s life. Eliminate the Second Amendment and soon ALL the other amendments will follow. Freedom is not free, we all have to stand up and defend it.
