PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
We have crime in the streets. Blacks are murdering other blacks in huge numbers in their own neighborhoods. There was a shooting in a town 1,000 miles away from where you live today, read all about it. Gun crime is a national problem. A mentally ill person killed some other person today, somewhere. Congress refuses to enact more gun laws. The NRA is defying all logic and preventing anything good from getting done. 92% of all Americans support a bill proposed by Nancy Pelosi, which must be true, since she mailed this fact to millions of people in a fund-raising letter. Nothing good with guns happened all year.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Americans Unaware Of Dramatic Drop: The U.S. Dept. of Justice and Pew Research Center have issued studies confirming that crime involving firearms, as well as violent crime in general, has dropped dramatically in the last two decades, even as the nation's population and firearms ownership has increased.
Yet, the American public believes crime is rising. Only 12% of Americans surveyed correctly replied that crime has been significantly reduced in the last 20 years, as opposed to 56% who thought it was higher.
If you think the media's constant drumbeat has no effect you're a fool. Failure to accurately report what's going on manipulates the public and harms the nation.
