U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Katie Couric is facing a $12 million defamation suit for her unprofessional edits to responses given from members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League for use in her documentary, “Under the Gun”.
Couric and the films director, Stephanie Soechtig, made the decision to omit direct responses to a simple question concerning background checks in order to depict the VCDL as being caught in an awkward silence.
The propagandist (Couric), asked the group: “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
From the documentary the members of the VCDL appear at a loss for words, staring down at the ground in complete silence for eight seconds. Released audio tapes show the reality of the interview. The group had nearly two hours of reasoned, factual, and incisive pro-gun commentary, that repeatedly dispatched Couric’s B.S. liberal arguments. The audio from the actual interview is thoroughly entertaining, definitely more than the actual documentary could be.
Although Couric’s interview with the Virginia Citizens Defense League lasted for nearly two hours, she used hardly any of the footage in her documentary. This was because the group so thoroughly refuted each of her questions.
Ultimately her decision to purposefully edit responses to create a scenario that was entirely untrue. The point being to manipulate viewers into seeing a pro-gun group being unable to defend the argument against background checks. But, as anyone who understands gun laws knows, background checks are a joke. In accordance with this knowledge the VCDL laughed at the stupidity of Couric’s question about felons or terrorists buying a gun in the absence of background checks.
The only people affected by background checks and any gun legislation is a law abiding citizen. Felons and terrorists will use whatever they can to inflict damage, it does not matter to them. That fact is indisputable, just look at the use of knives and pressure cookers this weekend alone.
The Virginia Citizens Defense League rightfully explains to Couric that the only people affected by background checks are the ones following the law.
