CBS News Wants Guns for Them.. But Not for You ~ VIDEO

Opinion

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I missed these details at first. A TV news crew was the victim of a recent robbery attempt. This was a video crew from the local CBS affiliate in San Francisco. The crew was protected by an armed guard. This is interesting because CBS condemned ordinary citizens for being armed. The network said it is unwise for you or me to have a gun for self-defense of our family while CBS protected their camera equipment with armed guards. I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning.

The camera crew was from the “gun free” bay area. The area is gun free in the sense that honest citizens living in the San Francisco bay area can’t get a license to carry a concealed firearm in public. When I checked, there were no concealed carry permits issued in San Francisco.. unless you were a judge or a politician. There is no concealed carry for you as you carry out the garbage or get your mail at the curb. No concealed carry as you work in your garage or in your garden. There are a few exceptions.

You can carry in your garden if you live like Speaker Nancy Pelosi and your garden is inside your multi-million dollar walled mansion in San Francisco. In San Francisco, you’re not supposed to have a loaded gun in your home unless it is strapped to your side. Hollow point ammunition is only for the police, but not for you when you’re protecting the people you love.

Your armed guards can be armed, but you may not be. Federal guards protect Speaker Pelosi. Hired guards protect the CBS News camera equipment.

I can’t help but notice that CBS didn’t send armed guards to protect their individual reporters and staff when they traveled to gather reports with a notepad. They sent guards to protect their crews when they traveled with expensive camera equipment. News crews get robbed in the bay area fairly frequently. Too bad that the network’s concern didn’t extend to ordinary citizens getting robbed on the street every day.

CBS is biased in the stories they select.

  • CBS News said guns were too dangerous for us to use..even though over a hundred million of us are armed. CBS reported that armed civilians are a danger..even though 20 million of us have our concealed carry permits.  Those are easily ascertainable facts, but as far as I can tell, CBS never found a gun they didn’t want to ban.. except for the guns they hire.
  • CBS said that we need more government research after “senseless gun violence”. CBS failed to report the data collected by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention that showed millions of us use our legally owned guns in self-defense each year. That research doesn’t fit the story CBS wants to tell.
  • CBS said that gun prohibition saves lives. They didn’t tell you that the statistical study they cited falls apart if you extend the data by one year. They didn’t tell you about the larger studies that show criminal ignore gun laws. Why would a news organization hide that information?

The network is biased in their description of those stories. CBS calls it needless gun violence when we protect our families. The network would have to call it asset protection when they defend their camera equipment. CBS tells the news they want and ignores the news that doesn’t fit their narrative. That means what CBS says isn’t really news, now is it.

We teach firearms owners that the only time they should use a gun is to stop an immediate threat of death or great bodily injury. That doesn’t cover camera equipment.

I can’t trust a news organization that has one set of rules for them and another set of rules for us.

    1. As mentioned it seems the bodyguard may have illegally fired to protect property but even more glaring is the unequal protection under the law that seems to have occurred.

      Would law enforcement have been as interested in the theft of a fancy wristwatch?

    2. At the beginning of the video I noticed an effective technique , the rapid fire male/female/male/female reporting, I believe was perfected by either radio Moscow or Havana. The news style was reported by U.S. science reporters , in the sixties, as developed by information specialists because it’s very effective. Guess where it was developed? Both KGB and CIA.

    3. Did the training and received my Ohio permit this year. The article is correct in saying that we are trained that under no circumstance can you shoot somebody trying to steal your personal (or in this case, company) property. Even if you catch them red-handed walking toward the door with your big screen TV, you shoot them, you go to jail. Either CBS AND the guards they hire are totally ignorant of this, or they are betting on a different set of rules being applied to them since they very reliably carry water for the democrats. My guess is the latter.

    4. This is what passes for “news” these days.
      The media loves to report on themselves as victims when they are attacked by criminals but how many true victims are covered on the day to day violence in Oakland, Chicago, LA, San Fran and the other Communist (excuse me I meant Democrat) -run cities?

    5. All I want from the MSM is honest news reporting. I think they used to call it ‘journalsim’. Today it’s simply propaganda. Trump is right, the media is the enemy of the people when they stray into politics, attempting to shape public policy with biased reports.

        1. So nice to have someone correcting the grammar here. I guess you’ve got nothing better to do with your life. Maybe you ought to get a life instead of being an a$$ and trying to make other live up to your dream. Give the guy a break. I’m sure others have given you breaks in your life.

    6. Here is the explanation. Progressives believe your life is not worth living hence not worth defending. This applies to 95% of the population. Progressives are often shocked when they learn that their masters do not count them as part of that elite 95%. If you are not inner party you don’t count.

      1. The majority of the progressives think they are going to find themselves at the top of the heap. They will be surprised to learn they are only useful idiots to the headmasters as they feel the pain from the jack boots on their person.

    7. These people are absolutely oblivious, but at least they are arrogant to make up for it.
      “ We go into some pretty dicey neighborhoods and so we have armed security”. Well cupcake, what about the people who live in those neighborhoods, cannot show “good cause”, probably don’t have the means or resources to go through the permit process anyway. Where is their armed security? It is amazing how smug and clueless these liberal nit wits can be. Stand up people, we are outnumbered, and they are coming to take your guns.

      1. Certainly not oblivious. That implies they are simply misinformed or naive. No. CBS and the rest of the MSM is actively and intentionally working to deprive all non-elite Americans from our fundamental rights that are protected by the 1st, 2nd, 4th and beyond.

      2. Very good observation… This was my exact thought. How smug for the elitist news anchor to say they sometimes have to go into dicey neighborhoods (kinda racist comment) with armed security. But are completely oblivious to the self defense of the poor folks living in said neighborhood.

    8. AOC is feeling kinda picked on by Fox News.. Poor thing..
      It seems she doesn’t like answering questions about her own hypocrisies, ie: eating hamburgers, riding in a taxi, flying on jets, instead of public transit, etc…

      1. Walking or riding their bikes to and in Washington DC. LOL!…
        Speaking out of all their orfices…
        Noise without facts…
        Dangerous crowd…

        1. The Fox News report stated she has taken ~1,000 taxi rides, instead of the subway.. The subway was 138 feet from her office… Looks like another raw deal, not green!

    9. As CBS aka Commicrat Broadcast System is a proud member of the Commiecrat propaganda wing of the party if not for hypocrisy and fabrication,what would they have.
