The Media has Reached an Agreement on Guns, Not the Senate

The Media has Reached an Agreement on Guns, Not the Senate. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- If the legacy media had their way, your front door would explode and seconds later you’d be hip-deep in armed gun-grabbers delivering high-caliber butt-strokes to your noggin until you surrendered the combination to your gun safe. That is the level of anti-gun bias today’s legacy media uses whenever they report on anything related to guns or the Second Amendment. Their recent stories on developments in the Senate are no exception to this rule.

“The Senate has finally reached an agreement on guns,” a CBS news actor breathlessly announced Monday morning. Except the Senate hasn’t reached any agreement. Ten Republican Senators have agreed in theory to back a gun-control framework, which is lightyears away from agreeing to support an actual gun-control bill.

Once again, the legacy media is way ahead of the actual story. Once again, they are reporting what they want to happen, instead of what actually happened. Rather than reporting the truth, today’s media consistently pushes its own agenda, which in this case is their belief we need more gun control.

To be clear, a bipartisan group of 20 Senators – 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats – led by Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), announced yesterday their support for a proposal, which is not a bill.

According to a press release from Murphy’s office, the proposal is “a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country.”

“Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities,” Murphy said in the statement. “Our plan increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons. Most importantly, our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law.”

You can read the full text of Murph’s proposal, as well as which Senators have announced their support, here.

Is this development concerning to those of us who value our God-given constitutional rights? Yes, it certainly is. However, we do not yet know what provisions of the proposal will be included in the bill, or even if there will be an actual bipartisan bill.

The National Rifle Association said as much in a statement released Sunday night:

“As is our policy, the NRA does not take positions on “frameworks”. We will make our position known when the full text of the bill is available for review. The NRA will continue to oppose any effort to insert gun control policies, initiatives that override constitutional due process protections and efforts to deprive law-abiding citizens of their fundamental right to protect themselves and their loved ones into this or any other legislation.” ​

While some of the concepts contained in the Senators’ proposal are likely unconstitutional, it is a proposal, not legislation, at least not yet. We need to monitor developments closely and keep in contact with our elected representatives. While the gun banners are celebrating wildly while the cameras roll, do not fall victim to the media’s spin. That, friends, is exactly what they want. They survive solely on clicks and ratings. Do not feed the media beast.

The Left is completely afraid of what might happen to them if America’s gun owners get fed up with them. And for them the best defense is a strong offense. Duh! Nancy Pelosi allowed Jan6th to happen to exhibit the mindset of Trump supporters, and kill stwo birds with one stone, get us to forget #DJT, and think about what would have ahppened if the rioters were in fact armed. You don’t really believe that the Left’s political interest lies with reducing mass shootings. Hell no! If it did, “stop-n-frisk” would be the law of the land!! If they cared… Read more »

She denied the National Guard because it would have messed up their trap. It was all set up from the beginning. I am almost positive that there were insiders from alphabet agencies there that were helping get the peaceful protest rolling. I know antifa was there because I watched them change clothes in a corner right after they instigated the riot and MAGA supporters don’t wear all black, carry skateboards and have back packs on. They haven’t seen an insurrection and there will never be one because it will be a new civil war just like it was to end… Read more »

Never if it is left up to our government which controls them and uses them to promote and support their agenda. Think of the new disinformation agency created by the disinformation king president that wants to control the media. Last time the media was under total control of the government, Hitler ruled the land.

The “legacy media” is nothing more than the PROPAGANDA arm of the DemoKKKrat NAZI party. What they SPEW is 99% FALLACY and ERRONEOUS CONJECTURIZATION aimed at “fulfilling” their communist agenda! Need proof? Look what they are spewing about Nasty Nancy and Shmucker!

The problem here is that it’s not just Democrats. Half of the republicans in office now aren’t any better. Politicians don’t fix problems, they create them.

They spent months celebrating the actions of domestic terrorists in several cities around the country and then got bent out of shape over January 6th. They’re yelling about how violent it was and calling it an “insurrection” and their lapdog media is helping them. Had it been an insurrection, things would be drastically different now….

musicman44mag

Amen.

The media has become nothing more than a spin cycle propaganda machine for the Democrats . Not one bit of truth comes from these commie clowns anymore . MSM = zero credibility. Tune these idiots out with the remote and let thier lies fall on deaf ears .

Laddyboy

Wait a miniscule minute! They are correct about the rain 30% of the time. Otherwise, they LIE a HUGE AMOUNT of time!

Have you ever seen another job where you get paid if you are wrong or right? I haven’t.

Should be a constitutional amendment that no government employee outside the president and four successors gets government protection. They should live with the consequences of the system they built. Violence and intimidation is all part of the Democratic plan! Gun control does nothing to stop violence. We need criminal control not gun control.The absence of morality that is the problem democrats are using crimes committed by criminals with guns to further their agenda of totally disarming all of us. Question for democrats: If guns are the problem, and not people, explain to me how everyone in Vermont isn’t dead? Constitutional… Read more »

I agree 100%percent. Wake up people before it is to late.

musicman44mag

Oh, I love how you made that point. That is an excellent arguement.

Finnky

SCOTUS should also be protected. At moment anti-gun rights nuts are gunning for the court in order to “teach us how dangerous guns are”. They are higher profile than all but a few other members of government and their innocent families are being targetted.

Arny

“reduce the threat of violence across our country.” LMAO Yeah they tried that in the Middle East for the last couple decades. How did that pan out ? We already know they are willing to spill innocent blood for the criminals. More of a reason to stay armed & ready with that scary black gun.

Bill

Strange how none of their “common sense “ stuff would not stop the problem, but cause others!

uncle dudley

Nothing that comes out of congress is commonsense, come on man.

Laddyboy

ESPECIALLY the current DemoKKKrat NAZI controlled CON-gress!!!

musicman44mag

Spot on.

Orion

this agreement, while modest in scope and far less intrusive than Pelosi’s draconian House bill, is far from over. let us see the final complete proposal.

Arny

You got to pass it to see what’s in it. lol

JSNMGC

Sounds like something an NRA board member would write.

Stag

No doubt. Butters and Fudds are cancer.

john

Not one word on prosecuting those that break the law and head out to kill others. The government wants more rules not justice for those dead. There are now those that have conceded to a one party government both republicans and democrats. We have elections for a reason what we have learned is that process is now tainted and those who are progressive on both sides of the isle can no longer be trusted. The discussion should be the death penalty will be in effect forward if the state in question fails to comply. The charge will be a hate… Read more »

How would they be able to use the mentally insane defense ?
