Off topic Sam. The title of this thread is ... "The stories the media **DOESN'T** tell you - **GOOD** guys with guns".

Anyone can find a story about irresponsible firearm owners ... because THAT IS ALL THE MEDIA REPORTS! Their agenda is in lock-step with the leftists running our country, and NY, CA, MD, NJ, & MA. Hence my motivation to start THIS topic.

What the hell is wrong with people leaving a loaded gun anywhere a child can get their hands on it. It is not the 4 yr olds fault or the fault of the gun. The owner of the rifle is 100% responsible.

Did you read the title of this thread Sam?

Start a thread titled "Dumbasses with guns" if you want but don't drift Smitty's thread with your libbbbeeeerrrraaaalll agenda and see how it goes.

Thread drift is bad manners and impolite.

And please don't even respond to this post as it will further drift the thread, respond via PM if you wish.

.................................

Now may we continue its original course, please?

Thanks Gekko.

Just want to add to Sam - if I want to see the "other" side of this, I will just tune into the MAINSTREAM NEWS MEDIA. That was my whole point of starting this thread. The MSM misses all these stories, and ONLY reports on all the negative ones. Why? Because they have an AGENDA.

I have an agenda too, but mine lines up with the agenda that the FOUNDERS of this Great Nation had - unlike the MSM, or our current White House resident & his administration.

The reason these stories don't get reported is because of the old journalistic saying, "Dog bites man is not news, but when man bites dog, that's news !

That's why you won't see much reporting of good, or everyday events in the news.

That is why we need to share and help spread the "Dog Bites Man" News

Actually it's rather sad as it turns out the victim was her neighbor that came home drunk in a cab & got dropped off at the wrong door (might have been one of those look alike developments) I guess he was trying his key in the lock & probably swearing to himself & didn't hear the lady who shot through the door, kind of sad since she said she saw the man but I guess didn't recognize him. The whole thing is one sad mistake but once fired those bullets can't be brought back. :cry:

I have an idea Sam. The person should be responsible enough so they are not so drunk they cause someone to think you are breaking in. I don't think you should have to ask " Hey are you drunk or are you here to rape and murder me"

I can see where this is going Flyer, did I say anything except it's a damn shame? I can see more & more that if you are liberal & aren't afraid to say so then your not welcome to post anything, IMO another thing that is :( . Sorry I posted a follow up I happened to come across.
