Heres what I sent to them: Why was the result of the survey for concealed carry weapons brushed off with such quickness?? The reporter all but grit her teeth to give the result as though she was unhappy about it. Is your company anti gun because guns kill people? What about automobiles? People are killed in automobile crashes all the time. Should your company be against automobiles as well? Or, maybe ABC should look at the real cause. People. People pull the trigger on a gun, it does not discharge a bullet with its own free will. An automobile gets in a wreck because a person is behind the wheel and uses the automobile in an improper manner. But the cause of both effects are the people using the object. Why does no one put blame on the operator instead of the tool when someone is involved in what the media love to call "Gun Violence". When reporting a gun fatality it is always the guns fault. When reporting a traffic related fatality is the drunk driver, or the unrested truck driver, never is the automobile blamed for the damage it creates. What is being done in the media is disgraceful. The portrayal of gun violence is the guns fault, if there were no guns all the violence would disappear. Surely the person operating the weapon is at no fault because if they didn't have the weapon the violence would not have occurred. The media seems to want to take the responsibility of the people who do wrong away from the wrong doers and blame the tool, as long as the tool is a gun. thanks for the link to ABC!!! [beer]

Whenever something positive happens for guns and their owners, such as this poll, the media blows it off like I can't believe this sh*t, but when the figures are in there favor the blow up the poll and make it full screen during prime viewing hours during some "news special".[pissed]
