The Washing Post wants you to send in your stories of gun violence for the Sandy Hook anniversary. It's pretty shitty for them to solicit stories of gun violence so they can use those stories to once again try to push for more gun control.

So, I think we all know what needs to be done here. There are many more stories of people using a gun to protect a loved one than there are of people being attacked with a gun. I say we inundate them with positive stories where people used a gun to protect themselves from violence.

Here is the link to the story... Click Here.

A liberal paper fact checking? Not a chance in hell. We have to post the stories to see what's in them.

Genocide against unarmed groups.

If we're counting how many guns we've lost, all of ARF's boating accidents totalled up would be in the millions.

i wonder if they'll do any stories about how much violent crime has dropped since the 90's or that even with Sandy Hook, the number of homicides involving rifles dropped in 2012?

How about sending in all 517 pages of the Fast and furious thread? Somehow one would have to guess that it would not quite be what they are looking for.

Someone with some time should send in all the stories from rationalityrebooted.com. That would keep them busy for a while.

Good idea. If anyone had their guns confiscated and returned by police, share it. Violence against our guns must never be tolerated. Speak up!

Here is Andrea Rebello killed by a Nassau County, NY police officer.
She was shot in the head after the officer responsed to a home invasion robbery.


Not a cop bashing post just that this kid died via gun violence and by a police officers bullet.

I will gladly share my story about how my friend was robbed at gun point at an ATM and as a result has purchased her own gun so that if it happens again she will fight back.

How 'bout the story where that one German guy confiscated all the guns from the Jews because the government was going to keep them safe.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 5:49:11 AM EST
If someone here posts this on /r/guns on Reddit or is on 4chan, it may be possible to script something that will submit a flood of entries. My assumption is that WP is going to receive relatively few anti submissions, so even if we hit this with legitimate submissions from Arfcommers, it should take them quite a lot of time to dig through. Like I mentioned before, though Rationality Rebooted seems to have dropped off the map recently, there should be enough stories on there to hit this pretty hard.

Wanna bet that Deputy National Digital Editor, Masuma Ahuja, will selectively edit and publish ONLY stories that further the Post's anti-Second Amendment agenda? Try sending in a story about one of the 2.5 million DGUs (defensive gun uses) that happen every year in the U.S. - and watch it disappear down the "memory hole" (i.e. - delete button).

From the link:

"We're interested in hearing stories from people whose lives have been personally impacted by gun violence. Share your story and it could appear on WashingtonPost.com. We will be in touch first; we understand these stories are often very personal.
Questions? Email the Post's deputy national digital editor, Masuma Ahuja, at masuma.ahuja@washpost.com. And for examples of how your responses could be used, check out the Post's "Gun Numbers" project."

Dear Washington Post,

A bad man with a gun (illegally acquired and possessed) tried to rob me. I shot him dead to protect my life liberty and property. The police called it a good shoot and everyone lived happily ever after. The end.

Nah, I know that.

But, I mean, if someone were to just make up a completely bogus story that happens to fit the Post's agenda, do you think they would actually run down some of the particulars or just run it on blind faith?

I guess I'm just wondering aloud what kind of journalistic integrity we're looking at here.


I'm NOT suggesting that anyone should make up a bogus story and send it in with the objective of embarassing them should they run it. I'm just wondering that if someone were to do that, do you think they'd catch it?
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 6:15:47 AM EST
There is a "guns save lives" site with over 1000 defensive gun use stories. We could probably each pick a couple and send them.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 6:23:13 AM EST
I think thats why this would be fun... Just spam the hell out of them with horrific gun violence from the point of view of criminals during a good shoot.

There I was stealing Jermaine's car, and wouldn't you know it, Jermaine came running out with his glock 40 and shot me in the leg. As I sat there in the booking room following my hospital visit, I just thought to myself, there was no reason for me to get shot. Jermaine shouldn't have been flaunting his hoopdie where I could see it. He was just axing for it to be stoled.

We should bombard them with stories of guns saving lives, and shutting down badguys.

You realize this is fake, right? They just want to stir up drama to get the readership. The fictional stories are already written and ready to be used.
