    Default AN issue that needs to be addressed regarding our media being propagandists

    We need to start speeking up publically as gun owners and 2nd supporters. because our silence is causing us to lose our rights due to the way media has become propagandists instead of journalists. Our reliance on the NRA to do our speeking for us is having a determental effect now that those propagandists have demonied the NRA and spread unconfirmed falsehoods like the gun industry is running the NRA. And the NRA is at fault for the mass shootings etc.

    The alt left have got a wonderful stratagy because we stay silent. The alt left been redefining definitions in order to stoop the vast majorty of dem moderates that make up the bulk of the dem party. It is just a minority that is pushing the whole dem party.

    Things that need to be addressed is the manipulation of mass shooting definitions etc. False representation by claiming "common sense gun laws" red flag laws etc.
    Exposing the false flag antigun grassroots for what they really are fronts for a couple of billionair philaphortist, and brady campaign and its offshoots. like everytown and moms against gun violence etc.

    We are losing because of our silence. We can't just stay silent. and hope it will blow over. Hasn't anyone noticed how the media drags mass shootings out untill the next one happens ? in order to give the false impression that its an ongoing eppidemic of catastrophic proportions?

    Example I read a mainstream article for the push to force CDC to do Gun violence studies and that a certain bill stops CDC from doing the studdies. While ignoring the fact that it was brady campaign and etc that were pushing a politically biased narrative with a predefined outcome for the research to which the CDC was performing before that law was put in place to stop.

    We need to get off our posteers and show the average joe the actual facts as to why that law was put in place to stop false flag studies due to proccess being predetermined planned outcome against guns.

    I could go on but I am preaching to the quire. My point here is the way we did things in the past by sitting on the sidelines not being personally active and allowing other people to do the work, Like NRA. won't work anymore the alt left and anti gunners have retooled in a manor as to fool the average ignorant joe on the street. By manipulating termonology and outright distorting facts.

    It is a great idea. Only problem is that the left owns 90 percent of the media.
    Hard to get our point of view out there for the other side to see.
    Ignorant people just listen and believe the stories about us that they hear on CNN MSNBC ect.
    Today's journalists seem to have all graduated from the Joseph Goebbels school of journalism

    The CDC is forbidden by law from studying gun violence as a health issue.

    The ban comes from the NRA as surrogate for the gun industry.

    I say let the CDC do its job just as it does with other health concerns.

    Americans do not benefit from lack of information.

    You'd have a hard time proving that 90 percent of the media is owned by the left.

    Fox News is a strong leader in the 24/7 space. Those you mention are far behind.

    Also, "media," nowadays includes "social."

    ABC News on TV uses YouTube as a source for 1/2 of it evening presentation. It's cheap. No need for reporters and stuff.

    For mass shootings and the like, "citizen reporters," attract the eyeballs.

    Notice that audio/visuals are coming from smartphones on the scene. Those people are ducking for life and the only "left or right" leaning is toward a god that they hope won't allow them to be killed.

    The word is out there, but the mass shooters are the representatives with the huge megaphone.

    The ban doesn't come from the NRA. The NRA is what you'd call a Non-Government-Organization, or NGO. They have no power to ban anything. The ban is self-inflicted but done so for good reason.

    The CDC, or Center for Disease Control and Prevention is charged to control and prevent disease. Lead-poisoning is not a disease. Any previous attempts to classify gunshots as a disease were purely politically motivated and so [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and remain focused on actual diseases.

    In 1996, the Republican-majority Congress threatened to strip funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention unless it stopped funding research into firearm injuries and deaths. The National Rifle Association accused the CDC of promoting gun control. As a result, the CDC stopped funding gun-control research — which had a chilling effect far beyond the agency, drying up money for almost all public health studies of the issue nationwide.

    Disease

    Particular Abnormal Condition
    A disease is a particular abnormal condition that negatively affects the structure or function of part or all of an organism, and that is not due to any external injury.
    There are lots of good studies from DOJ (though very few during the Obama administration) on gun violence. There's no lack of information.

    Never considered gun violence a health issue. I can't get sick from a gun. Just like deaths from car accidents are not health issues.
    The gun grabbers would like to make it a health issue, but it is not.
    As far as the left controlling most of the media.
    Take all the network news, newspapers, Google, Facebook, most all of cable news except for lonely Fox news which I don't consider conservative but more of an outlet which shows both sides a little more than most. Throw in Hollywood and yes I would say that the media is somewhat one sided.

    here is the real reason guns are a health issue in the medical field. From a doctors persective: its related directly to suicide. And guns being the most succesful meathod of achieving it. Along with accidental shootings. They determined that suicide was a mental health issue and thus a public health concern. But then brady and such grabbed that and added gun murder into the mix as a injury and death issue.



    CDC also study injury and death prevention.



    There have been gun related studies since this ammendment was enacted. Where they could collect facts etc and present them to congress. to help congress shape laws. But the research could not be biased (which is why the ammendment was emplaced.). like only reporting injuries and deaths but failing to report all the instances where the guns saved a life or more in a defensive action.

    problem is the folks that were submitting studies to CDC for funding where demonstrating pre-bias and was aiming for a very anti gun outcome rather than going where the facts take you both for and against or inconclusive..

    Also this from same source
    In a 2016 article in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] on the impact of the Dickey Amendment, Rosenberg says: “It was the leadership of CDC who stopped the agency from doing gun violence research ... Right now, there is nothing stopping them from addressing this life-and-death national problem."[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] As the article notes this assertion runs counter to the "conventional wisdom" of the Dickey Amendment "as blocking the agency [i.e. the CDC] from conducting research on firearms deaths and injuries."[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    I did the bold italic underline
