Brilliant! Media Finally Gets It Right

Quote:
But despite the massive news coverage, none of the media coverage, at least by 10 a.m. Thursday, mentioned this central fact: Yet another attack occurred in a gun-free zone.

Surely, with all the reporters who appear at these crime scenes and seemingly interview virtually everyone there, why didn’t one simply mention the signs that ban guns from the premises?
Quote:
The same was true for the attack at the Trolley Square Mall in Utah in February (a copy of the sign at the mall can be seen here). But again the media coverage ignored this fact. Possibly the ban there was even more noteworthy because the off-duty police officer who stopped the attack fortunately violated the ban by taking his gun in with him when he went shopping.

Re: Brilliant! Media Finally Gets It Right

None of the media guys can decide if it was an SKS or an AK-47. Every other article that I read says one or the other. I've even found one or two where they say it was one in the beginning and then say it was the other later in the article.

They're both old Ruskie assault rifles. I've shot them both, too.

Yes, I know, I was just commenting on that is how I heard it reported, which right now seems to be the most accurate lol
