Thread: Was this absolutely necessary?

  1. Was this absolutely necessary?

    Read this article and you'll understand exactly how the media gets people unnecessarily riled up over false facts...if you didn't already.

    No, it's more media hype.

    Just watched an interview with the Henderson Co. Sheriff on WLOS, and he said "rifle or long gun". Also said that he had just apparently been released from custody. So much for gun laws keeping us safe.

    I still have no clue how gun laws keep us safe.

    Gun laws are like a fart in bed. They may make you feel better but they both stink.

    Yeah but I was specifically referring to the short bit about how the "AR-15 was originally designed for the armed forces". How was that in any way relevant to the report?

    The guy is dead, no details yet, but in a follow-up posting these Jackwagons are now reporting "Early reports are that Warren was armed with a long gun." Hopefully they got their phone line burned down and facebook flamed over their irresponsible but agenda driven false reporting.

    If it said that, it was wrong. The M-16 was designed for the armed forces; the AR-15 was a modification of the M-16 and was designed for civilian use. Period.

    I know, that was why I found it to be so amusing...totally irrelevant, and 100% WRONG.

    I misspoke in this post and corrected myself in a later post and the only reason I'm typing this is to meet the 15 character limit.

    Apparently the story got edited today after midnight. There is no mention about what gun was used in the article now.

    Could it be? Noooo... maybe? Professionalism in journalism? Oh, wait no... they deliberately put false information in... got people stirred up (look at the comments) then retracted it without mentioning what they retracted. That's not professionalism, that's trickery and cowardice.
