    I think I have had enough of local crime stories being elevated to National Stories.

    It makes me wonder what I am being diverted away from.
    What sneaky trade-deals and illegal attacks on our freedom are being hammered out in DC this week, eh?

      So... this has happened before?

        Says it all.

        A similar situation in Scotland would make headlines all over the UK, but another shooting in the USA is, "Local news."
        Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

              Nothing. It has become de rigor for the MSM to report every shooting, gun incident, and the like as part of what I'd think is a non-concerted, but like-thinking, effort to move public opinion towards gun control and abolition of the Second amendment.

                Yet not one word about a law abiding citizen either stopping a crime or saving lives with a firearm...

                  That is anathema to the narrative that the MSM wants, not often fully conscientiously, wants to portray so it gets ignored.

                    That was my point - a country where shootings are so commonplace as to be unremarkable.

                    Shootings in the UK are headline news because they are so (thankfully) rare.

                      At the risk of over-stating the obvious, we are not the UK and you are not America.

                      And while your nation and many others abhors our violence, you never hesitate to seek our help or our aid, especially during world wars.

                      You might also consider not labeling 300 million Americans the same way you label the violent among us, lest we make the same comparison with the violence in the UK and your own citizens.

                          No, because Scotland is so small, smaller than most of the 50 states in the US.

                          Hey, have you guys made Claymores illegal for the Common peons yet?

                          Allow me to speak for the Liberal orthodoxy-

                          Heretic!
                          Madman!
                          Are you saying that Guns can actually prevent crime?!?
                          Only the Police, the Army, and all those armed bodyguards for every politician and Rich guy can be trusted to have guns. We little people are just to evil stupid and CRAZY!!!
                          Bow down and be meek before your superiors in the establishment.

                            In one of these threads I was accused of not being meek enough. I don't buy into the white guilt bs. I'm not one to bow down to any human.

                              So... to prevent this, do you support HS CCW?

                              Or the cops running the "Gun free zone" like in this case?
