Question: How little does the media know about guns?
Answer: From the AP, the actual MSNBC headline: â€œSurprising fact: Half of gun deaths are suicides.â€ This should surprise no one â€” except those who have fallen for the manipulation of statistics by the anti-gun lobby.
Question: Does this stop the media from pretending it is expert on guns?
Answer: No. From a Sacramento Bee editorial: â€œSome 30,000 Americans die every year from gun violence, a gun death toll greater than anywhere in Europe or Japan.â€ Plod on, oh Ignoramus Rex. Oblivion awaits.
