Question: How little does the media know about guns?Here's a direct link to the Bee editorial. Here's the link to my blogpost on how 33,o93 people killed themselves in Japan last year. This may be a shock to even the editorial writers at the Bee, but 33,093 is larger than 30,000, the combined total in the U.S. of suicides, homicides and accidents...and this in a country with a population of less than 1/2 the U.S!
Answer: From the AP, the actual MSNBC headline: “Surprising fact: Half of gun deaths are suicides.” This should surprise no one — 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: “Some 30,000 Americans die every year from gun violence, a gun death toll greater than anywhere in Europe or Japan.” Plod on, oh Ignoramus Rex. Oblivion awaits.

You might send him a link to my blogpost...he won't answer, because the MSM is doesn't answer to anyone...especially the truth.
