CNN lies & fakes the story once again!

I really wish I could just believe that CNN is full of incompetent reporters & editors. Unfortunately it is equally as likely that they are just a bunch of liars who wish to mislead their audience in order to support their own liberal dream of re-enacting the Clinton gun ban (commonly called the "assault weapon" ban by the gun grabbers) that already expired without renewal.

This is a repeat of the same lies & propaganda spewed by CBS news last month as reported in blog entries such as Days of our Trailers & Say Uncle, with new lies added in by CNN for extra putrid flavoring. Just one of the misleading statements CNN included:

"We're having more than one officer shot and killed a week. It's just outrageous that officers are being targeted," he said. "It's something I think all Americans should be outraged about."

He lays the blame squarely on lawmakers who allowed the assault weapons ban to expire in 2004.

What in the world does the rate of killings of Police Officers have to do with the expired Clinton gun ban? They make that statement as if they're saying all or even most of those officers were killed with weapons named on the banned list, which is an outright lie. Officers are killed by all kinds of criminals who use all kinds of weapons - handguns, shotguns, knives, cars, baseball bats, explosives, & normal semi-automatic rifles. Full auto assault rifles are not very common on the streets, and even if they were, it would not be caused by the lack of the so-called assault weapon ban which does NOT include a SINGLE ASSAULT RIFLE. Not one. Surprised? It's all part of the deception - the folks in favor of the Clinton gun ban want people to be confused so that they will support it.

In the CNN news story they keep going back & forth between the phrase "assault rifle" & "assault weapon" as if they both mean the same thing. They did at one time, because assault weapons officially only included assault rifles and weapons used by military forces for armed assaults on enemy forces, until the Brady folks & Clinton decided to cause mass confusion by defining normal semi automatic rifles that have 2 or more "evil looking" features such an "evil" pistol grip as being an "assault weapon" even if it was not an assault rifle. One example of the normal semi automatic guns that had been banned by the Clinton gun ban is the popular "Sport Utility" gun - the AR-15. Jack of all trades - works great for target practice, home defense, target matches, etc. Below is yet another example of the lies from CNN - first they said the Police Department is being armed with Assault rifle's:

Miami's police department also is in the process of arming every officer with an assault rifle.
Then later they said:

Palm Beach Sheriff's deputy Carl Martin bought his own AR-15 and passed the required training.
So apparently they want us to think an AR-15 is an assault rifle which is a big fat lie.

There are far more powerful rifles out there than the semi-automatic rifles that had been banned by the Clinton Gun ban. A .30-06 rifle comes to mind as a popular hunting rifle that is far more powerful than either the popular semi-auto AR-15 or the popular semi-auto version of the AK-47. Yet the article continued to blubber on & on about "high powered assault weapons"
"It's not nice we have to arm ourselves like the soldiers in Iraq," said Sgt. Laurie Pfeil, who supervises a sheriff's road patrol in Palm Beach County and is now certified to carry a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle on the job. It's the civilian version of the military's M-16 used by U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Believe me when I tell you that our soldiers are not using AR-15 semi-automatic rifles - they NEVER have. They use "select fire" full automatic or burst mode assault rifles commonly known as the M-16. It has little to do with an AR-15 other than that they have a few common features such as a pistol grip & an accessory rail where you can attach utilities like a flashlight which works nicely for home defense purposes against criminal invaders.

So enough with the lies & propaganda. Let's call an AR-15 what it really is - a Sport Utility Rifle or SUR for short. It is not an "assault rifle" even if the media wishes us to believe that it is. The Clinton gun ban was not renewed because it was dumb legislation that did not do anything other than ban perfectly normal semi-automatic rifles in a blatant attempt to keep them out of the hands of law abiding citizens. The truth came out, and the legislation died a well deserved long overdue death, which is exactly where it should stay. Let the dead horse lie in its grave - a zombie horse is not a pretty picture, lets not attempt to raise this dead horse from the grave as the Brady folks are demanding.

CNN & CBS news should start out every story with the following advisory: "Warning - you are about to be assaulted by left wing liberal bias, propaganda, and outright lies carefully crafted to confuse & mislead. Viewer discretion is advised. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile."

I wish NRA and GOA would work to effect boycotts of both CBS and CNN programming. The way to hurt these networks doing anti-gun pieces is to hit them right in the wallet.

1/3 of police carry semiautomatics? so only a 3rd carry handguns? Hand guns are semiauto.
Automatics are seen everyday? An AK47 is semiauto. That female officer doesn't know what she is talking about. Maybe some college will help her out.
Definitely an opportunistic article. Nice timing with the democratic elections and all.
So only officer should get guns right?
What is a "high powered rifle" Is an elephant guna a "high powered rifle"
Did they get there statistics from San Francisco?
Susan Candiotti is a partial and biased reported and she has discredited her reputation. CNN is definitely liberal, more so than I realized before. Foxnews is FAIR and BALANCED!

Why don't they report the officer who killed teenagers at a sleep over in Wisconson? He used an ar-15.

Dustin said...

Yes Scott. I too prefer Fox by a huge margin, and only watch CNN or CBS every now and then to see what new biased propaganda they are coming up with.

Very good points anonymous.

The gun grabbers misinforming the public? How can this be? Wait, this is nothing new. Hopefully, we will prevail through such tactics.

Hay just a note the 7.62x39mm (is use by the AK 47) is a good bit big then the 30-06

Jack - bullet diameter isn't actually the entire picture. You need to look at total bullet weight, total force, length of barrel, etc. The primary indicator would be ft/lbf (Foot Lbs of Force) Here is a comparison between the AK-47, AR-15, & the .30-06 to give an idea - as you can see the .30-06 is the most powerful of the 3, and there are other rifles even more powerful than the .30-06:
7.9 mm (.311 in) 123 gr 2,300 ft/s & 1,480 ft/lbf
5.69 mm (.224 in) 62 gr 3,100 ft/s & 1,309 ft/lbf
7.8 mm (.308 in) 180 gr 2,880 ft/s & 3,315 ft/lbf

Why are we not saying that the After Action report finds :

The principal office did not have defense in depth locker: this would have stopped the killer within 10 seconds

Principal and 10 percent staff secret clearance authorized could have saved 26 innocent lives. Immediately within 5 seconds she could have grabbed

Pepper spray
Pellet ball pepper spray gun
Tazer gun
Flash bang stun supressor

Any or all four of those offensive uses would have helped stop killing from crazed killer.

Final weapon in locker could have been
9mm hand gun

So once the killer was seen at door, or when blew out door, or when accessed immediate entrance or when near office the four immediate officials could have stopped the
Illegal murder of innocence.

This solution of Under $1000 dollars could be implemented across the country within two days. The security clearances could be conducted on 10 percent of teacher staff. Give access to only those competent as secondary job simply like a collateral assignment.

Problem solved across the country. No foolish adding of armed officers unless school wanted it.

Problem solved here. But all we get if foolish liberals trying to stop legal ownership. Liberals are scared of themselves and hey are only trying to disarm the very people who are

For instance, on the off chance that you are obtaining cash to begin a business that has no reputation, yet you possess a house that far surpasses the estimation of the credit, the house can be utilized as guarantee rather than the business. In the event that your salary is variable, yet you have speculations that produce stable wage, this is another
