Media bias on gun control: Chicago PD investigates a gun show selling untraceable machine guns

Chicago PD goes to neighboring Wisconsin to a gun show to find someone who is making “Cop Killer Machine Guns.” The machine guns are said to be “untraceable” and are made by an underground machine shop. The notion that criminals readily obtain guns at gun shows is simply false. Gun shows account for less than one percent of crime guns (in 2016, the rate was 0.8%).…

At the Daily Caller: Trump Keeps Condemning White Nationalists — So why does the media keep denying it?

Dr. John Lott’s piece at the Daily Caller starts this way:

Ever since the 2016 campaign, Democrats and the media have asserted that President Trump has failed to distance himself from white nationalists and neo-Nazis. The fact that White House staffers must answer these questions shows how far out of kilter the discussion has gone.

In the Washington Times: When the media makes Trump a target

Dr. John Lott has a new piece in the Washington Times. His piece relies heavily on our research on mass killings around the world.

The national Sunday morning talk shows blamed President Trump for the New Zealand massacre that left 50 dead. CNN’s Jake Tapper warned: “I don’t think moderate Republicans are doing enough to hold President Trump accountable for his rhetoric.” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted supposed parallels to the killer’s rhetoric, and asked: “When the President uses the term ‘invaders,’ does that dehumanize to the point where it can get misused?”

The media made Trump its singular target, but not even Democrats were completely spared from the frenzy of critical reactions.

Shouldn’t politicians who vote on gun control need to know basics about gun control laws?

Democrat Presidential Candidate Kirsten Gillibrand: “Unfortunately, because the gun manufacturers only care about gun sales, they oppose the commonsense reform that can save lives. They want to oppose universal background checks because they want to sell an assault rifle to a teenager in a Walmart.”

Senator Gillibrand apparently doesn’t know this, but since 1994 if you tried to buy a gun through any dealer in the United States, there was a background check done on you.…

At Townhall: Media Calls The New Zealand Shooter ‘Right-Wing’

The media wants to call anyone who is a racist a “right-wing” extremist. Here is Dr. John Lott’s take on the mass public shooting in New Zealand.

The Washington Post called the New Zealand mosque shooting “one of the worst cases of right-wing terrorism in years.” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the killer “an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.”

“The person giving a sign of allegiance to President Trump is the killer here,” said CNN’s John Berman.
