Media Bias: Yet Another TV Police show showing a Defensive Gun Use Gone Wrong

Jun 9, 2023 | Media Bias

Television show bias against guns is never-ending. It is exceedingly rare to see an entertainment television show with a civilian successfully using a gun defensively. Instead, something always seems to go wrong when guns are used defensively (from being fatally shot by the criminal without stopping the crime to getting in the way of police to continually having the gun stolen and used in a crime to it being used in an accidental shooting). This episode of CBS’ FBI International is no different (Season 2, Episode 21, May 16, 2021). In this episode, a wealthy woman in Portugal is accosted by a rideshare driver. She escaped but was fearful and asked to carry a gun for protection. Unfortunately, when a man she was having an affair with was pestering her, she overreacted and fatally shot him. She is now facing murder charges in Portugal.

If you watch entertainment television these days, you would never know that people use guns defensively some 2 million times a year. If you want some examples of people successfully using guns to stop crimes, here are some examples. Other examples of people using guns to stop mass public shootings are available here.
