  • Why The Media Didn't Make A Big Deal Of The YouTube Shooting

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    The anti-gun narrative coming from the mainstream media has been relentlessly pushed upon us for a month and a half now. They have insinuated that anyone who challenges the arguments of the Parkland students is a monster, exclaimed that nobody needs an AR-15 and equated the NRA to a terrorist organization. So, one might think they would take every opportunity to further demonize gun ownership after the YouTube shooting. However, this incident conflicts with their carefully crafted narrative. Here are the key reasons that the media didn’t make a bid deal of the YouTube shooting: The Shooter Wasn't A White...

"I might use the gun to cause trouble,"...

    A US police officer shot dead an unarmed man walking in traffic with his trousers down, and his family says it looks like "premeditated murder". Police dashcam video shows Danny Ray Thomas, 34, walking towards the officer on a road in Houston, Texas, last Thursday before a gunshot rings out. Deputy Cameron Brewer repeatedly shouts "get down on the ground" before firing. Both the officer and victim are black. Mr Thomas' family say he suffered from depression after his children died. His sister, Kita Thomas-Smith, attended a Houston City Council meeting on Tuesday where she tearfully urged politicians do to...

    PARKLAND, Fla. — My first interaction with Nikolas Cruz happened when I was in seventh grade. I was eating lunch with my friends, most likely discussing One Direction or Ed Sheeran, when I felt a sudden pain in my lower back. The force of the blow knocked the wind out of my 90-pound body; tears stung my eyes. I turned around and saw him, smirking. I had never seen this boy before, but I would never forget his face. His eyes were lit up with a sick, twisted joy as he watched me cry. The apple that he had thrown...

    Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes, a survivor of a mass-shooting incident, called the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School "disgusting vile abusers of the dead" for participating in the March for Our Lives protest. Hughes penned his tirade in the caption of an Instagram post that mocked gun control and the efforts for stricter gun laws. "Obviously … The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law (like the law against Murder) is to ... pass another Law," Hughes wrote. "But before we pass this law we're going to denigrate the memory and...

    Attorneys for Noor Salman are calling for a dismissal of charges or a mistrial after they say new details from prosecutors reveal that Pulse gunman Omar Mateen’s father was an FBI informant who is currently under a criminal investigation.

The email also stated that Seddique Mateen is being investigated for money transfers to Turkey and Pakistan...

    Today, students from around the country will converge on Washington D.C. and other locations for the “March for Our Lives” rallies. The organizers are survivors of the horrific February 14th shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that resulted in the deaths of 17 people, both students and faculty members. These rallies will receive massive media attention, which is in stark contrast to the press blackout that is given to the tens of thousands of students who visit our Nation’s Capital every year for the “March for Life” rally. The reason for this double standard is obvious....

    A black man with two small children was shot and killed by Sacramento, California police. His only crime? Holding a cellphone while standing in his own backyard.That seems to be the Left’s narrative, anyway, regarding the death of 22-year-old Stephon Clark, who was indeed shot by police in his grandmother’s yard on Sunday night. And given today’s political climate along with mainstream media headlines and activist tweets on the topic, it’s no wonder so many people are outraged.The tweet that perhaps went viral the fastest, with well over 100,000 likes and retweets, came from First Coast News journalist Lana Harris,...

    SACRAMENTO -- Four days after 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot and killed by police officers in his grandparents' backyard, protesters gathered inside and outside Sacramento City Hall. Officers believed Clark had been breaking into cars in the neighborhood and shot him because they say they thought he had a gun. He was only holding a cellphone. "The death of one more man of color is one too many," Mayor Darrell Steinberg said earlier Thursday before the protest began. Protesters clogged major downtown Sacramento streets near City Hall as the Thursday commute was about to begin. Earlier in the day, the...
