If we were to take the mainstream media’s narrative at face value every time there are reports of a mass shooting, we would believe that inanimate hunks of plastic and metal suddenly became sentient and brainwashed impressionable minds to commit horrendous acts of violence.
Obviously, this isn’t the case. In almost every incident, would-be killers who aren’t able to get their hands on a firearm find another way to commit their crimes anyway. Now, the anti-gun left in the United States likes to respond to this by suggesting that this is reason enough to enact stricter gun control laws anyway, but this ignores the root of the problem.
America doesn’t have a gun problem — it has a culture problem, and the media is entirely complicit in how it developed.
When nightly talking heads consistently plaster the names and faces of mass shooters on television screens across their country, they are giving these killers exactly what they wanted — notoriety. In essence, they are inadvertently promoting a sort of localized terrorism. Because of this, it’s no wonder why so many Americans have such a skewed view on guns.
The media has a lot of responsibility to cover the facts accurately when acts of violence involving guns are reported. But, they also have a responsibility on knowing where to draw the line. The video below helps explain more.
