FREEDOM
ON THE RISE

Pro-gun Colorado legislators have wasted little time in moving toward
rescinding some of the restrictive laws passed in the state in 2013, which
led to the recall of two key senators and the resignation of another.
On the very first day of the legislative session, lawmakers proposed
bills that would roll back laws requiring background checks for all firearm
purchases and limit magazines to 15 rounds or fewer.
We'll keep you posted as law-abiding Colorado gun owners, and those
who represent them, continue to try to undo the injustices pushed upon
them after contentious debate back in 2013.

FACING FEAR
MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS PASSING OFF IRRATIONAL
FEARS AS CREDIBLE JOURNALISM

You may have heard the phrase "narrative journalism"
lately. It seems to be shorthand for "stuff that isn't
necessarily true, but serves the writer's purpose." In other
words, it's a lie, but we should still call it journalism.
A perfect example can be found in a column by Houston Chronicle writer Lisa
Falkenberg, who recently wrote about her experiences at the nra Annual Meetings and
Exhibits in Houston a few years back.
Lisa was enjoying a sunny weekend afternoon downtown with her kids, she writes,
when suddenly:
"The National Rifle Association's annual convention let out over at the George R.
Brown. Attendees came streaming out, by twos, by fours, by hoards [sic]-friendly,
law-abiding folks, most of them, I'm sure.
"But they all came toting heavy cases and bags full of weapons. The people just
walked out of a gun convention, so I didn't expect them to be carrying quilts. But there
was something about the scene that was deeply unsettling.
"Innocent, careless toddlers frolicking on the sunny green, only a few feet away from
the slow, steady march of hundreds of guns in bags and cases."
There's one problem with Falkenberg's story-there weren't any guns sold at the nra
Annual Meetings in Houston. There weren't any patrons toting "bags full of weapons." If
Falkenberg was unsettled, it was because of her unreasonable fears, not those attending
the Annual Meetings.
Did it even occur to Falkenberg to check on her claim? Or did it even matter? After
all, her greater truth is that gun owners unsettle her. What does it matter if there weren't
really bags of guns around her that sunny afternoon?
I'm not sure if Falkenberg realizes this, but her false narrative really does reveal
a larger truth: Anti-gun advocates rely on fear and ignorance for their success, not
knowledge and experience.
