“Gun Violence” – the Newest Media Meme

Why isn’t anyone noticing how the media is creating a perception of negativity towards guns with their new meme “Gun Violence”.

Guns are not violent.  People are violent (at times).

The obvious objective here is to create a mass perception/delusion of the people that “guns are bad”. If everyone keeps using this phrase (even conservative sites are parroting it unwittingly (I hope unwittingly)) over and over again, eventually people will start to think guns are the problem.  But they are not.  Bad people are the problem.

Furthermore that violence is bad.  That’s right.  Violence is not always a bad thing.  Self defense being the first example.  It’s violent, it’s a good thing!
