JPFO Alert: More Americans Know a Defended Home is a Safer Home; "Gun Control" Advocates Upset

Today's JPFO Alert notes the welcome rise in the number of Americans who realize that defenselessness is dangerous.

The right to own guns is in no way predicated on how popular it is, nor even on how desirable the outcome is. Still, if more and more Americans are realizing that they, and only they, are responsible for their families' security, and know that the best way to provide that security is to have an effective means of stopping those who would do them harm, this is very good news indeed.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, Claire, and Mama Liberty, you owe it to yourself to fix that.

For years, three TV networks and a few major newspapers and magazines dominated the media. And they all parroted the PC party line: "If you own a gun, you are more likely to shoot yourself or a family member than an intruder." (BTW, that statistic was created by juggling numbers and misrepresenting facts. For example, if a woman shot her ex-husband while he was attacking her with an ax, it was counted as "a family member getting shot," instead of as self-defense, thus inflating the "bad" shootings and downplaying the justifiable ones. Also, they did not count cases of criminals who ran away when confronted by armed citizens; 98% of the time, when a gun is used in self-defense, the gun is not fired.)

Now, with more media outlets, including Fox News, talk radio, and the internet, more and more people are getting news that hasn't been filtered through the PC prism. No wonder "Gun Control Advocates" (and leftists in general) are "upset."
