In February and March of 2013, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner started a series that was unofficially called 30 Days of Guns Saving Lives. The series was in response to a weeklong series aired by NBC which “investigated” “gun violence” in America.
On each day of the week, NBC exploited a single death where a gun was used as the instrument of death. The exploitation was yet another attempt for biased mainstream media to gain acceptance and support for gun control.
The 30 days series was an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, but very often save them. The series highlighted one story each day of a gun being used in self-defense. Most of these stories never even hit mainstream media. This was a fact that was both shocking, yet not surprising. But that fact in itself should be proof positive of the biasness and underlying intentions of the media.
These are the stories from the 30 days series.
