Why the Liberal Media Can’t Be Trusted to Write About the Second Amendment

Looking for a new way to get your cardio in today? Try reading this article from Quartz. I guarantee it’ll get your heart rate up.

In the article “Americans can no longer be trusted with the Second Amendment,” Meredith Bennett-Smith calls for a change to the U.S. Constitution, specifically “clarifying" the Second Amendment.

“The fact is that we need fewer guns in the United States. We need to stop selling assault rifles. And if there's no way to do this in a way that satisfies constitutional scholars, we need to change the Second Amendment.”

Bennett-Smith continues...

"To be clear, I know plenty of responsible gun owners. I want hunters to be able to hunt—but not with semiautomatic weapons. And I would like people who enjoy a little target practice to be able to do so at their local firing range—but not with semiautomatic weapons."

And that’s just the start of another example of how the liberal media continues to write about topics they clearly have no knowledge about, without taking the time to conduct any kind of research. And this is from an Editor.

“Today, the NRA treats personal gun ownership as an inviolable right, regardless of its function or purpose.”

The NRA will never apologize for fighting for the Second Amendment rights of ALL law abiding citizens, including Bennett-Smith. We’ll also continue to advocate for firearm education and training like we’ve done for over 140 years. In fact, over the past 5 years, over 1.2 million people have gone through an NRA beginner pistol course.

Bennett-Smith goes on to express her disapproval of “semiautomatic assault rifles” like the AR-15… Again, if she had done her research she would know that AR-15 actually stands for ArmaLite Rifle, and "assault rifle" is just a term coined by the media.

Millions of people know how to use these “super manly” firearms safely and responsibly through NRA training courses and their popularity is growing because the AR-15 model is customizable, adaptable, reliable, and accurate for sport shooting, hunting, and self-defense situations. And also because anti-gunners like Bennett-Smith keep wanting to ban them.

We are not only willing to educate and train people who own or shoot guns, but we’re willing to educate those who write about guns. If you're interested, give us a buzz.
