The Cause and Effect of Media Hype


The Cause and Effect of Media Hype.

 

The Effect
Words must be said about the latest ghoulish feeding frenzy of the Anti Gun
Lobby and their media hirelings.  Loss, Anguished, Torment, Heartbreak
Grief. It is impossible for words to describe what the families of the
victims are suffering. Our sympathy seems so utterly
Inadequate, but sympathy is genuinely felt by firearm owners for those bereaved.
Not so with the Media and the anti gunner, they do not wait for the blood
to stop flowing before they revel in it. They publicise it, they magnify
every detail, they make maniacs into heros and heros into maniacs. They
have turned the world upside down. They give instant immortality to
Manchurian candidates, who have been programmed by the media, by the
state, the entertainment industry to have no respect for human life.
At the same time, they remove the blame, the whole responsibility of the
crime from the immortalised maniac to the inanimate object the firearm.
They blame firearm owners for the crime. They split their focus on to
the glorification of the maniac, removing his responsibility and
condemning firearm ownership. Incorrectly, creating firearms and firearm
owners as the cause, where in fact they are the produced victims of the
media bashing. 


Firearm Owners have found no justice. The rich win, the poor are powerless. We
become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time,  a little dead. We
think of ourselves as victims and we become victims. We become weak. We
doubt ourselves. We doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And
we doubt the law.
The media is so powerful, that after they had  picked the bones clean on their Port Arthur campaign, law abiding
firearm owners dutifully queued to hand over their 100 year old
heirlooms, mostly for no compensation to the government crushers.

The powerbrokers, who manufacture the consent of the public, forcing
legislation which ignores the cause and concentrates specifically on the
tool, which is part of the effect, condemns us to the repetition of
such acts. This fact is so obvious that it raises doubts in either their
integrity or sanity. A political agenda, or Dr Strangelove madness. 

The Cause.
All to sate the greed of these academic social engineers who have taken
education into the wilderness of anything goes, destroyed marriage,
families, removed the death penalty, no morals, no logic, no blame, and
making the State responsible, to feed the people from the cradle to the
grave. Without responsibility people relinquish their freedom. That
seems to be the objective of the Social engineers. They educate our
younger generations into believing that they have no responsibility and
that their only allegiance is to their own self gratification. No
responsibility to family, their country, a religion. No they have
replaced all this with self gratification, if it feels good do it. Yet,
they act surprised when the products of their Manchurian mind games go
out and kill people with less emotion than a housewife using fly spray.
In days gone by, soldier returning from the battlefields, many who had
seen repeated, horrific bloodshed, had little compassion to spare for
human life, even their own, they had inured themselves from the
psychological scars. These days our youths have viewed ten thousand
deaths on the video screen and taken part in a million murders in
computer games. Human life is now not worth a bowl of cherries. We have
programmed our youth to behave in a similar fashion to the Japanese of
the 1930s and 1940s who had no regard for the lives of their conquered
nations and had little regard for their own lives, as their lives
belonged to the deity of the god like emperor. Likewise our youths, new
god is the messages given to them on an electronic screen, reality and
responsibility have been lost.  The people sending these messages are
the cause of our discontent.
  
Logic Should End the Feeding Frenzy.
If a drunken driver crashes through a bus stop and kills nine children and
two parents, do we blame the effect, the car, or the cause the drunken
driver? In these cases without media hype, we immediately blame the
cause, the driver. Yet, in all cases of misbehaviour with a firearm they
blame the effecting tool.
Statistics and figures are used to condemn the innocent law-abiding firearm owner yet in 2002 five years after
John Howard’s un informed gun laws were enacted the Australian Bureau of
Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control
and the use of firearms in violent crime.  Then Australia’s Bureau of
Statistics on Crime and Research acknowledged that the gun laws had no
significant impact on the amount of guns involved in crime. That should
have been the end of it, but that information is not the news that sells
advertising.
Main stream media never wish to publish both sides of a debate they omit entirely the statistics that are pro-firearms such as.
The most recent FBI figures show just 358 of the 8,775 murders by firearm
in 2010 involved rifles. By comparison, 745 people were beaten to death
with only hands that year, but no one has called for outlawing of fists.

Guns don’t kill people, doctors kill people.’
In Britain Six thousand patients are dying every year because hospital
staff are not properly monitoring important vital signs, such as blood
oxygen levels how can firearms compete with death rates like this, that
are ignored as they do not suit the social engineers’ agenda.
We all  lose the reality to a certain degree, due to the size of the numbers
that are quoted as facts and statistics the 700,000 Doctors in the
United States, cause 120,000 Accidental Deaths per year that is
Accidental Deaths per physician is 0.171. Statistics U.S. Dept. of
Health and Human Services.
The number of gun owners in the U.S. is  at least  80,000,000. (New figures quote 90 Million)  The number of
accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500. The number of
accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.0000188, Statistics from FBI.
So, statistically, doctors are approximately  9,000 times more dangerous
than gun owners. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be
killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!! 
The media is quick to compare armed crime figures with between Australia and the United
States, who do not have our extremist tyrannical gun laws, yet both
countries have shared similar decreases in murder rates over the last 22
years. In Australia in  2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2
percent. Sexual assault, Australia’s equivalent term for rape,
increased 29.9 percent. Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose
42.2 percent.
Through 2010, the USA murder rate has decreased 52
percent to a 47-year low, and the total violent crime rate has decreased
48 percent to a 37-year low
Between 1995 and 2007, Australia saw a  31.9 percent decrease in violent crime rates yet The United States
without our extremist Gun laws dropped by 31.7 percent.
During the  same time period, all other violent crime indices, besides murder
increased in Australia. Assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2
percent. Sexual assault, Australia’s nice words for rape, increased 29.9
percent. Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
At the same time, United States violent crime decreased 31.8 percent: rape
dropped 19.2 percent; robbery decreased 33.2 percent; aggravated
assault dropped 32.2 percent. Australian women are now raped more than
three times as often as American women.
The FBI has preliminarily reported a four percent drop in the number of violent crimes from 2010
to 2011. The 18th drop in the last 20 years. Violent crime is now at
about a 41-year low. The NRA responded that crime has decreased as the
number of Right-to-Carry states has risen to an all-time high as 49 U.S.
states either issue carry permits, or otherwise authorize law-abiding
people to carry firearms outside the home for self-defence.
The International Crime Victims Survey, conducted by Leiden University in
Holland, found that England and Wales ranked second overall in violent
crime amongst all industrialized nations. Twenty-six percent of English
citizens, roughly one-quarter of the population, have been victimized by
violent crime. Australia led the list with more than 30 percent of its
population victimized. The United States didn’t even make the “top 10″
list of industrialized nations whose citizens were victimized by crime.
So, if the United States follows the suggestion of Gun Control Australia
and the Australian media and follow  Australia’s lead in banning guns,
it should expect a 42 percent increase in violent crime, a higher
percentage of murders committed with a firearm, and three times more
rape.

The Media Brainwash.
Capitalizing on the tragedy of a mass murder is Ghoulish. The anti-gun forces are surging forward
with their plans for total gun confiscation. If law-abiding private
citizens were disarmed, they claim, criminals and crazies would be
unable to kill and maim. That’s an obvious lie–criminals, by definition,
disobey laws, and madmen can kill with cars, bombs, Sarin gas, poison
in the Panadol, Fire (Childers Backpackers) or beer bottles, as easily
and as senselessly as they can with guns.

The media’ purpose seems to elicit fear in the mind of the viewer and to
convince us to live in constant fear of our surroundings. The media try
to brainwash us into associating guns with bad people. Don’t you cringe
when the media shows images of the man caught importing a ‘how to be a
gunsmith manual’ by mail order, off the internet? The police cars, the
Customs, the Army bomb squad ready and waiting. The photos of his little
“Arsenal” half a dozen rifles all sprawled out on a bed, the long
images of the Army boots beneath the bed  (as if those things are
inherently evil)? Then they show some poor man whose has been dragged
from his bed, roughly dressed, naturally scruffy, un happy scowling
photo of the alleged “bad guy”. It might even turn out that this bad guy
was innocent after all, but it doesn’t matter. All they want is the
association. If you have a firearm then you’re like that bad man on TV.
The more people are afraid, the more they will willingly give up their
rights and even demand that those in power take them away from
themselves, in order to protect us from ourselves. The media will never
discuss the innumerable cases where law-abiding citizens defend
themselves and others from certain death using guns. They never discuss
how many crimes are deterred due to the presence of firearms. That might
convince viewers that firearms can be used to protect people.
