When facts are not on your side, the strategy must shift towards appeals to emotion, or outright propaganda. We have seen this in the war on terror and the subsequent real wars that have resulted. No WMDs? No matter. Just rile people up enough to the point where they are terrorized without the presence of real terror and now you've got a plan.

Another area where emotions trump facts is gun control. And, there again, the establishment admits they are losing on both accounts: emotions and facts. Instead of fully capitulating, however, a guidebook was produced with the title: "Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging." It's worth a closer look.

I've seen so many news lately regarding "gun violence" and shootings all across North America. I have been curiously watching ever since I "woke up" and realize how hard the government is pushing toward gun control. I, myself, don't own a gun and don't even know how to operate one but, the fact that with each passing day the government keeps pushing this agenda, actually makes me want to get one. So, what is going on? Does the government truly want to disarm its people or does the government truly have the people's safety in mind?

As the rate of gun ownership increases, the rate of firearm homicide decreases.

Those who say “guns don’t make us safer” are the biggest hypocrites among us.

They have been spreading anti-gun propaganda effectively for many years. So much so that many people believe crime is on the increase when the actual stats show the exact opposite. This can ONLY be due to the constant drum beat from the MSM and the left.

This is what people think:

This is the reality:

I agree. With every false flag attack, there is another push to control guns. With every shooter on the loose, there is another push against guns. The MSM only feeds the beast by reporting on news filled with terror-filled-violence for the masses to swallow and give over there guns. The biggest hits they get are those concerned with "gun violence" and kids because that really riles up the sheeple.
