Quoting Scarlett.Harlot.Starlet.:" That is not correct. Propaganda is meant to influence someones opinion about something and this is 100% propaganda."

I guess I just disagree because I don't believe reporting on what's going on in our world is trying to convince people of something. I believe gun violence really is an issue, too

Well then you have too much trust in the news media which is never a good thing.

You should probably have more of a problem with the people using the guns and their mental stability, but ok.

Why can't you guys have a rational conversation without trying to be insulting? By telling me I'm brainwashed and what not you make me believe your argument is flimsy and you have no other recourse but to be nasty

One person said that so you can't apply that to "you guys".

Did I put your name next to brainwashed? NO. I don't know you well enough to assume that. I just don't trust the media,and I love having a clear mind without the medias constant bullshit in it. If I wanted to insult you I would have quoted you.

They're using these shootings to make guns look bad. You rarely hear them report on people who use guns defending themselves, just the massacre stories. I've read multiple self defense stories in the past few month but have yet to hear 90% of them on major news outlets.

You implied it, too. A direct response to what you said, I agree that issues with mental health need to be addressed, too.. But none of the proposed gun laws lead me to believe that anything so drastic as a media conspiracy to make guns "look bad" is even nescessary

You quoted the person who was talking to me directly and said "isn't it nice to not be brainwashed"
