Unauthorized Journalist Questions Spin…

This is how we the “authorized journalists“…spin it!

http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/d-c-gun-laws-strictest-u-100058766–abc-news-politics.html

Summary, article details DC’s strict gun laws mentioning that “Gun-rights advocates frequently suggest that tough gun laws don’t make people safer.”

Then the article says “In 2012, D.C. reported fewer than 100 homicides for the first time since 1963.” implying that DC’s strict gun laws have led to the homicide decline.

When in truth, if you were to point to a single change since 1963, one would have to note that the removal of DC’s gun ban was the most significant change in recent years, and perhaps in the past 40 years since the ban was put into effect.

But hey, speaking the truth is NOT a requirement, nor even an element of “authorized journalists“.
