Because it goes against the Anti -gun movement....and the bias media does not like a story where someone defends themselves with a gun and is not committing a crime? Just saying...

Now, you are correct in citing it not appearing on the nightly news, nor did CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, or any of the other non-fox MSM outlets say one single word about it. But there was some national coverage from traditionally liberal sources.

Now the media needs to show nothing but pictures of a 10 year old Michael Scott singing in the choir at church to make the story sound better.

The media just showed that picture of Obama shooting guns, which means that he obviously knows stuff about guns, amirite?

It's funny how little anti-gunners know about firearm laws. I was discussing assault weapons with my mom and she told me she doesn't understand why anyone would want to buy an "automatic machinegun". Like you can totally buy one...

There is a rather marked difference between going into a shop and buying something and going into a shop and paying for a machinegun, getting the tax stamps, filling out the paper work, waiting 8 months for the NFA item to clear and then walking out with it.

But yeah. I get what you are trying to say.
