The mentally challenged weapon enthusiasts, among us, are ablaze with paranoia pertaining to delusions that their guns will be taken away. Of course IT'S NOT TRUE, yet they are all over the media threatening that if the only tool that makes them feel important and all powerful (their weaponry) is taken from their pathetic, cold hands; they will start to SHOOT PEOPLE. These Fear Monger types are like a cancer upon society and they wish to spread their malignancy far and wide across this country of ours. They HATE (or they pretend to hate) and they have something to sell that will make them in their misconceptions, either famous or rich or both (unfortunately, it sometimes works, as in the case of Alex Jones). Their hope is to get others to HATE because it can blind the weak-minded enough to buy their nonsense and join them in kind of a, blaze of glory, fallacy. This video shows four examples of some of the worst of the worst whose desire is to have their egos massaged (and pockets) and they accomplish this, by using FEAR! thinkingblue

Down the Rabbit Hole With Fox News’ Latest Obama Gun Conspiracy By: Sarah Jones

Wondering why you can’t go anywhere without bumping into a ranting, screaming crazy person nattering on about Obama taking their freedom away? It’s Fox acid.

Come down the rabbit hole with a recent Fox News article titled, “UN gun control treaty will reveal gun laws Obama really supports” to break down the anatomy of the Fox News Obama’s coming for our guns lie. Turns out, the very narrow ledge of “reality” they preach over is buttressed on nada but “feelings” that lead to vague conspiracy theories.

John Lott starts off badly with these faulty assertions:

    "The Obama administration is undoubtedly the most hostile administration to gun ownership in US history, with Obama having personally supported bans of handguns and semi-automatic weapons before becoming president. And remember the recent scandal where the Obama administration was caught allowing guns go to Mexican drug gangs, hoping it would help push for gun control laws."

Okay, so wow. If you believed all of that, you’d be paranoid too.

Trouble is, this is a lie upon a lie upon a lie. The first link “proving” Obama is the most hostile administration on gun ownership goes to a John Lott blog post titled, “President Obama’s Anti-Gun Agenda Shows No Sign of Stopping.” Only Lott shows no signs of Obama’s actual policy-based anti-gun agenda. He can’t show policy because it’s not true.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
