ABC's 20/20 debunks myth that gun control reduces crime
Given the typically uninformed and sometimes biased coverage of guns, gun crimes, and potential gun legislation, it can be extremely difficult for gun owners to read the newspaper or watch the television. But once in a while, a journalist shines through - not because they are pro-gun, but because they are fair. They weigh the facts and report the story.
On the print side, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Regina Brett has been absolutely brilliant recently in her coverage of a self-defense shooting in Cleveland. Her latest op-ed, entitled "A united front against lawlessness," documents how the response to her coverage of this situation is leading to "a new civil rights movement."
Another diamond-in-the-media-rough for America's law-abiding gun owners is ABC News' John Stossel, who has made quite a name for himself by debunking myths that are commonly held as conventional wisdom, often thanks to the same mainstream media of which he is a member.
