Media Finds It Hard To Admit That Guns Can Be Used For Good

posted on June 21, 2017

The KMOV news channel in Albuquerque, N.M., posted a story with an innocuous, silly-sounding headline: “Homeowner restrains intruder with duct tape until police show up.” But as pointed out by a post on Twitchy.com, there was one crucial detail left out.

When a local homeowner received a notification from his security system that there was movement inside his home, he phoned his neighbor and asked her to investigate. That neighbor, Shandra Vestal, explained what happened next: “I went to my garage, my husband and I. We got two pistols … Micah and I went into the home with two of the loaded weapons. Micah announced himself to the perpetrator, saying, ‘I have a loaded weapon, get down on your hands and knees.’”

She went on to say that they did indeed secure the suspect with duct tape until police arrived on the scene. But the reporting of this story reveals something about media bias: Such a feel-good story couldn’t have happened because of nasty guns, could it? Nope, must have been that old reliable duct tape.
