Dana Loesch Blasts Media's Crime Coverage In Powerful New NRA Ad

"Moms Like Me" Put Guns In Thugs Faces, Says Radio Host,/font>

In the new "Moms Like Me" ad from the NRA, radio and television host Dana Loesch talks about a side of the news that rarely makes the news: families that are kept safe by armed mothers.

"If a mom puts a gun to the face of a home-invading thug and makes him run for his life, the story gets buried," says Loesch. But, she reminds us, if the story went the other way, if a criminal uses a gun to commit a home invasion against an unarmed family, the cameras "will be at the scene before the police."

Dana's point is true on more than one front. "If it bleeds it leads" is still the guiding principle of our entertainment news class, and the murdered family will always get news the safe one doesn't. There is also the narrative. It is hardly a secret in America that those who are in media, and particularly the news media, kowtow to "progressive" doctrine. They apologize to liberals when they are forced by the facts to question them, they scrape before Democrats as benevolent dictators, and they would not dare give any credibility to the idea that it is okay to want to do something as icky and right-wingy as own a gun.

But the mothers who want to be prepared to defend their families against criminals who will own guns regardless of the legality are the majority, says Loesch, not the minority. And that has been proven time and time again across the country. Activist liberal groups and busy-body leftie politicians use their friendly media to make Americans feel like the issue is undecided, or even turning away from the Second Amendment, but that is just another play in their playbook. Time after time Americans have proven that the right to bear arms is sacred, valued, and, above all, not going anywhere.

They'll have to pry them from America's cold dead fingers, as the saying goes.
