You are not wrong. The widespread misinforming of people re: gun facts is widely known by the media themselves. (Slate even admitted this in an article sev. years ago 鈥淚f the media wants a healthy conversation about firearm laws, it needs to stop getting basic gun facts wrong鈥. (The Media Keeps Misfiring When It Writes About Guns)

What is interesting is that Slate here is admitting it is not only true, but known to be true, widely known, virtually taken for granted among the media themselves. This begs the question: If getting their facts wrong is a known problem why not correct it? The answer is obvious and suggests these inaccuracies are not errors but deliberate, and on purpose.

If you know there is a widespread problem of false information, ignorance, and bias among your own industry, and do not correct it, when the tools to do so including research staff are at your fingertips, it is deliberate.
Yep, see --> Why anti-2A is stupid

Though I agree that the majority of MSM folks are embarrassingly uninformed about the world of firearms, I don't think it's usually intentional, but rather the product of lazy reporting, resistance to educate themselves, and a desire to rely on a few gun-related buzzwords that they think make the story sound more knowledgeable than it is.
Yes, thus they should not comment.

Basic rule of reporting, know wt-f you are taling about. Or do as WH Press thing does, deflects all questions to other parties.

I've heard that too, several times China has called for US gun control. As to why, I recall a statement that an Axis gentleman allegedly made in WWII that one should not invade the US because there were too many privately owned guns. something about a rifle behind every blade of grass.
I'm of the opinion that the CCP doesn't need to invade anyone, because they can merely get politicians around the world to copy their policies (like lockdowns, social credit [i.e., digital identity'] etc.). But gun control would be a big help to anyone who did...
No reason to single out the CCP tho, pretty much every other country hates the US 2nd amendment because it makes their own governments look bad, their people look to us and say "how come they are free to do X and we aren't?" I mean pretty much every other nation has little or no true 'gun rights' and so we make them all look bad to their own people. Look at Canada.
When engineered pneumonia sets in, guns don't matter, it's like walking over fish out of their bowl. O crap, I just described DARPA candidate SARS.

US like "we got guns, lots of them, we shoot you dead when you come"
CCP like "we engineered new SARS, we send it to you from here and watch you keel over".

Indeed. I lived among Indians on an Indian reservation, where the people referred to themselves as Indians, and I was unaware of anyone ever taking umbrage at being identified as an Indian (much less insist on being called Native American or Indigenous). But of course that was before the "Woke" phenomenon began dictating what people should be called or should call themselves.
When you boil it down, the woke BS is very insulting.

Using words "Native" and "Indigenous" is on same level as "ahhh, now we recognize you, but we'll now use our words to describe your kind".

Before white man came along, Indians were Indians. After white man came, Indians became American Indians.

Not funny, but now CA wants to pay black people $5mil, yet still won't pay Indians for everything white man took from them? Indians (and everyone else) should be outraged around this black payback BS!
