How big of a wake-up call are the Obama scandals, especially the ones surrounding the seizing of phone records from the Associated Press and the IRS’s targeting of conservatives? So big that two of the media’s most shameful and shameless gun control advocates — Joe Scarborough and Piers Morgan — have finally conceded that arguments made by pro-Second Amendment activists against the expanding of background checks might not be so ridiculous.
In a roundtable discussion on Friday’s “Morning Joe,” Scarborough said that because of the IRS scandal, “My argument is less persuasive today because of these scandals.” He added: “People say, ‘Hey, if they do this with the IRS, asking people what books you read, then how can I trust them with information about my Second Amendment rights?’”
Mika agreed completely: “That is a really, really good point.” Even the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein agreed.

The tide just might be turning.
Sad that these pundits are opining based mostly on their personal feelings.
There are actual studies (from gun control advocates, no less) and fact-filled graphics to back up the gun owners’ viewpoint that more guns make us safer.
One bit of coverage of this is here:
In that short read are 8 fictions debunked and numerous graphics to make this easier to see.
Notable are ….
Fiction 1: Armed Resistance Does Not Stop Mass Murders
Fiction 6: The U.S. Is One of the Most Violent Countries
the AP scandal,
and HOLDER said it was dangerous, and life threatening for AMERICANS,
he said the most dangerous leak he ever heard of, putting lives in danger,
he and OBAMA had no second thoughts putting the BENGHASI AMBASSADOR and the SEALS in danger,
they did put their lives in danger, they where warned in july following 6 more calls,
so don’t give us that kind of answer to why you sneaked in THE JOURNALISTS AND NEWSPAPER OWNERS,
you and OBAMA have screwed big time the future of the AMERICANS SECURITY,
because you smear the secret bond between the JOURNALIST AND NEWS PAPER OWNER,
with their best reliable sources who require to be incognito so to go on doing it,
HOLDER, ah I DUNNO, oops no , I haven’t seen it, I can’t answer that he ha hey
