    I don't know if this should be here or in the General area — Moderators please move if appropriate.

    Not all of the mainstream media parrots the anti-gun line. This morning in the Wall Street Journal is an opinion piece by David B. Kopel, from which the following excerpt is lifted:

    The whole article is well worth reading.

    +1.....lets get rid of the "Fish in a Barrel" approach by eliminating the "Gun Free Zones"

    The ONLY thing that deters a Criminal/Bad Guy is the threat of an Armed Victim capable of defending themselves.

    How about a link to the WSJ piece as well? I always like to visit those websites that allow the pro-RKBA side to speak out. Too many only print one side of the debate.

    Could someone please post the entire article? I can't access it thru the WSJ website and would really like to read the whole article.

    That's for me to know and not you!
    The brady guy that keeps showing up on television is getting smashed by the pro gun people that are on there with him, I mean he keeps saying "we need more gun laws" but is totally unable to profer and idea of what that means.

    I love David B. Kopel, but I wouldn't exactly call him a "Mainstream media" person.


    But yes, absolutely everything Kopel has ever written is well worth reading (note the "imagine" link in my sig)

    I don't know about Mr. Kopel, I meant the Wall Street Journal. Pretty hard to get more mainstream.

    Ah, I see ... I believe that NBC/ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/NY Times/Chicago Tribune/etc would disagree with you that The Wallstreet Journal is "mainstream". :p

    But most "average Joes" would, so I see your point.
