MOC responds to bad editorial supporting SB 789 veto.
« on: January 29, 2015, 10:07:13 AM »
A few weeks ago the Traverse City Record-Eagle posted an editorial supporting Governor Snyder's veto of SB 789 with a significant amount of misinformation. This morning, they finally posted our response.

Quote
"Here’s the dirty little secret Gov. Snyder and other anti-gun advocates didn't want you to know — SB 789 added protections for [domestic violence] victims, not reduced them."

Good job, Tom.  That original editorial made my head hurt.

More proof that We Report, You Decide (Using Faulty Facts That We Reported).

Tom Gresham of Gun Talk is constantly promoting "truth squad"

Almost 10 years ago I created the Truth Squad. The idea was simple. My belief is that the general media is hugely biased against gun owners and gun ownership. This is so clear that it defies debate. It's hard to get the truth printed or aired. One way to do that, however, is in the letters to the editor of many papers. Clearly, newspapers are less important today than a decade ago, but remember that politicians read the letters section to know what the public is thinking and saying. It has impact.
