Haslam and guns v. The Shooting Wire
Without belaboring a point, their organization is, indeed, one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Neither, however, does it represent the end of the firearms industry or the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
It represents another obvious sign that the profession once described as the Fourth Estate, journalism, has now decided that it is no longer proper to simply report the news. It is incumbent upon serious journalists to steer the poor sheep of the electorate in the correct direction. As I heard it said earlier this week, the Fourth Estate seems to be looking suspiciously like a Fifth Column movement, naysaying and downplaying anything that might look even remotely like the United States is anything other than the global bully.
Well, the fourth estate here in Knoxville is silent. In their defense, they’re also generally silent on the mayor’s alliance much less that the Knoxville mayor is a member. And all that liberal stuff isn’t applicable has Mr. Haslam is allegedly a conservative.
