An actually balanced MSNBC article on guns!

Ordinarily known as a bastion of liberalism, MSNBC actually has a remarkably even-handed article on concealed carry. Here’s the kind of thing I’m talking about; the caption on the lead picture:

The .32-caliber semiautomatic that he used to stop a holdup and kill a would-be robber is in the center.

I would have expected the caption to be instead written like this:

The .32-caliber semiautomatic that killed a man is in the center.

The caption focuses on the crime prevented, rather than the act of killing. And the rest of the article does the same. Very interesting. Also, don’t forget to hit the poll!
