The Plain-Dealer's Raw Deal

Most NRA members know the facts: Firearms are used defensively to thwart crime between 1.5 and 2.5 million times every year - mostly through the mere presence of a firearm.

With so many states passing Right-to-Carry legislation, the number of defensive gun uses might be even higher today.

We rarely hear about these uses of a firearm, because the gun is almost never fired. So a police report is never taken, and the press never writes a story.

But even the most amazing armed citizen stories are often ignored by the media.

Chad Baus from The Buckeye Firearms Association reported that the Cleveland Plain-Dealer has ignored a recent armed citizen story.

As Chad points out, not only does the Plain-Dealer ignore a newsworthy armed citizen story, it also has a habit of printing the names of area citizens who exercise their Right to Carry.

It seems the Plain-Dealer will use its pages to harass gun owners, but not to report when gun ownership stops crime or saves a life.

If I lived in the Cleveland area or subscribed to the Plain-Dealer, I'd pick up a pen and write a letter to the editor letting them know that gun owners are onto their game.

Then I'd look for another place to get my Second Amendment news.
