Nets Ignore Massive Gun Control Defeat: VA Rejects Assault Weapons Ban


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

The liberal broadcast networks did all they could to smear gun rights advocates who gathered in Virginia’s capital last month. They framed the advocates as terrorists, white supremacists, and generally violent. When they were proven wrong, they still invoked images of violence and lied about violence occurring. But on Monday, the hard work of those advocates paid off then an assault weapons ban was blocked by bipartisan opposition. Of course, the gun-rights agenda was not the network agenda, so it was ignored in favor of railing against Attorney General William Barr.

In a segment on Fox News Channel’s Special Report, anchor Bret Baier led into the story by noting the “huge setback tonight for gun control advocates in Virginia. A bill to ban assault weapons in the commonwealth died in committee today because of Democrat defections in the state legislature.”

“Virginia has become ground zero in the gun-rights versus gun control showdown,” reported correspondent Doug McKelway. “That protest may have paid off today, as four moderate senators crossed lines to join a Republican minority to defeat a proposed assault weapons ban.”
