Which helps us circle back to the original complaint-

CNN (among others) is conducting a disinformation campaign using lies and manufactured drama to accomplish the agenda.

CNN is therefore not my friend nor are they serving the public good.

This is not the free and open debate that the Founders admired.

Or you could just not let that aspect of your lives affect your friendship, for cripe's sake. Talk about beer, or women, or football, or whatever the two of you can discuss without it being confrontational. Or do all of your friends have to be in lockstep with you on all political/social issues?
I've found that I can pretty much base my opinion of someone off of their opinion on gun control. It's just takes a special kind of person to be anti gun. I can also do this with their opinion on Johnny Cash.
Someday I'll be good enough to know if a gun is accurate or not.

About half the households in the US have firearms, so the liberal media bias is directed, the non-gun owners that just don't have a clue...

So all of the incredibly stupid lies, and misinformation propagated by the media and the gun-grabbers has the other half of the population "shaking their heads" as Wayne LaPierre said today.

Fortunately, a "credible" threat of another AWB has all but disappeared...Republicans won't even talk about it, and even Leahy- seemed to dismiss it, along with Reid's backtracking.
