December 14 will be the one-year anniversary of the Newtown tragedy. Just as the MSM have marked almost any possible anniversary of the event (1-month, 3-months, 6-months) we can be sure that on the one-year-mark, they’ll be in full court press. Still . . . Sometimes, discretion — holding one’s tongue at certain times — does more good than trying to inflame the other side. I wonder about this:
A joint coalition of gun lobbyists are declaring Dec. 14, 2013 â€” the one-year anniversary of the massacre at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Conn. â€” â€śGuns Saves Lives Day.â€ť
The Second Amendment Foundation, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and DefendGunRights.com announced yesterday that they will be organizing events in all 50 states on Dec. 14 to counteract the anticipated anti-gun activism on the anniversary of the mass shooting that killed 26 people.
You know how this will play out in the press, with cries of, “Insensitivity, callus,” etc. coming from all the networks and major newspapers.
I just can’t help thinking that there’s a better way to handle this.
