Anti-gun media blows pre-meditated plan to blame gun owners for attack at Ohio State University..

Ohio – -(  Gun ban extremists were so eager to pin another violent attack on your right to bear arms that they got caught blaming Ohio gun laws for what turned out to be a violent attack on The Ohio State University…. by a person armed with a car and sharp-edged tool.

It wasn’t just professional gun ban extremists like Everytown For Gun Safety/Moms Demand Action for Gunsense in America’s Shannon Watts who began dancing in the blood just a little too soon. Consider this headline from International Business Tribune (and published by, published less than two hours from the first notification of the attack:

“Ohio State Gun laws Are Some Of The Most Relaxed In The Nation

While details of the alleged shooting remained scant early Monday, reports of a heavy police and fire department presence at OSU quickly turned the nation’s interest toward Ohio’s relaxed gun laws, which currently provide some of the most lenient restrictions in selling and distributing firearms throughout the nation.”

Actually, at the time this was published so soon after the attack, the nation’s interest was still fixed on finding out what actually happened. But not IBT/Yahoo’s. Their interest was fixed on their anti-gun agenda. Given the timing of this article (which has since been updated to observe the fact that this attack had nothing whatsoever to do with firearms), it is clear the news organization likely had this report pre-written and programmed for release whenever an attack occurred. There is very likely an article like this written and waiting for every state in our country. (Save for states like California, of course, where, after the San Bernadino terror attack, the media had NOTHING to say about that state’s already restrictive [and impotent] gun control laws.)

There are, of course, NO articles now being written like this (from IBT/Yahoo edited for accuracy):

“Ohio State Gun [Motor Vehicle and Knife] laws Are Some Of The Most Relaxed In The Nation There aren’t any state requirements for permits or registration of rifles, shotguns or handguns [knives, daggers or machetes] in Ohio, and residents can carry concealed weapons [drive motor vehicles] with a permit. Background checks are not performed at Ohio gun shows [knife shows or car dealerships], and the state does not restrict the limit of weapons [cars or knives] one can purchase.”

Nor are there are any tweets from @ShannonRWatts calling for a discussion of our nation’s knife control laws.

The mainstream media should be ashamed, but we know they won’t be. Instead, just as they’ve done after the recent presidential election, they’ll just double-down again on their attack on law-abiding Americans. And this is why they have completely lost their grip on “turning the nation’s interest” to whatever they want.
