Troll Level Epic: SC Rep Introduces Bill Requiring Journalists To Register. Anti-Gun Disarmanuts Lose Their Minds
By RedFlag News
Awr Hawkins for Breitbart reported:
After South Carolina Press Association Executive Director Bill Rogers reacted to Pitts’s bill by promising to “fight it tooth and nail,” Pitts admitted he is not really concerned with passing the bill. Rather, he wants journalists who easily support gun control to think about the ramifications of such actions. Pitt said, “There’s a perception, and it’s well presented by the media, that the Second Amendment is more of a privilege than a right. [But] if the First Amendment is so absolute, why isn’t the Second Amendment.”
Pitts indicated that the outrage his bill sparked among journalists and onlookers succeeded in making his point. He said, “It has generated conversation — and serious conversation — about the issue. It has already been successful in what I was trying to do and that’s generate debate among the general populous.”
According to the Index-Journal, Pitt said, “Basically, it is the (concealed weapons permit) law with journalists and pens instead of guns.”
The point of the bill was obviously lost on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, who posted this on their Facebook page:
Distain for democratic government? All rights of the people not involving unfettered access to guns? The crazy is strong with these people.
Oh the irony.
If we can stop just one bad story from being reported we should at least try.
It's too easy for someone to walk into a library and and sit down at a computer, write a bad piece of journalism, and mislead thousands of readers.
Nobody wants to take away your first amendment rights, we just want common sense journalism laws to make sure only the right people are reporting on the issues.
You get the idea.
