Propaganda on the Airwaves

Subject: TV Attack on Gun Ownership

[I have sent the following letter to CBS and all the sponsors of "The District" -author]

In case the executives of the CBS network and the producers of the show "The District" haven’t heard, private gun ownership is a right protected by law in a document called "The Constitution of the United States of America" and "The Bill of Rights, 2nd Amendment".

Your constant attack on our constitutional guarantees in the TV series "The District" seems un-American in these times when every citizen of the US is being threatened by sinister forces from abroad. In almost every episode of this, otherwise good drama, private gun ownership is attacked either overtly or covertly. Several recent episodes have had the main theme that somehow guns and private ownership of them is inherently evil. Almost every other episode manages one or more covert digs at gun ownership, even when that is not the main theme of the episode.

If your network wants to present an anti-Constitutional message over the pubic airways, it should do so on one your Sunday morning gab feasts when a you would need to make, at least, a token gesture at presenting an opposing view. By constantly drumming your antigun bias on dramatic series there is no chance for an opposing voice to be heard. This one-sided presentation of a constitutionally incorrect position seems to me to be a misuse of your license to use the pubic airways.

Accordingly I will send copies of this letter to my congressional representatives (probably not a big threat since they are all anti-constitutional liberals like you), NRA, GOA, FCC, all my friends and, particularly, the sponsors of "The District".

Dr. Richard Janiga
Lake Placid, Fl.

P.S. If you have any input to the CBS television network executives you should make them aware that there are many of us legal gun owners out here who are furious about the tone of this program.

[Note: Since sending this email I have viewed another TV program with an even more egregious antigun message. Last week's episode of the highly rated NBC series "West Wing", featured the death of a child by accidental gunshot.

The principal character of this drama had several long monologues berating private gun ownership in general and concealed carry laws in particular.

That's two top rated TV series in one week featuring very strong antigun messages. What's going on here? Our enemies are very much alive and kicking. -author]
