According to the majority of the media and most of our elected officials we are not supposed to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few “crazies.” But the acts of a few American “crazies” are enough to judge all Americans who own guns.

After the 9/11 terrorist attack (where almost 3,000 people died at the hands of Muslims) and following the Fort Hood shooting (Nov. 5, 2009, 13 killed and 30 injured), where the sole suspect is Nidal Malik Hasan (a 39-year-old U.S. Army major and a self-proclaimed Muslim), we were told to not judge all Muslims by the acts of a few crazies. And most recently we had the bombing in Boston, which appears to have been carried out by two Muslim brothers, we are again being told to not judge Muslims by the acts of a few crazies.

However, after the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (Jan. 8, 2011, six dead and eight injured), and after the mass shooting in Aurora Colorado (July, 20, 2012, 12 dead and 58 injured) where the sole suspect is James Eagan Holmes, the media and many of our elected officials are judging all Americans who own guns.

Most recently, (Dec. 14, 2012) we had the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and six adult staff members; again the media and our elected officials are judging all Americans who own guns based on a few crazies.

What is going on?

From the outside it looks like the media has an agenda (abolishment the U.S constitution?). History clearly shows that Islam is not a religion of peace; what other religion kills people because of a cartoon. Furthermore, history has shown us that a free and safe society is a society where its citizen is armed.

For you in the media and to our elected officials; please do your homework and be honest about your intention.
