Wash., D.C. and Beltway Exposed To Gunplay Again

MEMO TO: Beltway and D.C.-area friends and associates

FROM: The Publisher

Click the page to read The First-Responders Report TM

Your morning copy of USA Today features the fourth installment of The First-Responders Report TM, sponsored by and Bloomfield Press (Wash., D.C.-regional edition, 9/9/14, News section). You can read it here:

These are stories of people who are alive today, or who were able to respond first to stop crimes, because they had firearms and were able to bring them to bear.

This news is usually suppressed in national publications, hiding the social utility of firearms and distorting the public debate. We're putting it right into the public eye.

If you're working with members of Congress, please bring the page to their attention. Or, just make your representatives aware of this news. You can do this from anywhere in the country. Do it. Forward this memo or just the links.

The three crime-fighting stories in our current column are dramatic examples the public typically doesn't get to see, that would change hearts and minds if routinely circulated. This is why such stories are quashed, critics say. See our previous columns:

In stark contrast, an isolated freak accident at a remote shooting range recently got saturation coverage for a solid week, spun to portray firearms, and even firearms training for youth, in a negative light. That imbalance was remarkable, according to observers.

You can sponsor The First-Responders Report TM column yourself, with or without name credit, and reach one of the most crucial audiences in the nation. It can also be set to run in USA Today in your region of the country. Call me directly to learn more: 602-996-4020.

If you keep firearms handy for their intended purpose -- to save lives and deter crime -- you should be familiar with this: Click the link.
