The media, along with their cohorts on the left side of the political aisle, haven’t skipped a beat in their diatribes against the Second Amendment as of late.

Spurred by the Valentine’s Day mental health massacred at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the left has turned 2018 into a tumultuous one for the right to bear arms.  Driven by emotional manipulation and the exploitation of dead children, the liberal anti-gun cabal has managed to push a number of ridiculous new regulations, (read:  Infringements), against our Second Amendment into reality.

But how does this narrative stack up against the reality in America?

Not very well, says at least one study.

The number of permits to carry concealed weapons in the U.S. has jumped to more than 17.25 million this year, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center.

That’s an increase of 890,000 since last year, according to the gun advocacy research group, which has found that the growth in permits has been continuous over the years.

And, in a fantastic twist of fate, the Second Amendment is gaining popularity against some of the most staunchly democratic voting demographics out there.

It also found that the number of women and minorities with permits has continued to climb.

“That increase in women and minorities mirrors their changing views on guns,” said Lott, a Fox News columnist. “A poll by (the) Pew (Research Center) helps to explain why there has been such a large increase in concealed handgun permits among blacks and women. The poll shows a 25 percentage point increase in the proportion of blacks with a favorable view of gun ownership. This is the largest increase of any group.”

Lott said the increase among all women was 11 percent, and the increase among men was 8 percent.

This is the sort of thing that makes you scratch your head and wonder where all the outrage that we see on television regarding the right to bear arms actually comes from.

We have a good guess:  The mainstream media itself and its reliance on hysteria to make the ends meet.
