AN OBSERVATION
By Alan Korwin

Why did the news media hate the Heller decision so much?

Like many politicians and anti-rights activists, reporters conflate gun ownership and criminal activity. To them, guns and crime are synonymous. They believe guns exclude any intent but evil intent. They can’t seem to separate in their minds the difference between tens of millions of decent Americans who own, use and enjoy firearms, from criminals doing bad things in bad parts of town. In fact, “enjoy firearms” is an alien, illogical, impossible concept to such people. They are totally closed to the idea of “the good that guns do,” even though they see armed police all day long.

NYC Mayor Koch said it perfectly years ago—Why would an honest person even want a gun? “You’re not a nice guy if you have a gun... even if you are a nice guy." He had to overlook his own bodyguards and thousands of police to reach such a preposterous conclusion.

You can’t really blame such folks. They are self-insulated from the vast portion of America that trusts and uses firearms on a daily basis. They have no connection to the industry, sport, gun owners or a freedom mindset that recognizes the enormous social utility of firearms. And their circles of friends are just like them, it’s a self-reinforcing closed loop.

Plus, they read their own writings, and it all says the same thing. They see “guns are bad” all day long, and never stumble upon “guns are good.” Guns save lives. Guns stop crime. Guns are for safety. And they just don’t get that guns are why America is still free. You almost have to feel sorry for people whose entire lives are so sheltered that this most fundamental of American values elude them, while they run around thinking they get the big picture.

So Heller was a total shock to the entire crowd. This removal-from-reality effect is what led the Mayor of San Francisco to say this ruling, “just flies in the face of reality.” Or for Tom Barwin, the Village Manager of Oak Park, Ill., where gun rights were totally denied to the public, to say, “It’s just completely befuddling that our Supreme Court would be in alliance with the gangbangers.” They just don’t get it. Their false perception that only criminals have guns is reinforced daily by the “news” without a single breath of clean air. They are uneducated and kept in ignorance. They deserve pity, sympathy, and a trip to the range with anyone who will take them. If they suffer from hoplophobia, the irrational morbid fear of firearms, they should seek treatment.

The other crucial point missing in their thought process may be that crime, and especially gun-related crime, is a function of the bad part of town. That’s an ugly concept, and too many people are in denial about this. Criminal gunfire isn’t a random act—it has demographic, geographic, social and economic boundaries. The police have dot maps of where the bodies fall. You know where those parts of town are, and you know not to go there. Take a look for yourself. Baltimore.

To really end the “gun problem” we must look at the demographics of it, and its connection to the war problem—the war on some drugs. We must stop calling war deaths by any other name. We can beat this thing—when we realize that Heller made sense, and a chunk of society—the chunk that desperately, frantically, irrationally wants guns to “just go away”—is in the dark and looking the wrong way.
