Trucks Kill: We don’t need “weapons of war” on our streets

The ‘Left’ refers to the AR-15 as an assault rifle saying we don’t need “weapons of war” in the streets of our cities. Considering how many time trucks are used as bombs and to mow down innocent people, shouldn’t they be calling for a ban on them as well?

There were days not long ago when headlines were flooded with news of erratic, out-of-control SUV’s. In their push to ban the supersized station wagon, the mainstream media seemed to always blame the vehicle and not the driver. The reader often had to scroll to the end of the story to learn the “Evil SUV” actually had a human holding the wheel. Let us review some of these stories from the past.

SUV’s can’t seem to control themselves. Take a look at these actual headlines:

“SUV loses control when ‘brake checked’ after following too closely”
(neworleans.suntimes.com)

” ‘It Was Like a Bomb Went Off’: SUV Crashes into Homes in Lockport”

It seems these SUV’s had a mind of their own and some were able to ‘jump’ and ‘roll over,’ like a dog.

Today the MSM has upped the ante bringing the SUV’s big brother, the ‘Truck,’ into the mix. Every major news report on the terror attack in Nice, France told the same story beginning with the headline highlighting the truck and it continued for at least the first 24 hours.

“Attack by truck kills 84 in France”

So whether it’s the SUV, the gun, or the truck, they can never seem to blame the person. With SUV’s, their agenda was to ban them due to size and fuel efficiency. With guns, they want an all out ban but can’t quite say that out loud. Now we have the truck, America’s lifeblood, acting out on it’s own, or so it seems if you’re sitting at a desk in an American newsroom.

Will they ever change their ways? Not likely, but you can help to expose them by sharing this on Facebook and see what YOUR friends have to say!
