I want to hear from journalists on DKos about how you would report on public support for Gun Control laws in the wake of Friday's events.
Citizen-created petitions on the White House's website have netted thousands of signatures on both sides of the issue in just a few days. But the political reality is that crafting meaningful legislation is a tricky prospect.Last I checked, the petition supporting Gun Control was the second most popular petition on the site with 175,000+ signatures. A second petition in support of Gun Control had about 35,000 signatures, and finally much further down the list was a petition asking the President to support gun owners which had a little more than 25,000 signatures.
Gun control petitioners out numbered the other side by more than 150,000. At what point, can CNN break away from their "balanced" reporting b.s.?
I would love to hear from journalists and anyone else on DKos how you would have reported this one.
