License "news" organizations.  Keeping that designation requires their meeting fairness and sourcing standards, like prominent retractions and source requirements.

If they don't get a license they have to have label each paragraph with the word "gossip".

He has been catching hell all over Facebook because of it.
Both Texans and non-Texans are bitching.

People react to the headlines....  "Texas Governor Threatens to Shoot Reporters" and don't bother to read the article.
^^^ This is my main complaint about freedom of speech and the impact of social media ^^^

**** and to be clear, I'm not against our freedoms, or the Constitution, but with freedoms come responsibilities,
and there is no responsibility or accountability anymore.
- Basically social media allows the "yell fire in a crowded theater" scenario 24/7.

This is what actually happened:

Quote
Abbott took some target practice Friday, after signing a bill reducing fees for state handgun licenses. The San Antonio Express-News reported that when he was given his target sheet, Abbott joked, Im going to carry this around in case I see any reporters.

So, as I tried to point out to these stupid ass people,
it appears now that carrying a paper target is now considered a direct threat and people have to run to their safe spaces.


The press starts with a misleading headline,
then people react to it without knowing any actual facts and then it spreads like crazy.
and people believe the crap that they read in the comments and never read the actual article.

This is an example of the headline that gets posted and reacted to:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Jokes About Shooting Reporters While at Gun Range



Sadly, this country is pretty much done at this point.

reading the news on the internet this morning....one headline following another :

1st one :  "Attacks like Portland's will keep happening unless we all fight white supremacy
Washington Post"

followed by :  "'I ain't fit to live': Mississippi gunman kills 8 in rampage
Chicago Tribune"

while both of these "happenings" are atrocious and the perps should be, in my opinion, executed "when" found guilty my question is.....why does the washington post choose to headline the portland story, rather than the more heinous act of the black mississippi dolt ?

a rhetorical question, of course.....

for the record.....I am neither a pro "white supremacist sympathizer" nor an "anti-black racist" - simply want to point out that the washington post is a filthy rag

Still looking into 410s... As soon as I pick one up I'll let you guys and gals know. Took a 12 gauge to the range  yesterday and with target loads it kicked pretty hefty. No way my mom could have fired that thing.

That is kinda what I thought from the beginning. I have back issues and I do not care to shoot a 12 guage.
