ABC News is running a crime special this week focused on guns, and they are relying on an outlet that counts self-defense shootings as gun violence.
Breitbart News reported that the week-long special is framed as a focus on gun violence across the country. However, in the midst of coverage, ABC News admitted they “dug” down and discovered “violence occurs disproportionately in poorer, urban areas — from Los Angeles to Chicago to New York City.” In other words, Democrat-run cities.
Nevertheless, ABC News presents gun violence as a national problem by relying on numbers from the Gun Violence Archive, an outlet that lists defensive gun uses and officer gun uses against criminals as “gun violence.”
