    You would have to show proof that the media has conspired to rig its coverage to cause Yang to lose support. Something like internal memos, phone records, texts, etc.
    Media outlets are private organizations, they program their content based on what they think needs to be covered, or what they think their patrons perceive to want to know.
    Yang didn't generate much interest.

    Now do you have some proof, some tangible records showing that the media is rigged?

    I’m with MeAgain – what is your point?

    I mean do you know anything about the history of Myanmar?

    What has this got to do in the context of US gun control?

    I trust that most of you believe that no one should have a weapon to defend yourself or your loved ones ?

    Not at all. However, an assault rifle with a bandolier of high-capacity magazines isn't a defensive weapon, unless you live in a combat zone.
    If you feel the need to own an assault rifle to defend yourself, you're mistaken. What you really need to do is reassess your life choices.

    Do you drive a vehicle, if so what do you have ?

    You mean the one I license, register, insure, and have demonstrated that I have sufficient education and competency to operate? What's your point?
    What it's not is an M3 Bradley with a 25 mm Bushmaster on it.

    You just described a law abiding gun owner,

    "law abiding gun owner" should not be confused with someone who is "legally able to buy a gun"

    Why do you feel so scared that you feel you really need the reassurance of a gun for defence - what or who are you so frightened of?

    I live in London and I don’t feel so scared.

    Is there anyplace-areas you avoid in London ?

    The FedEx shooter in Indianapolis legally purchased the rifles used in that shooting... Even after having problems in the past with the FBI and police.

    But, hey... it's all good, 2nd amendment and all that shit.

    "Thoughts and Prayers" but we can't talk about guns right after a shooting... (there has been 147 mass shootings so far in 2021... No time for talking)
