Nowhere is the dearth of opposing opinion more apparent than on the opinion editorial pages of major newspapers.  Syndicated columnists are given space, but local columnists with a right leaning political perspective are few and far between.  Such was my situation as a freelance columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

What do a transgender rights activist, a liberal arts professor, a civil engineer, and a second-wave feminist have in common?

They are all authors who decided to join the Everytown Authors Council in the liberal fight against gun rights, or, in their own words, “gun violence.”

A new special promises to bridge the partisan divide on the national gun debate ... but so far it sounds like more of the same. Comedy Central routinely takes a pro-gun control position through its comedic programming. Consider The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Inside Amy Schumer as Exhibits A & B. You may want to add Jordan Klepper’s upcoming special to that list.

The controversial Netflix series Dear White People was finally released on Friday, April 28, and let me tell you, the "dear" in the title is NOT a term of endearment. In fact, to quote one of the show's writers, F*** White People would probably have been more appropriate, with cops and Republicans being singled out for particular hatred.

On Monday, conservative columnist Stacy Washington was suspended/terminated from her job as a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and companion website stltoday.com after she defended the National Rifle Association (NRA)on April 28 from a ludicrous suggestion that they’re similar to ISIS.

Reminiscent of Scandal’s 2015 winter finale episode, which showed an abortion set to the song “Silent Night,” the second episode of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, “The River Styx,” had Mary end someone’s life to Sarah McLachlan’s “Full of Grace.” On Sunday night’s episode, the 15-year-old son of a woman suffering from ALS holds life-ending “nurse” Mary Harris’s (Caroline Dhavernas) partner, Des (Richard Short) at gunpoint. The son, Charlie, demands that Des and Mary kill his sick mother. When Mary finally shows up to deliver the life-ending drug, Charlie plays his mom’s favorite song, “Full of Grace,” while Mary injects her.

The New York Times has an unhealthy obsession with firearms. Recently the paper came in for mockery for a signed editorial that actually attacked the National Rifle Association for featuring guns in its gun museum. On Wednesday it trustingly latched on to a dubious study showing a correlation between gun ownership and road rage killings. Christopher Mele penned “Firearms and Drivers, A Lethal Combination – Rapid Rise in Road Rage Since 2014.”

In a report which comes off as something it felt obligated to address but with as little meaningful information as possible, a story at CNN.com tells readers that "Murder Is Out of Control" in Baltimore — to the point where the city is begging the FBI for additional help. The story is so utterly devoid of background that those who haven't followed the city's woes closely could read it and believe that the problem just came along this year.

Washington Free Beacon writer Stephen Gutwoski on Tuesday exposed the insanity of a New York Times op-ed complaining about all the guns in the National Rifle Association’s gun museum. Francis X Clines whined on Monday, “There are thousands of ingenious, gleaming rifles and handguns in displays about America's gun-rich history of colonialism, immigration, expansionism and vigilante justice.”

Based in a city that’s the murder capital of the country with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, it was only a matter of time before NBC’s new spin-off show Chicago Justice dealt with the issue of guns. But the surprise was how they handled it. Star Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) is the only adult who defends gun rights in a story that sheds a light on what conservative students face on liberal campuses.

If it sounded like Wednesday’s episode of Designated Survivor was straight from a gun control organization’s playbook, you would be right. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon’s Steve Gutowski, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence advised on the April 12 show in which “President Kirkland” (played by Kiefer Sutherland) lobbies for anti-Second Amendment legislation to pass the Senate.

The latest episode of ABC’s Designated Survivor made it abundantly clear that the conspiracy element of this show is merely a thin patina of intrigue allowing the writers to wipe away Republican congressional majorities and fantasize about the “progress” they could be making in the wake of a massive crisis. The April 12 episode doubled down on last week’s anti-gun rhetoric, mentioning “background checks” once every 3.8 minutes.
