The op-ed page for for Thursday, July 7, 2022 [A11] titled “Gun Debate 2022” was nothing of the sort, in that there was NOTHING from the side supporting the individual right to own and carry weapons.

Rather, it would be better to label it as a full-page advertisement for the victim disarmament cause, dressed up as an op-ed page.

I call the anti-gun movement “victim disarmament” because it’s mostly the criminals’ victims who are going to be disarmed by their proposals — the five-foot, hundred-pound woman being stalked by the crazed six-foot, two-hundred-pound ex-boyfriend, the disabled little old lady, poor people, etc.

You see, the criminals and terrorists keep finding that massive loophole in the victim disarmers’ schemes called “breaking the law.”

Even the token “conservative,” Eligio Padilla, spouted off with the anti-gun talking points about “weapons of war.”

And you seriously wonder why the modern media is so distrusted nowadays?!

What: New Mexico Film Industry Policy Debate

Hosted by the Rio Grande Foundation and the Motion Picture Association of New Mexico

When: Tuesday, January 11, 2011 – Debate at 4:00PM, Reception at 5:00PM

Who: Participants include proponents and opponents of film incentives including Representative Brian Egolf, Senator Sue Wilson Beffort and Representative Dennis Kintigh.

Where: National Hispanic Cultural Center – Bank of America Theater: 1701 4th Street SW Albuquerque, NM 87102

Why: As we approach the 2011 Legislative Session, it is clear that film policy in New Mexico is being analyzed and various proposals are on the table which would have a significant impact on the film industry in New Mexico. Therefore, the policy debate will help educate the public on both sides of this important issue.

With the state facing a $400 million deficit, policymakers are looking to cut spending. Opponents have recommended capping or even eliminating the state film program which cost taxpayers $65 million last year in direct outlays. Proponents have recommended maintaining our tax incentive program which has brought the state over $1.2 billion in qualified spending since 2003, with only $223.9 million refunded.

Cost: No cost to attend!

You can show up at the door, but we’d like to get an idea how many people are coming. So, send us an E-mail to let us know you’re coming: info@riograndefoundation.org.
