Donald Trump releases an in-depth policy paper supporting gun ownership and the media ignores it...

After criticizing Trump for lack of substance, the media, including FOX and other so-called conservative websites, have focused on Trump not calling out a town hall attendee who called Obama a Muslim. They have mostly ignored his substantive paper on our Second Amendment rights. In the last two weeks, all the media have been trying to take out Trump and replace him with Carly Fiorina. We are constantly hearing about one obscure New Hampshire poll that showed Fiorina in a statistical dead heat in that state. The poll respondents were very narrowly chosen (voted in the last three Republican primaries and general elections in addition to the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Primary) and likely didn't include some of Trump's broader support. They ignore a national poll from a better known polling organization that shows Trump gaining support after the CNN debate.

Via Breitbart:
On September 18, Donald Trump released an in-depth position paper on his gun policy, but many people never saw it because the media was too fixated on one comment about Muslims from a Thursday town hall meeting to dig into it.
Breitbart News dug into the position paper, reporting Trump’s contention that “concealed carry is a right, not a privilege” and his belief that “assault weapons” bans and “high magazine” bans are wrong-headed moves that only reduce the firearm and self-defense options available to law-abiding citizens.
But CNN is focused on the fact that a questioner at Trump’s September 17 town hall meeting made a comment about Muslims without Trump countering the questioner’s claims. The questioner suggested Muslims are “a problem in this country”—claiming Obama is Muslim—and then talking about how important it is to get rid of alleged training camps in the U.S. where Islamists hone their skills of attack.
