Do YOU want to regain your right in Missouri to effectively protect your own life and your family outside your home? To achieve that, you need to be able to make your case clearly and convincingly, whether talking one-on-one to your next door neighbor or trying to get your viewpoint published in the Kansas City Star. You probably feel very comfortable talking with your neighbor; this guide is intended to provide sound advice on how to prepare to be an effective advocate for this important issue when dealing with the media.
Few issues are more misunderstood by the general public than the issue of "gun control." Many of the commonly held misconceptions result directly from the media's often skewed coverage of this issue. Letters to local newspapers, radio and television stations to protest biased coverage of firearms-related issues can help influence the media's presentation of this subject, as well as inform the public of the facts supporting of our position. Keep in mind that your letters do not always have to be negative. If you see a positive story relating to gun ownership, contact the media outlet to thank them and encourage them to keep up the good work!
MEDIA CONTACT REFERENCE GUIDES
These guides, developed for print, radio and television, will help you contact the various media around the state and nation to express your views regarding "Right to Carry" (or any firearm-related issues), but bear in mind that they're far from complete, and for some areas may be out of date as well. Please email us with corrections or additional contact information from media within your own area (please use "MEDIA" as the subject line).
