The Truth About Guns

Truth about guns - Right Bias - Conservative - Republican - CredibleFactual Reporting: High - Credible - Reliable


These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: The Truth About Guns is a weblog about firearms that launched in February 2010. The blog posts cover a wide range of topics including gun politics, firearms products and accessories, current events relating to firearms, firearms business, ethics relating to firearms, firearms culture, firearms technology, and other firearms-related articles. The Truth About Guns also has a section dedicated to facts about guns. While we found this well-sourced to mostly credible information and institutions, it is very apparent that the aim is to only present info that favors guns and rejects gun control. Although the information is evidence-based, it is misleading because they only choose to present one side of this story. We rate this source factual in reporting but right biased based on its rejection of gun control and somewhat cherry-picked information. (D. Van Zandt 7/16/2017)
