I agree, it seems as if this is one of the negative aspects of media coverage of firearms/carrying. Sometimes the media either doesn't understand or doesn't intend to convey that ultimately, especially in personal cases that the people are carrying for their own protection, not necessarily to demonstrate or protest. Then some uneducated viewers/listeners come away with the belief that we are actually carrying to protest, or to make a point instead of the real reason why we carry; to protect ourselves and our families! Kind of frustrating! I've met quite a few people unfamiliar with why we carry who see newscasts or hear radio casts and come away with the belief we are solely "trying to make a point". Thankfully they were not biased to the point of where I couldn't help explain to them that we carry and own firearms to protect ourselves, and they might have an inclination to do so themselves.
