If there is one thing you can count on from the anti-freedom Left it’s that they will always try to spin every story into a victory for their team. The Left have become masters at re-writing history, and spinning new lies out of old truths. The latest examples of their willingness to sell lies in the hopes of avoiding reality comes to us in the fight to defend the 2nd Amendment and ensure the liberties that we have enjoyed for our future generations.
This week, Breitbart reported that Everytown for Gun Safety, Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban conglomerate, was claiming a “win” for congressional inaction on national right to carry reciprocity.
This just goes to show that not only do gun control advocates not tell the truth, they usually insist on telling the opposite of the truth. The fact is that the momentum behind the national reciprocity effort continues to grow, with the number of co-sponsors on Rep. Richard Hudson’s House bill now at 203 and rapidly approaching the 218 votes needed for passage through the House of Representatives.
Barack Obama once claimed that future generations would look back on his presidential nomination as “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal … .” That ludicrous assertion basically set the template for what Everytown is now doing, which is to boldly claim credit for unobservable events that sound good to their supporters. Everytown could tell its donors, “Thanks to your support, we have another day in America where national reciprocity hasn’t happened,” but that doesn’t mean the group itself had anything to do with that state of affairs or that daily progress toward national reciprocity isn’t being made.
But this is nothing new. Earlier this month the Washington Post tried to fashion an article around the premise that gun control advocates “won” because they didn’t lose as badly as they could have in state legislatures this year.
In the past the NRA has endeavored to debunk the gun control mythology that is so often peddled by leftist groups who deal in emotional arguments while playing fast and loose with the facts.
Here are just a few examples:
Please spread the news – the Left is lying to America and the facts are on our side.
