Anti-gun activists lie all the time. They have to because facts don't support their fatally-flawed positions and the only way they can hope to prevail is to lie or twist the truth way out of shape. Example: they emphasize tragedies such as a baby getting hold of Mom's gun and killing her. That almost NEVER happens, and wouldn't if Mom knew how to properly handle a gun. With proper training, such things would NEVER happen. But the gun-grabbers talk like it happens every day. They say “Ownership of a gun makes the owner much more apt to be the victim of a gun accident, or simple murder," which is a patent LIE. A BIG LOAD of stinky brown stuff—you know what I mean. The truth is, a gun in the home makes it much more probable that people will be safe from outside attacks, from simple criminals, to Islamic terrorists out to kill everybody they can who doesn't believe the exact same way they do.
But they don't recognize that truth. They only recognize their own version of “the truth.” Gun truth promoter John Lott says, “Every place in the world that has tried to ban guns has seen a big INCREASE in gun violence and other violent crimes. You'd think that, at least in one such place, one time, the opposite would be true, but it's not.” It's as predictable as the sun coming up in the morning and going down at night. But do gun-grabbers see it? Not a chance. They are completely myopic when it comes to the truth. He says, “No one knows how many times the presence of a gun in the hands of a potential victim PREVENTS a violent crime without a shot being fired. But these instances don't get reported and thus don't end up in some government database somewhere (paraphrased).” An estimate by the Violence Policy Center says this could be happening tens of thousands of times a year. But do the gun-grabbers take note? Does a walrus have a big brush mustache? (Town Hall/John Stossel)
