The liberal left is having a really hard time debating conservatives when it comes to gun control. The biggest problem Democrats have is that they are operating off of emotions and not facts. Guns are scary and people dying is sad and that’s really all they care about. Unfortunately, the facts don’t have any connection to what makes us feel good. The facts are the facts.
Democrats would like us to believe that the gun is responsible for the crime that took place in Florida and if only we had more gun laws this kind of thing wouldn’t happen. That’s simply not true. If gun laws stopped gun crimes then Chicago wouldn’t be the murder capital of the United States and places like Los Angeles and New York City would have no gun crime.
We from Democrats about how we should do what Australia did with guns. Australia confiscated guns and it wasn’t optional. It also didn’t really work.
We hear from Democrats about how you don’t need an AR-15 for hunting. Bernie Sanders said that AR-15s are meant to kill people. That’s not true.
Remember when Terry McAuliffe said that 93 million Americans are killed by guns every day? That’s very not true.
Everywhere you turn, Democrats are spreading misinformation about guns.
Liberals aren’t just getting the facts wrong on guns. They are getting the facts wrong all over the place. Check out what happened when Nancy Cordes tried to corner Trey Gowdy.
From The Daily Caller:
Gowdy further added that he is “fine with doing away with any instrumentality that converts a semi-automatic to a fully automatic.”
“So you’re a member of leadership,” Cordes incorrectly asserted. “When will we see a vote on that?”
“I’m not a member of leadership,” Gowdy corrected, “but I’m happy to ask them when and if we’re going to see a vote. I don’t know that it requires a vote of Congress. I think ATF can regulate bump stocks tomorrow.”
Here’s the clip.
You’d think that the liberal media would at least try to get the facts right. You’d think they would know what Gowdy’s job is before interviewing him. Guess not.
Don’t you love how Democrats are still obsessing about bump stocks? As if somehow eliminating bump stocks would stop mass shootings or stop Las Vegas from happening.
It’s just out of control.
You want to make a difference with gun violence?
Get rid of gun free zones.
From Fox News:
For some reason, people who would never put up a “gun-free zone” sign in front of their own homes, put up such signs for other sensitive areas that we would like to protect.
Time after time, we see that these killers tell us they pick soft targets. With just two exceptions, from at least 1950, all the mass public shootings have occurred in these gun-free zones. From last summer’s mass public killers in Santa Barbara and Canada, to the Aurora movie theater shooter, these killers made it abundantly clear in their diaries or on Facebook how they avoided targets where people with guns could stop them.
