Over the last 25 years, gun control supporters have told more lies and spread more misinformation and disinformation in the context of the “assault weapon” issue than perhaps on any other gun control issue of our time.
Check it out:
Gun control supporters have lately used the 20th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s signing of the Brady Act into law as an excuse to repeat their demand for “universal” background checks. Even though most people who commit crimes with guns defeat the Brady Act by getting their guns by theft, on the black market, or from straw purchasers, anti-gunners have portrayed the law as having saved countless lives.
Nevertheless, the gun ban movement is altogether ignoring two other significant anniversaries associated with its efforts.
Last month marked the 40-year anniversary of the founding of the National Council to Control Handguns, which in its early days openly admitted that it supported banning the private possession of handguns. It has since been renamed the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and while its handgun banning rhetoric is more muted, its goals are still to ban guns by any means necessary.
