It begs the question. If your cause is so just and right-why the need to lie to the public so often?

“What we know is that in States that have imposed those reasonable limitations, there are less gun crimes. There are less homicides.”

— Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), speaking on the Senate floor, June 15
Three Pinocchios

“AR-15-style weapons weren’t legal in the United States until 2004 after being banned for 10 years. It is not coincidental that there was a massive increase in mass shootings in this country after 2004.”

— Murphy, June 15
Three Pinocchios

“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”
Two Pinocchios


(Of course the last one was really 4 pinocchios but you have to consider the source)

If we pass more laws then criminals will surely obey them. ;)

Want proof? Heroin, meth and cocaine are banned nationwide so they are virtually impossible to get.

Why does this not surprise me?
Oh yeah, because gun-banning is insanity.
