“Automatic weapon”…”Illegal magazines”…
I’m not necessarily opposed to all forms of gun control. But if the debate is framed by people lying about the circumstances of crimes committed with guns, then there’s doubtlessly going to be people who have the wrong impression.
And the liars know it. That, in fact, is exactly why they lie about the circumstances.
Many are willing to give these folks the benefit of the doubt, thinking that they are mereling misinformed. But this debate has been going on for so long that it’s difficult for me to accept that someone would not have these simple facts, the facts that are at the heart of the gun control issue, in line with reality. I just can’t believe that they’re (and I’m speaking generally) so clueless that they’d constantly be getting this sort of thing wrong. They must be lying.
