Adjust your dials err TiVos

Tonight, I expect full blown hysteria on ABC news. Why? Well, the name of the segment is the same name as a Violence Policy Center report. And, of course, they get the gun laws and facts wrong:

This surge of deaths stemming from semiautomatic assault weapons seems unnecessary. In 1994, President Clinton signed a law banning the sale of these weapons. But in 2004, President Bush and Congress allowed that ban to expire. Since then, Congress has made it illegal to keep nationwide statistics data on crimes committed with assault weapons.

    How is it illegal to keep stats? As I understand it the FBI’s UCR breaks down gun crime into handgun, rifle, and shotgun, and still does.

    Yeah, better break out the Depends over at ABC tonight.

    The number of lies and misrepresentations in one short paragraph is impressive. Kudos to the author.

    Keep it up, ABC/VPC:

    If at first you don’t succeed, lie, lie again.

    Well, one thing is heartening: Hardly anyone will watch it, and half of those who do will be snickering at it.

    John Timoney isn’t fit to eat my shit. I’m so sick of him pushing these lies, and the media eating it up.

    Arms race? You have to be kidding me. This is what happens when people “trust the criminal”.

    Simple solution, universal carry, as envisioned by the founders in the constitution. Criminals don’t fear the police because there are so few of them. Let them fear the citizens. That will level the playing field. There are more citizens than criminals.

    Too simple a solution, isn’t it?

    Too simple and would work, which means that it will never happen. Plus, all those guns in the hands of honest citizens? The antis would be screaming in their sleep!
