GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips



It’s disturbingly predictable: The far-left, anti-gun crowd continues pumping out lies about gun deaths, gun owners and, naturally, the NRA.

The Washington Post recently published a patently false story that opened with, “States that have more relaxed criteria for allowing residents to carry concealed handguns have a higher rate of gun deaths than states with stricter requirements, according to a study…”

Hold it.

First, a fifth grader knows that sentence makes no common sense whatsoever. Look at Chicago. Look at all the cities that have the most restrictions on purchasing or owning a handgun – they have the highest shooting incidents and the most murders with handguns.

Everyone knows that, even Democrats will tell you that. Well, old fashioned Democrats – not the communist leftists that have hijacked the party.

Second, what study?

It was written by Dean Sandro Galea and Bindu Kalesan – two anti-gun propagandists who have pushed in writing the nation needs, “firearm identification requirements,” a federal “universal” background check law and federal ammunition background checks.

Their “patently false” study was published under the flag of “researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health.”

That’s a dead giveaway that the study is leftist – that’s all that comes out of Boston.

The NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre noted in a recent op-ed in the American Hunter magazine that even anti-gun researchers don’t believe this study. He noted David Hemenway, director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center told the Washington Post, “I don’t believe that,” it’s from an anti-gun academic.

Then last week, I watched Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) again repeat a couple of more big lies to Americans – that we need to federally intervene in illegal online gun sales and stop illegal gun sales at “unrestricted” gun shows.

These two falsehoods have spread like cancer because of the lefts’ premise there are thousands if not millions of illegal gun sales online and at gun shows.

Most of it has been spread by the biggest anti-gun BS spreader on the planet, billionaire Michael Bloomberg (I thought leftists hated billionaires?).

What bunk. 

After a 2 1/2 year investigation, which was demanded by left-wing demagogues Rep. Elijah Cummings, and Senators Brian Schatz and Elizabeth Warren, it was found to be untrue. 

Those three pointed to a 2016 report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which claimed that “anonymity of the internet makes it an ideal means for prohibited individuals to obtain illegal firearms.”

Remember, the ATF was under the strong-arm rule of Eric Holder’s trained deep swampers, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

After all the investigations by the General Accounting Office, the GAO investigators went 0 for 72 in trying to provoke illegal gun sales online.

That must of floored the anti-gun propaganda ministers mentioned above.

In fact, Cummings, Warren and Schatz did not respond to a Fox News’ request for comment on the GAO’s findings.

Imagine that!

Don’t believe me about the study?

The report is titled: “INTERNET FIREARM SALES:

ATF Enforcement Efforts and Outcomes of GAO Covert Testing”

For the full report, released in November 2017 – just a few days over three months ago – go to: https://www.gao.gov/assets/690/688535.pdf 

The NRA has been hammered recently, which will backfire on the anti-gun crowd. I believe more and more citizens who realize the entire Constitution sits on the shoulders of the Second Amendment will join the NRA, the only organization that speaks for millions of Americans who support the Constitution. And I encourage everyone to join if they haven’t already.

That brings up a thought. “When the citizens of the United States of America start allowing emotionally vacuous, uneducated teenagers set national gun policy, they’re in dire shape.”

The problem Constitutionalists face is the far-left Democrats and a media that has relegated it’s Constitutional rights into the socialist trash bin of history. 

As LaPierre put it, the anti-gun crowd’s “goals (are) aimed squarely at our freedom and our right to protect ourselves and our families – a right blatantly and dangerously disregarded by the (media).”

Here is a reminder of what George Washington wrote about the Second Amendment:

“A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of Independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”

Amen, George! 

(Note to citizens: Buy all the ammo you can afford!)
