I have to comment on the Feb. 18 Point Of View by the local representative of Michael Bloomberg’s front group the Alliance for Gun Responsibility which is also backed by local anti-gun billionaires.
Her ignorance on firearms and her ideological allegiance to the radical Left’s narrative is so profound and shows how much she has been brainwashed and indoctrinated by anti-2nd Amendment gun prohibitionists.
There isn’t room here to rebut all of her statements, statistics and references, but there are numerous incongruities.
Gun violence is an Orwellian propaganda term made up by the Liberals used to conflate criminal violence with suicides and accidents in order to push polices to restrict gun ownership and access.
The Leftist term assault weapons is to instill fear in the uninformed and ignorant voter base.
It appears the DOJ and the CDC referenced in her article have been politicized and weaponized by the present administration to serve its anti-gun agenda.
The NRA is the oldest civil rights organization in the country and not just for hunters.
Gun manufacturers took advantage of the demand for their product after the assault weapon ban sunsetted.
That’s free enterprise and capitalism.
The IR-15 assault-style rifle for children is to teach them safe use and handling of sporting rifles.
She ignores what I think is a fact: that all the criminal violence mentioned is a direct result of Democrat progressive policies and strategies, not guns.
