Today the Washington Free Beacon reported on record gun sales for the sixth month in a row quoting Alan Gottlieb, the head of the Second Amendment Foundation, who thanks democrats for the steady increase,
“Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton are the best gun salespeople on the planet. The more they scream for new gun control laws the more guns walk off the shelves at gun stores. To quote the lyrics of Peter, Paul and Mary, ‘When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn.’”
The truth, minus the rhetoric, is that gun sales have little to do with anything the democrats are actually saying or doing and everything to do with what the GOP, Tea Party and their corporate media machines are doing and saying in addition to so-called “conservative” alternative media outlets like Infowars, Patriot News and others like them spouting their tiresome hysterical cry of,
“They’re coming to take our guns!”
Who is profiting from that blather? The democrats? Hardly. It is themselves, their survival affiliates and their lobbyists that are profiting.
Shame on you, Alan Gottlieb. You are the Liar of the Week on Challenging the Rhetoric. Children’s lives are collateral damage for your ego. To quote Thomas Jefferson,
“The man who fears no truth has nothing to fear from lies.”
