Making It Up

There is an old cliche that we are all entitled to our own opinion, but not to our own facts. There is a similar tongue-in-cheek line about "85% of all statistics are made up on the spot." Both seem increasingly appropriate when we listen to the new administration.

Here's a refreshing piece:

Making Up the Facts

Did you get that? Maybe a slight mis-speak would be allowable if they said 90% but it was actually 83.5%, but the reality of only 17% of those guns being traced back to the US means that those liberal speakers didn't really care about the truth.

Their agenda, not very deeply hidden is gun control for US citizens. Building the strawman of correcting crime in Mexico fueled by American weaponry is simply the foundation for cutting production, imposing licensing, mandatory registration and draconian restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.
