I agree with Rentalguy1, I dont think the facts will support the argument, but that doesnt stop the liberals from using every possible angle to attack the rights of those they despise (namely... us)
I think my biggest concerns begin when they start using numbers and statistics. Think of the recent scandals that are part of the liberal religion...
all the guns in mexican drug crime murders are from the US!
Truth: They submit the serial number of any guns they recover, regardless of if it was used or not, and we check it for our records, but that doesnt mean it was illegal or used by the cartels! So an M16 produced in europe under license and exported as a military sale to the govt of mexico is now labeled a US supplied gun, simply because the Mexicans said "we found this gun at the crime scene, please check the s/n"
***this is how it works, and I'm not even going to dive into the corruption and incompetence at the highest levels of this administration with Fast & Furious and Gunwalker
Anytime an officer encounters a LEGAL citizen carrying arms those checks of s/n are aggregated as weapons, not illegal, but thats how the numbers are portrayed by the left when they start citing statistics.
Remember the global warming statistics... carbon monoxide and ozone depletion, and they planted the monitoring devices at the end of major international airport runways and right next to power plants, etc etc... Yeah... okay.
I know they are emotional beings and talk themselves into any number of completely false rationalizations, that's going to happen.... BUT... Anytime the left wants to use numbers I start wanting to fact check them and find out where the numbers came from immediately. They love to slant things instead of give a true picture of what the data represents.
