If Pelosi Lies About Youth Gun Deaths, What Else Is She Fibbing About?

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been called out by the Washington Post Fact Checker for repeating a blatant falsehood about the number of children who die every day from so-called “gun violence,” and today the Second Amendment Foundation wonders what else she’s been lying about.

“Fact Checker Glenn Kessler plays no favorites,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “and when he slaps Pelosi with four ‘Pinocchios’ for repeatedly using a canard, she’s got it coming.”

Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 100 people die every day from “gun violence,” and asserted that 47 of them are children and teens. But the Washington Post did some math, noting that 60 percent of firearms-related deaths are suicides, and wrote “It seemed strange that so many children would be killing themselves with guns.” The newspaper checked data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and concluded Pelosi was way off base, yet she has repeated the false narrative.

“If Pelosi perpetuates this lie about guns,” Gottlieb wondered, “what else is she being dishonest about? This is the kind of deliberate misinformation that should attract extra scrutiny for anything she says, about guns, taxes, the economy [impeachment] or any other social issue.

“What is truly alarming about this,” he continued, “is that far too many people have accepted Pelosi’s falsehood as fact. She has fabricated a misleading and inflammatory argument in support of further restrictions on law-abiding gun owners and she was getting away with it until the Washington Post Fact Checker called her on it.

“Speaker Pelosi and her anti-gun Democrat colleagues may think it’s okay to dupe the American public,” Gottlieb observed, “but we don’t. Creating a false narrative, and then acting on it, is a bad idea and really bad politics because eventually you’re going to get caught.”

Second Amendment FoundationThe Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

There are ways to interpret anything – in order to make it true. For example 100% of us are someone’s children. Wouldn’t surprise me if ~47% of firearm fatalities occur to someone who still has a living parent. Thus the 47 refers to deaths of people who still have a living parent – thus they are still ‘children’. OK… I get it, nothing new here – she’s a lying *

Well, no surprise here. Did she not perjure herself when she swore under oath that the kinyun is qualified to serve as president of the United States, a blatant lie, as he was NOT a Natural Born Citizen, his pappy being a British SUbject at the time the juniour kinyun took his first breath. So that disqualifies him even if he WAS born in Hawaii, which is highly doubtful.

But isn’t that what commiecrats do best?? Pee down your backside all the while insisting it’s a warm summer rain?? In the dead of winter? They all despise the citizenry they claim to serve, and they’ve been caught on hot mics literally saying how they despise us. Even before Trump, their haughty attitude was infuriating. Honestly I think the reason why they attack Trump so much is because he fights for us, and so he takes the brunt of it. But make no mistake – the real target of all their hate is you & me, because we dared upset… Read more »

Apologies for not spellchecking, meant to write: Frequent daily prayers for this oxygen thief’s death and those of her ilk destroying the America I grew up in. Ready to join in an active role in erasing the horrific damage she has lead to include ignoring veterans to curry favor with illegals of all nations and their welfare stealing refugees as they clamor for the shithole country of origin.

Enjoyed reading your comments the second time as much as the first. Pelosi is one of those individuals who lost her gender identity years ago and now has that look of the walking dead.

Anybody who desires to disarm others can not be trusted by the others. All public servants with the mentality of Pelosi, democrat or not, consider private citizens as the other; lessor other.

Politicians lie. Politicians lie ABOUT their lies, and Pelosi is among the worst in this regard. The problem is, far too much of today’s “news” media is complicit with their lies – particularly the lies of democrats. Even many – perhaps most – of the self-anointed “fact checkers” like Politifake are ruthlessly agenda driven to distort the facts, usually to benefit democrats. Dishonesty about guns is a minor part of their lying ways – politicians routinely lie about everything from animal rights to zymurgy. Thanks to the Internet, the public is now finding out more of what the legacy media… Read more »

This bitch is a pathological, congenital, treacherous, traitorous, LIAR. She lies so frequently and so egregiously that I rightly assume that any words from her mouth are lies. My only surprise would be to discover that she has told the truth about something. That hasn’t happened yet. Have you actually LISTENED to her voice lately? Is she DRUNK? Has she lost the ability, like Biden, to string a sentence together in a way that makes sense? And those TEETH !!!! Has she never heard of implants? She needs to see a dentist and get that taken care of. It isn’t… Read more »

The desire for power is an addiction. Addicts lie chronically to themselves to deny reality to themselves and manipulate others into delusional force field, remembering force is the primary weapon of progressives.

Nancy Pelosi and the democrats have evolved to the point that they now can change their party name to the Socialist democrats of America. When a democrat politician leaves their party, we might do well to understand their basis of departure, that is if they really can no longer stomach the platform of their party. But on the other hand, has that individual become a RINO, only to change their colors and stripes when times become too uncomfortable for them? What exactly is the platform of the republican party? Does it reflect the views of conservatives? If you google the… Read more »

As with most politicians, she is totally ignorant about the subject of which she speaks, only parroting some talking point provided by some staffer or campaign donor. Most will not even question the assertion and the MSM will certainly not.

Propaganda. When I served in the Army I came to expect slanted statements from communist and socialist block countries and outright lies from nations that are run by vile, evil “religions of peace”. I felt sorry for their subjects because there was no chance of them knowing anything close to the truth. These days it’s common practice for elected officials here in the U.S. to slant statements toward their goals. My parents called that lying. So do I. Before someone of such stature speaks it would be wise it they knew what they are talking about. Facts, truth go a… Read more »

The goal of communism is to “rule,” there is nothing more they want to do than “rule.”
If they get to “rule” they don’t have to worry about being a “leader.”

If there’s one thing you can count on these commiecrats for, it’s for them to lie pathologically.

60% are suicides and ~5%+ are justified self-defense. If someone credibly threatens my life or that of my family members or friends, you can bet I’d feel justified using whatever force is necessary. If they die I would feel bad about it, but it would be justified. If they are a child and they die, I would feel sorry for their family – but it would still be justified and I’d get over it.

A lot of these lifer bureaucrats are elected on name recognition alone. Voters don’t know what their stance is on issues, they just know the name and vote for them again and again.

I think you’re confusing bureaucrats (unelected civil servants) with politicians (elected public servants). Demorat politicians are all part of the same racketeering organization (DNC), and yes, there are a lot of “low information voters” that just look for the (D) behind the name and nothing more. Those people are as much a problem as the commiecrat politicians they follow.
