Airing anti-assault weapon propaganda

By From page A7 | February 01, 2013

EDITOR:

Anyone watch C-SPAN lately? A one-hour televised program on “Reducing Gun Violence” just aired on Jan. 16 from 11 a.m. to noon.

Janet Robinson, Newtown public school superintendent, just gave a speech in front of the “House Democrat Steering Committee” at the Rayburn office building. It was a solemn, tearful audience of legislators that heard Ms. Robinson describe in detail the bravery of each teacher … each situation, defending their charge of children, each dying in the process. It was totally informative except for one thing. Ms. Robinson repeatedly referred to the shooter as using an AR-15 … no other gun, just an AR-15.

“Shot these children with an AR-15,” “Shot the front door with an AR-15″… etc.

Now, with the precise description of events she laid out for the committee, how did she get that wrong? The answer is my friends, in her anti-gun agenda moment … she lied. With a bawled face, she knowingly abused her position by influencing members of Congress with false and insidious testimony. Police reports clearly pointed out in the news, “An AR-15 was found in the trunk of the perpetrator’s vehicle … it never left the vehicle.” She planted the idea an “assault weapon” was used in this awful crime.

When will it end? When will these heinous types who represent “pillars” of our community be exposed for their criminality? Michael Nutter, Mayor of Philadelphia and president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, spoke next. He did not correct Ms. Robinson, but went on to describe further the lack of gun control as cause of increased violent crime in his city.

Folks, no Snopes needed here for confirmation, I certify the above was aired and is the truth as I heard and witnessed.

We must find a way to stop the propaganda in our media, then we may begin to reduce the gun violence.
