Ever since President Obama announced executive actions to curb gun violence, the NRA noise machine and its political/media lackeys have gone into high gear.
Charles Cooke of the National Review claimed the initiatives do nothing, while Rush Limbaugh said the guns of law-abiding citizens will be taken away. Meanwhile, Laura Ingraham and Fox News railed that Obama’s actions are unconstitutional.
Before one falsehood can be disposed of, five more have risen in their place, and the noise machine drones on, drowning out civil discourse in the public square.
An informed public remains the best defense against tyranny (not guns), and until such time as media access can be confined to those who tell the truth, we need to remind ourselves, “Caveat Lector” (let the reader beware).
