I'll just mention the most blatant one. She said gun control laws would not have prevented Newtown. She didn't say they PROBABLY wouldn't have prevented it or that they MIGHT NOT HAVE prevented it, she said they wouldn't have, which is something that she could not possibly know. No one does. No one knows what would have happened if something had been different.
But, it's worse than that. In the case of Newtown there's a very good chance that if proper gun control laws had been in place and if they'd been followed by Nancy Lanza, the tragedy would have been avoided or if not completely avoided the number of dead would have been fewer. As a gun-rights person herself, Nancy failed to properly secure her guns from her mentally ill son. As a gun-control state, Connecticut failed to implement proper controls on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines until AFTER the terrible events of December 2012.
So, the slick-talking and very-convincing gun-rights shill, Emily, was lying through her pretty teeth when she said that.
Let's play a game. Can anyone identify the other lies and distortions in her pitch?
