Debunking the Myths

I mentioned a few days ago about the Boomersphere, and how it spreads around disinformation. PolitiFact is taking on the common e-mail I’ve been forwarded a few times by concerned boomers. I have mixed feelings on things like this. On the one hand, anything that gets people fired up for action on this issue is good. On the other hand, I like people to get angry about stuff the politicians are actually doing. PolitiFact does a good takedown, and gets the issues largely correct, which most people outside of this issue don’t. But even a treaty to which the United States is not a party is going to have effects on our being able to import guns from other countries, which has a huge effect on shooting here, since many of the popular guns sold these days are imported. To me that’s reason enough to oppose there being a treaty at all.
