Florida Alert! Tell Commissioners that Mary Ann Lindley's claim is false

Thursday, October 31, 2013

            NRA Past President

Commissioner Mary Ann Lindley is claiming that private sales account for 40% of total gun sales in the U.S.

That is not only false, it is a statement that must have come directly from President Obama's TelePrompTer. 

President's Obama's "40% claim" is so blatantly false that even The Washington Post fact checkers reported that it was false.  In fact they gave it a "Three Pinocchios" rating, in other words it's FALSE, FALSE, FALSE.

We need to make sure the Commission supports the citizens of Leon County and not to be fooled by Commissioner's Lindley's obvious lobbying for President Obama.

Commissioner Lindley's aide is responding to constituents by repeating President Obama's misinformation as the reason to take away the rights of Leon County residents. 

CONTACT COMMISSIONERS AGAIN!  Tell them that Commissioner Lindley's 40% claim was false when President Obama kept saying it and it is still false when she says it.
