Florida Alert! Where Do Anti-Gun Legislators Get this Stuff????

Some newly elected anti-gun legislators can't seem to resist the media spotlight. Like moths to a flame, some swoop in with anti-gun rants and dishonest, deceitful statements.  

Most recently two newly elected anti-gun legislators issued false statements to media about guns. Rep. Margaret Good and Rep. Cindy Polo both gave disinformation to the media. 

FIRST, REP MARGARET GOOD'S STATEMENT: 

As reported by TV reporter Jake Stofan, "Eighty percent of guns used in violent crimes, were purchased without a background check, said Representative Margaret Good”   Click HERE to see the TV Clip.   

Where Rep. Good came up with that statistic or who fed her that disinformation is a mystery to us.  It clearly is false.   

Even The Washington Post outed Barack Obama for falsely claiming forty percent of guns used in violent crimes, were purchased without a background check. 

In January 2013, the Washington Post gave President Obama “Three Pinocchios” for claiming that 40 percent of firearms are sold without a background check, and noted that the authors of the study upon which the claim is based say, “we don’t know the current percentage, nor does anyone else.”Nevertheless, gun control supporters still repeat the “40 percent” claim in their propaganda materials. Whatever the percentage, the fact remains that the nation’s murder rate is at an all-time low.

SECOND, REP. CINDY POLO'S STATEMENT: 

A statement posted Friday, January 10, 2019  on  Orlando Political Observer  from newly elected state Rep. Cindy Polo (D)  proves once again that facts simply don't matter to the anti-gun crowd. 

Rep. Polo rushed to bash NRA saying NRA sponsored HB-175, but NRA had nothing to do with that bill or any other bill that has been filed so far this session.  Rep. Polo is either ignorant of the facts or is being deliberately untruthful. 

This irresponsible behavior happens all too often after an election.  The newly elected legislators come to Tallahassee determined to “make a name for themselves.”  They issue statements, hold press conferences, and sponsor legislation with reckless abandon, casting aside the facts.

Floridians have a right to expect facts and honestly, not false statements, from their elected representatives.  Rep. Good and Rep. Polo need to be more careful.
