Fake “Trump Slump” News, Part 9,427

posted on June 29, 2017

In a strange feature story posted at public radio station wuwm.com in Milwaukee, author Jana Kasperkevic ignored gun sales news released earlier this month and declared gun sales continue to fall since President Trump took office.

In the story, ridiculously titled “Are gunslingers making a comeback thanks to open carry?” Kasperkevic does a somewhat fair job exploring the open carry issue until she drops the bomb: “But as a result, gun sales—which have surged under Obama—have dropped off since Trump took office and are expected to remain lower this year than in 2016. So even if the listener is seeing more people openly carrying guns, that does not mean that gun sales under Trump have flourished.”

In fact, we recently reported on numbers released more than three weeks ago showing that the FBI performed a record 1.94 million background checks last month—the most for any month of May since records have been kept. But apparently Kasperkevic and NPR missed the memo on that new record, which points toward a “Trump Jump,” instead of a “Trump Slump.”
