Next Step: Just Make Stuff Up?

posted on May 15, 2015

For more than 90 years, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has been tasked with making surplus U.S. Government firearms available to properly vetted citizens (in a process more rigorous than that for normal purchases) to support general marksmanship and firearms safety. The program has recouped substantial money for the government through its programs, and put firearms of historical interest in the hands of shooters and collectors alike. 

Now, spouting demonstrably false terms like “untraceable” and loosely asserting that they are “popular crime guns,” a supposed Army white paper—although it contains no definitive sourcing references at all—appears ready to sabotage the sale of roughly 100,000 highly collectible M1911 pistols. To the knowledgeable eye, the document has every mark of a “put-up” job, with strange terminology, statistical quasi-facts and crucial omissions.

How like the Huffington Post to forward a shabby, Dan Rather-esque game on the unsuspecting public—and at the expense of liberty.
