The Trace Goes Crazy, Prints True Headline On Election

posted on November 11, 2016

We’ve gone to great lengths to discredit Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun website, The Trace, for the many lies it tells about guns and gun owners. But on Wednesday, in a rare instance of straying away from twisting half-truths and quoting phony studies, The Trace dropped a truth bomb that has to be seen to be believed.

The feature was headlined, “The NRA Placed Big Bets on the 2016 Election, and Won Almost All of Them.” And while much of the reporting is more negative than positive (go figure), the subhead said all that needed to be said: “Election results mark a continuation of the group's impressive success rate when making large investments on candidates.”

Minor kudos to The Trace for speaking at least part of the truth concerning Election 2016. It’d be nice to see them do the same about the Second Amendment in general, the NRA, concealed carry, armed citizens and other important issues dealing with the right to keep and bear arms.
