Watts The Truth?

posted on April 9, 2015

Shannon Watts, the head of Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action, recently tweeted a fiction to dupe left-wing bloggers into hysteria over the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville.

Watts twisted one fact from an article in The Tennessean to imply that NRA members would not be allowed to carry in the Music City Center, which is absolutely false. As always, display guns on the trade show floor are rendered inoperable. However, licensed concealed carriers will be able to carry in the Music City Center, per Tennessee law. Lazy journalists like Dan Friedman of the New York Daily News fueled the non-fire, claiming, “The NRA has banned working guns from its annual convention.”

In the past, Watts falsely claimed “they don’t allow guns … even at the headquarters of the NRA,” and that when it comes to good guys with guns stopping bad guys, “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.” As Dave Kopel’s well-researched A1F feature shows, Watts will apparently say anything. 

And journalists like Dan Friedman will apparently believe anything.
