People Magazine gives False "Fact" in Shannon
Watts Puff Piece Promoting 2A Infringements

In a puff piece with much emotion and very little fact, the author of the People article, Michelle Tauber, promotes public relations expert Shannon Watts as just a "stay at home mom" who saw something that needed doing.

The article in has almost nothing of substance in it. It ignores the funding of the organization by anti-gun zealot Michael Bloomberg. It ignores the law. It ignores the Constitution. It ignores just about all facts involving firearms.

Here is one of the very few "facts" put forward in the puff piece:

As for the idea that reducing gun violence, which disproportionately affects Americans -- the United States is home to 82% of gun deaths worldwide -- is too difficult and complex to tackle, Watts says she "can't fathom" the idea of giving up.

The number put forward, that the United States is home to 82% of "gun deaths" worldwide, is false, by any reasonable measure. .....

The record of Watts and other anti-gun people is all but full to the brim with misinformation - it's one way they falsely broadcast to their audience to gain traction for the cause. The People Magazine statement that "the U.S. is home to 82% of gun deaths worldwide" is beyond preposterous but perhaps not an unexpected deception. It's all but tragic how for the most part such methods do not get exposed to the gullible many who soak up supposed 'facts' and then go about disseminating them, which furthers the plethora of anti-gun untruths.
