I don’t have the video, but Matt Lauer from the Today Show was just interviewing an NBC talking head and the talking head inferred – again – that you can buy a gun at a gun show or online without a background check. This is an outright lie when it comes to online purchases, and stretches the truth on gun shows.
The discussion on NBC occurred about 7:08 a.m. ET. Along with the lies, NBC keeps mentioning the “90 percent” of Americans who think background checks should be expanded. Well, when you keep telling them over-and-over that people can buy guns online without a background check what the hell do you expect? These are not mistakes, these are outright lies and misrepresentations to support a political agenda.
I’m not going to explain this again, I just want everyone to know the media is lying to you. I’ve demanded a retraction from Lauer. We won’t hear from him, bu the low-information voters suck this stuff up.
@MLauer – We demand a retraction. You can't buy firearms online w/o bkgrnd check. Almost all gun show purchases include checks. Will u fix?
