Media May Claim Gun Control is Winning But Facts Say Otherwise

Katie Pavlich has a great piece at Townhall pointing out how the media freely repeats Bloomberg's claim that gun control is winning at the state level but when you look at the facts, you see a completely different picture.

For instance, she points out that in 2013, 98 NRA backed pro-gun and pro-hunting bills were signed into law in 33 states while only 21 gun control bills were passed and signed into law in just 10 states. The result was much the same or better in 2014 and 2015.

Apparently, Democratic candidate Martin O'Malley is buying the line that Bloomberg is peddling, but it will likely do the same for him as it has for gun control.

The numbers are on our side.  A recent CNN poll verifies this.  That doesn't seem to stop the media from repeating the gun ban lobby's lies however.
