Progressives Propose Gun Myths to Stop Progress

Gun deniers and the anti-rights advocates, largely out of blind fear, continually invent gun myths, a projection of their internal terrors. From "cooling-down periods" to dum-dum bullets, they interfere with focus on the real problems. Here is a list of dozens of phony stoppages to crucial programs like Arm-The-Pilots and national carry, where guns didn't "just go off."

It's the beginning of a series I'm doing examining the myths the left puts in the way of stopping crime, the global muslim jihad and psychotic spree murderers. They preserve the myths (and invent new ones) to create political capital that helps attack our rights in an effort to disarm the public (which they feel will make them safe -- but won't).
