Bloomberg Crony Challenged on Gun Show “Loophole” Lie

Bloomberg crony challenged on "Gun Show Loophole" lie.
“Everybody, at every level of law enforcement, federal, state and local has always known that the gun show loophole is a major source of guns getting into the hands of criminals.”

Really? Well, no. And yet Feinblatt was allowed to blather on unquestioned about his obvious lie, and unchallenged in any way about the rest of his allegations, for more than eleven minutes.

Because he started with such an obvious lie, truly nothing else he said deserves discussion. But a flub on the part of Feinblatt in an answer to one of Moulthrop's softball questions was also revealing.

After playing a short segment of audio from the undercover video, Moulthrop asked Feinblatt to “tell us a little bit about your own response to this video from our investigators.”

“When we told investigators…uh..when we heard the tapes we were surprised by how brazen the responses were.”

One would expect that, if Bloomberg's cronies had evidence of actual crimes being committed, that their response would have been and should have been to tell actual law enforcement investigators.

And yet the reason that Feinblatt stopped himself after saying “when we told investigators,” and the reason we know he is lying when he claims that “everybody, at every level of law enforcement” agrees with them, is because Bloomberg's cronies have apparently NOT told investigators anything.

Indeed, in preparation for his segment on the show, Irvine confirmed with the City of Sharonville, OH, where some of Bloomberg's minions went undercover, that Bloomberg had not turned over to them any evidence of any alleged crimes. Law-enforcement officials in other cities and states that received visits from Bloomberg's minions have been quoted as saying the same.

Another interesting claim uttered by Feinblatt amidst his false claims and twisted statistics was this:

“We think that most gun sellers obey the law. We think that gun shows are good events where people with like-minded interests come together and share their common enthusiasm for hunting.”

Gun shows are all about hunting? Really? Well, no. And if they truly believe that most gun sellers obey the law, then why won't they agree with gun rights proponents that the problem is one of enforcement, rather than something that demands new laws which will strip away the rights of what they agree are the majority of law-abiding sellers? Unfortunately, Moulthrop never asked. Read more
