Really? White House: "Shooting an all too common' example of gun violence"

Following the recent live-televised shooting of a TV reporter and her cameraman in Virginia, the White House Press Secretary repeated the lie that gun violence is becoming "all too common".

Well, you can file the headline to this blog under "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it".  A quote that is attributed to Hitler's propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

The fact is that gun violence has become substantially less common in this country. As National Public Radio (NPR) reported, the Obama's Bureau of Justice noted:
"Firearm-related homicides dropped from 18,253 homicides in 1993 to 11,101 in 2011 and nonfatal firearm crimes dropped from 1.5 million victimizations in 1993 to 467,300 in 2011."

This only shows that the White House will lie through its teeth to promote their gun control agenda.  Or, for that matter, every agenda they have ever put forward.
