A gun turn-in event in North Carolina was laughably painted by the liberal media as a major success.
“Nearly 1000 Take Pledge of Non-Violence in Greensboro,” blared a headline from Time Warner News Triad which wrote the following.
Gun owners also turned in unwanted firearms and ammunition at the event.
Signing the pledge and turning in weapons was spurred, in part, by an increase in gun violence across the city.
This year gun violence has increased 68 percent from last year.
Sounds like a fantastic victory for the gun grabbers, doesn’t it?
While 1,000 people did sign the pledge, the number of “dangerous weapons” taken off the streets was not as impressive.
The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action did some investigating of its own and found out the event wasn’t as successful as the Time Warner report made it appear.
A report by Time-Warner Cable News tried to put a positive spin on things by noting that “almost 1,000 people” responded to take the pledge, leading one to believe that 1,000 firearms had been turned in, but this was hardly the case. As evidenced by the footage accompanying the story, the gun turn-in apparently resulted in a single BB pistol and a single sheathed hunting knife being “taken off the streets.”
