The internet is all a buzz about the fact the Michael Bloomberg’s Super Bowl campaign ad focused on gun violence and not Trump.

This is what he spent millions of his own dollars to air:

Her son was just a good boy who loved football and got shot because guns are bad, and if there was more gun control because politicians would stand up to the big, bad gun lobby, her son would still be alive.

Except… not.

This is an excerpt from an original court document on this case:

The police are dispatched to the scene of a gun homicide This case arises from a gang-related shooting. On September 26, 2013, just before midnight, the police received a dispatch for shots fired in the Lakemont subdivision in Richmond, Texas. When they arrived, they discovered a deceased male, later identified as George Kemp, age 20, lying face down in a pool of blood. He had been shot five times.

At the scene, the police recovered ballistics evidence, discussed more thoroughly below, establishing that two types of handguns had been fired that night: (1) a 9-millimeter semiautomatic pistol and (2) a revolver of either .38 or .357 caliber.  The police investigate and conclude that Coleman was one of the shooters.

The police proceeded to interview several witnesses and received several tips. They determined that two groups of young men, most of them teenagers, had met that night for a fight. On the one hand, there was a group led by B. Dilworth, which included K. Molo, D. Lewis, and Kemp. On the other hand, there was a group led by B. Lacour, which included S. Spence, C. Coleman, and at least three other young men, identified inconsistently throughout the record. 

The police then interviewed the members of each group and further determined that, earlier in 2013, Dilworth and Lacour became embroiled in some sort of dispute, which led to Dilworth challenging Lacour to a fight. This, in turn, led to the two groups meeting in the Lakemont subdivision the night of the shooting. 

A fight ensued, and, at some point, Lacour yelled for someone in his group to shoot Dilworth. Coleman, armed with a 9mm semiautomatic pistol, and another member of Lacour’s group, armed with some sort of revolver, then fired multiple shots, at least some of which hit Kemp, killing him. 

So her son was a member of a gang that met up for a fight, which turned into a gang-related shooting.

But wait, there’s more.

Lacour, who ordered Kemp to be shot was only 17.

So we have gang members, some of them underage to legally obtain handguns, shooting each other in a pre-arranged fight, and somehow that’s the NRA’s fault and now you need to lose your gun rights because of it.

None of this is shocking to those of us who know what Bloomberg and the anti-gun crowd are all about.  They will always lie to get their way.

But now that Bloomberg is running for President, and against Trump at that, I can’t wait to see if his anti-gun bullshit gets fact-checked Trump style.
