I bumped into this tweet earlier today:
Her statement of Florida not doing background checks on gun sales is obviously mistaken. I thought she meant the background checks Faux Scandal for Concealed Weapons Permits we had back in June. Nope.
This web rag appears to be part of the New York Magazine conglomerate. Being brutally generous and saying the author initially got confused and said it was Gun sales instead of CWPs, he and his editors have had the chance to make the correction since publication and chose not to. They are purposely leaving the obvious lie stand without correction for motives they only know but we can suspect.
If your cause is righteous, why lie?
