Politician Tells Outright LIE When Giving His Excuse For Snubbing Constituents

There’s a reason that the term “politician” has an ugly connotation in our society. Politicians have a reputation for lying, and for lying often.

Sadly, the reality often matches this idea of politicians especially when it comes to the topic of gun control.

Take a recent action by a governor of a mid-Atlantic state. To justify his veto of a bill which supports gun rights, he told an outright lie. It’s disgusting. Zachary Stieber writes,

Pennsylvania’s governor this week vetoed a law that would have allowed carrying a gun in a concealed manner without a license.

Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said the legislation would “only exacerbate gun violence and jeopardize the safety of all Pennsylvanians” if it were not vetoed.

“As communities across the state struggle with crises like gun violence and suicide, Senate Bill 565 was a poorly timed, poorly conceived plan to expand access to firearms and would have risked the lives of more Pennsylvanians,” added Pennsylvania House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton.

The bill in question would have repealed provisions that require people to get a license to carry a concealed firearm.

Here’s the thing: Wolf isn’t stupid. Most anti-gun politicians aren’t stupid (delusional, maybe. Dishonest, often. But stupid? No.). Wolf knows the actual statistics for gun violence and gun deaths when taken in context of defensive use of guns and in context of overall rates of violence and murders.

Legalized guns reduce both overall levels of violence and overall murder rates. So, when Wolf talks about gun violence, he isn’t being honest. Yes, rates of gun violence may be less in that less defensive shootings may occur because he vetoed this bill, but overall rates of violence won’t be reduced. In fact, they’re made worse by his veto of this bill.

The people of Pennsylvania deserve better than to have someone this knowingly dishonest running the executive branch of their state government.

  1. What, a politician lying? Perish the thought … It’s long past time for a new American Revoilution.

    • I agree 100%! I’ll take it a step further, all who don’t want the Constitution, leave America or die!!!!! I’m just fed-up with this bull!

  2. He did the right thing. NO one needs to walk around with a gun on their person for no reason. Just because you think it’s cool, you do NOT need one. If you have the need to carry, YOU need to have a license to do so and show it when asked by law enforcement.

    • We don’t Carry Concealed to be COOL! That is a Stupid Premise on Your Part! We Carry Concealed Just in Case it is Like a form of Insurance, and You don’t get Insurance to be COOL!

    • At 69 I don’t care about being cool, it’s about protecting myself and my family if the need arises. I pray that I will never be in that position.

    • Glenn, people do not walk around carrying a gun for no reason at all. Personally I think they get in the way for comfort.. but in some places it’s necessary to carry one like I do when I go have to go to a bad part of town I don’t know how it is in your town but this country is getting worse by the day

  3. Well Glen when you get your ass in a crack, you better hope there is some cool person around to help you. I carry because of lib nut jobs snowflakes like you,call the Leo’s it will take them a long time to get to you. thats just the way it is. O”S know as soon as they run you ID if you have a CCL.

  4. Glen, glen, glen. How does carrying a weapon that no one can see (hence concealed) make you look/feel cool? The best thing to do before you say something, is actually thinking about what you are saying and thinking, will this shine a negative light on me in any way.
