Former NBC News reporter Katie Couric was caught editing a gun control interview with a gun rights group to make it present a completely misleading conclusion!
The left has been lying about gun control for decades so it does not come as a shock.
This blatant editing hoax in her new documentary Under The Gun could taint Couric’s reputation for a very long time.
The editing scheme also proves that the gun control mantra has to be a false narrative in order to convince!
The hoax begins with Couric asking members of the pro-Second Amendment Virginia Citizens Defense League the following question:
“Let me ask you another question. If there are no background checks for purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
In the final documentary, the gun control question was answered with nine seconds of dead silence and blank looks on the faces of the interviewees.
That was far from what happened.
Couric’s question was actually immediately answered with plenty of great answers.
Here is the deceptively edited interview between the journalist and the gun rights activists:
Here is the actual original audio from the interview:
Katie Couric proves on the issue of gun control, she is no more than a blatant propagandist.
The Director released a statement admitting the group’s appearance was edited, yet they claimed they did not do it to be deceptive. Yeah right!
“There are a wide range of views expressed in the film,” Director Stephanie Soechtig said, “My intention was to provide a pause for the viewer to have a moment to consider this important question before presenting the facts on Americans’ opinions on background checks. I never intended to make anyone look bad and I apologize if anyone felt that way.”
Couric herself refused to apologize for the lie, only saying that “I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.”
Yeah, I bet they were proud of themselves, until they got caught!
The gun control crowd struggles, like with many of the lefts hair brained schemes, to deny the truth as it flies in the face of their agenda.
The false narrative is vital to keeping the public on their side.
It has been proven time and time again that gun control does not work
Pretty simple, criminals are criminals because of their refusal to obey the law.
ALL the massacres that have happened have been in Gun Free Zones!!!
The state with the worst gun crime stats? California!
Guess what state has the most stringent Brady Gun Laws? CALIFORNIA!
The city with the worst gun crime stats? Chicago!
Guess what city has the most stringent Gun Laws? CHICAGO!!!
Katie Couric knows this! She already knew the answer to her gun control question!
“States with the largest increases in gun ownership also have the largest drops in violent crimes. Thirty-one states now have such laws—called “shall-issue” laws. These laws allow adults the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness.” ~ John Lott
This is definitely one of the finest 2nd Amendment speeches I have heard! From former Marine, Missouri State Representative Paul Curtman!
“Our liberty hinges on the question on whether or not you believe you own yourself or whether or not you believe someone else owns you…I would argue that we own ourselves!”
