Is Joan Peterson a liar, or just crazy?
As I said, I generally think of myself as a Second Amendment supporter, and a month ago, I would’ve probably agreed with the NRA’s position. But the Newtown shooting caused me to re-examine my stance—as is, I think, fitting—and to question some of the rhetoric advocates use to defend weapons like this.
“Second Amendment Supporter”? “re-examine my stance”?
Can anybody point out ANY evedence that Joan has changed ANY of her positions after last December? She’s always been against semi-auto firearms, and failed to EVER claim that ANY firearms were OK for law-abiding citizens to own. Further she has conflated “Assault Weapons” with the murder of her sister who was NOT killed with a semi-auto firearm.
She’s always been against lawful carry and self defense. Further she has conflated the murder of her sister with concealed carry laws, despite concealed carry being illegal at the time of her sister’s murder.
Most likely Joan is simply lying to make herself appear more moderate, but honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if she thought she was telling the truth when she typed that simply because of mental illness.
What do you think?
