Semi-automatic lies and inconsistencies
If you want to convince me that you have a position worth considering, the worst thing you can do is lie to me!
I admit I'm still relatively naïve about how much totally false information is disseminated on the Internet as absolute fact and accepted and believed by a broad range of people, people like me.
I was just sent an urgent warning that doctors and nurses have begun asking patients about personal gun ownership totally out of context with the reason for the visit. It's stated on this Internet piece that the questions are part of new Medicare regulations and that a yes answer would result in the loss of a concealed carry permit and, if the patient, is a veteran, the VA would report it to Homeland Security
All of it, either a distortion of reality or blatantly untrue. And while I check these things with services like Snopes and Fact Check, I am pleased that the story has also been discounted by the National Rifle Association.
So please, please be cautious and vigilant, because the government is going to confiscate all firearms? Nonsense!
Just watch out for the anonymous dealers in fear.
