Pravda, in Russian, means “truth”. Don’t get the wrong idea; I am definitely not a fan of Socialist cant, tiresomely palmed off as truth. But, as the saying goes, even a broken clock is correct twice a day. An article appeared in the English version of Pravda on December 28, 2012. It was written by Stanislav Mishin and is titled “Americans Never Give up Your Guns” .

Attempts to shred the second amendment are nothing new. There has been a determined effort to wrest guns from our nation’s populace for half a century or better. The latest full-court press, which includes escalating statements from the president and the vice fool, promising to bypass Congress (again) “if necessary” to restrict gun ownership, is the latest liberal push to create a problem that has never existed. It doesn’t matter how many facts contradict liberal talking points on gun ownership. The proof that a gun in the hands of responsible citizens deters crime does not seem to matter. Statistics proving that deaths caused by methods other than firearms (including murders committed using hammers) outnumber deaths caused by guns are, apparently, irrelevant. The desperation to eliminate gun ownership as a Constitutional right is under full sail.
