Anti-Gun March Organizer: It’s Harder To Buy Deodorant Than A Gun

He really made that claim.

The anti-gun March for Our Lives movement may have the mainstream media on their side, but they clearly don’t have facts. The latest false claim about guns comes from lead organizer of the New York March for Our Lives who took to Twitter to claim that it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to buy deodorant in America.

In reality, guns are one of the most regulated products in the United States. Despite regulations varying state by state, there are no states that have looser requirements than they do on deodorant. It is a fairly common practice to lock deodorant in stores, as it is an item that is often shoplifted, but that regulation isn’t compulsory under law, unlike gun regulations.

Organizers in the anti-gun March for Our Lives movement have a long history of making ridiculous and false statements.  In the initial media frenzy following the Parkland, Florida shooting, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr claimed that someone could walk into a store with $130 and buy an AR-15. Anyone who has ever been in the market for an AR-15 understands how ridiculous that claim is.

Despite that claim being thoroughly debunked, that video clip was featured in the intro to the main March for Our Lives event in Washington, D.C., and Tarr spoke at the event.

Along with Tarr, many of the other organizers have been caught peddling lies to advance their agenda. Perhaps the most visible activist in the anti-gun student movement, David Hogg, lied so often that a CNN anchor was forced to admit that he allowed Hogg to lie on his show without correction.

LA County Sheriff Wanted to Ban Gun Sales After He Released Criminals Early, But Got SHUT DOWN

The Sheriff’s gun store closure was shut down.

Published

on

The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is ordering all gun stores in his jurisdiction to close as part of the state’s crackdown on public activity in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic. He’s also releasing more than 1,000 non-violent offenders from the county’s jail system.

Villanueva doesn’t seem to have let up on anti-gun sentiment as the concerned public seeks to arm themselves in unprecedented numbers. He earlier called the notion of purchasing a gun in the midst of the epidemic a “bad idea,” stating that the general public couldn’t be trusted to posses guns safely while they’re restricted to their homes in quarantine.

It wasn’t enough for him to merely discourage the public from arming themselves. As of Tuesday, the sheriff has ordered all of the gun stores in his county to close as nonessential businesses. Villanueva has been designated as the Director of Emergency Operations by the county, leaving decisions such as gun store openings up to his discretion.

He’s combined his shutdown of gun sales with a release of 1,700 non-violent inmates from county jails.

Villanueva’s combination of a crackdown on legal gun acquisition and the release of real criminals from the justice system seems like a textbook method to inspire concern among the general public, especially considering his sheriff’s department has ceased to make arrests for many petty crimes during the epidemic.

But according to the sheriff, it’s new gun owners who can’t be trusted with responsibility. He slammed other state and county politicians for the handling of the state’s comprehensive shelter-in-place order. He claimed elected officials were undermining his deputies tasked with enforcing the order.

UPDATE:

Villaneuva’s effort to close the county’s gun stores has been shut down upon intervention of the county counsel.

Villaneuva was unapologetic about his move to shut down gun stores in the midst of the pandemic, claiming the surge of new gun owners represented a great danger that necessitated their closure.
