In February 2010, Michael Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns began a bus tour across the country. Aimed at supposedly educating Americans to the problem of guns, the tour of lies presents a one-sided view of the issue.
For example, the mobile billboard projects the message that “34 Americans are murdered with guns every day.” That statistic ignores, however, the much larger number of times Americans use guns in self-defense. Even anti-gun researchers -- paid by the Clinton administration -- conceded that guns are used 1.5 million times annually for self-defense (or over 4,000 times a day). (1)
The Bloomberg’s Tour of Lies started in New York City at Times Square and is now making its way across the country. GOA will follow the tour and set the record straight at every stop along the way.
