When liberals can’t win with FACTS, they turn to lies.
That’s exactly what’s happening with the failing “gun grab” agenda, which sprouted up after the Parkland, Florida school shooting.
Teen activits, like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg have become the poster kids for Anti-gun and anti-NRA propaganda.
Now, potty-mouthed activist Gonzalez is spreading baldfaced lies about the NRA, claiming the pro-Second Amendment organization is “funded” by the United States government.
That is 100 percent NOT TRUE.

On Sunday, a tweet went viral promoting a lie that the U.S. government funds the NRA. An account by the name of Ken tweeted that the NRA should be defunded to give teachers a raise:
lets defund the NRA and give teachers a RAISE. god knows they deserve it.

The tweet has been liked by over 120,000 people despite clearly being based on a false statement.
Emma González — a Parkland shooting survivor who has gained over 1.6 million followers on Twitter for her outspoken, aggressive stance on gun control — was one of the many who retweeted the tweet.
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) pointed out the ridiculousness of the tweet and compared it to an organization that is actually funded by the government: Planned Parenthood.
Fun Fact: the NRA isn’t funded by the gov’t.
Another Fun Fact: they’ve killed no one.
The same can’t be said for government-funded Planned Parenthood. pic.twitter.com/DyPZAu145R

González stated just a few days earlier at an Education Week forum that “you don’t need an AR-15 to protect yourself in bed from a robber at night.” She added:
“You don’t need an AR-15 to have fun at a shooting range. Go join the Army if you want to have fun shooting off a weapon and serve your f**king country. Excuse my language.”
