Liberal Washington Post Admits Biden’s Gun Violence Claim Is ‘Not True’

The Washington Post debunks Biden's false claim that gun violence is the leading cause of death for children, revealing manipulation of data.

In a stunning twist that’s got the D.C. elite spilling their morning coffee, The Washington Post, that bastion of anti-gun orthodoxy, finally called out the Biden administration on one of its favorite misleading mantras on gun control. That’s right, folks, in a move as rare as a straight answer from a politician, the Post debunked the claim that “gun violence is the leading cause of death for children” and rated the claim as “Not True.” But let’s not get ahead of ourselves thinking this heralds a new dawn of unbiased reporting.

This reluctant admission from The Washington Post, a paper that’s never met a gun control proposal it didn’t cozy up to, does little to change the narrative they and the Biden administration have been peddling. Despite the clear-cut evidence, it’s a safe bet that President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and their chorus of gun control zealots will keep singing the same old tune, regardless of the facts. They’ve been using this claim as a blunt instrument to hammer home their point, ignoring the reality that it’s about as hollow as their promises of bipartisanship.

Joe Biden started his presidential campaign with guns blazing against firearm manufacturers, labeling them “the enemy.” Now, he uses this debunked claim as ammo to push for more restrictions on our Second Amendment rights, all while conveniently ignoring the root causes of violence or the failure of soft-on-crime policies. It’s a playbook as predictable as it is ineffective, aiming to chip away at gun rights under the guise of protecting the kids.

Let’s not kid ourselves; the Biden administration’s obsession with pushing for more gun control isn’t about solving problems—it’s about control, plain and simple. The real issues, like the border crisis or inflation, don’t even get a look. It’s all abortion, all the time, with a side of gun control for good measure.

The Washington Post’s fact-check, albeit grudgingly done, shines a light on the administration’s fast and loose relationship with the truth. Yet, even as the Post admits the claim is false, don’t expect a sea change in the media landscape. The narrative is too precious to let a little thing like facts get in the way.

This is the world we live in, folks—a world where the truth is malleable, where the rights of law-abiding citizens are under constant threat from those who would rather legislate than lead. It’s a reminder that we must remain vigilant, pushing back against the tide of misinformation and standing firm for our rights. Because if we don’t, who will?
