We simply can’t count all the times that Moms Demand Action leaders and their allies at Everytown for Gun Safety have been caught blatantly lying, but the incident captured on film (below) of Kelly Burke, President of the Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action, may be the most blatant ever… and might be a crime.
As YouTuber “Naturalized Texan” notes:
During testimony in front of the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee on Feb 12, 2015, Kelly Burke — president of the Texas chapter of anti-civil rights group Moms Demand — claimed that Texas CHL crime stats are “completely locked down” and not available to the public. That is a bold-faced lie, as the stats are available from the Texas DPS website: https://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/chl…
She then proceeded to label claims that CHL holders are responsible and law-abiding as “anecdotal and conjecture”. That is another lie, as the publicly available DPS stats show that Texas CHL holders are even less likely to commit crimes than Texas peace officers (let alone the general population).
