Atlantic Wire :: Fact-Checking the NRA Press Conference

The proposals and opinions offered by the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre at a press conference Friday have been roundly criticized by gun control opponents already, but is he also wrong about the bare facts? While many of the gun lobby's latest claims about armed security are debatable, and LaPierre's pop-culture references Mortal Kombat? American Psycho? are out-of-date enough to be easily debunked, there were a handful of actual factual assertions in his speech today that we decided to double check just to see if the NRA's talking points match up with reality. Here's what we found on some of key statements.

2. The Atlantic and Atlantic Wire Have been very quick off the mark lately

I did let my subscription lapse, because I found I didn't read their lengthy issues.

Reconsidering that decision.
