What Do Bloomberg’s New Anti-Gun Group and Iraqi Propagandists Have in Common?

by Greg Pollowitz

Well, for starters, no understanding of what a bullet looks like when it’s fired from a gun. 

Here’s a photo from 2007, with the caption: “An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City.”

Did someone throw the bullets at the nice old lady? Now note the similarity to the latest from Bloomberg’s group:

And what I wrote about the first picture back in 2007 is as true today as it was then:

I’m no ballistics expert or anything like that, but I do know that when a bullet has been fired, it looks just a little bit different than as pictured above.

If you’re going to put out propaganda, at least make it believable, huh?
