Of course, the second biggest lie of the summer (see below for the biggest lie) is that more guns will keep you safer. This is simply not true and defies logic. More guns are sold than there are legal gun owners. Why is this, because some of those gun owners are selling them to criminals. The manufacturers that make guns or import guns to the US survive on selling guns to illegal gun owners. Their market would drop in half and they would all declare bankruptcy if they could only sell guns to law-abiding citizens.
The great lie of the summer has been the Black Lives Matter movement. It was founded on one falsehood—that a Ferguson, Mo., police officer shot a black suspect who was trying to surrender—and it is perpetuated by another: that trigger-happy cops are filling our morgues with young black men.
