Anti-gun activists love to disguise their true intentions.
Hiding behind focus group-honed phrases like “common sense gun reform,” what they want is to outlaw Americans owning guns.
And one CNN host was just caught lying on national TV when confronted by that fact.
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens recently penned an op-ed titled, “Repeal the Second Amendment.”
In response, President Trump tweeted “THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED!”
THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED! As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY. We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!

But while many publicly deny it’s their intention, a recent poll showed nearly 40 percent of Democrats want to repeal the Second Amendment.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo was interviewing Rick Santorum when he questioned “Who is calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment?”
The Daily Caller reports:
“You’ve got the President of the United States tweeting that the Second Amendment will never be repealed,” Cuomo said. “Who is calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment? Who is calling for it?”
“Justice Stevens did,” Santorum shot back.
“He did not, it was in the context of a conversation about the fastest route to legal change — of course, if you didn’t have the Second Amendment… it would be easier to change the laws,” Cuomo said, doubling down. “That does not breed unity, it’s a bogeyman and you know it.”
Though Chris Cuomo was caught red-handed lying and trying to obfuscate the point by arguing that Justice Stevens is retired.
When Cuomo doubled-down on Twitter, many were quick to call him out.
He’s a former Supreme on the pages of the NYT. This is not a bogeyman. It’s not a fantasy. One of the more admirable things about this round of gun-control debate is people’s willingness to be honest on this front. Let’s not close our eyes to it.

Is this just another case of CNN spreading fake news?
Is Chris Cuomo trying to cover-up Democrats’ true intentions by lying about them on CNN?
Or did Cuomo just miss the memo that radical Democrats have officially ripped the mask off to reveal their true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment?
