On Saturday morning’s The Cross Connection, MSNBC once more confirmed itself to be the place for faux information pushing liberal causes as host Tiffany Cross repeated a disputed statistic claiming that 70 to 90 % of weapons utilized in Mexico are from america, thus giving Mexico a rationale to sue gun producers within the U.S.

Establishing a section on the subject, Cross recalled:

 

 

An estimated 200,000 firearms are illegally trafficked from the U.S. to Mexico yearly and between 70 % and 90 % of the firearms discovered at crime scenes in Mexico are traced proper again right here. So, in an unprecedented transfer, the Mexican authorities is suing American gun producers to the tune of $10 billion for the harm brought on by the stream of weapons trafficked throughout the border.

She then made a crack suggesting {that a} lack of border safety hurts Mexico greater than it does the U.S. as she added:

“Why do not Individuals do this after each one among our numerous mass shootings?” you ask. As a result of normally they cannot. The Safety of Lawful Commerce and Arms Act is a federal legislation that grants fraud immunity to gun producers, and the jury is out on whether or not Mexico will have the ability to bypass it as nicely.

After bringing aboard her visitor, anti-gun activist Ioan Grillo, she posed:

You realize, I used to be taking a look at these statistics after I was doing analysis for this section, and it is baffling, you realize. We have spent so a few years of these backwards folks yelling, “Construct a wall!” and I assumed, “Why hasn’t Mexico been on the border saying, ‘Construct a wall,’ since all of our arms appear to search out their method to the Southern border?”

However the declare that an amazing majority of crime weapons come from the U.S. has been disputed by a variety of sources, and, even PolitiFact’s evaluation that disputes Fox’s take admits that some weapons traced again to the U.S. have been initially manufactured in different nations earlier than going by means of the U.S. to Mexico.

This is Politifact flattening Barack Obama on the topic:  

However we predict Obama additionally mischaracterizes the statistic some when he says 90 % of the weapons recovered in Mexico come from america. Not each gun recovered in Mexico is submitted to the ATF for tracing. And so Obama and others cannot know precisely what share come from america. They’ll solely converse to the weapons efficiently traced by the ATF. And so we rule Obama’s assertion Half True.

The MSNBC host then turned to a Washington Submit article that she complained was not detrimental sufficient in opposition to former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch as Cross adopted up:

There are loads of Individuals which have this bizarre love affair with weapons. The Washington Submit did this extremely disgusting tone-deaf piece on the NRA and Dana and they described her “penetrating darkish eyes” and jaw line. You’ve got really interviewed or spoken with a number of the U.S. gun producers. I am curious, what’s their response to the harm they’re inflicting in Mexico?

After her visitor lamented {that a} gun producer he spoke to argued that he didn’t really feel responsible about promoting a authorized product, Cross additional smeared gun makers: “It is baffling however not stunning, I suppose, that the gun producer was not involved ethically, and positively they don’t seem to be involved morally.”
