sales to criminals represent 25% of the Gun Industry’s annual sales. (Source: Expert witness report filed as part of the 1999 NAACP lawsuit vs. the Gun Industry.)Yeah, OK.
Unsurprisingly 'Gunsensus' made the same claim a few hours later on Twitter. So I called her on it. Here was the response:
Can't share--not mine to share. Part of lawsuit.How convenient. The 'lawsuit' was dismissed nearly 10 years ago. Reminds me of the 'super secret' AHSA Amici Brief in McDonald. We all know though that they will continue to repeat this 'fact' no matter how ridiculous it is and w/o providing any supporting evidence for it whatsoever.
Yep, that's pretty much it. Sometimes you can't share legal documents publicly. Sorry.
At the same time, Ladd Everitt of the CSGV claims that there's no way to know the number of sales because the NRA/NSSF are 'hiding' the data. Another 'fact'.
This is all they have left.
