Looking For Guns In All The Wrong Places? Straight Outta The New York Times ...

Breathless and desperate? - behind the heels of another Bernie triumph, more recently, in Wisconsin - the Clinton campaign, if you can get a load of this one, accuses Vermont of being a gateway for criminal guns into New York.

I guess this story was already circulating among the disingenuous and gullible since the latest story is how Clinton's own superdelegate Vermont governor Shumlin admits it? - though he has yet to drop his endorsement in the face of such Big Lies?

Straight outta the New York Times, a map showing how illegal guns flow within the United States (most from the south).  (And, Governor Shumlin, this is not "news"; this map is from November 2015, and stories about NYC and gun smuggling date back earlier.)

No wonder New York still has a big problem with gun violence if Hillary Clinton as Senator was so "misinformed" on the roots of this problem ... and Governor Shumlin couldn't figure it out until ... recently?  They thought the guns were coming from .. his home state? ... Vermont?

Looking for guns in all the wrong places guys ..?!

As I note in my tweet, "straight outta the New York Times," Vermont doesn't figure at all in the map indicating how illegal guns flow within the United States.  

Heck, it's not even a very faint line ... like Washington State ( .. or a group thereof). 

The New York Times endorses Mrs. Clinton too. Does she even read their newspaper regularly? 

Editor's Note: It has been brought to my attention (re the NYT gun route map) that there is a very, very, very faint line visible in Maine and Vermont, but you have to stick your face into the computer screen by less than 1/8 inch, and even then, squint very hard to see it. Needless to say, the point remains, i.e. the statistics are so low, these states don't figure in the larger scheme as the gist of the problem.
