NRA "Gun Ban" Story Retracted By The Associated Press

Whoops.  The Associated Press has deleted a tweet that incorrectly said the NRA had banned guns during Trump and Pence speeches at its annual meeting. The ban was put in place by the Secret Service.

The story had been used by gun control advocates to mock the National Rifle Association for hypocrisy.  Posts like this from BBC News were full of quotes from survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting:

Cameron Kasky, one of the student founders of the March for Our Lives movement in the wake of the Parkland shooting, shared the NRA's post on Twitter, calling the group a "hilarious parody".

Matt Deitsch, another student leader for the movement chimed, saying "it sounds like the NRA wants to protect people who help them sell guns, not kids".

Ever wonder why conservatives rally to the label, "fake news"?  It's because the media tends to always support the liberal narrative.

This isn't a minor mistake.  A whole host of stories -  on television and in newspapers -  were based on the fact that the NRA was the entity banning guns.  The Associated Press has now issued THIS corrected story, which indicates that members CAN carry guns to most of the events at the annual meeting.

We already know that an incorrect tweet will be retweeted much more than a corrected tweet.  I am guessing that the Parkland survivors will move on.  But law-abiding gun owners will be left with the angry feelings caused by an angry meeting willingly establishing liberal narratives under false pretenses.
