During the Pope's visit he spoke to Congress about the deadly weapons America is selling to those who everybody knows are planning on using them to inflict suffering and harm on others. He was referring to those we sell them to in other countries, which really does need to be examined, but that didn't stop his words from being taken out of context.
However, his words to Congress were immediately seized by media outlets like the Chicago Sun-Times and anti-Second Amendment groups as an impetus for gun control too. Breitbart News reported that Americans for Responsible Solutions—the gun control group founded by Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly—sent out a donation request after Pope Francis spoke. In the request, they asked for $3 from every gun control supporter and quoted the first part of Pope Francis’s question—”Here we have to ask ourselves: Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to inflict untold suffering on individuals and society?”
Giffords went even further than asking for money by sending a tweet that cast gun control in religious overtones. She tweeted: “Inspired by [Pope Francis], let all Americans engage in a politics that sees the passage of just legislation that may bring us closer to grace.”
This is a perfect example of how liberals lie and distort things, and how they let no good opportunity to push their agenda go to waste. The saddest thing about it is that the selling of weapons to foreign countries and groups who use them for evil really does need to be examined by citizens and leaders alike. This is how ISIS was formed, and there's no telling how many more monsters our government has created that we don't know about.
