Baltimore Mayor Fund-Raises Off Lie That NRA Supports Ownership Of Rocket Launchers

On Thursday, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Phew Pugh — a Democrat — falsely claimed on Twitter that the National Rifle Association (NRA) actually supports the private ownership of rocket launchers.  Moreover, she used the false claim in an email raising funds for her campaign.

“As of today, we removed over 1800 guns and 1 rocket launcher from the streets of . And yet the  thinks somehow rocket launchers are good for Baltimore. Perhaps a name change is in order: The National Rocket Association,” she said on Twitter.

According to the  Blaze:

The Baltimore Police Department’s latest gun buyback program — which is intended to reduce the number of unregistered weapons on the city’s streets — turned up a rocket launcher.

An actual rocket launcher.

Guidelines for the buyback included $25 for high-capacity magazines, $100 for revolvers and bolt-action or pump-action weapons, and $200 for semi-automatic weapons, according to the Baltimore Sun. The city also offered $500 for fully automatic weapons.

The rocket launcher reportedly fetched $500, though it wasn’t fully automatic.

Mayor Phew Pugh sent out a fundraising letter using the patently false claim as posted by Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton:

Reaction on social media was pretty much what you’d expect:



Well, no one ever accused Mayor Phew Pugh of being very smart…

The Blaze said it “…found zero evidence that the NRA endorses, encourages, or otherwise advocates private ownership or use of rocket launchers by civilians.”

There is a reason for that—–because they don’t.

Mayor Phew Pugh will do anything she can, to slander the NRA and its 5,000,000 law-abiding gun owners. If Phew can’t be trusted to be honest about law-abiding Americans, then how can she be believed about anything? Baltimore voters should realize that their mayor is a LIAR.
