CBS News Claims Easier to Buy ‘Assault Rifle’ Than Cold Medicine

Actually, no, but narrative.

CBS News is peddling fake news about guns with the claim that it’s easier to buy an “assault rifle” than it is to buy cold medicine in the state of Florida.

Of course, that’s not true at all, but nothing is going to stop the anti-gun narrative the media is pushing in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland. 

In the short video, CBS lists several items that are “more difficult to purchase than a gun in Florida.” For one, medicines like Sudafed, which has been used by criminals in the manufacture of meth. Now, those are purchased at the pharmacy from behind the counter and you must be over 18. Also, you can’t buy too many boxes at one time because they might suspect you of breaking bad. But guns…

“In Florida, you can buy as many guns as you want at one time,” CBS News alerts. “You also don’t need a permit to purchase a rifle or shotgun.”

You also don’t have to get a background check to get sinus medication, but why muddy the waters, right CBS?
