Liberals lie. It’s in their nature.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) claims their campaign against a pro-gun billboard in Chicago resulted in that billboard coming down. In truth, however, The Washington Times reported the pro-gun advertisement came down because the company behind it had only leased the billboard for two months.
On February 2nd, Breitbart News reported that the billboard on I-55 in Chicago had images of a baseball mitt, an apple pie, and an AR-15. The caption under the images said, “Pure American.”
MDA demanded the billboard be taken down, but Lamar Advertising said no. Lamar’s Vice President of Governmental Relations Hal Kilshaw said, “We try not to run copy that’s offensive, but the standard can’t mean it can’t offend anyone. (Otherwise) we wouldn’t be able to run a McDonald’s ad because some people think McDonald’s products are unhealthy.”
So the pro-gun advertisement remained, but when it came down following the completion of its two month lease, MDA claimed victory.
