Fake Ronald Reagan firearms meme
« on: September 21, 2019, 01:10:29 PM »


Pretty cool, huh?

Reagan was a 2nd Amendment supporter, and has been quoted saying he would "never disarm any American who seeks to protect his or her family from fear and harm".

However, the quote in this meme comes from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in 1850.  The only change was to substitute the word "people" for "workers".

Obviously this was constructed to go viral among 2A supporters in order to cause embarrassment when the truth was discovered.  Moral: Beware what you share.
