Claim : Cops Seized E Jean Carroll’s Gun After Trump Threat!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the police just seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun after assassination threats were made against Donald Trump!

Here is an excerpt of the article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Cops Seize E Jean Carroll’s Gun Following Trump Assassination Threats

New York police have confiscated an unlicensed firearm belonging to E. Jean Carroll following assassination threats made against Donald Trump.

In January, The National Pulse reported that Carroll admitted to holding a firearm at her home during her defamation trial against former President Trump. This revelation, according to a police report, led Warwick, New York police to visit Carroll’s residence on February 15 to address the weapon.

The gun confiscation comes amid multiple credible threats against Trump from high-profile far-left activists.

Truth : Cops Did Not Seize E Jean Carroll’s Gun After Trump Threat!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : E. Jean Carroll Handed Over The Gun!

Let me start by pointing out that the police did not seize the gun. Instead, E. Jean Carroll handed over her  gun to the police.

E. Jean Carroll had earlier told the federal court in New York (on January 17) that she kept a “high standard revolver, nine chambers” by her bed at home, but she did not have a licence.

In a police report obtained by NBC News,  the Warwick chief of police visited E. Jean Carroll’s house on 15 February “to discuss some open issues“. The next day, E. Jean Carroll and a member of her security team surrendered the gun to the Warwick police.

To be clear – the Warwick police department did not seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun. She surrendered it a day after the Warwick police chief addressed her disclosure about owning an unregistered gun.

Fact #2 : Police Is Keeping Her Gun Until She Has A Licence

The Warwick chief of police, John Rader, said in his report, that he “offered to secure the weapon at the police station’s property for safekeeping”.

The police report also said that the firearm was being held until E. Jean Carroll obtained a New York pistol licence for it.

To be clear – the Warwick police department did not seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun, because of any assassination threat against Donald Trump. It is only keeping her gun, until she obtains the necessary New York pistol licence.

Fact #3 : E. Jean Carroll Did Not Threaten Donald Trump

The People’s Voice article appears to suggest that the confiscation of E. Jean Carroll’s gun was related to assassination threats against Donald Trump. That is simply not the case.

Not only have there not been any recent assassination threats against Donald Trump, E. Jean Carroll herself did not threaten Donald Trump.

On the other hand, E. Jean Carroll was threatened by Donald Trump’s supporters after he posted about her on social media:

“The thing that really got me about this was, from the White House, he asked if anyone had any information about me, and if they did, to please come forward as soon as possible, because he wanted the world to know what’s really going on – and that people like me should pay dearly,” she told jurors.

Carroll was presented with some of those threats on the stand. “I hope you die soon. I hope someone really does attack, rape and murder you,” one message stated. Another missive read: “Rape Jean rape jean.”

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
