Conventional wisdom among the legislators~The earth is flat

From a SAFE ACT forum Quoting the news here:
‎"The conventional wisdom among the legislators, our leaders is that this will lessen the ability of those who use those add ons to be more efficient as an active shooter," New York State Police said.


When that didn't work, State Police explained they weren't behind the legislation, merely trying to explain how it would be enforced, reminding gun owners that while the law was was passed quickly...regulations were still being fine tuned.

As per wiki definitions:

... So, Conventional wisdom may itself be the subject of legends. For example, it is widely believed that conventional wisdom prior to Christopher Columbus held that the world was flat, when in actuality scholars had long accepted that the earth is a sphere.

However, if enough people read and believe this fact, the above sentence will eventually become "conventional wisdom". Ironically however it would likewise become false, because it would no longer be true that this belief about the conventional wisdom of an earlier era was widespread.

Conventional wisdom is the body of ideas or explanations generally accepted as true by the public or by experts in a field. Such ideas or explanations, though widely held, are unexamined. Unqualified societal discourse preserves the status quo.

In short it's political bullshit!
