Adam Lambert sent out two tweets today, one of which he deleted after realizing that the "news story" he had linked in his first tweet had been a sophisticated internet hoax.

His second tweet:

"....wishful thinking ;( #guncontrolnow "

Adam sent the above tweet out in response to a tweet that he had sent out earlier in reference to fake "news" story that was later proven to be a hoax.

The words from Adam's now DELETED Tweet:

"Bravo! President Obama Signs Executive Order Banning The Sale Of Assault Weapons via @ABC News",  with the fake story linked in the tweet.

The bogus news "ABC" site published a story with the headline: "President Obama Signs Executive Order Banning The Sale Of Assault Weapons". Unfortunately that was proven to be UNTRUE as per this story from The New Civil Rights Movement and other legitimate sources.. apparently this site is guilty of similar fake news stories from time to time.

From the "New Civil Rights Movement" debunking the false story:

LINK: No, President Obama Did Not Just Sign an Executive Order Banning the Sale of Assault Weapons

An excerpt: read the rest of the story at the link above
A website posing as ABC News has again trolled the internet by claiming, "President Obama Signs Executive Order Banning The Sale Of Assault Weapons." The fake "news" site manipulates readers with a logo that looks very similar to the real ABC News logo, except it's slightly oval instead of round. It further attempts to appear as a real news site by appearing to claim its stories are from the Associated Press, with the iconic AP initials at the start of its stories. Even its web address looks like it is ABC News: The real ABC News however is The fake news story is designed to create heightened emotions – either of satisfaction or anger – and the story will go viral because it feeds on people's emotions about very important issues, like gun control after the nation's worst mass shooting, and deadliest terror attack since 9/11.
