@nconstantine That 40% of gun sales don’t go through NICS.

As the Senate prepares to consider gun control measures, Vice President Joe Biden joined the “Morning Joe” panel for honest and well-reasoned debate.

Nah, just kidding. Uncle Joe trotted out the false and repeatedly debunked statistic that 40 percent of gun purchases occur without a background check. It’s the Left’s favorite gun control lie: “We know roughly 40 percent of the guns sold in America have no background check.”

Please someone on this panel call Joe Biden out on the BS 40% figure. #morningjoe

Biden went on to decry the NRA’s “disinformation.” No one on the panel challenged Biden’s disinformation, natch.

@morning_joe @vp @jaycaruso @noltenc so @joenbc sits there like a mouth-breathing fanboy when Biden repeats 40% lie. Shocker.

It’s closer to 11 percent.

#nra Joe Biden is on morning Joe lying about a 40% That don’t get background check when buying a gun!

Biden’s “40% claim”= “40% of gun purchases lack background checks.” WaPo gives this claim 3 pinnochios. | po.st/yZRKdg

@morning_joe @vp This meeting is a JOKE. The 40% number is wrong and you know it. LIes do not become the office

@joenbc let’s Joe Biden repeat the 40% lie about gun purchases unchallenged. Nice job. Three Pinocchios for you. ow.ly/jXDvs

This is what desperation looks like.

Update:

More of Biden’s wisdom on the NRA and background checks, if you can stomach it.
