Gun control lie-apalooza: Joe Biden recycles phony background check stat


@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. |

@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.

This is what desperation looks like.


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