Obama Keeps Touting Bogus Gun Control Number

guncontrol

For months we’ve heard President Obama and his fellow gun control zealots using the line, “40 percent of guns are purchased without a background check.” We’ve heard anti-gunners make this claim under oath in congressional testimony and on primetime television. The problem? The 40 percent figure is an old and bogus statistic that was debunked a long time ago.

In January, the Washington Post fact checker gave Obama two pinocchios for using the figure.

Rather than being 30 to 40 percent (the original estimate of the range) or “up to 40 percent” (Obama’s words), gun purchases without background checks amounted to 14 to 22 percent. And since the survey sample is so small, that means the results have a survey caveat: plus or minus six percentage points.

    I just heard Barry telling people in Denver, Co( which by the way, has already passed strict firearm laws, he must have needed a pat on the back) about a mother who was tired of hearing how her son was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Barry never said the shooter was caught, in prison or still on the loose. Other wise, law-abiding citizens are the bad guys and the criminals are never caught.
    Barry also talked about, briefly, 2nd amendment. Saying he’s not coming for our guns, United State has a Constitution to prevent it. That may be true but, if he wasn’t trying to take the firearms why all the EOs attacking firearms rights.
    Liar liar pants on fire.
    About background checks, there were 1.7million background check violations, of those only 44 were prosecuted. What’s wrong with this picture. How is broader background checks going to change anything. The next president will build out that law and further restricting firearms. The way congress is acting it could be Barry.
    Enough is enough, Barry bite me.

      Black Rain Obama didn’t tell you whether the kid is dead, alive or even if he is a CEO of a major company because it didn’t happen. He is such a liar that you can’t believe anything he says. As far as serving a third term well that is never going to happen. He will be lucky to finish this one.

      Black Rain I’m with you 100% but take heart he’s facing a real uphill battle. Take a few minutes and read the following by Constitutional Scholar Publius Huldah……it is very interesting and a true eye opener:
      http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/03/all-federal-gun-laws-are-unconstitutional/

      Also, in regards to the UN Gun Ban Treaty, if signed by obummer, it must be ratified by 2/3 of the Senate….highly unlikely, but if it were……remember our Constitution which provides the following;

      The federal government may not lawfully circumvent the U.S. Constitution by international treaties. It may NOT do by Treaty what it is not permitted to do by the U.S. Constitution.
      The 2nd Amendment will survive this criminal act of the liberals in this country.

    I can’t believe you actually believe he is telling the truth!!! The turd tells so many lies that even if the truth were to help him, he would STILL lie!!! What a statement to say about the leader of the free world!!!! But he is what he is…. the black pinocchio!!!

    • George

      I think the statement you were looking for is “He would tell a lie even if the truth sounded better”.

  • James Maxwell

    Tell your lie long enough and often enough then there will always be a willing fool to beleive your lies
    and take them as truth, in this case it is the whiney, limp writed, malcontent, liberal takers who are
    afraid they will not be able to get thier “free” stuff if people have guns and will not give it up willingly.

  • Fungi2bewith

    86% of all statistics are made up on the spot!

  • Dempsey Coleman

    If he has EVER said anything honest it is most likely hidden along with his Records he has spent over 2 Million to keep hiden from Congress and US the whole American Population

  • lokiswife

    He pulls a number out of the air and proclaims it the truth..and does it with such a straight face that the low information voters are impressed with his intelligence….the rest of us know that within hours his number will be debunked.
