Video: President Pinocchio repeats Left’s favorite bogus gun control stat

Well, would you look at that. It’s the Left’s favorite gun control scare-tistic, this time being recycled by President Fear-monger.

Obama delivered a short speech about his gun control push Thursday. Naturally, he couldn’t manage his political theater performance without props:

Surrounded by the mothers of gun violence victims, Obama attempted to shame citizens and lawmakers into supporting gun control legislation.

The shaming included the discredited statistic that a “loophole” allows “as many as 40 percent of all gun purchases to take place without a background check.”

This isn’t the first time Obama has relied on that bogus figure. In January, he said that “as many as 40 percent of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check.” Even the Washington Post gave that one a couple of Pinocchios.

But, you know, he did say “as many as,” so technically that would cover the more accurate figure of about 11 percent. Right, you guys? Right?

A “Fact” About Gun Sales That Does Not Hold Up

73% of gun owners say they purchased their firearms. Of that, 63% (not 60%) were purchased through the mail, at a gun store, a pawn shop or other store (other would be Wal-Mart, Gander Mountain, Dick’s Sporting Goods, etc.).

They show that 4% purchased their guns at a gun show. The bulk of sales at gun shows are through FFL’s. But for the sake of the whiners, let’s split it down the middle. 2% at gun shows were through FFL’s and 2% through a private sale. 29% say they acquired their gun from a friend or family member. If we deduct the 24% who say they inherited their firearms or received it as a gift, that leaves us with 5% who purchased it from a family member or friend.

So that leaves 65% of guns purchased where a background check was required. 5% of sales were done between family members and friends without a check. Another 24% were given as gifts or inherited. That leaves the final 6% which were sold in other markets or acquired through a trade.  Even if we are generous and include sales between family members and friends, we are left with a figure of eleven percent. Not forty percent.

But if it can save just one child’s life …

        • silly_silly

          If there’s no background check, how is the seller supposed to know if they’re a criminal or not?

          • Zanshi

            Background checks are *already* required. Pay attention, please.

          • Catchance

            Apparently you aren’t aware of the actual facts. Please go back and read something other than HuffPo or Daily Kos, and get some real information. People who buy guns from gun dealers, gun shows, WalMart, sporting good stores, etc. have to go through a background check. Have.To. Have. A. Background. Check.

            The so-called “loophole” at gun shows is the private sales, which not all states allow, but for those that do, the sellers ALSO have to comply with the rules and regulations (which, btw are incredibly complicated). These may account for as much as 2% of all gun sales.

            29% of people who own guns say they either bought it from a family member or received it as a gift from a family member.

  • The_Questman

    Out of all the incidences where mass murder was committed was the person arrested or killed for the crime or the gun/s? Was the person considered responsible or were the gun/s? Was their state of mind or maybe their “POLITICAL” affiliation ever considered for their actions? The President wants to punish responsible people and their guns as the problem. He doesn’t want the underlying reasons considered.

    • Hiraghm

      I’m fed up with this “mass murder” nonsense. It is no great tragedy that 20 people are killed in an afternoon than is one person killed in a dark alley each night for 20 nights.

      Human life is NOT additive. To continually focus on “mass murder” and to continually talk about “magazine capacity” is to say that killing a single person is acceptable whereas killing many is not. If the arbitrarily chosen capacity is 7 rounds, then you’re saying it’s okay to kill 6 people in one sitting. If the arbitrarily chosen capacity is 10, then you’re saying it’s okay to kill 9 people at one incident.

      This is the same kind of twisted argument used for “healthcare reform”. Always conflating healthcare with health *insurance*. Likewise, they focus on the sensational massacres simply for the dramatic effect on advancing their agenda of control. Not over guns. Over you.

      • BigBobbyBoom

        I wonder what Hussein/Biden/Pelosi/Reid/Feinstein will do when some nutjob stands in a classroom at a gun-free school and murders 28 kids because he has four 7-round magazines. It’s stupid, fallacious logic all the way around.

        • Ardell Simon

          They will move to make 7-round magazines illegal. Their plan is to kill the 2nd amendment in stages and the low information voters, will go right along!

      • johnlecorchick

        Absolutely correct Jim. This is a case of the mountain, and the molehill. The places, in this country where gun crimes are most prevalent, are the same places where “gun legislation” has run amuck. We have more gun laws in DC, Chicago, Detroit, and the like, than anywhere in the country. Yet, well…. So I’m captain obvious. And all we here of is, “we must protect the children of Columbine, Sandy Hook”, and so on. But every life should be considered precious. And, the fact of the matter is, we lose thousands more kids to handguns than we do to rifles, and school shootings.. The media refuses to acknowledge this and uses tragedies, like the aforementioned, to promote their ideology of control. I live in MD. When I was 18 yrs old, I got into a fight at a dance. I was charged with a misdemeanor. Almost 30 yrs later, I tried to buy a handgun and was denied. Not only was I denied, but I was berated by the MDSP for attempting to buy a handgun and warned that I “should not try it again cuz I’ll lock you up”. I got a dog in this fight! I am denied my constitutional right for a fistfight that occurred 30 yrs ago??? For now, I will have to take Uncle Joe’s advice and be happy with my shotgun. The point is, it is all about PEOPLE CONTROL!!

          Please explain: what other conclusion do you expect one to draw when the gun lobby keeps throwing up “facts” about how background checks make no difference when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and psychopaths? Please see the first post in this thread if you need a refresher. I stopped, and I thought about Aurora, Newtown, Columbine, The Beltway Sniper, Tuscon, and alI hear is a broken record about avoiding any new “gun control” laws while simply allowing the existing laws and regulations to go on the way they have been because “we have enough laws already”. Well I guess that’s fine as long as you can admit to yourself that innocent lives will continue to involuntarily pay the price for your freedoms. And while we’re at it, let’s be honest, at least half of ‘Murica would love to have “RedGlocks” vending machines, as they’ve so lovingly dubbed it below. I guess I should copyright the gun vending machine business plan now and get plans underway for a few in New Hampshire or Arizona. I think their laws would be easiest to work with on this concept. You see? Small Business entrepreneurship!

          • Catchance

            Quoting you: ‘…and alI I hear is a broken record about avoiding any new “gun control” laws while simply allowing the existing laws and regulations to go on the way they have been because “we have enough laws already”.’ Kay, that’s exactly the problem… you DON’T hear anything that doesn’t agree with your tunnel vision. We DO have plenty of existing gun laws… and law-abiding citizens follow them. It’s the NON-law-abiding citizens who don’t, and NO number of laws piled on top are going to prevent the NON-law-abiding citizens (or non-citizens, because there are plenty of those) from getting a gun illegally (through theft, mostly) and killing someone with it. Look at the three cities with the highest number of gun deaths: Chicago, D.C., and L.A. They also have the most restrictive gun laws.

            Really kay, “Murica?” Why the slur on southern people? Doesn’t that make you a bigot? Not if you’re a lefty huh? Seeing your posts on this headline explains a lot to me. It’s ok for the hate filled left, but not the right. You put quotes on the word – facts, sarcastically. It’s hard, I know, for you militant lefties to research the facts, because they get in the way of your agenda. Those are facts. On another headline, I decided to see how the left would take it if I responded back in the same militant, hateful manner; ooooo, they really didn’t like it very well. Then came the personal attack on me from a guy in in England! ; knowing nothing about me, calls me hick, inbred, and white trailor trash (born and raised in the City of Chicago) because the current comments were on guns. I reply back in the same way, and here comes fair and impartial moderator, KayGee, aaaaand she blocks my post. Now I know why. I think Michelle Malkin should personally vet whoever moderates here. What’s good for the goose…………..not, huh Kay?

          • Sonus

            And if that, “half of America who would love to have RedGlocks”, were just a fraction as dangerous as you seem to believe, everybody in America would be dead within a week.
            As the gun owners would wipe out the non gun owners, then turn their guns on each other.

            Do the math.

            Your strawman just met it’s match.

          • Walter Warren

            Kay –
            1 ) Nobody wants to allow the current laws to ” go on the way they have ” – how about enforcing the existing laws, and enforcing them consistently ? Better yet, rather than going easy on violent criminals and letting them work the system, how about we let justice fit the crime ? But then I guess that would contradict the notion that everybody is a victim of something, and we should try to ” rehabilitate ” people who perpetrate acts of evil upon other people – why , so that we can integrate a rapist back into society ? In many cases, this leads to the rapist becoming a killer next time around – why ? Lesson learned – less witnesses.
            2 ) Take a look at the common threads in all of the mass shootings and all of the shootings in the big cities. You’ll find two things. Mental instability, and criminal activity. The perpetrators of these crimes do not represent 99.9 percent of our society. The majority of gun owners in America are regular people who want to be able to exercise their right to defend themselves, their family, their neighborhood, their country – should the need arise. Kind of like insurance – God I hope I don’t need to ever pull the trigger, but if some thug kicks in my door at 2 am looking for something to take or someone to harm, I want to be able to send him back out the way he came rather than plead for my life or the lives of my loved ones. Or worse yet – suppose the economy and society crashes, and one day an angry hungry mob comes marching down my street, going door to door, taking what they want from people who have some food stored up. My neighbors and I are the law at that point – 911 isn’t coming. Again – insurance – pray it never happens, ready if it does. Here’s the problem – in the eyes of some, I’m the threat – I’m the mentally unbalanced one – I’m irrational – I’m a danger to myself and those around me – and the way to mitigate that danger is to pass more laws to restrict my ability ( and at least 100 million like me ) to defend as I see fit.

            Consider this – I feel safer and more secure being armed. You apparently wouldn’t. If we were neighbors, and I were armed, you would still be safer in the event something terrible happened. But if you disarm me – how would either of us be safer if all of the ” crazy talk ” turns out to be true ?

            3 ) I believe the ” Red Glocks ” idea was intended as a joke – but if you would seriously like to look into it as an investment opportunity, then you should probably get in touch with Eric Holder at the DOJ, as I believe he already holds the franchise rights.

      • Guest

        That was the same BS gun grabbers in every state was saying when Conceal Carry was made legal. Except for something like 5 states the rest have one form or another where you can carry a firearm on you daily and guess what? Crime has GONE DOWN…. how do you explain that?

        If you look in every state and city where gun laws are relaxed and majority of citizens carry a firearm on them daily opposed to other places where gun laws are extremely strict or even banned and you can’t carry you see a night and day difference of not only crime but gun/violent crime.

        Its pathetic and unfortunately sad that people can’t simply look at true unbiased facts when we live in an age where there is more information then ever available for free at your fingertips.

    I believe this statistic utterly and completely. No joke. I do.

    40% of gun sales occur without a background check.

    Sold illegally…in back alleys…pay by the hour motel rooms…ghettos…certain neighborhoods…sold on the “street” to convicted violent felons, gang bangers & every other manner of sub-human scum.

    In places like NYC, Chicago, LA, Oakland, and on, and on, and on, and on. Hell, 15% of that 40% was our government selling guns illegally to Mexican drug cartels. Wanna know how that “background check” worked out? Ask Brian Terry’s and around 500 Mexican national’s families’ how it worked out.

        This is the exact point, the original intent of the Bill of Rights is to restrict the federal government not the state governments.

        Pop quiz: In what year did the state of Connecticut abolish the endorsement of a “State Religion”, and what was that religion?

        A: 1818, Congregationalist. Note that this was some number of years after the adoption of the Bill of Rights in 1791.

        So, as you can see — the founders did not intend the Bill of Rights to restrict the states, just the federal government.

But in effect, he had to kill before he could be put away — and (forcibly) treated. Everyone knew that Adam Lanza was dangerous… but even his mother couldn’t get him committed. So, thanks for that, ACLU.

          Reagan didn’t dismantle anything with regard to the mental health system. He returned control of the system to the states and used federal block grants to help fund it. The Congress repealed Jimmy Carter’s brain dead Mental Health Act.

      By your logic, teen pregnancy is the fault of groups that hand out birth control to teenagers. The NRA condones safe, responsible gun ownership, just like these groups condone safe responsible sex.

      Perhaps you blame the Constitution for gun ownership? And if you think it should be changed, I assume you realize that if any part of it is mutable, so is any other part. Is that what you think?

      Furthermore, go ahead and blame the DMV for drunk, unlicensed, reckless drivers. It makes just as much sense as blaming the NRA for crazy homocidal killers.

    There is so much of these lies that just piss me off but here’s one that just infuriates me and i will eat my words if anyone can prove me wrong on this….

    They say 40% of guns are purchased without background checks…. IF there was no background check or record keeping, HOW would they know its 40%?????

    Also, if 40% of guns aren’t going through a background check, that means instead of the estimated 300 million guns in America there would be 420 MILLION firearms in America and instead of 100 Million gun owners there would be 140 Million gun owners in America.

    The pres needs to get it straight about guns, just like everything else. The economy is in the tank, raise more taxes. We need solar energy and his handouts have been failures, and it’s our taxes he’s using. He sells tanks and planes to a know terrorist regime, and the lame stream media keeps quiet. There’s an old song, but one lyric stands out from the ’60s that can be applied today “WHEN WILL THEY EVER LEARN, WHEN WILL THEY EVER LEARN?”

      All the left has in their arsenal is God, guns, and gays. That’s ALL we’re going to hear about for the next four years — they can’t make a single argument based on the economy, science, or the Constitution.

    The POTUS is too conservative. its not 40% but 99%. Remember the botched fast and furious where guns with the authority of this govt went to mexico resulting to a dead border patrol agent, hundreds or thousands of civilians across the border and no one was held accountable. Amnesia POTUS?

    WOMEN, ARE YOU BOTHERED THE NAME ‘PINOCCHIO’ is so often linked with ‘Obama?’ Or do you prefer remaining ‘clueless?’ Does the ‘Obama Math’ escape you? Ladies, don’t you realize Obama is the slick operator that crawls up on top of you out of nowhere and whispers, ‘It’s o.k. baby, everybody’s doin’ it, I’ll always be here for you darlin’.” And women fall for it everytime and more often than not in Obamerica where 10 deadbeat dad’s are produced for every job G.E., ie, sends overseas with Obama’s total approval, have destroyed the family unit. He’s the liar that told you four years ago: “It’s o.k., baby, I’m here for you darlin’, I’m gonna take care of you. It’s cool. And I’m too cool for school, sugar.” He also said this sometime before Sandra Fluke and after he crooned ‘Let’s Stay Together’: “If you love me, you’ll support my “stim-you-less.” Thougin the case of Obama, ladies, you’re ‘barking up the wrong tree’ (wink) figuratively, Obama is the masher you fought off in the back seat when your brain was still funcitoning, and yet in the past four years plus, you’ve given in to him everytime. And he’s a married man. To himself. Now he’s back whispering ‘Don’t get squishy, baby, on gun control. I need your help darlin’, to take away your last form of protection from criminals and politicians, ’cause you know, we’re often indistinguishable when you’re shooting at us in the dark.” And if you let Obama and ‘throw up on their shoes’ Plugs Biden’ knock you up again, the baby you’ll be stuck with will be an ugly one. Growing up in a dead-end, hopeless society, all regimented according to the little job given to them to glorify and grow the ‘State’ while stunding their own growth, intellectually, emotionally and for future generations. We’ve seen it all before. But, in any case, you won’t have to raise any baby Obama gives you. There is already a ‘State Nanny’ off in the wings assigned to Obama Baby #341-67-SY-12 (assuming your baby doesn’t fall prey to have a hole drilled in his cranium, in utero). They’ll be knocking on the door of your state issued apartment before you even have time to bond as mother and child to begin taking charge of the child’s ‘education’ as early as 3 years. So don’t worry about a thing darlin’, ‘Obama will be there for you.’ By the way, your baby will be hard to recognize after a while, he or she will grow up looking just like his father with that ancestoral ‘pinocchio’ nose that will insure an even playing field. Same nubby ears, same long and always growing schnozzola.

    You can tighten gun laws, you can confiscate guns…but bad guys will still get them because they don’t follow the law.

    Here’s a novel idea: Let’s enforce the laws ALREADY on the books. Let’s stiffen gun crime penalties. So much is done by repeat offenders. If they’re off the street, they’re not shooting people.

    But I’m still waiting for the magical law to protect the innocent against those who have murder in their hearts. Murderers will kill people by whatever means necessary.

  • Bill Board

    How about SHAME on Obama for disrespecting the families of the victims of Fast & Furious and Benghazi by ignoring, stone-walling and lying to them and to the American people. Come clean Obama or STFU.

  • jb

    And 100% of your gun giveaway to Mexicans had 0 background checks, Mr. President. Ask “FnF” Holder. (And I bet 100% of your arms giveaways to AL Qaeda in Libya and The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt didn’t require any either.)

  • almarquardt

    Even if the statistic were correct, so what? Before there were any background checks, incidents of murders with firearms were not epidemic any more than they are now. They are only using it as a “scare tactic” because they all seem to believe that the bulk of the human race has no self control, no conscience. Even worse, the bulk of politicians, low-info voters and the media are willing to believe it.

    As if the gun is the ultimate in temptation, like a highly addictive drug that strips away all inhibitions and goodness the moment it’s touched.

    It’s the same old, tiresome outlook that the little people can’t be trusted to do the right thing.

  • W Randall

    The following Pro Gun Control statistics are posted for the sheep on barackobama.com.

    Do they pass the BS Test?

    I know the first one is based on cherry picked numbers, but even at that it just proves to me our military superiority. Would they feel better if more service men died and less gang bangers in Chicago?

    Twitchy disproved the 4th one, any comments on 2 and 3?

    1) “Since” 1968, more Americans have died from gun violence that in all of America’s Wars combined.

    2) 92% of Americans support universal background checks for ALL gun sales.

    3) Background checks have kept more than 2 Millions guns out of dangerous hands.

    4) More that 40% of gun sales are made by unlicensed gun dealers.who aren’t required to conduct a background check under current law.

    • jojofido

      not sure where they come up with number one , total murder since 1968 810,000, if they are taking suicide into account then the “it isn’t a mental health issue” needs to be stopped, and if they are also including accidents then automobiles, powertools ,ladders all need to be banned.
