President Obama covered a lot of ground today during his announcement of new executive actions which he believes will reduce gun violence in America, even if some of those steps already exist as law. One of the president’s claims today that drew the attention of PolitiFact was his statement that “a violent felon can buy [a gun] over the Internet with no background check, no questions asked” — a claim PolitiFact rated as “Mostly True” while ignoring the flames shooting from the back of the all-wise Truth-O-Meter.

So you’re saying they could, but it would be criminal to do so. Maybe if more violent felons knew it was a crime, they’d stop it and buy their guns legally.
