As Twitchy reported, President Biden, flanked by Attorney General Merrick Garland, gave a speech on gun control (guess the For the People Act is old news) and pulled an Eric Swalwell, saying you’d need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons to take on the U.S. government. Biden also shared a secret: it’s the gun lobby that wants you to believe that cities with the toughest gun control laws have the highest rates of gun violence.

Here’s what makes it true, according to Biden:
He’s blaming neighboring towns for Baltimore’s violence, saying that the guns are bought outside of the city and brought in. I’d like to see evidence of these claims. Regardless, you still have criminals ignoring the laws and getting guns illegally. What law will prevent this?

But the shootings are happening in Baltimore, regardless.
Why isn't the gun violence as bad in those neighboring states where allegedly all these guns are purchased?

It’s the truth. The places with less restrictive gun laws Biden is placing blame on here have lower rates of violent crime.

Except it's true and you just don't want to admit it

He said it. It must be so. 🙄

This is an outright lie.

This guy's so old he thinks the old way, where you just blatantly lie to the public, still works. Like we can't just pull up information on our phone to disprove it in like 10 seconds.

Got it. Don't believe statistical facts. Chicago is now the safest city in America.

That should be a pretty easy fact-checking bit right @ddale8 ?

I’m surprised this 🤡 didn’t say climate change was the reason for the rise in gun violence. Hey Joe nobody believes you!!!

Even if a criminal buys a gun out of state and brings it back to Chicago, wouldn’t Chicago’s tough gun laws stop him from committing a gun crime?
