This has to be the the most moronic “guns are easier to buy than X” comparison that we’ve seen, but it’s not that surprising given the source, California’s anti-gun Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom:
In a break from the GOP Convention –> FACT: It's easier to get a gun than a Happy Meal in California. https://t.co/867ACPr4MZ

Note that PolitiFact didn’t find what Newsom tweeted to be true, but did find that there were more gun dealers in California than McDonald’s, which isn’t the same thing at all. PolitiFact found President Obama’s statement that “…it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book” to be mostly false.
So here’s the NRA with a real fact check for Lt. Gov. Newsom:

Here’s hoping PolitiFact steps in and goes after Newsom for spinning their ruling, but we doubt it will happen.
