@nconstantine That 40% of gun sales don't go through NICS.

As the Senate prepares to consider gun control measures, Vice President Joe Biden joined the “Morning Joe” panel for honest and well-reasoned debate.
Nah, just kidding. Uncle Joe trotted out the false and repeatedly debunked statistic that 40 percent of gun purchases occur without a background check. It’s the Left’s favorite gun control lie: “We know roughly 40 percent of the guns sold in America have no background check.”
Please someone on this panel call Joe Biden out on the BS 40% figure. #morningjoe

Biden went on to decry the NRA’s “disinformation.” No one on the panel challenged Biden’s disinformation, natch.

Biden's "40% claim"= "40% of gun purchases lack background checks." WaPo gives this claim 3 pinnochios. | http://t.co/v5Jb9hQmo1

This is what desperation looks like.
More of Biden’s wisdom on the NRA and background checks, if you can stomach it.
