Comedy Central’s Amy Schumer Continues Lying About U.S. Gun Laws

posted on May 3, 2016

In a recent sketch on Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” the so-called comedienne—a cousin of gun-ban zealot U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer—made claims about gun shows that were so deceptive that even Politifact.com choked on them

"You can absolutely get a gun if you have several felonies as long as you buy it on the Internet or at a gun show,” Schumer claimed, which as Politifact pointed out, is “illegal, and far more complicated than her comment suggests.”

Which means Schumer’s “revelation” is about as revealing as the claim that, “You can absolutely commit murder!”—since both are illegal and since apparently laws don’t deter killers from committing murder any more than they prevent criminals from buying guns illegally. As Politifact concluded, Schumer “makes it sound like buying guns with a felony is easy and lawful. That is not the case.” In other words, just more lies from the gun-ban crowd.
