Hillary’s Latest Lies About Guns

posted on November 17, 2015

Playing fast-and-loose with the facts isn’t new for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, but now she appears to be simply making stuff up. For example, take Saturday’s Democratic debate.

During the debate, Clinton stated: “Since we last debated in Las Vegas (Oct. 13), nearly 3,000 people have been killed by guns. Two hundred children have been killed. This is an emergency.”

While the so-called “mainstream” media typically give Clinton a pass, the Associated Press looked into this claim and reported Clinton’s “facts” were untrue: “The Gun Violence Archive has recorded 11,485 gun deaths in the U.S. so far this year, an average of just under 1,000 per month, making Clinton’s figure appear to be highly exaggerated. The archive had more detailed data for children and teenagers, showing 70 from those age groups killed by firearms since the Democratic candidates debated Oct. 13—not 200 as she claimed.”
