Because I’m the only one who ever got it done nationally. I beat the N.R.A. Twice. I got assault weapons banned. I got magazines that could not hold more than 10 rounds in them. I got them eliminated. Except we had a thing called an election with hanging chads in Florida and it was not reauthorized.
In addition to that, I passed the Brady Bill with waiting periods. I led that fight. But my friend to my right and others have, in fact, also given the gun manufacturers absolute immunity. Imagine if I stood here and said we would give immunity to drug companies. We would give immunity to tobacco companies.
That has caused carnage on our streets. 150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability. More than all the wars, including Vietnam, from that point on. Carnage on our streets.
And I want to tell you, if I’m elected: N.R.A., I’m coming for you, and gun manufacturers, I’m going to take you on, and I’m going to beat you. I’m the only one who has done it.

Bernie Sanders, Confronted on Immunity for Gun Manufacturers, Says That Was a ‘Bad Vote’
[Is, “I got magazines that could not hold more than 10 rounds in them. I got them eliminated” a big enough lie? Maybe not.
How about “…given the gun manufacturers absolute immunity”? Is that a big enough lie? Probably. But Biden can do better.
Biden takes a another swing at the biggest lie with, “150 million people have been killed since 2007”.
I started to say this was his first lie, but I realized there was at least two others prior… I’m wondering what the lie to truth ratio of the whole thing is now…
The hanging Chad recount controversy isn’t the reason the AWB sunsetted. GWB said he would sign the renewal multiple times, but Congress simply didn’t have the votes to bring it to him.
Congress didn’t have the votes ten years prior either, hence the sunset clause. Voters made sure many legislators who fell for the sunset clause weren’t in their seats for a renewal.
As for another lie, it wasn’t the hanging chads that didn’t get Biden’s gun ban reauthorized since Bush had pledged to sign a re-authorization. It was Republican congresscritters who grew enough of a spine to stop it.
Biden….he’s a legend in his own mind.
Yup. At this point it is not so much lying (which sort of implies a person is mentally together enough to be able to be aware of what the truth is, and knows they are trying to not state it correctly) as the random word-salad of an old man suffering dementia who is stringing together random bits and pieces of half-remembered memories strung out along a highly flexible time-line.
Hey Joe, if your worried about people getting killed. And dying. Why all the communist crap?
He’s pretty much right though. 150 million died from guns. And that’s just in communist China! ( Imagine his outrage when he finds out about Planned Parenthood and abortion?)
