Wrong Again: Obama Claims 40% Of Gun Sales Done Without Background Check

What? Liberals use wrong numbers again. This can’t be right, they wouldn’t lie about things.
Check it out:

During his March 28 comments on “gun violence,” President Obama once again claimed that 40% of gun purchases take place without a background check.

The claim is meant to apply to new gun sales and is patently false, as Breitbart News demonstrated when Obama first used the 40% figure during a speech on Jan. 16.

As Breitbart News explained then, many gun grabbers get the “40%” figure from a 2011 study by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, titled: “Point, Click, Fire: An Investigation Into Illegal Online Gun Sales.”
