Democrat Joe Biden blatantly lies as he falsely claims that *150 MILLION* Americans have been killed in shootings since 2007.

Did Biden experience a civil war the rest of us know nothing about?
Did Thanos actually wipe out half the population? Pretty sure that was just a movie but, my goodness, I suppose we have to think twice.
Because that seems like a lot.
During the debate on Tuesday night, Biden literally stated –
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability,” Biden lied. “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, NRA I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers I’m going to take you on and I’m going to beat you,” Biden claimed.
Biden’s claims were entirely devoid of facts, as the real number would be closer to 150 thousand gun-related homicides if we were to multiply the average of 11,000 gun-related homicides per year by the 13 years it’s been since 2007.
Perhaps this was simply a moment where he misspoke, but this certainly isn’t the first time that Biden has made extreme remarks about gun-related issues… amongst a plethora of other issues. but I’ll spare you the lengthy list of quotations.
According to The Daily Wire:
Late last week, Biden made extreme remarks during a CNN town hall event where he called for banning semi-automatic firearms and “clips that have multiple bullets in them,” which would effectively ban nearly all firearms.
“I’m going to do everything in my power in office or out of office to get those assault weapons off the street, which I have done once already,” Biden claimed. “And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.”
Biden made similar remarks last September, saying, “The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it’s absolutely mindless.”
“It’s no violation of the Second Amendment,” Biden falsely claimed.
Even the National Rifle Association confirmed that Biden’s claims were entirely false.
