FALSEHOOD #33: Biden falsely claimed thay 150 million Americans have been murdered by guns since 2007.
EXPLANATION: This is false. According to data from the CDC, between 2007-2018 there were 148,182 firearm-related homicides.
“In addition to that, I passed the Brady bill with waiting periods. I led that fight. But my friend on my right, and others have in fact also gave in to the gun manufacturers’ absolute immunity. Imagine if I stood here and said we give immunity to drug companies. We 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 gun manufacturers from liability. More than all the wars, including Vietnam, from that point on.”
