Joe Biden’s latest slip of the tongue occurred during the South Carolina Democratic Debate on Tuesday. The former Vice President was discussing gun violence in America when he massively overstated casualties of the phenomenon, stating that “150 million” people have died as a result of gun violence since 2007.
BREAKING: Joe Biden claims 150 MILLION people have died from gun violence in the US since 2007

Such a claim maintains that more Americans have been killed by gun violence since 2007 than people were killed in both World War I and World War II combined.
Even the most committed of gun control supporters would be hard-pressed to deny that such a claim is the most extreme of exaggerations. It’s possible Biden was intending to say that 150,000 people have been killed through the use of guns since that year, a figure that includes suicides as a majority of casualties.
In any case, even if Biden didn’t mean to include the inflated numerical category, the slip of the tongue demonstrates his propensity towards exaggeration on the topic of gun violence in America. He was one of several Democrats attacking Bernie Sanders from the left on the topic of guns, claiming the Vermont Senator(who actually supports every far-left gun control proposition commonly proposed, including making gun manufacturers liable for the actions of criminals) was too conservative on the issue.
Biden was making the claim as part of an argument to hold gun manufacturers accountable for casualties criminals inflict with their products. Such a proposal would almost certainly result in the destruction of tens of thousands of American jobs and potentially serve as a backdoor restriction on the commercial sale of new firearms throughout the country.
This seems to be his latest slip of the tongue. Biden falsely stated that he was running for the U.S Senate at a campaign event just Monday night.
In any case, it doesn’t appear as if the Democratic primary field has any candidates willing to argue for nuance and moderation against calls to eliminate the American firearms industry wholesale.
Gun Owners of America Reveals Its List of Endorsement in Texas
The Lone Star State Will be a Major Battleground for Gun Control this Election Season
Texans will soon be pulling the lever for a slew of candidates at all levels of government during election on November 3, 2020.
Issues such as gun policy will be on the top of voters’ minds. Groups such as the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety have already dropped $8 million in hopes of flipping the Texas House.
What used to be a safe Republican state, is now looking more like a battleground state. The Left recognize that and the Right must respond accordingly. Some groups such as Gun Owners of America (GOA) have gotten the memo and are beginning to fight back.
Part of their strategy is to inform voters about candidate’s pro-gun records to know who is on their side and who is on the gun controllers’ payroll. GOA released a list of candidates it endorsed for the 2020 elections In addition, it published Texas congressional ratings, assessed the pro-Second Amendment credentials of U.S. congressional candidates.
GOA is America’s oldest no-comprise gun lobby. Since its founding in 1976, GOA has called for a total repeal of unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal level and has taken on state level fights such as passing Constitutional Carry
