Breaking news: half of everyone you know recently died from gun violence, according to Joe Biden.
Joe is having a rough week. First he claimed his late son was an Attorney General of the United States, then he claimed he was arrested in South Africa, and finally, he told a crowd at a rally in South Carolina that he was running for Senate.
None of these things are true, obviously, but somehow he still managed to top himself last night with the whopper of all whoppers.
At the latest Democrat primary debate Joe claimed 150 million Americans have been killed by gun violence since 2007.
Obviously this isn't even close to being true. That would mean almost half the population of America died over the past decade or so from gun shot wounds.
The real number is closer to 1,559,000 (since 1969).
Is Joe Biden high?
