Bill Clinton Caught In Lie Over Mass Shootings “Fact”

 

 

 

” Former President Bill Clinton spoke at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday of last week. During his speech, he took time to assault guns and gun owners. But the facts he put forth were less than truthful, as we’ve come to expect from “Slick Willy.”

Well here comes his whopper. He demonstrated that he supports another “assault weapons ban” as he said,

“Half of all mass killings in the United States have occurred since the assault weapons ban expired in 2005. Half of all of them in the history of the country.”
