Obama flat out lies, falsely claims anyone can buy machine guns over Internet

It’s easy to tell when Barack Obama lies — his lips move. While speaking at VTEX DAY, a conference in São Paulo, Brazil, on Thursday, the former president was caught telling a number of lies about gun laws in the United States.

According to the Obama, anyone can buy machine guns, even over the Internet, because there’s almost nothing that regulates the sale of guns.

“Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time — without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns,” he said.

Here’s video of his lies, posted to Twitter:

And another:

Naturally, the BS meter pinged loudly on social media:

Of course.

One person noted:

The Daily Caller spells out the many ways in which Obama distorted the truth:

U.S. Federal firearms laws are stricter than Obama represented. Gun purchasers must be at least 18 for rifles and shotguns, and 21 for handguns, and pass a background check if they buy from a dealer, according to the National Rifle Association.

In addition, fully automatic machine guns cannot be sold to private citizens, as written in the National Firearms Act.

Whitney Tipton added: “Obama’s comments about guns are timely for Brazil. In January, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro issued a temporary decree that expands access for people to buy and carry guns, according to the Daily Mail.”
