How can you tell when Obama lies?  That’s easy.  His lips move.

On Tuesday, President Obama detailed his efforts to restrict guns while bypassing Congress.  One of the statements he made, however, was found to be completely false:

Dana Loesch, among others, called Obama out on his abject bald-faced lie:

Good question.

Loesch, who has written extensively on the subject, noted:

You can’t order a gun on the Internet and have it shipped to your house all Amazon Prime-like. If you purchase online you must go to an FFL and the transaction is only completed after you pass your background check in the store. I’ve purchased several guns this way.

There is no such thing as a “loophole.” Everything is regulated. I’ve written at length on this:

Background checks already exist for purchases made online. Newsflash to Manchin: When you purchase guns online they aren’t shipped to your house like an Amazon delivery. They must be shipped to a FFL where you then go, fill out a 4473, get your background check, and if cleared you can take it home. Period. This law already exists. You cannot carry a firearm, much less purchase one, if you are a prohibited possessor be it at a store, gun show, or Internet. Period. It’s already regulated.

Bingo.  But the truth no longer matters — only the narrative.

What else can we expect from a man who apparently lies about everything?

Loesch has a great deal more to say on the subject, and it’s well worth reading.

Meanwhile, here’s a video message from NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre…
