LIE: Hillary Clinton asserted that Bernie Sanders “voted for immunity [for] gun makers and sellers,” which provided them with a “total pass” when it comes to damage and injuries resulting from said firearms.
TRUTH: Actually, Sanders voted in favor of an amendment to the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which removed a prohibition on Amtrak passengers from carrying guns in checked baggage. In other words, Sanders voted in favor of allowing passengers to check their firearms if they provided advance notice that they would be checking a firearm.

No matter the reason for Hillary Clinton’s proclivity to lie again and again and again, it is a major problem. Indeed, when the potential leader of a republic is prone to repeatedly lying and engaging in half-truths and misrepresentations there is no telling what it will eventually result in: Undermining the U.S. Constitution of the nation? Political malfeasance of all kinds? Covering up special dispensations for the Clinton Foundation? In the end, the only one who may know for sure – and that’s not even a safe bet when one is a habitual liar – is “The Teflon Blonde.”
