Biden Lies About ‘No Background Check’ At Gun Shows, Psaki Says That’s Actually ‘Not His Belief’

National File

President Joe Biden made false claims about gun rights on Thursday, claiming that when “You go to a gun show, you can buy whatever you want, and no background check.” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ran damage control for Biden in Thursday’s White House briefing, claiming that he does not actually believe that there are no background checks at gun shows.

“Require background checks for anyone purchasing a gun at a gun show, or an online sale,” Biden said. Background checks are already mandatory for online sales and sales by licensed gun dealers at gun shows.

“Most people don’t know, you walk into a store and you buy a gun, you have a background check,” Biden said. “But you go to a gun show, you can buy whatever you want– and no background check.”

When Psaki was pressed about the President’s false claims during Thursday’s press briefing, she completely contradicted Biden.

“Is it the president’s belief that you do not have to undergo a background check when you are at a gun show?” Psaki was asked.

“No, it’s not his belief,” she replied. “He believes that background checks should be universal.” When reminded of Biden’s direct claim that there are “no background checks,” Psaki said, “Well, we know what his position is.”

Biden’s son Hunter lied on a background check about his drug abuse to obtain a firearm, which he later lost:

Hunter Biden lied about his history of abuse on a background check completed for the purpose of obtaining a firearm in Delaware. He later lost the firearm in a fight with his deceased brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, with whom he was in a relationship, according to Politico.

“Hunter responded ‘no’ to a question on the transaction record that asks, ‘Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?’” reports Politico. The left wing website notes that this happened in 2018, only five years after Biden was ejected from the Navy after he tested positive for cocaine. Politico fails to note that 2018 was also the year Hunter Biden uploaded photos of himself with a crack pipe in his mouth that were later leaked to the New York Post, suggesting he was a current drug user. Politico also notes that lying on the form is a felony, though it is rarely prosecuted.
