Original Starting post for this thread:
President Barack Obama after the Toomey-Manchin background check amendment failed on Wednesday to clear the U.S. Senate accused the National Rifle Association of "spreading untruths" and putting the lives of Americans at risk. "A few minutes ago, a minority in the U.S. Senate ... blocked common sense gun reform," an angry Obama lectured. "All that happened today was the preservation of the loophole that allows dangerous criminals to buy guns without a background check." But no one was more adamant about their hatred for the NRA than MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell who last night accused the civil rights group of aiding and abetting the terrorist(s) responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings. "There are new developments tonight in the bombing investigation here in Boston," O'Donnell said. "But that investigation could be moving faster were it not for the successful lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association." "The NRA's efforts to guarantee that American mass murderers are the best-equipped mass murders in the world is not limited to murderers who use assault weapons and high-capacity magazines," he added. Yes, NRA members, whether you know it or not, you help fund an organization that's in the business of equipping mass murderers. "The NRA is also in the business of helping bombers get away with their crimes. Gunpowder could be traced by investigators to a buyer at the point of sale if gunpowder contained a taggant, an element that would enable tracing of the purchase of gunpowder," he explained. "But thanks to the National Rifle Association, identification taggants are required by law only in plastic explosives. The NRA has successfully blocked any requirements for such taggants in gunpowder. So such supremely helpful evidence as taggants are not available to the FBI in this investigation," he added. Well. That's different:

If this wasn't such a critical issue (loss of freedoms) the President's blaming his loss in Congress on gun groups spreading untruths would make for the funniest story this week. He was recently awarded 3 Pinocchios by the Washington Post and Politifact gave him a "half-truth" rating for his continued assertion that 40% of gun purchases are made without a background check. He's basing his claim on a 1997 DOJ study that looked at "transactions" including gifts, inheritance transfers, etc. as well as actual sales, pre-Brady Bill (you know that thing that created background checks). Even in 1994 it wasn't about purchases and today the authors of the study think it might have been as low as 14% if their 1997 study data was filtered for purchases vs. transactions. They admit no one knows what it is today now that Brady requires background checks on all handgun purchases through dealers.

The White House refuses to explain why they continue to misrepresent data from a nearly 20 year old study as if it were current and further misrepresent the actual content of the study.

He knows he's lying but he doesn't stop. Yet he gnashes his teeth and wrings his hands over the "falsehoods" he claims others used to defeat his agenda. Based on his track record it's likely falsehoods are truth and his truths are lies on this topic.
