The following article, Watch: Biden Claims 150 Million People Killed By Guns Since 2007, Warns Manufacturers He’s Coming, was first published on Flag And Cross.
You’re probably reading that headline and saying to yourself, Nah, Joe didn’t say 150 million people were killed by guns since 2007. There’s no way even he would say something that ridiculous!
Well, my friends, you’d be wrong. According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate. 150 million people, all dead – from guns.
Just…I mean…Joe…WHAT IS THE DEAL, BRO!?
The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

The "Moderators" are as dumb and useless as the candidates.
It's clear they can't fact check in realtime or anytime for that matter.

Joe Biden just said that 150 million Americans have been killed in gun violence since 2007. That’s a little less than half of our population. The guy’s a complete nut job.

Between that and net neutrality it’s a miracle any of us are still alive.

There should be more houses for sale then. A lot of abandoned cars also.

Did Joe mean to say 1.5 million? Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million.
From NBC News:
More Americans have died from gunshots in the last 50 years than in all of the wars in American history.
Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incidents, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, approximately 1.2 million service members have been killed in every war in U.S. history, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs and iCasualties.org, a website that maintains an ongoing database of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
