If Barack Obama was "lying" in Brazil, then conservatives would probably know what those 'untruths' were then right? Or was Limbaugh really?

...wasted again?

Update:

Anoncontard has me blocked of course.

Update 2:

An AR-15 is a lightly modified machine gun, built from the same patent as the M16. It is effectively a machine gun.

    "Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time -- without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns." - Obama, in Brazil

    You can't buy any weapon at any time. In fact buying even the most mundane weapon often comes with a waiting period

    There is a ton of regulation over the industry

    You can't buy weapons over the internet

    And machine guns were effectively banned in 1986, unless you have a LOT of money and jump thru a TON of ATF regulations to buy a tax stamp to make your purchase legal.

    (Or you can go to the streets of Chicago where guns are illegal, and you can probably buy any gun you want at any time, with no regulation)

      There are, in fact, hundreds of companies that advertise and sell weapons "over the internet". It is generally only "illegal" if you are transferring it to another state without the intervention of a federally licensed firearms dealer (FFL).

    6 Gun Lies (And One Truth) Obama Told In Brazil

    1. Anybody Can Buy a Firearm

    False. There are three major federal restrictions on who may purchase firearms in the United States (not including the many state and local restrictions).

    2. Any Firearm Can Be Purchased

    False. Under federal law, machine guns made after 1986 may not be purchased by civilians (more on this under lie No. 5 below). Also, the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA) regulates other firearms which may be purchased, but clearly not in the way insinuated by Obama’s comments (more on this under lie No. 3 below).

    3. A Firearm Can Be Purchased at Any Time

    False. When purchasing a firearm from a federally licensed gun dealer (FFL), background-check requirements must be satisfied. In most cases, this includes a background check being run through the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). However, many states use their own background check system.

    4. Firearms Can Be Purchased with Few Regulations

    False. If you’ve been paying attention so far, the United States has many regulations on the purchase and possession of firearms.

    5. Firearms Can Be Purchased Over the Internet

    False (well, at least in the way the comment was likely meant). It seems clear that Obama wants people to think that a gun can be purchased online and shipped straight to a purchaser’s home like any other online purchase. This is not true.

    6. Anyone Can Purchase a Machine Gun

    False. First, see lie No. 2 above. “Anyone” may not purchase a firearm, let alone a machine gun.

      None of your so-called "analysis" proves that Obama was lying, given that everything he said may be true under some circumstances. The implication that the statements were universally true is just political grandstanding that nobody should take seriously.

    All politicians lie, it's the nature of the beast. All humans lie, but politicians get money for lying. They lie for votes, for lobbyists, for all types of material gain. Both Trump and Obama are lying scumbags. If you think that's true of one, but not the other, you fell for the okie doke.

    Barack Obama was "lying" in Brazil, if his lips were moving...Republicans no longer monitor the 'movements' of the crackhead in chief. Or read of his, new 'auto' bios.

    Source(s): Was prof Gruber standing next to him...Or was Gruber running the 'prompter.

      Gruber was the Obama arithmetic guru.

    Rush Limbaugh does not truth from falsehood. Anyone who believes anything he says without checking it out, is going to be deluded.

    During the press conference, Trump repeated "I have nothing to do with Russia" five

    times.38 He stated that "the closest [he] came to Russia" was that Russians may have purchased a

    home or condos from him.39 He said that after he held the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in

    2013 he had be.en interested in working with Russian companies that "wanted to put a lot of money

    into developments in Russia" but " it never worked out."40 He explained, "[t]rankly, I didn't want

    to do it for a couple of different reasons. But we had a major developer ... that wanted to develop

    property in Moscow and other places. But we decided not to do it."41 The Trump Organization,

    however, had been pursuing a building project in Moscow-the Trump Tower Moscow project-

    from approximately September 2015 through June 2016, and the candidate was regularly updated

    on developments, including possible trips by Michael Cohen to Moscow to promote the deal and

    by Trump himself to finalize it.42
