WaPo Gives Sanders Four Pinocchios for False ‘Gun Show Loophole’ Claim

The Washington Post‘s fact-checker gave Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) four Pinocchios, its worst rating, for inaccurate claims he made about gun sales without background checks.
Sanders said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that “We have to end the absurdity of the gun show loophole. Forty percent of the guns in this country are sold without any background checks.”
Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler was scathing of Sanders’ untruth straight from the start, noting he has addressed the inaccurate claim in the past.
