Politifact: Bullock Using False Gun Control Stats

Governor Steve Bullock (D-MT) is getting called out by Politifact for using false statistics when it comes to the gun control debate. Bullock, desperate to be named as a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, was recently in Milwaukee, Wisconsin raising money for Wisconsin Democrats.

Politifact analyzed a line by Bullock where he argued that a quarter of gun buyers bought a gun without a background check. Politifact rated this claim as “mostly false,” adding:
But it takes into account people who acquired guns either by purchasing them, or by simply receiving them, for example as a gift.
