WJ: Democrats don’t exactly have the sterling reputation when it comes to accurately representing the issues of gun ownership and gun control.
But a statistic cited Tuesday by former Vice President Joe Biden may just be the most egregious yet.
The moment happened during Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Charleston, South Carolina, when Biden was making a point about gun manufacturers.
