Backing an agenda to crack down on Second Amendment rights, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) echoed common gun control talking points last week, highly exaggerating the rate of “gun violence.” The claims were so weak, even left-wing PolitiFact nailed the freshman congresswoman with a false rating.

“Supporting my colleagues’ call on Senate Majority Leader to vote on H.R. 8, 1112 & 1158,” Omar pushed. “Every day on average 500 people die from gun violence. How many more lives will we let gun violence claim?”

In its review of Omar’s claim that 500 people are killed in the United States every day due to “gun violence,” PolitiFact admitted: “The actual figure is nowhere near that high.”

“Based on the latest federal figures, for 2017, the average per day was 109 — that’s counting deaths resulting from suicides, homicides, unintentional and undetermined deaths as well as those from law enforcement,” the partisan fact-checker said. “And it’s 100 if you use a five-year average for 2013 to 2017.”

“We rate Omar’s statement False.”

According to Politifact’s Tom Kertscher, a representative from Omar’s office claimed the Democrat was referencing gun deaths worldwide. However, as noted by Kertscher, the Minnesota rep. posted the claim while pushing a gun control measure in the United States:

Omar’s spokesman, Jeremy Slevin, defended Omar’s use of the 500 figure. But he acknowledged to us that Omar’s tweet was in the context of domestic legislation and that the reference to 500 could have been more precise.

In other words, the cover-up is not very convincing.

The gun control measure Omar was backing, H.R. 8, “establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties (i.e., unlicensed individuals),” according to “Specifically, it prohibits a firearm transfer between private parties unless a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first takes possession of the firearm to conduct a background check. The prohibition does not apply to certain firearm transfers, such as a gift between spouses in good faith.”

The same week, Omar took a serious hit when reports surfaced claiming the congresswoman filed taxes with her now-husband while she was married to someone else, a violation of federal law.

“According to the Associated Press, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board mentioned that Omar’s financial disclosures contained some irregularities, and although they aren’t the ones to ultimately investigate and punish her for them, the board felt they were worth mentioning.

‘Omar and her husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015 — before they were actually married and while Omar was legally wed to another man,’ a practice that runs afoul of both Minnesota state law and federal tax law.”

    It’s not about gun violence. They know damn well we’ll need those weapons if the libtards ever get full control of our government. Our government is so corrupt, it needs replaced. OUR representatives are bought and paid for by lobbyists. As she said “ it’s all about the Benjamin’s.

    I could buy those numbers if they include suicides from watching MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, The View and any movie Whoopi Goldberg ever stared in. Chelsea Handler and Samantha Bee viewers would account for more than 50% of those numbers.

    ““Every day on average 500 people die from gun violence?” Sounds like Obama hey MUST take our guns to proceed to the next step of Takeover. Politifacts is a great ally.

    Notice a pattern:

    “Anybody can buy any weapon, any time without much, if any, regulation. They buy it over the internet. They can buy machine guns.” ~Barack Obama on Thursday, May 30th, 2019 in an on stage interview in Brazil

    I am not surprised at the lies she tells because this is what I have come to expect from most Muslims because they are taught that. I wish to hell that the GOOD Muslims, of which there are many in the USA, would rise up and speak out against those who have no interest to assimilate and make the total Country a better place. Those extreme Muslims like her want to conquer our Country. We must STOP THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
