‘Preposterous lie!’ Disbelief and anger rage over Obama’s claim on kids and guns

*Editor’s Note: The original headline was incorrect. This post has been modified to show correct headline.

In Obama’s world, it’s easier – and cheaper – for kids to get guns than it is to get a book.

This nugget came from the President’s appearance on CNN’s “Guns in America” town hall on Thursday, in which he, not surprisingly, pushed his anti-gun agenda while throwing facts to the wind.

“There are neighborhoods around the country where it is easier for a 12- or 13-year-old to purchase a gun, and cheaper than it is for them to get a book,” Obama said.

Reaction on social media was swift and direct.
