Hillary and her team, also known as the mainstream media, weren’t the only ones busy fact-checking during Monday night’s presidential debate.
Clinton went after the NRA and Second Amendment with the hyperbolic claim that America is experiencing both a “plague” and a “gun epidemic.”

“@NRA: Violent crime has been at historic lows throughout the U.S…. ” in spite of record highs in Democrat cities with strict gun control.
