Now we’re just getting into the realm of the absurd.

The same day that the story broke about a Democratic Congresswoman who though gun magazines could only be used once, now the president himself is spreading mistruths about guns.

The president told donors at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that the gun used in the Sandy Hook shooting was “a fully automatic weapon.”

No, he didn’t just misspeak either. He started to say semi-automatic weapon, and then corrected himself to say fully automatic weapon.

I guess outright lies are on the table now.

Here is the quote from the White House transcript of the event.

Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon – by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.
