Joe Biden held a town hall-style event this week and, as part of the evening, pushed the issue of gun control.
If Joe Biden is going to talk about guns, it would be nice if he at least used accurate information, but no such luck.
Biden talked about the AR-15 rifle and got so many things so wrong.

President Biden botches AR-15 facts while stumping against gun violence in Pennsylvania
President Biden made gun-related gaffes during a campaign-style event in Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon.
Biden traveled to Wilkes-Barre to promote his “Safer America” agenda, which is focused on deterring crime and helping law enforcement. Biden’s policies are also geared towards toughening up gun laws and expanding background checks.
During the speech, Biden made an unsourced claim about the speed that an AR-15 shoots bullets.
“Do you realize the bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun?” Biden asked rhetorically during his speech…
Biden also claimed that “AR-15s just rip the body apart,” which is also inaccurate. Damage from a gunshot depends on the type of bullets used.
Biden also ridiculed Second Amendment advocates in the Tuesday speech, sarcastically calling them “brave” for believing guns are a tool for self-defense.
Who is giving Biden these ridiculous and inaccurate talking points?
"Do you realise that the bullet out of an AR-15 travels 5 times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun."

So much for the Democrats wanting to stop the spread of misinformation.
