1. Clearly just "Half a Lie" from Hillary when she said, what was it? Most guns. NT

3. 1397 from New York? Hillary's got a lot of splaining to do.

4. I believe she said "guns per capita."

This makes her statement technically accurate. But misleading within the overall gun debate.

6. Please don't tell me that Hillary misstated, distorted, or otherwise misrepresented the truth!

7. That distortion and the per capita bullshit earned her three Pinocchios:

The number of crime guns in New York from Vermont is so small that it could even be attributed to one or two bad actors. Using the per capita measure of trafficked guns originating from Vermont is as pointless as counting guns trafficked per 100,000 head of cattle.
