As President Obama prepares to head to Colorado on Wednesday to push gun control legislation, some are calling into question the validity of a key statistic he’s using to tout his message on near-universal background checks.

During several speeches, Obama has said 40 percent of all gun purchases were made without a background check.

But that number is nearly two decades old and comes from a poll with a relatively tiny sample size. Gun rights groups like the National Rifle Association, as well as The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker,” are calling out the president’s stat, saying his numbers on background checks need a background check of their own.

During a speech last week, Obama asked,“Why wouldn’t we want to make it more difficult for a dangerous person to get his or her hand on a gun? Why wouldn’t we want to close the loophole that allows as many as 40 percent of all gun purchases to take place without a background check? Why wouldn’t we do that?”

The oft-cited figure, it turns out, was pulled from a 1997 study done by the National Institute of Justice. In the study, researchers estimated about 40 percent of all firearm sales took place through people other than licensed gun dealers. The conclusion was based on data from a 1994 survey of 2,568 households. Of those, only 251 people answered the question about where they got their guns.

PolitiFact tracked down the co-author of the study, Duke University professor Philip Cook, and asked him if he thought the 40 percent estimate is accurate.

“The answer is I have no idea,” Cook reportedly told PolitiFact.“This survey was done almost 20 years ago.”

Would you handle the cowardly left wing threats in the same way? I bet not!

The Left doesn't go to public town hall meetings armed with assault weapons... these disgusting cowards on the right are the only idiots who would look to shoot those with whom they can't debate or win the political argument against.

So you have a problem with people exercising their rights? Your hypocrisy is showing...again. You exercise your First Amendment right by getting on here and spewing your leftist propaganda yet you would deny others from exercising their Second Amendment right. How very liberal of you.

How would you handle it? With violence, with a gun? Would you volunteer to handle the left wing radicals who make the same threats?

What proof does she have?
Just take her word for it?
I guess she shouldn't be too worried as she has a nice public paid armed guard detail (so Maloney Baloney, are your bodyguards subkect to the 7 round magazine restriction? Didn't think so.)
As far as threats, the genius who doesn't know how to spell Marine Corps is willing to commit violence based upon its pin brained view of the world, but apparently that is okay.
If Maloney Baloney wants to target a specific group in an attempt to cause them problems, she is bound to upset some people.
If the telephone were around at the time, I'm sure that there were American colonists who would have phoned in some death threats to the British when they decided to confisgate the weapons that started the Revolutionary War...
Perhaps history repeats itself...

Here we go, Marine Fraud Pat decllaring itself judge, jury and executioner. If Pattie Cakes shows up at your door, you could call 911 for the criminal trespass and show your appreciation for its visit by sending him several high speed tokens of your affection.
The headline would read:
Attempted break in by crazed imposter wearing uniform.
Armed citizen given award for terminating violent rampage.

Here in CO
Industries are leaving
Conventions are getting cancelled
Hunters are canceling trips
All because of newly passed gun laws that county Sherriffs are calling
Unenforceable.
Thanks, knee-jerk politicians
We'll remember this come next local elections.

Why is it that you cowards on the right always throw rocks and then hide your hands?
You fools proudly flaunted assault weapons and handguns at town hall meetings and then when people who proclaimed the very beliefs you spew on here daily you desperately try to push them off as left.
You fools scratch and claw at every attempt to regulate guns but won't claim your brothern when they use guns to kill.
