Joe Biden left the viewers of the Democratic debate confused on Tuesday when he said that 150 million Americans have died of violence from weapons since 2007.
In the last blunder of the former vice-president during the White House race, Biden enormously exaggerated the deaths of firearms in the US since the law was passed, giving arms manufacturers immunity from liability for gun violence.
“Imagine if I stood here and said that we grant immunity to pharmaceutical companies, we grant immunity to tobacco companies. That has caused massacre in our streets, “Biden said during the Democratic debate in South Carolina on Tuesday night.
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the weapon manufacturers from liability, more than all wars, including Vietnam from that moment.”

The blunder of Biden came when during the Democratic debate on Tuesday he wanted to achieve his goal on party leader Bernie Sanders about his earlier support for a law that protected weapon manufacturers against the death of weapons.
In 2005, Sanders voted to approve the law on the protection of legal arms trade – something Biden himself voted against.
Biden, 77, threw his biggest rival and said the law “caused the slaughter on our streets.”
Sanders was forced to defend himself and admitted that he had cast a “bad vote” on that occasion.
He said: “I have cast thousands of votes, including bad votes. That was a bad voice. “
Biden’s jibe, however, was overshadowed by his gross miscalculation of the number of gun deaths in the US.

Biden’s jibe was overshadowed by his gross miscalculation of the number of gun deaths in the US – which, according to the Center for American Progress, stood at 373,663 between 2007 and 2017
According to the Center for American Progress, the number of deaths from firearms – both violent and accidental deaths – in the US between 2007 and 2017 was 373,663, a fraction of the aforementioned 150 million Biden.
Voters went to Twitter to mock the bizarre claims and raise new concerns about his mental capacity.
One person tweeted: “How many people does he think there are in America?”
Another message, “Biden for Senate 2020” – a reference to the other blunder of the candidate a few hours earlier, where he had told the crowd that he was running for the senate.
Biden spoke to a crowd in South Carolina on Monday and seemed to forget which campaign he was running.
He said: “My name is Joe Biden and I am a democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look at me, if you like what you see, help, vote for the other Biden. “
A clip of his last blunder was posted on Twitter by activist Shaun King, who wrote, “This is so sad.”
He added, “I really wish he had retired and not submitted to the hardships of this campaign.”
Donald Trump Jr swept to Biden on Twitter and said, “Like I said when is enough with Joe?”
President Trump’s eldest son added: “He’s been running for 18 months and doesn’t know what he’s running for? If his family had not taken millions out of public office, they would have had to step in long ago. This is not right. ”
Biden made a series of blunders during his campaign for the presidential election.

Biden made a series of blunders during his campaign for the presidential election
Last August, he told a group of Asian and Spanish voters that “poor children are just as smart and as talented as white children.”
The former vice president quickly realized his mistake and added rich children. Black children. Asian children. “
In September he set the murders of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 in the 70s.
He also changed the timeline around the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in February 2018, and said he was in office when he had already left the White House.
That month he was also called upon to get many details wrong when awarding a Navy war hero the Silver Star.
He got the rank of the soldier and the military branch wrong, along with the type of medal, the location and the time frame of the crucial moment and the act of courage he was worth.
This was followed by a blunder in December during his “No Malarkey” bus tour through Iowa, where he called a Marine Corps veteran “bold.”
Merle Gorman, 83, questioned him about his involvement in Ukraine and accused him of “selling access to the president” to which Biden called him a “damned liar” and said, “That is not true and nobody has ever said that.” Nobody has proven that, “said Biden. But look, fat, here’s the deal. ”
Biden has been beaten by the Trump campaign and his mental ability has been repeatedly questioned after a number of blunders
Then earlier this month, he made a reference to which states had already voted saying “it’s important that Iowa and Nevada have spoken” while he should have said Iowa and New Hampshire.
Then confusion arose about his late son Beau Biden, when Biden described him as a former United States Attorney General last week during a town hall event, while he was in fact Delaware Attorney General.
Biden’s last blunder came when he tried to promote his promise to tackle gun laws and come to the NRA if elected president.
“If I am elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association]”I come for you and weapon manufacturers, I will hire you and I will beat you,” said Biden.
Tighter weapon laws play a major role in Biden’s campaign, including promises to buy back high-capacity assault weapons and magazines in American communities and to reduce the supply of weapons.
