PolitiFact Separates Fact From Fiction on Gun Reform

Jon Greenberg, staff writer at PolitiFact, discusses gun reform and the claims made by both Democrats and Republicans in the weeks following the Parkland school shooting.

We first talk about comments made by the NRA's Dana Loesch who cherry-picked terrorism deaths in France to argue against an assault weapon ban in the states.

Greenberg also discusses a social media post claiming that you can't vote without showing an I.D. but you can buy a gun without an I.D. PolitiFact rated this claim mostly false. Greenberg adds that the only place in the U.S. that does not require an I.D. to buy a gun is at a gun show.

Greenberg weighs in briefly on whether he thinks we will see gun reform after the latest school shooting. He says his best suggestion is to take a look at our track record, and so far, little has been done.
