Perhaps when Politifact first went online, many believed them to be honest and reliable. However, over the past couple of years, Politifact has become another fake news tool of the liberal left and have proven to be completely unreliable.

Breitbart has exposed another example of Politifact’s left-leaning inaccuracy and untrustworthiness.

They point out that Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) has openly supported past Democratic efforts to pass sweeping gun-control laws, including universal background checks. In 2013, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) tried to push a bill through the Senate that would require a background check for every form of gun ownership and Tester fully supported that bill.

Tester is running for re-election and is being challenged by Republican Matt Rosendale, who has pointed Tester’s support for gun control and specifically for universal background checks which is really a federal gun registry in disguise. However, Politifacts has reported that Tester has never supported a federal gun registry.

In 2013 Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) voted for a body of gun controls pushed by Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Montana Democrats are now employing a bait-and-switch tactic to get Tester re-elected in 2018.

Here is how Tester’s support for gun control unfolded–shortly after the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary, Manchin began pushing universal background checks for gun sales. Such checks have long been a dream of gun-grabbing Democrats and were one of the big gun control goals of Barack Obama.

Would the checks have prevented Sandy Hook? No. The gunman who attacked Sandy Hook stole his weapons, so point-of-sale gun controls were powerless. Yet Manchin pushed the gun controls because there was an emotional window of opportunity. And Tester voted for the gun controls when they came before the Senate.

The gun controls failed, but that does the change the fact that Tester supported them…

Liberals who deny that universal background checks amount to a federal gun registry have no clue or refuse to admit how universal background checks work. It requires every exchange of gun ownership to submit to an FBI background check. If a grandfather wants to give his 10-year-old grandson, both the grandfather and grandson would have to submit to an FBI background check, placing both of them on a federal gun registry.
