bullets fired by an AR-15
It’s really easy to tell Dementia Joe is lying. His crooked lips move, and noise issues forth. Such was the case when the liar occupying the Oval Office spoke at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday.
According to Biden, bullets fired by an AR-15-style weapon trip five times faster than any other gun.
“The bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun,” the lying fraud falsely claimed.
He actually made that easily debunked claim with a straight face.
Here’s a video:
"Do you realize the bullet out of an AR-15 travels 5 times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun."

Writing at Breitbart, AWR Hawkins debunked the claim with actual facts — something Biden avoids like a vampire avoids sunlight:
Ironically, on June 30, 2022, Field & Stream did an in-depth look at the “Five Fastest Rifle Cartridges” and the two AR-15 rounds, .223 and 5.56, did not even make the cut.
Here are the top rounds, as listed by Field & Stream, and the feet per second (fps) they travel upon being fired:
- .220 Swift — A 40-Grain .220 Swift round moves approx. 4,300 fps.
- .257 Weatherby Magnum — An 87-Grain .257 Weatherby Magnum round moves approx. 3,700+ fps.
- .30/378 Weatherby — An 165-Grain .30/378 Weatherby round moves approx. 3,400+ fps.
- .224 Clark — An 80-Grain .224 Clark round moves approx. 3,500+ fps.
- .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer — A 50-Grain .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer round moves approx. 4,600 fps.
By contrast the two AR-15 rounds move at approx. 2,700 – 3,100 fps.
Why are we not surprised that Biden would lie about this?
One person (out of many others) noted:
Yesterday the President claimed AR-15 ammo was 5 times faster than normal ammunition. Where’s your label? https://t.co/WhxBVexVv2

That’s not the only lie His Lying Demented Fraudulence put forward, as Hawkins reported:
Biden also claimed, “the AR-15 just rips the body apart.”
In actuality, the damage done by any round from any gun depends on the type of ammunition used. And with the popular .223 and 5.56 rounds, the result is most often not expansive damage but overpenetration. The small bullet — a .22 caliber — goes right through.
And yet, he gets away with telling these lies every single day.
And this was on top of his lie that conservatives are running around killing police officers, as we reported earlier.
One has to wonder: Why does Biden lie so easily and so often? Surely he knows millions of Americans know better and will fact-check him, even if the lying liberal media won’t.
God help us.
