Fact Checking Obama's Claim on Gun Access

Federal Law: you must be at least 18 to buy long gun, like a rifle or shotgun and you must be 21 to buy a handgun. No exceptions. Easier to get a gun than a book? What complete nonsense! Even on the back market guns sell for hundreds of dollars.

Obama said in some areas it was easier to get a gun than a book.
President Barack Obama said it is easier in some neighborhoods to get a gun than a book. Is that true? The fact checkers weighed in and we have their verdict: it’s false. Here’s why: To buy a gun in most states, you need to be 18 and pass a background check. To get a book, all you need is a library card. And when it comes to price, there is no evidence that books are more expensive than guns. So why does Obama keep making this false claim?
