PolitiFact California reporter, Chris Nichols, joins Insight with some fact-checks around gun violence.

He checked the claim "More than 32,000 Americans lose their lives to gun violence each year," which turned out to be "Mostly True."

Nichols brings another fact-check about how Bernie Sanders did in the California primary – an online news organization claimed that he won by a landslide but two-thirds of the vote remained uncounted – they gave that a "Pants On Fire" rating. 

He also checked Hillary Clinton's claim that "the economy does better with a Democrat" in the White House. The rating for that was given a "Half True."

Find out why these claims were given the rating they received here on Insight.
