If this doesn’t help you understand the tyranny of this regime, nothing will.
Biden said Thursday that the Second Amendment “is not absolute” during a rare, prime-time speech on the recent wave of horrific, mass shootings.
“I respect the culture and the tradition and the concerns of lawful gun owners, Biden said from the White House. “At the same time, the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute.”
“We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” Biden affirmed. “And if we can’t ban assault weapons then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21.”
But instead of sticking around to twist lawmakers’ arms, Biden planned to immediately fly to his beach house in Delaware for an extended weekend getaway.
The president was initially scheduled to depart at 5:30 p.m. but delayed the trip so he could deliver the 7:30 p.m. address.
During his 17-minute address, Biden offered some proposals that could potentially win Republican support, including addressing the nation’s “mental health crisis.”
“There’s a serious youth mental health crisis in this country we have to do something about,” he said.
Speaking of metal health, Biden’s brain is deteriorating before our eyes. This addlebrained numbnuts has access to the nuclear codes.
……At one point, Biden made the disputed claim that a 10-year federal ban on assault weapons from 1994 to 2004 had reduced the rate of mass shootings.
“Nine categories of semiautomatic weapons were included in that ban, like AK-47s and AR-15s. And in the 10 years it was law, mass shootings went down,” he said.
“After Republicans let the law expire in 2004 and those weapons were allowed to be sold again, mass shootings tripled. Those are the facts.”
But a recent review by FactCheck.org found evidence for that assertion to be inconclusive, although one expert — Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research — said, “It’s clear that there is an association between weapon features, most notably ammunition capacity, and how many people are shot in these incidents.”
……Lawmakers in the Senate are locked in negotiations over potential legislation sparked by the Uvalde massacre and members of the House Judiciary Committee held a special hearing Thursday on legislation that would raise the age threshold for purchasing semiautomatic rifles from 18 to 21.
The House bill, which could be voted on as soon as next week, would also make it illegal to manufacture or possess large-capacity magazines.
It’s unlikely to pass the Senate in its current form due to near-unanimous Republican opposition.
I own firearms. I support the United States Constitution. I support the right to defend myself, my family, and my home from thugs who would rather steal than earn like the rest of working Americans.
I will not forfeit my freedom or my life for the sake of ‘gun control’. When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away and I don’t have Biden’s security system of bodyguards.
When some mentally deranged nutbag goes on a killing spree, all of the anti-Second Amendment trolls come crawling out of the woodwork. The only ones who would benefit from oppressive anti-gun rights are criminals who don’t give a damn about the law to begin with. Felons and unhinged crazies like Salvador Ramos have at least one thing in common; they go for soft targets; vulnerable, unarmed people who cannot fight back.
The leftie nutburgers like to spew their bullshit over ‘gun control’, but seem oblivious to the daily carnage in Dem-controlled ganglands like Chicago, where people have to step over a fucking pile of bodies just to walk down the street. The homicide rates in black neighborhoods is astronomical, but the only black lives that matter are the ones Al Sharpton can use for exploitation and political points.
Lefties are selective about which shootings to bother with and whether to blame the shooter or the gun.
Governments that want total dictatorship over their country’s citizens usually disarm them first. Criminals and dictators prefer unarmed citizens.
If you value your freedoms, defend them.
