Biden Says He's Not Done With Anti-Gun Action

With an election coming later this year, it's time for President Joe Biden to actually speak with the press. We know good and well that nothing is going to be off-the-cuff if it can be helped because, well, POTATUS isn't exactly mentally competent enough to handle that.

So anything he answers is something that's been vetted.

I bring this up because Biden recently spoke with a reporter from the Spanish-language network Univision. I didn't learn about the interview until the next day, but it appears that President Biden had to offer some thoughts on guns.

The question asked was riddled with falsehoods, including the idea that guns are the leading cause of death among kids (it's not) and that guns are a primary concern among voters (again, it's not). The answer though...

From our friends over at The Truth About Guns:

And here’s Biden’s response, just as riddled with falsehoods in support of The Narrative(tm) as the question:

Absolutely. Look, I, along with Dianne Feinstein, passed the first limitation on assault weapons and the number of bullets that could be in a rifle. The idea anybody needs 100 rounds in a rifle, in an AR-15, I was out in Uvalde. I met with every one of those families. I spent four hours with them. I looked at the pain in their faces. I saw what they felt. I could feel it. And the idea that — and his phrase [in] another context where there was a mass shooting, I think it was in El Paso, he said — they said, what to do about it, and he said, just get over it, you’ve got to get over it, the idea we don’t have background checks for anybody purchasing a weapon, the idea that we’re going to be in a position where he says that — he famously told the NRA that, don’t worry, no one’s going to touch your guns if I — from the very beginning, I used to teach the Second Amendment in law school, from the very beginning, there were limitations. You couldn’t own a cannon. You couldn’t — you could own a rifle or a gun, but there were certain things you couldn’t do. They weren’t weapons of war. And so, look, we passed the first major gun legislation in over 30 years when we passed the law that we recently passed that outlaws weapons that are made that you can’t trace and so on and so forth. And — but it’s not enough. I think we have to do more, and I am absolutely committed. And I’ve asked the Congress, and if I get a Congress and get re-elected, we’re going to do it again. We’re going to make sure we eliminate these weapons.

Before we begin, let's not that while this comes from before Thursday morning's announcement regarding the so-called gun show loophole, it's also clear that he wasn't talking about that in any way. He's got more planned.

First, Biden never taught the Second Amendment. He was technically a law school professor, but it was a figurehead position. There's no evidence he ever taught a single class, much less one on the Second Amendment.

That's pretty clear by his repeated argument that in the Founders' day, you couldn't own a cannon. You actually could and many people did. Private ships often had artillery on board so they could fight of pirates or other nations' privateers. The existence of a provision for letters of marque in the Constitution makes it pretty clear that the Founding Fathers expected at least some people to have artillery of their own.

So yeah, that alone is a falsehood.

So is the claim that rifles from back in the day weren't "weapons of war." 

Right up until World War II, the standard fighting rifle of the American military was a no different than the preferred hunting rifle of the American people. In fact, the preferred long gun of the American colonists was actually a rifle as opposed to the British's smooth-bore Brown Bess muskets.

The weapons of war and the weapons of hunting were nearly identical, if not a little worse than hunting firearms.

Yet through all of that is the big takeaway, that Biden isn't remotely finished coming after our guns. He doesn't trust you with an AR-15 or other modern sporting rifle. He doesn't trust you to make your own firearms. He doesn't trust you to do anything without government permission.

Despite the wins in the courts, the Biden administration has done more to undermine the right to keep and bear arms than any president in history. He doesn't care one bit for your right to keep and bear arms or any other right you possess.

If he gets another term, we'll be dealing with more of the same and we all know it.

So, let's make sure he doesn't get another term, shall we?
