Joe Biden Wants to Ban 9mm Pistols

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- A week after he told voters that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect “a magazine with a hundred clips in it,” 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden offered supporters more of his singular brand of anti-gun nonsense. While attending a private campaign event in Seattle, the former vice president reportedly called for a ban on 9mm pistols.

According to an article from the Seattle Times, Biden was in town to attend two private fundraisers, one of which was at the home of “a top Amazon executive.” The posh soiree set attendees back a princely $2,800 per-person. The other fundraiser was held at the home of a local philanthropist. That staider event offered donors a relative bargain with a $500 minimum price tag.

While speaking to attendees of the latter event, Biden claimed that he supports the Second Amendment. The 77-year-old then went on to ask “Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds?”

Biden also shared his tired and inaccurate claim that because there is a shot-shell restriction for migratory bird hunting, “We protect geese from Canada more than we do people.”

In targeting 9mm pistols, Biden has called for a ban on one of the most popular firearms in America. According to ATF’s Firearms Commerce in the United States FY 2019, there were over 3.6 million pistols manufactured in the U.S. in 2017. This was more than 1 million more guns than the next most popular category of firearms, rifles. Further, over 3.2 million handguns (including revolvers) were imported in to the U.S. in 2017.

In its annual report on the U.S. firearms industry, Shooting Industry reported that 9mm caliber pistols are the most commonly produced pistol and have been for many years. In 2017 alone, there were more than 1.7 million 9mm pistols produced in the U.S. Cumulatively there are tens of millions of 9mm pistols in the hands of law-abiding Americans.

The 9mm pistol is the choice of the nation’s leading civilian law enforcement agency, the FBI. Moreover, 9mm pistols are used by countless other federal, state, and local civilian law enforcement agencies. Biden alluded to the 9mm handgun’s military applications, but these agencies are not tasked with waging war on the public, but rather defending the public. This defensive application is the same reason that millions of Americans have chosen a 9mm pistol as their self-defense firearm.

The landmark Second Amendment U.S. Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller concerned a complete prohibition on the ownership of handguns in Washington, D.C. The opinion made clear that the Second Amendment at a minimum protects the right to acquire and possess firearms “in common use at the time” for lawful purposes such as self-defense.

It is impossible to square Biden’s statement with the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment. Many types of firearms, such as the AR-15, are “in common use” for lawful purposes like self-defense and therefore protected under the Second Amendment. The 9mm pistol is not just “in common use” for self-defense. As the production statistics indicate, it may be the most common firearm in use for self-defense. Therefore, it is not permissible under the Second Amendment for a jurisdiction to prohibit 9mm pistols. The law-abiding 9mm pistol-owning residents of the D.C., Chicago, and a handful of Chicago suburbs are a testament to this fact.

Biden’s political career is an ongoing spectacle of anti-gun incompetence. However, his high-profile gaffes can serve an instructive purpose. Biden is emblematic of a political class that cannot be bothered to learn the most rudimentary information concerning firearms and the right to keep and bear arms. Despite nearly four decades in the U.S. Senate and eight years as vice president, he is still a complete ignoramus on the subject. Biden and his cohort don’t want to know anything about guns, gun rights, or gun owners. Rather, they prefer to mindlessly indulge their anti-gun prejudice at every opportunity.

Joe needs to be asked how does he plan to enforce his stupid 9mm gun ban? Shotgun Joe’s just another anti-gun buffoon who continually says the dumbest things, he should be better informed and not speak. His reference to protecting geese says it all because the driving force of the three shot limit was sportsman’s conservation efforts to curb the commercial market hunters who killed hundreds of ducks and geese with just one shot from a punt gun. “Sportsmen who hunted for personal use of the killed waterfowl, rather than for profit like the market hunters, began advocating for hunting… Read more »

This is why Obama wanted Biden as VP, He didn’t want to be “Up staged” by Biden.
The same reason Obama hired incompetents in his administration. He was always the “smartest one in the room.”

What a moron. One wonders why the dims are so supportive of this idiot. He will get the nomination because he will be easy for the elite to control. Biden was never very smart and he is showing signs of senility now. What he doesn’t know about firearms would fill volumes. The democrats have really gone of the deep end. Openly calling for gun confiscation, socialized medicine, the “Green New Deal,” which will destroy our economy, open borders, (more dim voters) which will destroy our country. Biden debating Trump will be so funny. Biden can’t articulate and idea and can’t… Read more »

Oh, Creepy Uncle Joe, when the left has time left over from bashing President Trump, they use it to bash the NRA.

The NRA is bashing itself. The dims are so arrogant about “taking on the NRA” that they forget about the 2nd Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of American, and the 100 million plus gun owners who will flock to the polls in November 2020.

Sleepy Joe, How about the hypocrites in the DemoNcrat party start allowing LE and states to DO the right thing and GET proactive at schools and GUN FREE ZONES.(example when was the last mass shooting at a BLACK School/) never, WHY?, metal detectors and guards.) Do away with 95% of them, and allow the WOULD be shooter no chance to carry out the Mass Shootings.But, NO!, that’s not why you do it, you WANT the shootings to CONTINUE, so you can continue to brainwash the ignorant and those who could care less about anything but their OWN LIVES.

Maybe Joe is right! Mexico has a law forbidding civilians from owning any firearm chambered in a caliber used by police or the military and their murder rate is only 25 per 100,000 residents while the murder rate in the U.S. is 5 per 100,000 residents. Oh. Wait. Never mind. I see it now.

I don’t mind if they ban 9mm I use 40 S&W…OK GUYS…JUST KIDDING. I mind if they ban ANYTHING let alone 9mm pistols. As a matter of fact the 1934 NFA needs to be repealed. Short barrel rifles? WTF are those? The whole act is a violation of the 2nd amendment. And someone do away with BATF. Make it a chain of retails stores selling the Best Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

Biden is deranged. His brain is going on vacation to lala land continually. He should be allowed to drive. He should be red flagged.

All the old Laws passed are Unconstitutional and need to be OVERTURNED.
If we had a Supreme Court that went by the CONSTITUTION, the BOR’s the Founders Intent, English Common Law all the way back to Blackstone they MIGHT see where they are disingenuous at best, or totally Political, all the Dem appointed Justices are POLITCAL activists. The Founders never intended it to be this way.

If Ammoland quite running these losers giving them air time and replaced these spots with jury nullification articles progress in the right direction could be made. Americans convicting Americans and imposing unconstitutional sentences is anti-American and a surrender of ones country to globalists.

Agreed, in part. More time spent reporting on law and Constitution, effective state and local organizations like the Citizens Defense Leagues and tactics to disrupt and derail anti liberty efforts would be far more valuable than click bait. But folks need to be aware of the clown circus led by Bozos like Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg. They are a direct threat to the Republic. So are the Republicans, for that matter.

So this is a question I always have in my mind when this concept comes up in the comments:

My understanding of criminal court is that the judge decides all questions of law, such as which laws are applicable, and the jury is simply there to determine guilt or innocence on each charge. I know they can make sentencing recommendations, but all other things are up to the judge, are they not?

I’m asking a serious question, this is not a “You don’t know what you’re talking about.” post.

Well as time has passed since 1776, it is obvious the definitions and the way things work have too. HOWEVER, that doesn’t make it right. Try visiting fija.org and read their statements. Here is the definition of Jury from an 1828 Dictionary. JU’RY, noun [Latin juro, to swear.] A number of freeholders, selected in the manner prescribed by law, empaneled and sworn to inquire into and try any matter of fact, and to declare the truth on the evidence given them in the case. Grand juries consist usually of twenty four freeholders at least, and are summoned to try matters… Read more »

So I just read the Wikipedia article on jury nullification, and I understand this much better now that the judge’s instructions to the jury do not completely inform them of their power and duty. The part that stuck with me the most was, although a Canadian quote, “juries are not entitled as a matter of right to refuse to apply the law – but they do have the power to do so when their consciences permit of no other course.” I can get on board with that. I also found more precedence of juries deciding questions of law as Lion… Read more »

So true, Most Jury’s BELIEVE they MUST follow a Judges directions for sentencing guidelines, WRONG!. “The jury has more power than the Judge.”
That’s why if just ONE Juror thinks a law is unjust they can vote NOT guilty over a BAD law.Automatic retrial.
Most Judges today LIE to the Jurors.
Just like most Americans think if a Cop asks to search their car/vehicle THEY have no choice WRONG!.
The Officers must have PROBABLE CAUSE.
Wake up, and start finding out what your RIGHTS are, if you do not exercise them you LOSE them.

Ah yes, the geese. The neighborhood pond 200 yards from my house had in excess of 200 geese around it yesterday. They can be messy but they and the ducks, around fifty of those including a half dozen full time residents, are nice to see and the kids like them. Sometimes they come as far as my front yard to eat the seed pods that fall from the front tree. And Joe Biden is a joke. But, after all, he is a Democrat so there is that.

RoyD, Looking out my window there are Elk and Pronghorn inside of 100 yards and scattered for miles across the high prairie and with not a neighbor in sight my belly stays full. Denver feeds the Geese to the disadvantaged, they have a program, steak for the socialists and Geese for the slaves.

Yep, I’m certain of it. Monday the shit is going to begin really unraveling, Americans should be prepared. This moment looks like the calm before The Storm.
