Biden Calls for Gun Control that’s Already Law and Didn’t Work

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Joe Biden brought his confusing anti-gun rhetoric to Buffalo, Tuesday – a city still grieving the loss of 10 good souls who were cut down Saturday by a hell-bound madman.

Even though most of the victims have yet to be buried, Biden didn’t hesitate to use the solemn occasion as an opportunity to advocate for more gun control, in this case another federal “assault weapon” ban.

“There are certain things we can do,” Biden told the grieving crowd. “We can keep assault weapons off of our streets. We did it before and violence went down.”

Even the FBI has acknowledged that the Federal Assault Weapons Ban that Biden referenced, which was a part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, did little to deter or prevent crime.

Besides, New York already has a stringent “assault weapon” ban, as well as every other anti-gun law Biden has ever called for. They’re codified into state law, yet none of them worked.

The mass murderer was not stopped by New York’s SAFE Act, which bans AR-15s and similar weapons. The state’s ban on standard-capacity magazines didn’t stop him, nor did the New York’s mandatory background check requirement or its Red Flag gun-confiscation law.

New York State Police were called to the gunman’s high school last June because he threatened to commit a mass shooting during the school’s graduation ceremonies. He was involuntarily committed to a mental hospital for an evaluation,and was released after a day and a half. However, this did not trigger New York’s red-flag law, which should have stopped him from purchasing a firearm.

Rather than infringing upon the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens, Biden should focus on why yet another mass murderer was “known to law enforcement,” yet no action was taken before he began killing people.

joe bydung is a Pure IDIOT.

Ope

Isn’t what Biden is calling for the definition of insanity ? Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results ? Biden insanity.

Green Mtn. Boy

That’s why they are referred to as Leftards and Brandon is one of the stupidest MoFo”s ever born

Biden is a brain dead puppet for the globalist agenda.
Open borders, green new deal, equity not equality, socialism, wealth re-distribution, CITIZEN DISARMAMENT!

He is there to be used to to implement the policies of the globalist agenda, NOT to care about the repercussions!
(As evidenced by his continuing to cancel leases to drill for oil in Alaska and the gulf, as gas prices soar and diesel skyrockets and becomes scarce, threatening our entire economy!)

Joe Biden evidently wants us to believe that he’s a member of that crowd of naive individuals who believe that criminals obey the laws and that more anti-gun laws (which naturally infringe on our 2nd amendment rights), are what will solve the problem of firearms related crimes occurring in our society today. But his goal is not to reduce the volume of gun related violence, rather it is to outlaw guns and disarm the United States populace. That is not going to happen! He’ll be pouting like a deprived child when Donald Trump pulls off his Grover Cleveland in November… Read more »

The kool-aid drinking libs will not be confused with facts! I believe the top Democrats/liberals/progressives/socialist/communist knowingly use anti-gun laws to disarm the sheeple also using the criminals the refuse to prosecute or give light sentence to further justify more anti-gun laws. Biden is owned by the Chinese, Russians, and Ukrainians. If the government gets digital currency, say good buy to buying ammo, or anything they don’t approve of unless you can use barter. The ammo factories will only be selling to the government and elites(their bodyguards must be armed against the peasants)

Ope

Truth and facts to the socialist trash is very confusing and insulting. The mid-terms just can’t get here soon enough. They won’t be able to use the Covid BS and mail in voting to steal anymore elections either.

CaptainKerosene

Biden would happily kill people but his jawbones is busy lying.

Joe biden calls no one answers !!!!!!

Lee – ya missed a really BIG one: it is against the law to MURDER people and has been so in all civilizations. That virtually universal law certainly didn’t stop this killer anymore that it has all of the other killers throughout history. That is a FACT the control freaks always ignore. Remember what Archie Bunker said to Gloria when she went off on a rant about people being killed with guns – ‘would you have been happier if they had been thrown out of a window’ (not an exact quote but close enough) – dead is dead regardless of… Read more »

No law(s) past, present or future will stop a person who wants to kill people.

nrringlee

All true on the legal front. From the political front Slow Joe’s performance perfectly fits the “Lecture the Mirror” model of Progressive projection. Joe’s rant about the internet as a source of hate fueling hate groups and haters was a one sided indictment of………………………..himself. The boob in the mirror. Like Andrew Jackson before him Biden is confronted with a very unhappy and very hostile pubic on all sides. But it is his side, the Progressive New Left who are the rioters and the thugs in the streets. The escaped, or better termed released mental patient responsible for the Buffalo shooting… Read more »

When will these politicians get it right, it wasn’t the gun that committed the crime, it was the person pulling the trigger.
Don’t blame the gun, blame the operator.

Boz

As most people know, or should know, the actual purpose of so-called “gun control” has NEVER been about stopping crime, saving lives or for the children. It’s one and 0NLY purpose is to disarm law-abiding American Citizens for easier control. All other claims are fluff and misdirection as to the actual intention — disarmament.

ashort

This is more in the lines of what need to be wrote about, but what I am about to say is nothing but speculation & a conspiracy theory, that being said here goes. Is it just me, or is it that all of these shooting that has been happening over the last year or so, seem way to convenient, especially with the firearms being used. it seems that allot of the shooting, they just happen to have an AR-15, Ghost Guns, High capacity magazines, even though there is no such thing as Ghost guns, and/or high capacity magazines. that is… Read more »

These words have been spoken before but these days, no one dares to step up. It could be because we are being conned by a bunch of trigger happy goons who lust for blood, and a bunch of corrupt politicians who lust for money and power!
Our founding fathers knew what to do. They shot the MOFO’s!
Or, as the “Red Headed Firebrand” Patrick Henry opined…”Is life so dear or, peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?!”
One of these days, we will all have to make a choice! “Choose Wisely!”

Wild Bill

Yes, in the mean time prepare to participate!

Captn John

Not just gun control, Dementia Joe never knows what he is talking about unless it’s ice cream. He has but 2 functioning brain cells left, the only way he stands up

james

The idiot keeps wearing the sunglasses when speaking to family of the victims. So disrespectful. He thinks he is a movie star.

willyd

Like his out of touch at Dover Air Base last year for the Service Members who died through his FAILED AFGAHNASTAN WITHDRAWL, by looking at his watch like he had something more important and, in another place!!! DUMB AND SCUMB, NO EXCUSE!!!!!!

Montana454Casull

People kill people , guns are just a tool . Joe Biden is a tool bag . Let’s go Brandon #FJB

hippybiker

Tools are useful. I refer to Joe Biden as a “Blithering, Drooling, Idiot!”
Im glad we got that straightened out!

Wild Bill

That blithering drooling part is what makes him a valuable tool to the marxists and deep statists that run the government, first, as a puppet, and second, when he is no longer useful, and suddenly dies, FJB will take all of the blame with him. Poof the slate is clean.

JMacZ

What doesn’t Slo Joe know? That list is endless. This guy is nothing but a buffoon, aping for the leftist progs.

Interesting to note that he never went to Kenosha when that black criminal ran his vehicle over 50-55 parade participants, killing several. That was certainly a hate crime as well. But the optics were probably bad for this muddle-headed buffoon and his handlers.

nrringlee

As for Kenosha, that clown was Clown Joe’s clown.

john

Democrats continue the with same narrative with every shooting which continue to rise. Shootings always do while their party is in control of the government,
While under their controlled states and cities crime rates are the highest in the nation. Biden has no thoughts that he can muster into a complete sentence without the teleprompter. Someone else’s thoughts for the president of the United States to read. Most times Joe gets confused looking angry and lost while his handlers have the best of both worlds. A puppet that is disposable at their beck in call.

Green Mtn. Boy

One must remember the worthless braindead sock puppet if he doesn’t have a teleprompter or the easter bunny to run interference for him,he is nothing more than a bowel of pudding,his civilian disarmament have gone up in smoke. FJB/LGB

pepe

Dear president potatohead, call the FBI and ask them for the list of all crimes committed with a long gun. It should show about 60 crimes.

swmft

ten times as many arrested for having one than using one in a crime

Ope

60 ? That many ?
