BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)-The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said the Biden White House’s call for a ban on so-called “assault weapons” in response to the murder of three University of Virginia students in which a handgun was used is “a dishonest exploitation of a tragedy in a deplorable effort to advance Joe Biden’s gun ban agenda.”

“This isn’t a case of Joe Biden making a typical gaffe,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This was a deliberate attempt by the administration to advance a cause to which Biden has been committed since he arrived in Washington 50 years ago.

“Joe Biden often doesn’t even know what state or country he’s in,” Gottlieb added, “but he knows exactly what he’s doing whenever an opportunity to push gun control comes along. And he is constantly disingenuous about it. Even the anti-gun-rights Washington Post has called Biden out for lying about guns by giving him multiple Pinocchio awards.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre issued a statement in which she blatantly politicized the triple slaying that took the lives of Devin Chandler, D’Sean Perry and Lavel Davis, Jr.

“Too many families across America are bearing the awful burden of gun violence,” the statement said. “Earlier this year, President Biden signed the most significant gun safety law in nearly three decades, in addition to taking other historic actions. But we must do more. We need to enact an assault weapons ban to get weapons of war off America’s streets. House Democrats acted, and the Senate should follow.”

“This horrible crime had absolutely nothing to do with so-called ‘assault weapons,’ and the White House knows it,” Gottlieb said. “The statement, which the president had to have approved, amounts to a crass exploitation of a tragedy in a deplorable effort to advance Joe Biden’s gun ban agenda. He has fully embraced the despicable tactic of never letting a crisis go to waste, no matter how awful the situation.

“I cannot imagine, or maybe I just don’t want to, the kind of thought process that compels Biden or any other gun grabber to be so callous,” he stated. “It’s almost like a Freudian reflex for the Biden bunch to call for an ‘assault weapons’ ban regardless of the actual facts. Joe Biden has a one-track mind when it comes to guns, and he’s been off the rails for years.”

“A president that constantly lies about guns only further divides our nation,” Gottlieb said, “and severely diminishes the chances of actually solving the problem of violent crime.”

This clown is the most useless POS in this country.

There won’t be a knock at the door during daylight hours and “they” will not stand outside waiting for you to answer. If you are in doubt, if you don’t already have, get a dog. Feed and love it well and when his/her ears, nose and eyes alert you will at least have ample warning IF you are truly prepared. Stay frosty!

Grunt … More than one and large , their land mines are only a minor inconvenience .

Biden the parrot….

Deplorable Bill

1: There is no such thing as “gun” violence. People commit violence not machinery. 2: No AR-15 was used in the above murders. The above murders were committed with a hand gun. 3: Biden is a liar, he is also corrupt and GODless and he always has been. What he said was not a “gaff” nor an accident, it was calculated for effect. 4: Propaganda is used by evil men, countries and news outlets. The terms; gun violence and assault rifles are propaganda and word games designed to confuse the innocent and lie about the truth. Satan, Hitler, Stalin, Mao,… Read more »

I’ve been reading about gun control for over forty years, probably fifty. Do not think for one minute that this is about (so-called) “assault weapons” THEY want all of our guns, our as in “We the People.”
THEY have contemplated banning handguns and know that that will not pass, but if you can get a “ban” on paper all THEY have to do is make the list longer.
And for you hunters and shotgunners remember this, Senator Feinstein’s definition of semi-automatic was worded so that it could include any double barrel shotgun with a single trigger.

Ken – I have been studying the issue for over fifty years and their strategery has essentially not changed. What too many don’t understand is that they don’t really need to take all of our weapons. They just have to take enough that they can overwhelm the remainder with brute force. Remember they are more than willing to sacrifice a certain percentage of their minions as cannon fodder. They can then use them as examples for propaganda purposes. It WILL get very nasty both physically as well as via the ‘media’. They will act when they calculate that the price… Read more »

Does anybody really believe that an ignorant liberal that hates firearms as much as this moron is only referring to the nations AR’s and AK’s? An assault weapons designation requires a selector switch with a fully automatic option. And if the “mighty” ATF wasn’t worthless they would point that out to this fat head!

Should the illegitimate resident of the White House or the likewise fraudulently installed Congress critters attempt to ban personal defensive rifles, I suspect millions will add selector switches to make them true assault rifles. Make a man a felon and he might just embrace it, especially when the gov does so illegally.

You have fallen into the gun-banner’s trap and confused the nebulous “assault weapon” with the full-auto capable “assault rifle.” This is an important distinction that must be maintained.

In 2020 they stole the presidency and nothing was done, in 2022 they hijacked the entire elections system in key states. Nothing will be done. Why would they not come for the firearms now? Short answer is that they will and soon. I am wondering how many will get up off of the couch and use that AR as it supposed to be used.

Oldman

If they try it now, not enough patriots will get off the couch! They want to try and wait til the end of the cycle we are now in because they are hoping it will be different….Right!

Our Legacy III

I’m already sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to get off of the couch. I’m sure many of us are also! Idk about you but I feel like the Biden administration is purposely trying to back the lion into a corner, knowing the lion will out power him. A civil war is what he wants.

Arm up and carry on

Four Idaho college students were killed with an edged weapon. When is Biden’s announcement on knife violence and banning assault knives?

Our Legacy III

That dumbass will try ban bayonets

Yehuda Remer at The PewPewJew.com offers a Tee that says, “Citizens with ARs do not climb into cattle cars.”

Deplorable Bill

Waiting for approval as of 1531, 11/15/22.

If you’ve been listening, biden considers 9mm handguns to be “military type assault weapons.” I don’t know what type of handgun was used in VA, but 9mm is most common. So biden’s call is not so dishonest in terms of calling for “assault weapon” ban. It is hypocritical, evil, and pretty much every other negative adjective you can find – but not dishonest in the manner you are referring to. It is dishonest in that he is using his own new definition of “assault weapons” which is not how the term is understood by even most antis. It is honest… Read more »
