President Biden’s Last-Ditch Gun Control Doozy

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- The White House experienced another case of “clean up on aisle 1600” after President Joe Biden declared unambiguously that all semiautomatic firearms have, “no redeeming social value.”

After being asked about the recent murders of innocent Americans at the hands of deranged individuals in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Chesapeake, Va., the president added, “Zero. None. Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was forced to walk back the president’s remarks with record speed.

Ban ‘Em All

President Biden’s Freudian firearm slip isn’t surprising. He frequently boasts of his record of “taking on” the gun industry before and “winning.” That’s referencing the 1994 ban on so-called assault weapons that then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) supported. In 2019, then-presidential candidate Biden was asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his true gun control intentions.

“To gun owners out there who say a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns…” Cooper began. “Bingo!” President Biden interrupted. “You’re right, if you have an assault weapon … The fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Period.”

Fast forward a couple years and the president expanded his wish list of banned firearms to include one of the most popular selling handgun calibers among law-abiding firearm owners – the 9 mm.

“The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9 mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous,” President Biden told supporters. “I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things.”

It comes as no surprise then that when asked by media following the tragic murders in Colorado and Virginia, the president vocalized his true beliefs. He wants to ban semiautomatic firearms, including America’s most popular selling centerfire rifle and most popular selling handguns. He throws them all under the umbrella of “weapons of war.”

Walk-Back Whiplash

At the earliest White House press briefing following the president’s remarks, Karine Jean-Pierre, The White House press secretary, was asked to clarify and she walked it back.

“No. He was talking about, talking about assault weapons,” Jean-Pierre said. “That’s what he was talking about when asked that question.”

There was no follow up to ask Jean-Pierre how the president differentiates between semiautomatic rifles like he wants to ban and semiautomatic pistols as he’s included before. The administration – and gun control advocates across the board – would likely be tongue-tied in their attempts to define what they mean by so-called “assault weapons,” or Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs). The truth is it’s the same one-trigger-pull, one-fire technology that’s been around for more than a century, whether a handgun, a rifle or even several varieties of hunting and recreational shotguns.

It’s the same definition trouble President Biden’s failed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) director nominee and gun control lobbyist David Chipman fumbled through during his confirmation hearing when he struggled to answer the question before finally admitting, “Senator, there’s no way I could define an assault weapon.” President Biden can’t define it, The White House can’t define it and Congressional Democrats who continue to push for stricter gun control can’t define it either.

Time Running Out

There are more than 24 million commonly-owned, lawfully-purchased MSRs in circulation today, according to NSSF firearm industry data. Law-abiding Americans own many more times that number of 9 mm handguns and according to industry data the gun-owning community has never been more diverse than it is now, with women and minorities leading the buying spree over the past few years.

President Biden can thank himself for the growing number of Americans legally buying firearms. In fact, the same number of Americans bought firearms during the first twelve-months of the Biden presidency alone than did during the first years combined of Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

With Congress returning to Washington, D.C., President Biden has upped his calls for his new “assault weapons” ban but the door is almost shut. Republicans won back control of the U.S. House of Representatives and will take the majority once the new session begins in January. U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) admitted there aren’t even enough Democratic votes in the Senate to pass an MSR ban.

Gallup reported that Americans’ support for stricter gun control has dropped nine percent since June and their support for a ban on MSRs is below the 50 percent mark for the first time ever. President Biden continues to deny reality on his gun control ambitions – whether he “misspoke” or stated his true intentions.

This guy is a drooling moron – nobody thinks he has anything of substance to say about anything. I just wish we could have someone like Jim Jordan as Speaker of the House and not that linguini spine McCarthy. I just do NOT trust him – he’s a friend of Eddie Munster Paul Ryan, he’s from California and he and Turtle Boy McConnell are pals as well.

He’s from KOmmiefornia. Nough said.

Dementia Joe is a puppet. Obama and Soros and Klaus Schwab each take a turn at his strings He can’t speak on his own w/out a promoter, or he speaks jibberish and lies. Make sure to keep Pedo Joe away from young girls, he likes to sniff and shower with them like he did his own daughter up through her teen years (per her own diary).

Dementia Joe is a frigging moron, who doesn’t know a revolver from a shotgun, nor an AR from an M4. And seeing as he is a fraud, we don’t give a rats azz what he says or signs.

I will be glad when we get a real president again

In the same speech our “president” the talking avocado said, and I’m paraphrasing “…… I don’t know why we STILL ALLOW the purchase of assault weapons.” Still allow? Since when do I need your approval to buy anything? That one sentence from him tells you everything you need to know.

Look at what’s happening in Canada right now. Don’t turn your head because it is not us. Obiden is butt buddies with this guy and they both want all your guns. I think it is Montreal that is saying, no way are we going to support your new law and if you push the issue, we will petition for us to become a country within a country. This is all a prelude to what will happen in Merica when Texas and Arizona and maybe a few other states say the same thing. I don’t think the congress will allow it.… Read more »

“This is all a prelude to what will happen in Merica when Texas and Arizona and maybe a few other states say the same thing. I don’t think the congress will allow it.” TEXAS has secession built into it’s DNA (Constitution) that it fully maintains the right to secession. But, THAT isn’t going to matter if the mainstream U.S. goes tits-up. People often forget, should SHTF, there aren’t going to be any plaintiffs and defendants, courtrooms prosecutors or juries. ALL that will be out the window. We’d be lucky to be able to define which nutbags are ANTIFA, BLM, Proud… Read more »

I’ve asked several times on this site and others if anyone knows what caused slow joe’s deep seated hatred of guns. So far, no one has come up with an answer. His hatred ‘almost’ makes a garden variety hoplophobe look sorta normal.

Dave Workman

Actually, Biden has been a gun control advocate since he arrived on Capitol Hill 50 years ago.
Thanks for reading and sharing this Ammoland report.

He’s always been a Northeast liberal elite anti-gun politician, his enthusiastic support of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban showed a pretty strong dislike of guns back then. Now he’s surrounded by fanatics and has adopted their language, but their feelings aren’t that different from his own.

Rifles . . . pistols . . . “assault weapons” . . . magazines . . . WHATEVER!

NOT ONE MORE INCH!

Which is what Creepy Joe’s handlers want. Sedition me and he can declare martial law countrywide. Why else all the woke stuff in the military? Teach them that Whitey is evil and should be destroyed, so when it comes down to the break, they all understand why they are are being ordered to round up Anglos.

When a policy will affect the ‘bottom line’ (and only then) NSSF actually starts to speak up. Otherwise it’s “In conjunction with our partners at ATF…”.

The pRESIDENT did not LIE this time! pRESIDENT buydem has always HATED Americans who own SEMI-AUTOMATIC guns. This is NOT the first rodeo that pRESIDENT Buydem WILL LOSE to the American Constitutionally ACKNOWLEDGED G-d given RIGHTS of American Citizens!!!

Pro-gunnies crow that MSRs top 24 million owned as a reason not to ban them. THAT is the WHY behind the anti-gunnies’ ban the AR fetish…because they are so plentiful in the hands of “potential” patriots to over throw tyranny. Were MSRs owned by only a few thousand citizens, they wouldn’t give a rip. Careful what position one hitches their arugment to. The “Common In Use” concept may limit citizen ownership of future new firearm developments. Had that “common use” concept been applied in the early 60s, ARs were not in common use at that time, and, therefore, we may… Read more »

I think that Donald Trump should be put in as Speaker of the House, and have Ron DeSantis run for President. You put The Donald in as Leader of the Legislative Branch, I know heads will start rolling come Jan.2, 2024. Donald Trump has the spine, the tenacity, the audacity and the stark believer in karma towards all those dumbobrats who was jerking his chain his entire presidency. I am positive that the investigation’s would start flying out of his office and deal out a big ole size10 can of Payback Time !!!!!!.
