BELLEVUE, WA – 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.”


With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms ( is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

    Dont forget the millions and millions of hammers! After all it was used to attack a Dumcrat in his own house. And of course, ban all illegals out of the country because he was from Canada. Every person must then take classes to get a permit to use a hammer and then register it!

    Since an SUV was used in Waukesha, Wisconsin to murder six victims and to injure an additional 63 victims, there should be a call to ban these weapons, and to get them off of America’s streets (and sidewalks).

    Too many families across American are bearing the burden of automobile violence.
