Biden: ‘Ban Assault Weapons, I mean It!’

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

President Joe Biden addressed Everytown for Gun Safety’s Gun Sense University on Tuesday. While you can watch the entire speech in the video embedded above, here are some of the lowlights:

On Banning ‘Assault Weapons’:

“It’s time once again to do what I did when I was a Senator: ban assault weapons! I mean it. Who in God’s name needs a magazine which can hold 200 shells? Nobody. That’s right.”

“I remember when I was campaigning, when I was a Senator, going through the wetlands of Delaware to meet all the people who were most upset with me—the fishermen and the hunters. And I came across a guy who was fishing. He said, ‘You want to take my gun?’ And I looked at him and said, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to take your gun. You’re allowed to have a gun, but I want to take away your ability to use an assault weapon…’ He said, ‘What do you mean? I need that gun.’ I said, ‘Guess what? If you need 12 to 100 bullets in a gun, in a magazine, you’re the lousiest shot I’ve ever heard.”

“I’m serious. And to his credit, he looked at me and said, ‘You have a good point.’ But think about it—they’re weapons of war.”

On the Bankrupting the Gun Industry

“By the way, this is the most important. The only industry in America that has immunity—gun manufacturers. We’ve got to end it, end it now. No, I mean it. Imagine, imagine if we gave tobacco an exception that could not be prosecuted. What would happen? We’d have thousands more people dying of cancer because of smoke inhalation.”

On Funding the “AFT” [Sic]

“It’s time to increase funding for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and explosives and other law enforcement agencies as well to solve the crimes faster. Look, unfortunately, it’s the only part of the thing I’m going to say—the Congressional Republicans oppose all of these, every one of these. Instead of trying to stop our ban on ghost gun kits that commit crimes, they’re working like hell to stop it. They want to abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and explosives, which is responsible for fighting gun crimes. You can’t be pro-law enforcement and say you are pro-law enforcement and be pro-abolishing the AFT. You can’t do it. It’s outrageous.”

Owning a Cannon During the Civil War

“I used to be a law professor. When I was no longer the Vice President, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Before that, I taught a constitutional law class and, well, talked about the Second Amendment. There’s never been a time that says you can own anything you want. You couldn’t own a cannon during the Civil War. No, I’m serious. Think about it.”

***RE: Cannon, He’s wrong, of course. It’s a lie he keeps repeating.***

Blood of Liberty

“How many heard this phrase, ‘the blood of liberty’? Give me a break. No, I mean it, seriously. And by the way, if they want to think the idea is to take on government if we get out of line, which they’re talking again about, well, guess what? They need F-15s; they don’t need a rifle. Folks, look, this is crazy what we’re talking about. Because whether we’re Democrats or Republicans, we want our families to be safe. We all want to drop them off at a house of worship, a mall, a movie theater, a school, without worrying it’s the last time I’m going to get to see them.”

    “Who needs a magazine that can hold 200 shells?”
    I think I prefer magazines that can also hold bullets and not just the cases they came in.

  • Mark June 24, 2024, 8:10 am

    Funny the Taliban didn’t have F15’s tanks etc. manly only rifles and we lost to them. Thanks to Joe they have billions in sophisticated weapons now.

  • Ben June 15, 2024, 10:38 pm

    The ONLY reason the government wants to take our guns away is they are planning to do something to us that we would shoot them for.

  • Rodney Steward June 15, 2024, 10:01 am

    Biden pushing the country one step closer to a civil war. Name one country that has had their guns taken away, that hasn’t turned into a sh*thole, does Venezuela come to mind.

  • Pop LeCorque June 15, 2024, 9:21 am

    First off, I doubt if he really remembers when he was campaigning as senator, secondly, when there are hoards of communists coming over the hill you need multiple 200 round magazines and third, where do I place my order for a 200 round AR MAG?

  • Steven V Brown June 15, 2024, 8:43 am

    The second is not about hunting, it is however about protecting us from enemies from without and WITHIN.
    Biden and the Marxist left are enemies within. The DOJ is and has been entirely Marxist and there is a current and ongoing threat of the highest level. There’s what at least a 100,000 military age me from China and other Marxist and Islamic nation hostile to us that that traitor Biden has welcomed in. Likely many more than a mare 100 thousand, a lot more. This is not because he’s and his handlers stupidGlobalism is Actually international Communism. And I don’t want what those crooks are attempting to impose on us.
    The ingredients for well armed, well trained well planned-military style insurrection is here now! Of course we need real assault rifles and like what was legal and ok with our founding fathers, cannons. Gun up!

  • Smitty June 15, 2024, 7:29 am

    Joe Biden….”liar in Chief”….

  • Walleye June 14, 2024, 4:00 pm

    FJB: “Who in God’s name needs a magazine which can hold 200 shells?”
    Me: I do, and anyone else who wants one.
    FJB: “…well, guess what? They need F-15s; they don’t need a rifle.”
    Me: The fact you are considering using armed F-15s on private citizens is exactly why I need one.

  • Will June 14, 2024, 3:58 pm

    All I want to know is, where can I get a few of those “200 round magazines”???
    Although, in 7.62mm that’s not exactly going to be shoulder fired…
    I guess I could get a belt-fed upper… Maby with one of those 1000 round backpacks.
    On the more serious side, out of combat, drum mags are little more than range toys… And over priced ones at that.
    I bought a 72 round drum for my AK, & it’s a royal pain… Used it once & tossed it in my ‘whatever’ box.
    The drum cost me around $100… 2 40 round mags cost me $30, and they can be speed loaded with the same rig I use for 20’s & 30’s…
    A few seconds to drop & reload beats the hell out of a half dozen FTL’s & jams…

    “ Biden is handled by communists , I mean it . “

  • D.J. June 14, 2024, 2:15 pm

    I recall seeing a bumper sticker once that stated ,
    “ An armed person is a citizen , a disarmed person is a subject . “

  • Ahnold Swartzenegro June 14, 2024, 12:27 pm

    A first-year law student knows the depth’s of Biden’s lies. He was a law professor? Biden graduated at the bottom of a third-rate law college! He has a long career of foot-in-mouth disease, and that was before he was senile! Obama once confided to an aid “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” (!) He has been wrong on every singe Foreign Policy issue his entire career as a Senator and VP; as well as President now! The single most useless piece of protoplasm that ever walked the earth!

  • Jim c. June 14, 2024, 12:26 pm

    Joe Biden…the man, the myth, the idiot.

  • Hondo June 14, 2024, 12:09 pm

    Biden isn’t running anything, this dementia ridden pedophile can’t even get through the day without shitting himself, his handlers on the other hand are the real threat.

  • Beckaroo June 14, 2024, 12:07 pm

    “It’s time once again to do what I did when I was a Senator: ban assault weapons! I mean it. Who in God’s name needs a magazine which can hold 200 shells? Nobody. That’s right.”. – Joe Biden. They should have also included, after that gun ban had expired, when Biden admitted that it didn’t have any effects on violent crime. Or that Biden wasn’t a professional for years teaching constitutional law, he was a “professor in practice” who occasionally taught a class over the course of two years. His lies are his life and his life is lies.

  • R Hays June 14, 2024, 11:51 am

    Couldn’t watch the video, the sound of his voice makes me sick.

  • Bumper June 14, 2024, 10:25 am

    Most troubling about the congenital liar’s mumblings is that the so called “free press” twiddles its thumbs. I feel that our United States of America will enter a designed and calculated dark period unless the “free press” is completely exposed for what it is……a weaponized agency of the demoRAT party. Far too many regard the “press” as truthful when I believe the reverse to be true.
    This latest line of lies sounds party-line generated, wondering if the mumbling liar can so much as tie his shoes. This leftist saber rattling must be designed to increase their cash flow, to stir the anti-Second Amendment sheeple into shoveling more money into a hopeless hole.

  • Zed Noone June 14, 2024, 10:00 am

    Attention Guns America staff! 💥 Important incoming NEW DATA!
    Please give this your full attention:
    All of the Left’s base assumptions are patently false! The Left has long held that “if guns are taken, then the murders that WOULD HAVE been committed with those guns, will not occur”. This is proven to be profoundly false by the events following the 1997 ban on firearms in the UK and Australia! In the years following the ban, the Murder Rate didn’t drop!!!
    What did drop was the fake statistic ‘gun deaths’ which dropped immediately to near zero. Duh! No guns, no gun deaths! This is a classic mis-direction that is not being called out! If the removal of guns stopped murder, then there would be a drop in the Murder Rate of the same number as the claimed reduction in ‘gun deaths’. There was no precipitous drop in the Murder Rate after the gun bans. In fact by 2002 both Countries saw more murders than before the gun ban, plus all violent crime numbers rose dramatically.
    What happened is when the killers could not get a gun, they killed with some other object, however these victims are just as dead as if they were shot to death. To the Left they are worthless however Dead is dead, no matter how you got there. If no lives are saved, then the promised ‘Safety Dividend’ is a big myth and a false assumption. I might also point out that the statistics are UK and Australian Government Stats that are easily checked, but more importantly, this was a double real-world test which is the best test of all; it is not a Survey, Opinion, Study, White paper or pronouncement by a think-tank. This is the hardest proof Standard that there is proving that an Anti-gun position is based on nothing but emotion and Politics. In addition, committing Mass Murder is little hampered by an absence of guns: 6 people were killed in an Australian Shopping Mall recently by a guy with a knife. Here at home the Waukesha Christmas Parade Massacre comes to mind.
    In conclusion: please help get this information out to all supporters of the 2nd A, and especially elected GOP Office Holders, pundits and podcasters. I have found that it is very difficult to get the attention of the NRA, GOA and NAGR, so please if you are able to help let’s make this go VIRAL!

    Gosh I hate politicians. Fact check: “guns kill more children than Cancer and car accidents combined!”

    True or false: FALSE FALSE FALSE

    Gun deaths (INCLUDING suicide) below age 18 was 2,590 in 2021 (from CDC website).

    Cancer deaths under 18 was 1,722 in 2021. Vehicle deaths age 14 & under was 1,184…. 1722 + 1184 = 2,906

    For those, like Biden, who struggle with math… 2,906 > 2,590. And that’s not even counting car accident fatalities of 15, 16 or 17 year olds, because most studies on car accidents consider children age 14 and under. How many more do you think that is!?

    Gosh I hate politics. Bunch of liars lying to get elected, so they can lie about how great they’re doing and then lie about how much they care about us.

  • Frank June 14, 2024, 9:11 am

    It’s high time that we bring back the gallows for traitors to the Constitution… We’re gonna need a lot of wood, nails, and rope.

    • Peter July 5, 2024, 8:23 pm

      I prefer the guillotine although some prefer burning at the stake.
      I guess a hot stake is better than a cold chop.

  • Chuck Matson June 14, 2024, 8:51 am

    FJB! Old POS crook!

  • bruce pogson June 14, 2024, 8:51 am

    Joe’s sick in the head and needs to be in a home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jake June 14, 2024, 8:39 am

    He said only the gun industry has immunity which is ridiculous. How about all those liars who made lousy “vaccines” which this fool would have been happy to force everyone to take against their will at gunpoint? The Founding Fathers declared the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed because they knew some day an oppressive out of control government would need to be confronted by the everyday citizens. We pray that day never comes.
    It is also beyond interesting that US Code requires members of the “militia” when called upon to show up with their own firearm in a current military caliber. I don’t recall our military going into battle with a single shot .410 or .22’s.

  • Butch Walters June 14, 2024, 8:39 am

    Biden is by far the best gun salesman this country ever had. How about considering people control before you try to deny law abiding good people something that they enjoy? Ever thought of that? He thinks he’s hurting the firearms industry when in fact he’s helping to sell more guns than Obama did. But don’t expect common sense from a person with dementia. I know because my Father who just passed had it. How many people notice how this guy is more confused every time he talks? I’m not making fun of that because like I said I just dealt with it with my Dad but should this guy be running a country? Then again maybe it’s better we could get even worse replacing him. I have to say that not one of my rifles ever snuck outside in the middle of the night and committed a crime and hurried back home to the safe unbeknownst. Mine are well behaved firearms. Joe, people control!! That’s something you never talk about. Then again your own son would be one of your main subjects of conversation so maybe best to go after law abiding citizens who aren’t related to you.

    “Who in God’s name needs a magazine which can hold 200 shells?” Why does the 2nd A issue always devolve into a “need” for those on the left ? Are there any other human or constitutional rights for which the “need” for it would be appropriate ? Why do you “need” a right to be free to share your veiws on political or anyother issue ? Why do you “need” a right to be secure in your documents ? Why do you “need” a right to worship in a church or way in which you chose ? Why do you “need” a right to not be compelled to incriminate yourself ? Don’t let these disingenuine windbags do this ! Call them on it !

  • Dave June 14, 2024, 8:00 am

    Sounds like all women in the audience. Just an observation.

  • Bob June 14, 2024, 7:10 am

    It is called people control, no guns
    no people problems with the intended third world actions the people will be living under!

  • Kane June 13, 2024, 11:23 am

    So the fake POTUS (genuine POS) fails to point out is that the “AWB” that he is stumping his hobled campaign on has an more involved history than he wants to recall. As a Senator, Biden’s staff drafted the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (“the crime bill”) that contained the Provision under Title XI the “Federal Assault Weapons Ban” which had a 10 year sunset provision that ended in a campaign cycle. The fake POTUS does NOT want to recall the once celebrated crime bill that his staff drafted for Clinton that is now considered a “racist” policy. The Demsheviks now want White Male, Heterosexual, Conservative, Christians to be the exclusive target of the federal government, the new ‘enemy within.’

    After the votes in the most recent presidetial elections were tallied from a handful of states in a handful of counties during the wee hours on election night, the fake POTUS declared “America is back.” Among the worst moves in US history, reversing the efforts of generations of solid diplomac, this administration has undone the efforts to keep China and Russia from becoming staunch al;liies. Reversing the efforts that go back to the regional stabilizing since the Cuban missile crisis, this administration now has undone JFK’s greatest legacy.

    Bo Biden was the CIA heir presumptive until his young death and all that was left in the party was this greedy, perverted old fool.

    Now tell what I got wrong if you can.
