Biden Calls on Congress to Ban ‘Assault Weapons,’ Criminalize Private Transfers

(Photo: Facebook/Biden)

Joe Biden called on Congress Sunday to overhaul the nation’s gun laws.

Citing the Parkland school shooting that happened three years ago to the day, on Feb. 14, 2018, the president said in a statement that his administration will “not wait for the next mass shooting” but will instead “take action” to “end our epidemic of gun violence.”  

Biden, specifically, wants lawmakers to criminalize private transfers, ban many semi-automatic firearms and accessories in common use and repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which protects the gun industry from being held liable for the criminal misuse of firearms. 

“Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” said Biden.  

Biden’s announcement comes on the heels of a meeting he had with gun-control advocates at the White House last week.  Unsurprisingly, those same individuals applauded his policy recommendations.  

“We look forward to the vital measures President Biden laid out being introduced and debated in Congress, starting with requiring background checks on all gun sales,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety in a press release.  “In the meantime, we anticipate President Biden will continue to lead on this issue with swift executive action to repair our background check system, as well as investments in community-based efforts to address skyrocketing rates of city gun violence.”

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, added, “These recommendations are a welcome change from the inaction of the Trump administration over the past four years. Families across the country impacted by gun violence –– including the Parkland victims and survivors –– have been waiting for this day for far too long.”

NRA-ILA: Biden Plots Sneak Attack Against U.S. Firearms Industry

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association, believes Biden’s mandate for gun control is deeply misguided.  

“President Joe Biden’s call for his gun control agenda is not working to address the shared American goal of reducing criminal misuse of firearms,” NSSF said in a press release.  

“His demand that Congress ban the modern sporting rifle (MSR), which he knowingly mislabels an ‘assault rifle’ and ‘weapon of war,’ denies the reality that more murders are committed with knives, fists and clubs than all rifles combined,” it continued.  

Instead of restricting the 2A rights of law-abiding citizens, NSSF champions what it calls “Real Solutions” to reduce gun-related violence. Those efforts include:

  • Partnering with 15,000 law enforcement agencies to distribute 40 million firearm safety kits, including locking devices, for safe firearm storage through Project ChildSafe®.
  • Fixing the FBI’s background check system by changing the law in 16 states and in Congress to increase reporting of disqualifying adjudicated mental health records, resulting in a 266 percent increase.
  • Partnering with the ATF to prevent illegal firearm straw purchases and warning it is a crime punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
  • Improving security at firearm retailers, with ATF, to deter criminals from stealing firearms.
  • Matching ATF reward offers up to $5,000 to bring criminals to justice that steal firearms.
  • Preventing firearm suicides with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Department of Veterans Affairs.

Apart from what the president has called for, federal lawmakers have recently introduced a variety of bills that would significantly restrict one’s right to keep and bear arms, including national licensing and registration legislation and punitive storage legislation.

Given this apparent appetite for changing the 2A, along with the fact that Democrats control both chambers of Congress, one can rest assured Biden’s call to action will not fall on deaf ears.

    Why do they keep say gun epidemic? To be a epidemic it must involve 7% of the population but gun deaths only involve 0.00007381% of the population, that’s a far cry from 7%

    Biden can’t even take questions from reporters without previously being told what those questions are in advance. Biden reads what is provided to him, does his best to act like he knows believes and somewhat understands what the teleprompter says. Then that’s it , the guy rolls back to bed of hidden away to keep from embarrassing himself and showing the world how bad he mentally really is. To renew a gun permit currently takes months, gun sales up the the clouds, ammo shortages absolutely frustrating. So who are all these new people joining the gun community? Where is the outrage. Or are dems even dumber then they are known to already be? Could these confused new gun owners still be supporting policies that restrict and completely uproot America’s best law abiding citizens. Been around a while, and I shake my head at how so many can remain apart of the heard heading us to slaughter. Get involved, try your best to inform every day Americans how absurd this administration is. While at it, mention the mess at the border after 4 years of cooperation from Mexico.

  • Erwin Lang February 23, 2021, 1:37 pm

    If this is allowed it would be the first step towards total gun control. The first step socialistic communism always takes is to start disarming its citizens. Check your history folks. This isn’t about safety.

    Bidon is a jackass him and his kid belong in jail we don’t need more gun laws people need to enforce the laws we have. Bidon is so out of touch he does not even know what an Assault weapon is

  • Nicholas February 22, 2021, 5:16 pm

    I’ve made several comments here on the actual meaning of the 2nd amendment. Let me put it this way so that maybe some will begin to understand.
    The Bill of Rights does not create, establish, nor protect any rights. It was added to warn “public officials” that the original Constitution provides for these authorities by implication set down by enumerating powers and restrictions on the government.
    I realize that for the vast majority, performing any act that might require some training and the reduction of time in front of the TV and the beer bottle is repugnant, but you have no rights you are not willing to defend in accordance with the law as it is enumerated.
    –“[T]he term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. “A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline.” And further, that ordinarily, when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.”–
    I have no doubt at this time in my life, and after having written several articles on the subject, and speaking to numerous people throughout the pro-2nd community that the points of law in the Constitution are lost through ignorance, ambivalence, illiteracy, and an obvious desire to avoid any form of involvement that might cause an inconvenience or risk.
    I pray to God that I may never again meet those who sit on the board of the NRA, GOA, and other so-called pro-2nd groups. They sold out the nation when they had ample time to make the proper legal arguments, and they are selling out the nation now, when it is clear that there are those in government who wish to bring us under the authority of despots and entities that will take everything from us, including our dignity.

    • William Myers February 23, 2021, 12:47 am

      This is not about gun control. This is about gnawing at the second amendment, just to see what they can get away with doing. stand up America ! Stand up to protect our Constitution ! Now is the time.

      • Nicholas February 23, 2021, 11:09 am

        I’m not sure what you took from my comment, but the point was to articulate the fact that the so-called pro-2nd community, and the vast majority of American’s do not understand our Constitution.
        The Framers gave us a means of standing up for the Constitution, but the body of the People want nothing to do with that duty.
        The mindset of going to court and using arguments contrary to the principles of the Constitution, and then expecting the courts to rule in your favor is ludicrous.
        “They” are gnawing at the 2nd because people do not understand that it is the original Constitution that provides the proper protection. The 2nd simply points to those protections. If the people do not want to understand this fact in law, then they will eventually lose all their rights.

    • David Baker February 24, 2021, 8:49 pm

      Amen brother, you are so right we need everyone to become a Political Influencer; things to keep in mind 1) let your state level representatives know you by name, become a trusted educational resource on gun issues. 2) Avoid confrontational Politics. 3) Make a list of Politicians who have the power to affect your gun rights, which typically state level legislators. 4) begin by calling or emailing their office requesting in-person meeting or video conference or phone call.; and when you talk to them do your best to present your views on the 2A in a way that appeals to their values, and be prepared to make a strong argument that resonates with their values; remember don’t be an ass it’s not about wining the argument but instead its about building a relationship where you become the influencer. 5) After your meeting Thank them for their time and make sure you send a follow up email again thanking them for taking the time to speak with you; its a good idea to communicate with them a several times a year so that you build that relationship. 6) You can be their resource on gun related issues, and provide them with good talking points for them to use on defending the issue or making the argument. 7) Anytime there is a gun related bill call and write your legislator to ask for action; KEEP IT BRIEF for example “Mr. or Mrs blank I’m asking you to vote no on the House File “blank”or AB 2847” don’t waste their time writing some novel that they will never read, also keep in mind its most likely going to be read from one of their aides, so be as nice as possible because they are the gatekeepers you don’t want to be labeled as some Gun Nut Job! 8) Go to the Town Hall Meetings because you can bet your a$$ the opposition will be there, because they figured out that this is the way to get their views heard and put into law; Political Battles go to those who show up! Don’t be the guy that’s thinks I don’t need to worry or get involved because the NRA has got this.. Trust me by the time they come into the picture its already law.

    The 0bama-Harris-Biden Administration was walked on the Constitution daily since assuming the throne. This is no surprise. I hope it does not end well for them. The have a different definition of ‘common sense’ than do most of us here. Of course, if the country had any common sense they wouldn’t be in office now

  • Come on Justice Roberts... February 22, 2021, 12:19 pm

    It’s a shame that the Supreme Court declined to take up any of the cases that might have put many of these legislative canards in much harder position to pass. Perhaps they will do the right thing now, although I’m not holding my breath. Putting some of these stupid ideas to rest forever would really be helpful. Want a ban? How about a ban on the use of the terms “assault weapon” and “high capacity magazine.” I know, running up on 1A there, but still. The use of deliberately misleading terms to attack constitutional rights ought to have some penalty.

Then Biden wants to send out a 1.9t dollar stimulus package out but dosnt make sense when he is sending almost 3/4 of the money over seas where people can get up to 60k from the stimulus. I really wish I didn’t bring a child into this world with a jack ass for a present and to be 100 present right know with everyone Joe Biden is just a pawn in a bigger game that he has no control over at all he is just there for the face if the white house and for his signature he is just a dumb ass puppet that only cares to fi his pocket and the Congress’s pockets.this is just fucking pathetic.

  • Stephen February 21, 2021, 6:21 pm

    Uhhh… What the hell is the definition of assault rifle anyway? An assault rifle is number 1, fully automatic, or can be by the flick of a switch. Also 3round and single shot. These variants are military only and called an M-16. They can be purchased but the stamp fee that has to be paid to ATF is out of site. The weapons purchased at the local gun shop are semi automatic only! That means for when the trigger is depressed, one round will be expended. They may look alike but are very different internally. So they try to use this on the uneducated public and get away with it…

  • Gideon Rockwell February 21, 2021, 1:24 pm

    The term assault weapon is a creation of the Democrat Crime Organization and their minions in the Lame Stream Media Propaganda Politburo. Every firearm began life as a military arm. They have the ruggedness and reliability sportsmen and Everyday Carriers require of their arms. The AR and AK platforms are just the natural progression in modern sporting and defensive arms evolution. The Founders all stated the Bill of Rights is a document listing GOD Given Rights no person shall tamper with or infringe upon. Geo. Washington himself said firearms in the hands of the citizenry are the teeth of Liberty. They all said every citizen should be armed and practice regularly with their weapons. By this token all legislation and rulings hindering us from by any weapon we choose is illegal and very likely treasonous. Why treasonous??? Because all of the Founders stated over and over the armed citizenry are the Nation’s last line of defense. So Amendment 2 has nothing to do with weekend plinking, competition shooting or hunting. It is all about defense of hearth, home, family, friends and the nation as a whole.

  • Ti February 20, 2021, 4:40 pm

    I’ve read the comments. All are very interesting. Not too many trolls either.

    ” Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” we all know the quote from Chinese Communist Leader Mao Zedung.

    The founding fathers had great forethought when crafting the US Constitution.

    I believe that calling gun control a socialist/ communist construct is probably giving communism too much credit. What we are talking about is taking absolute power away from an elite class that wishes to control everything US citizens do. They do this with reigns of the government.

    More of chairman Mao’s speech at the sixth Plenary Session of the CPC’s sixth Central Committee, 6 November 1938:

    “Communists do not fight for personal military power, (They must in no circumstances do that,….), but they must fight for military power for the Party, for military power for the people. ….. Where there is naivete on the question of military power, nothing whatsoever can be achieved.”

    He continues and I WANT TO EMPHASISE THIS:

    “It is very difficult for the labouring people, who have been deceived and intimidated by the reactionary ruling classes for thousands of years, to awaken to the importance of having guns in their own hands.

    …..”Experience in the class struggle in the era of imperialism teaches us that it is only by the power of the gun that the working class and labouring masses can defeat the armed bourgeoisie and landlords; in this sense we may say that only with guns can the whole world be transformed.”

    So the democrats and gun control freaks think we are going to give ’em up? NO WAY!! To hell with anyone who wants to abolish the 2nd amendment!

  • Mr. J February 20, 2021, 1:20 am

    Truth: More than 80 percent of gun crime is committed by people who have a past history of violent criminal offenses. Of which a great many of them have received minimal sentences, or no jail time at all, or plead out to a lesser offense, or have been granted early release, or charges were dropped or thrown out by a soft judge or weak prosecutor.

    What will actually do some GOOD is NOT to pass another gun law, but instead, to properly enforce the gun laws we already have on the books.

    Criminals should serve time for violent crimes. That should be mandatory. Crimes of violence should not be eligible for plea bargaining and reduction to lesser offenses. Minimum mandatory sentences should be required for all violent crimes. And for crimes committed with a weapon, the 5-10-25-life rules should be applied and enforced.

    Do that and gun crime will taper off dramatically over the next few years.

    MOST interestingly, when you break down the FBI’s gun crime statistics by racial involvement, you soon realize that gun crime perpetrated by white people is by far the most rare type of gun crime. In fact, it’s more than 10 times more likely that a black man will commit a gun related crime against a white victim than a white offender will commit a gun related crime against a black victim.

    While the TOTAL numbers of white-on-white crime and black-on-black crime are similar, consider that blacks make up just 11 percent of the population. And with whites now numbering about 50-ish percent of the population, that still tells you that blacks are four or five times more likely to commit violent crimes than whites.

    “Molan Labe” meaning “Come and Get Them “, spoken by Spartan King Leonidas – Battle of Thebes Greece spoken to the one million person Persian army when ordered to throw down their Spartan swords.
    The Meaning—-“COME AND GET THEM” is similar to Charleston Hesston when he said “From my COLD DEAD HANDS” although Molan Labe is a bit more dramatic.

  • JR February 19, 2021, 4:44 pm

    Anyone with even a little understanding of different rifle platforms and ammunition options knows that the AR-15 chambered in its most popular .223 variant packs a pretty mild recoil compared to similarly-powerful long guns. It is not a machine gun as you need to pull the trigger for each shot just like most semi automatic rifles. Most hand guns and rifles sold today are semi automatic so this is a path you do not want to take because where do you stop? The AR-15 sold to the public is not an assault rifle! It was first made by Armalite Rifle which is where the AR abbreviation came from. That’s precisely why it is so popular among shooters using the rifle for everything from law enforcement to home defense to sport— it’s not particularly loud, scary or difficult to shoot. It is worth noting that there are no “weapons of war” or “assault weapons” available to normal Americans. No military in existence uses AR-15 rifles or other semi-automatic counterparts, instead using fully automatic weapons like the M-16 and M-4 carbine in the United States, the Type 95 Automatic Rifle in China, and the AK-74 assault rifle in Russia. Automatic weapons have not been available for purchase in the United States since the government made them illegal in 1986.
    We don’t need a new gun ban. We need a ban on the political correctness dulling our collective ability to better recognize the people not worthy of society’s trust. And we need to do away with gun free zones. Any chance at all that a concealed carrier may have the opportunity to dispatch one of these bastards to hell before he racks up a high innocent body count sounds more sensible to me than does thinking that murderers obey gun laws.
    It’s liberal ignorance and stupidity that’s bringing on all this bloodshed, not AR-15s. Blame the ones who actually do stuff instead of trying to blame everyone else. It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger.

Now let’s NOT forget the only protection you have from all those aforementioned people are the Guns they want to take from you. Basically they are making you a victim of crime. They are opening the doors for criminals while NOT allowing you to protect yourself or family. Now you think about all of that and then make your choice. Do I become a victim or a criminal?

    When the time comes everyone will have to pick a side, there is no if’s or but’s about that. More evidence keeps coming out that is solid voter fraud but the state and federal governments refuse to investigate it. Arizona state house is trying to investigate their presidential election but the local county government is fighting them which in itself has no merits for the county to take that position. Two surveillance videos showing voter dumps for Biden and the date and time stamps match the voter record time stamps for this activity but still no investigation. Yes we all will have to make a decision because our government officials in Washington D.C. and their oligarch friends and accomplices in the alphabet federal agencies have no fear of the law anymore and shall do what they please. It is in your face brazen behavior showing the corruption on both sides of the aisle and within agencies of our federal government. We literally have a four tiered judicial system now, with the real law only being applied towards us the peasants. There is a reason the National Guard is in D.C. around the capital with the fence they installed. They are going to do something that is totally unconstitutional and unlawful in our eyes and they are scared of our actions. Desperate crooks do desperate things and it has always been that way from a law enforcement perspective. When the lawyer for the FBI falsified a document to get a FISA warrant approved by a judge and was given probation and community service that was a huge sign of the corruption. For those of us that have been in law enforcement we know what the proper outcome should have been. He should have been fired immediately, charged with a felony, sent to prison and to literally have the jail house dropped on him for his actions. Then the big civil suit for violating someones civil rights and the criminal charge for a federal civil rights violation. This attorneys actions were right out of the democratic parties anti civil rights play book when they controlled the south and law enforcement arrested and prosecuted innocent Black men. There is zero tolerance and I mean zero tolerance for this behavior in law enforcement, the real ACLU should have been screaming bloody murder for his actions. For those of us who upheld the law and the constitution the behavior of the top law enforcement agency in our country is totally disgusting and they cannot police their own ranks. So as I stated “A side will have to be picked and riding the fence will not work because all that does is give you sore genitalia.”

  • Russ February 19, 2021, 2:08 pm

    This buffoon creepy Joe is so typical of these liberal scumbags. Instead of going after criminals and imposing long sentences on criminals with no plea bargaining, and increase penalties for every additional arrest for those who use guns illegally he goes after law abiding citizens. He does it because he knows the vast majority of scumbag criminals using guns illegally are democrats. Cant vote easily in jail or prison or when your right to vote has been rescinded due to felony convictions. Pathetic.

    With such American idols as Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Green, and now Joey B all crying for action it’s easy to predict that law abiding Americans – by the millions – will be lining up to register or turn in their guns. Notwithstanding the fact that I’m still looking for this ‘systemic gun violence’ they keep jawing about.

    The last time I looked, we can take a map of the US and highlight the areas where the vast majority of ‘gun violence’ occurs. Then overlay it with a map of the US cities. And we’ll see an almost perfect 1:1 correspondence of ‘gun violence’ occurring in the cities ruled by Democrats. Deduct the cities, and ‘gun violence’ is hard to find across the bulk of America.

    Absent the NFA all the arguments on barrel length and the strange distinctions of pistols and rifles would become legally settled. The rates of fire and magazines questions et cetera would be settled. Silly accessories such as “bump stocks” would be render irrelevant.

    Instead we have silly laws. The vague term “weapons of war” is cynically being used to manipulate public opinion ignoring the fact that conventions such as the Hague and Geneva Conventions placed some limits on weaponry that is NOT placed on federal and local law enforcement agencies.

  • SELDEN DENTON February 19, 2021, 10:24 am

    Let’s see. Sue the gun manufacturers if a gun is used in a crime. So if a legally sold S&W is used in a crime, S&W can be sued. By that logic, if the guy makes his getaway in a Ford, Ford Motor Company can also be sued. If he’s wearing Levi jeans, Levi Strauss can be sued. If he’s smoking a Marlboro cigarette, Marlboro can be sued.
    You get the picture. I’m sure the lawyers are loving this.

    • Robert Evans February 19, 2021, 3:11 pm

  • Jack Spire February 19, 2021, 10:09 am

    Be careful in your thinking as to how the govt comes for your guns….First will come the IRS tax bill for each registerd firearm you have on the books with your state and federal agencies. You can say you sold them years ago, but unless you can show proof….just like a vehicle tax bill, you will continue to get billed.

    2nd step is for those that don’t pay their tax bill….a lien will be placed on your property, until finally it is auctioned off….some of us will fight, hopefully most don’t cave to the pressure of seeing this.

    The avenue they use will be that of owed taxes. these actions will be shielded by the media….small numbers at first. Some states will also tax firearms yearly just like personal property…local govt will get in the mix, just as they have gotten into taxing tobacco sales, they use the its bad for you routine to say they are taxing it from existence….but again another profit avenue from taxes to spend more.

    Lord, I hope I’m wrong, but I think the way of sending police or military gets to much attention, as it has happened in the past….most of which people have forgotten.

    Good luck, and God save VA, and God save America

  • concerned February 19, 2021, 9:35 am

    OK everyone. Think about this. While most constitutional scholars will agree that the second amendment has nothing to do with recreational or subsistence hunting, is it smart to storm a state or federal facility with the very item they want to legislate out of existence over election false claims and refusal to believe in science?

    People are being used for financial gain and when you watch, stream or use anything that is ad driven, you line their pockets. OAN, Newsmax and Fox are all battling for views and the more crazy it gets, the more revenue it drives. Social media platforms are the same.

    I’m a firearms lover with lots of them and watching ignorance on live TV these days is painful. Reading it here is painful. It’s also dangerous. The ability to talk crap and reinforce falsehoods repeatedly has a cost. It has cost lives and millions of dollars in destruction in DC and in other places around the country.

    Some elected officials that many see as shining lights of freedom only truly pander for votes and money and are truly out of touch with those they represent. Cancun anyone? Not just one side but both sides are guilty of such behavior.

    Until we look to ourselves to fix this with rhetoric and actions that promote understanding and bridge divides, this will only get worse. Firearms used to be a part of every household and there were certain things understood about them and their use. Now that has changed. It’s harming us collective firearm owners because of the public actions of a few.

    I understand what I’m writing will bring out intense vitriol from those that generally like to post things like “shoot them”, “hang them” or” round them up”, but it’s clear that such destructive behavior doesn’t fix a problem. Expecting a different result when you take the same action is truly insanity.

    Step up and act like a responsible person and not an ignorant clown that people would fear because you have a weapon.

    Why is this happening? Because they, your elected servants, are well aware that the American people are incredibly ignorant of this form of government. “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” – Thomas Jefferson
    For several years now, I’ve been attempting to educate the pro-2nd community on the proper lawful stance, which the Miller court ruled on. I’m not the only one. The problem is that the community doesn’t know, doesn’t understand, and refuses to learn what it doesn’t know.
    There are 27 words in the 2nd amendment. The “obvious purpose”, the court ruled is “to assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of [Militia]”.
    Once you convince someone of the proper interpretation, they shrink away when they find out that they would actually have to participate in an organized, armed, and disciplined militia a minimum of 4 times a year, and act in any function for which they might be called into service by the Commander of the County.
    Militia was never voluntary. It operated according to colonial statutes, and then the consolidated statutes made uniform by congress. No matter how much information you give to those who claim to be supporters of the RKBA, and there is plenty – see Dr. Edwin Vieira, they will defer to the individual rights theory because it requires nothing but to complain. Go through the comments.
    Those who think they support the RKBA are also locked in by attorney’s who couldn’t give a rats behind about actually winning and cancelling all gun control. There’s no money in a cure.

Criminals walk through paper and “support gun control” because it makes their like easier. What should be done is “Crime control” by revamping the criminal justice system to keep convicts in prison.. That means stop the revolving door. Punish harshly. Also keep moving prisoners from institution to institution so they have difficulty establishing internal gangs.
    I am tired of government attacking inanimate objects like guns and get to the source- THE CRIMINAL>

    Preach on, brother! Folks need to wake up and take their country back before it’s gone forever! Fight back. Resist at all costs. No giving in to tyranny!

    • justin February 19, 2021, 8:29 am

      Exactly right. People need to understand that mandates are NOT laws. They are nothing more than suggestions or guidelines, which can be ignored.
      Even EOs only apply to federal employees, and can only modify existing laws, not create new ones.
      Presidential over reach must be stopped and ignored.

  • Rob February 19, 2021, 7:59 am

    I say we take the Biden admin and feed some feral hoggs or gators. Or the gallows would suffice.

    • Gunny8541 February 19, 2021, 10:10 am

      They use this parkland shooting for their example. That should have never occurred had the sheriffs department did their job after dealing with this punk that actually did the shooting. Sheriffs department had almost 50 contacts with this guy who was MENTALLY ILL and nothing was done with this individual. So defund law enforcement and you will have more and more of these people who are eligible to purchase firearms and chances go way up for more senseless shootings. Also employ more cowards like the deputy hired as a resource officer at this high school who ran like a pussy instead of killing this moron. Joey and his side bitch are lip service for antifa and other left wingnut extremists.

  • pjw February 19, 2021, 7:55 am

    President Biden why not collect all the original copies of the Constitution of the United States of America and burn them
    in a public forum? Isn’t the destruction of the Republic, your final objective? To accomplish this goal you have to eliminate
    the Second Amendment first, don’t you?

  • dean February 19, 2021, 7:55 am

    THE LAW ABIDING CITIZEN CANNOT OWN AN ” ASSSALT ” RIFLE.
    THEY ARE FULLY AUTOMATIC. AND ARE NOT FOR SALE TO THE AVERAGE CONSUMER. WITH OUT PROPER DOCUMENTATION AND MUCH GOVERMENT INTERVENTION. THE U S MILITARY HANDS THEM TO EVERY 18 YEAR OLD WHO JOINS THEM AND RETRIVES THAT FIREARM BACK WHEN THEY LEAVE. ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE ON THE BOOKS NOW . ONE MORE LAW WILL NOT STOP THE CRAZEIES .OR THE CRIMINALS. POUR MILLIONS / BILLIONS INTO MENTAL HEALTH REHABILITATION. AND YOU WILL BE FARTHER AHEAD LONG TERM. THAT WOULD BE A ” COMMON SENSE ” LAW.

    • Pistolairno February 19, 2021, 9:14 am

      Agreed, firearms should not be labeled as a problem or solution, but the continued increase of mental illness, awareness, and treatment would be.

  • John February 19, 2021, 7:46 am

    There are more than enough laws on the books just enforce them. As the 2nd amendment clearly states “shall not be infringed” it can’t be stated any clearer. Got news for Bidumb we will not surrender our rights. Registration with this illegal government only means it makes it easier for them to confiscate your firearms

    • George February 19, 2021, 8:26 am

      They will try if we fold.

  • wayne February 19, 2021, 7:45 am

    Its all about control. They can not totally control you as long as you are armed. The dumb o crats, commies. are doing exactly what Hitler, Stalin, and every other dictator has done in order gain total control of the people, and their wealth. Wake up people!!! The dumb o crats are completely anti American in every respect. The election was STOLEN NOT WON !!! Biden is not the true potus.

  • Robert Rowan February 19, 2021, 7:44 am

    Time for the military to live up to their oath of defending the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic and throw these commies out of Washington. SOON.

    • Bill Stevensen February 19, 2021, 9:49 am

      Bidumb installed a traitor to head up our entire military his name is Honoré. That asshole is rooting out any voice that doesn’t align with his communist goals. Honore is a clear and present danger to our Country

  • LON LOREN February 19, 2021, 7:33 am

    Enforce all the gun laws we have. Criminals don’t obey laws. STOP defunding the police. You can’t buy new tools if you can’t use the tools you have.

  • Dennis February 19, 2021, 7:28 am

    say Joe when you took office did you or did you not say you would uphold the constitution if you are trying to ban firearms you are going against the constitution the 2nd amendment if you did not take the oath pack your bags and get out of office if that bible you had was not a bible you lied

  • Anthony Romano February 19, 2021, 7:07 am

    The assault weapon ban 20 years ago was proven to do NOTHING to reduce crime. This is the same old tired crap they try to push through. BTW Thanks to Clint Eastwood for backing Bloomberg and Sam Elliot for doing a commercial for Biden! Hollywood hypocrites!

  • Jesse Scott February 19, 2021, 7:02 am

    Resist

  • Mark February 19, 2021, 6:57 am

    How can you can something that does not exist?
    There is no such a thing.
    An Assault weapon?

    • srsquidizen February 19, 2021, 7:32 am

      Actually there are countless “assault weapons.” Louisville Slugger, Snap-On, Black & Decker etc. all need to be put out of business for knowingly making such things.

  • Leigh February 19, 2021, 6:45 am

    And this will do NOTHING to stop or hinder “gun violence”. Then what?
    All smoke and mirrors so people will FEEL like they did something.
    How about prosecuting…and harshly…the laws already on the books?
    Oh…that affects mostly POC, not the law-abiding gun owners of all colors…my bad…that would be racist…right?

    • Russell February 19, 2021, 7:29 am

      I’m curious! Leigh, how would enforcing the laws on the books affect people of color?

    Congress is not we the people and does not have the people’s interests in mind.
    Biden is a blatant impostor that needs to hang for treason.
    Any members of Congress who agree with him need to share the same fate.

    Yes, these morons are too stupid to grasp the fact that ACTUAL “Assault Rifles” have been banned for DECADES, that what we buy are “Assault Rifle” LOOK-A-LIKES, and that what they keep calling “High Capacity” Magazines are actually STANDARD CAPACITY! But they don’t really CARE! They are simply determined to disarm the Sheeple! All CROOKS prefer UNARMED VICTIMS! Just a simple fact!
    King George sent his troops to TAKE the arms and munitions from the SUBJECTS on 18-19 April, 1776 and started a WAR!
    These Anti-American TRAITORS are determined to start another one! They STOLE the election and now want absolute power!

  • JOHN D WATSON February 19, 2021, 6:27 am

    If you take away the gun rights from non-felons only they will have them ? It takes the Police & hour & half to get out to our house ? The crime would have already taken place by then ! So it will leave us defenseless to real criminals ? Who don’t buy their guns from a gun or sporting-goods store to get checked out or registered ! They steal them & buy them where they buy their drugs & other stolen goods ! So really what’s going to happen eventuality is they will use bombs & chemical IED”s like what happened in Iraq & Afghanistan ! Which killed and will kill hundreds at a time ! Changing gun laws will just mean folks will become victims instead of survivors ! You can run & duck & hide from bullets ! However the use of bombs & chemical weapons they will use will kill far more & destroy more property than any rifle or handgun ever could or would. ! Look at the facts of when the troops in Iraq disarmed the people They used IED”S & killed & wounded & maimed more soldiers & civilians than any shootouts ever did ! And unless you ban soap & fertilizer & potting soil there will be bombs ? So get ready cause that’s what happened there & other places around the world,such as Northern Ireland & the IRA ? Checkout the statistics of countries with strict gun laws & outright bans on them if this information isn’t correct ? Do the research yourself & check it out country by country. ?
    It is the sad truth on the matter! Those people who are determined to kill really don’t need a firearm to do so. And that’s the way it will evolve into here when all firearm are banned because that is what history tells us ! As rules gain freedom falls ! Take away the basic right to defend your family & property & then anything goes as well as taking all your rights,whether you agree or not ! The loss of that one right can lead to the taking away of any if not all of the others if so deemed by the powers that be ? What will be the hindrance to not pass just about any legislation then ! The 1rst. Amendment hinges on the 2nd ! The founding father’s of our constitution new this that’s why they put it 2nd !
    Sincerely & Respectfully !
    John D Watson

  • Ron February 19, 2021, 6:26 am

    Why is it the Left has to use the phrase “common sense” when they want something when in fact they are so far from common sense is is scary? There are already laws on the books forbidding what they are proposing. Just enforce them and leave the law abiding citizens alone.

  • Robert Peterson February 19, 2021, 6:05 am

    It’s time to go on offense. Has anyone investigated Sharon Watts for financial misappropriation of funds or other crimes? Everyone has skeletons in their closet. It’s time to start pulling some of these peoples skeletons out for the public to see.

  • Pete February 19, 2021, 5:41 am

    Per the FBI, only about 2% of firearms crimes are committed with any type of long gun. That includes all shotguns, and rifles. The AR platform is the most popular single type of long gun in the US. Add to that the fact that most homicides are committed with hands, fists, etc. And there’s that pesky 2nd Amendment.

  • Dale Cundiff February 19, 2021, 5:25 am

    Come and take them

  • Geo Pro February 19, 2021, 5:19 am

    I don’t quite understand … for example, if I have a handgun I want to sell to you, and Biden wants you to have a background check, how can that be done? What’s to stop me from just giving you the gun and taking your money? This is how it’s done by casual sellers (not gun stores) in gun shows in most states.

    • Interesting February 19, 2021, 9:02 am

      Weird cause that would be a straw purchase of a hand gun. You have to get a transfer permit from the local police dept to transfer a hand gun or thru a FFL dealer

    • Kane February 19, 2021, 10:58 am

      A legal sale under Biden’s plan would probably require the participation of a FFL 3rd party. There would surely be federal sting operations targeting people (remember Randy Weaver) who fail to comply.

  • Jim February 19, 2021, 5:07 am

    Yep they can sit in their ivory towers and have all the guards they need with actual full auto assault weapons how dare we common folk want the same arms to protect ourselves and families…its not about lives its about control otherwise they would ban abortion, knives, hammers, cars, pools, fast food…….you get the point

  • Bradford LEET February 19, 2021, 4:35 am

    • Jose February 19, 2021, 6:38 am

      They say it’s like boiling a frog. Ban a few here, ban a few there and nobody will care enough at any given time for it to matter, until we end up like Britain. Hey, at least they’ve still got .22s and bolt-actions to shoot.

    • SD DENTON February 19, 2021, 10:19 am

      Use you head? Joe Biden? I’ve got one thing to say about that. “If you don’t use your head, you might as well have two assholes”

    • HenryK April 22, 2021, 10:58 am

      Impostor-In-Chief has no say as he is an ex-senator and an ex-vice president, not a currently elected government officer at all. Just a private citizen falsely claiming to be president.
      Further, he is not “Bid-en.” He is “Bought-and-paid-for-en” by Comrade Xi of the Communist Party of China. He is not open for bids. He has been an illegally unregistered agent of a foreign power (Red China) for decades.
      “China” Joe, “Beijing” Biden, is not subject to impeachment and removal from office, instead indictment, arrest and removal as a criminal trespasser in the White House, as an impersonator of a federal officer.
      The impostor claiming to be vice president is not qualified to be either vice president or president as she is not a natural born US citizen. To be a natural born US citizen one must be born on US “soil,” have a natural (biological) father who is an US citizen at the time of birth, and have a natural mother who is an US citizen at the time of giving birth.
      🐫a’s father was a citizen of Jamaica, not the USA. Her mother, a citizen of India.
      She is an US citizen by naturalization, via the “14th amendment,” itself of doubtful constitutionality.
      We survived, though wounded, eight years of an impostor in the presidency. He claimed to have been born in Kenya, then part of the British Empire. He resisted showing an USA birth certificate for two years, then finally grudgingly revealed a sloppily photoshopped fake Hawaii birth certificate.

    CNN says: “Some Democrats in Washington are “more confident” that for the first time in more than two decades gun safety reforms are within reach. But passing any gun legislation remains a longshot as Democrats need to get at least 10 Republicans on board with any proposal since they hold a very slim majority in the Senate.”

    Why do they need 10 Republicans? Don’t the Democrats have a majority in the House and Senate?
    Is this to get the bill out of committee or something?

    • kc (sire/your majesty) February 16, 2021, 11:01 am

      The filibuster still exists, besides which they probably want a bipartisan “fig leaf” to give themselves some cover.
