Biden Says He Is ‘Determined to Ban Assault Weapons’ Following Midterms

President Biden has big plans for America, and on Thursday he laid them out before a crowd at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville, MD.

“We will codify Roe v. Wade, we’ll ban assault weapons, we’ll protect Social Security and Medicare, we’ll pass universal pre-K, we’ll restore the childcare tax credit, we protect voting rights, we’ll pass election reform, and make sure no one, no one has an opportunity to steal an election again,” said Biden.  

Biden later said he is “determined to ban assault weapons” and urged citizens to use this as a litmus test for choosing which candidate to vote for in the upcoming midterm elections.  

“If you’re not, we’re not going to vote for you. Period,” Biden said. 

The president also took a shot at Donald Trump’s MAGA (Make American Great Again) movement, saying it’s “like semi-fascism.”

“What’s happened is there aren’t many real Republicans anymore,” Biden explained, adding, “I respect conservative Republicans. I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.”

Biden and Trump are virtually neck and neck in 2024 presidential polls.

A recent Emerson College poll released last Friday had Biden over Trump by one percentage point: 43 to 42, with 8 percent voting for another candidate and 6 percent undecided.

But as Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, noted, “This is the first time since asking the hypothetical Trump-Biden matchup this year that Biden outperforms Trump.”

UPDATE: Biden doubled down on his vow to ban “assault weapons” during a speech in Pennsylvania:

    What was it Einstein said regarding sanity ?

    “ Doing the same thing time and again , expecting
    different results , is the definition of insanity . “

    Wasn’t that it ?

    Puppet Joe is just a sounding board for those running the show. Know that.
    Oh, and the Puppet did as he was told and snuffed our border wall, but guess what? He’s building a $500,000 wall around his personal beachfront property….. at taxpayer expense!!

    “Policies for thee, not for me.”

    To think that anything above a zero approval in those polls occurs is bewildering. What is wrong with the people out there?

    From the article above: ” . . . and make sure no one, no one has an opportunity to steal an election again,”

    “Again”? Is Biden admitting that an election HAS been stolen? Which one do you suppose he is thinking of – Pres. Elctn 2020 perhaps?

  • Tina Roberts September 2, 2022, 12:17 pm

    This label of ‘assault weapons’ annoys me. Anything could be an assault weapon. Looking at crime statistics one would note that hands and fists are used to kill more people than guns. How about we outlaw hands and fists? The whole thing is so political and lacking of logic. I guess it is just another indication of what we get when people vote on emotion instead of logic. Then we end up with politicians whose most obvious attributes are ignorance and arrogance.

    Remember the video of the auto worker that confronted Biden on his stump trail, and accused him of trying to take AR’s from everyone? Biden denied he was coming for your guns…well, he lied, what else is new about a democommunist? But, in his current demented condition, he probably has no recollection of that confrontation. I envision the end of the movie, ’50 First Dates’ and every morning they run this videotape of who and what he is.

    • Buck September 2, 2022, 6:37 pm

      Yeh..that guy is running for some office now as a republican rep.

    As the owner of Ak-47, AK-74, and AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, I don’t support Biden’s or anyone else’s agenda to ban “assault weapons”, At the same time, I believe a woman should have the right to choose abortion if she believes it’s the best option for her based on her health and/or for other reasons. So I have no problem with Roe v. Wade codification, though I doubt that will happen anytime soon, if at all.

    As for as another Biden – Trump presidential race, I hope it doesn’t happen. I’d like to see new blood for all 2024 U.S. presidential contenders. I’m no Biden fanboy, but Trump’s as close to being a complete derriere wipe as it gets. My Florida voter registration is “no party affiliation”. In the past, I’ve voted for Republican, Democrat, and independent candidates running for various offices depending on who I thought was the best qualified, and/or the least of the evils, for whatever political position was at stake. I don’t vote along party lines and try not to vote for a person based solely on that candidate’s stand on one particular issue, though it’s sometimes difficult not to do so. But each to his/her own.

        • Frank September 4, 2022, 12:13 pm

          Let me get this straight, we had lower prices, stable inflation, respect around the world, a secure boarder, booming stock market, lower taxes, and record low crime and you call the guy who policies got us there a “wanna-be king”. Do you really think we were lucky to elect Biden? Based on what? you are just a troll. We need to go back to the America 1st policies that made this a better country for all people!

      Jed K – could not agree with you more. Trump is a horses ass – a crook, misogynist, racist, buffoon. I detest the new democrats but absolutely hate the MAGA republicans and Rump. I want to vote fiscally conservative but that appears impossible at this time.

Talk about not being able to fix stupid! Oh wait, not being able fix stupid is the whole demoncrapic party.

  • Barry Smith September 2, 2022, 9:54 am

    Unless we get rid of the spineless Republicans who have done nothing to stop these socialist and globalist maniacs, we’ll be living under tyranny like the world has never seen. This may be our last chance. Half of the country can’t think and reason critically or morally. This is because of the indoctrination that has been going on in our public schools and elsewhere for decades. This current generation of young people will gladly hand over their rights and liberties, because they’ll believe the state’s lies to take care of them from cradle to grave. We are living in a Romans 1 world.

  • Kane September 2, 2022, 9:54 am

    That fake POTUS but real POS, Biden, used the USMC as a prop with his political stumping while calling millions of Americans “facists.”

    This is the same fake POTUS who got 13 service members killed 11 of which were USMC. This is the same fake POTUS who checked his watch as the dead service members were being transported to Dover.

    A corrupt, weak pervert like JOE BIDEN should be perp walked out of the WH and never again should such low character be any near the levers of power again.

  • Leinad Rekrap September 2, 2022, 9:39 am

    Look at the crybabies!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I can’t have all my toys I’m going to throw a fit. Well I have the guns I want and assault weapons are not part of them. Biden is not attacking the second amendment. We still have well regulated militias, we still have the right to bear arms and he or anyone will not take that away and no one is trying. Get real. Look at what you call Brandon and compare to films of Hitler…..see if you can see similarity.

    • Nick September 2, 2022, 1:37 pm

      So since you don’t want an AR, no one should have one? That’s typical liberal thinking. By the way what makes an AR an assault weapon? Is it because it looks scary to you all that aluminum and polymer, because that’s the only difference from any other semi automatic firearm. An assault weapon has a burst or automatic function, and the government is more than willing to sell you one and collect the special tax added. Biden also considers a 9mm an assault weapon he wants banned because the idiot thinks they blow out peoples lungs.
      Please save your liberal thoughts for an anti American site.

    • Shanz September 2, 2022, 6:05 pm

      Hitler? Biden and his cohorts are undoubtedly the stupidest people to run the executive branch in our countries short history.

    If crime have assault guns how we can self defense from crime because we don’t have assault gun ??? Because of government it government fault this !!!

  • Abnormal September 2, 2022, 9:17 am

    Brandon hasn’t kept a single promise to America yet and is failing on everything except our destruction as a nation and a people. The only thing that shitbag has done is confirmed that he is indeed a complete loser. He wants to ban assault weapons yet he can’t even define what that is. #FJB in the eye.

    • FirstStateMark September 2, 2022, 10:16 am

    • Rock September 2, 2022, 10:56 am

      If these polls are true, we are witnessing the suicide of our republic. It is hard to believe that there are THAT MANY foolish dumb Americans that would vote for this imbecile Biden. “They” have a four pronged plan that seems to be working.

      1) Import AS MANY destitute ignorant, illiterate, unskilled people as possible and put them on LBJ’s plantation. They will in turn vote democrat, forever.

      2) Let no “crisis” go to waste. If there is not one, create one. They did it with covid in order to get mail in ballots, they will do it again.

      3) Control the media, big tech, and use it to censor free speech.

      4) Compromise and control “law enforcement” at all federal levels. The only law enforcement we can trust now are our state force and our local sheriffs.

      When Abraham Lincoln spoke of “a new nation, new birth of freedom” in his Gettysburg Address …. he was ACTUALLY speaking about his vision of a new all powerful FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

      Folks, any “union” created by force with the barrel of a gun is not a union. Vlad Putin is NO DIFFERENT than Abraham Lincoln. They both wanted the same things. Putin waited too long yet Lincoln had done worse than Putin …. thus far.

      Folks, choose whom you will this fall but ANY VOTE foe ANY democrat is a vote for corruption, tyranny, socialism, and slavery.

    • Rock September 2, 2022, 11:49 am

      We are witnessing the destruction of our republic via suicide. The children want the candy and always favor Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Socialism is moving forward thanks to Obama and the new democrats.

      Federalism = Fascism.

      Anybody voting democrat is contributing to our nations destruction and if you are upset by Trump’s mean tweets and undignified behaviors and let THAT influence your voting …. then you are a special kind of DUMBA§§ as well as a traitor to this country!

  • Robert Reagan Jones September 2, 2022, 8:55 am

    Now I know the devil is in Brandon!
    This speech is a threat of violence against president Trump and The Republic of the United States of America.
    If the commies stay in power in November then the second amendment will be our last resort to defend against Brandon’s tyrannical assault on our constitution.
    Fuck you Brandon!

    • Rock September 2, 2022, 11:03 am

      Yes …. but …. this imbecile and his minions are a reflection of us, “we the people”. The concept of a democratic republican government hardly exists anymore among the American people.

  • R B September 2, 2022, 8:51 am

    ….. “we protect voting rights, we’ll pass election reform, and make sure no one, no one has an opportunity to steal an election again,” said Biden.

    Interesting comment, especially since the only ones that I know of that have been accused of stealing an election are the Democrats.

    MOLON LABE!

  • Jorge September 2, 2022, 8:42 am

    I rarely comment on things that I can not control, but here I must throw in my 2 cents, we are worrying about to many things that are going to happen anyway, and will be reversed once a real government takes control once more, we seem to forget what forged this nation into what it is, it sure as hell was not this bunch of morons that can’t figure out which end to piss out of, people need to relax and let these mutants screw it up as much as they can, in the end we deserve it, we stood by and let it happen, the more they screw it up, the more it will affect the idiots that allowed it to happen, and the more resistance they will receive come voting time, I figure this is just a wake up call, and when it’s all said and done, there will be a lot to repair, it’s happened before, and lament it’s happened again, and will happen again once this craziness is repaired, it’s just the nature of our beast. be strong and pucker up, we deserve this. I was heavily criticized when I said I did not like trump, and this is the reason why, I voted for him, but not because I liked him, I never did, even before he became president, he got this country to a great place, but at what price, at pissing off the morons that did not like his tweeter finger and voted for our present fearless leader, I just hope we have learned something from this that will be burned into our hearts and pocket books for years to come, this country will recover, but it will take time and smart people, not arrogant, orange clowns, Disantis is looking good, I just hope he doesn’t make the same mistakes.

    • Shanz September 2, 2022, 6:15 pm

    If Americans wont fight to keep their liberties then they dont deserve them. And the right to bear arms is once such liberty.
