Biden Suggests Ban on ‘High Caliber’ 9mm, ‘No rational basis for it in terms of self-protection’

President Joe Biden is notorious for talking nonsense about firearms and the 2A.  

Here are just some of his past remarks:

  • He has told folks that ARs are “harder to use” and “harder to aim” than shotguns. 
  • He has also advised homeowners who feel threatened by a potential invader to empty their double-barreled shotgun into the air, and “fire two blasts outside the house.” 
  • Cops should shoot knife-wielding attackers “in the leg,” as opposed to center mass, according to Uncle Joe.
  • And, part of the reason why one should support a ban on “assault weapons” is because cannons were “outlawed” during the Revolutionary War.

Well, this week he was at it again while talking to the press after disembarking Marine One on Monday.  

Biden referenced a recent visit to a New York hospital where doctors showed him x-rays of victims with gunshot wounds.  

“They showed me an x-ray,” he said, recounting how a 9mm bullet from a “high caliber” weapon causes more damage than a .22 caliber round.  

“A 9 mm bullet blows the lung out of the body,” he continued. “There’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of self-protection, hunting.” 

To make matters worse, 46 then reiterated his lie about a founding-era ban on cannons which has been explicitly fact-checked by The Washington Post. The Post gave it four Pinocchios, which means it’s a “whopper” of a “false claim.”

“The Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute. You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed,” he said.

Several GOP lawmakers scorched the president for his astounding ignorance.   

“The 9mm is the most popular self-defense round in America, and the caliber of choice for his own Secret Service,” Oklahoma Senate candidate Rep. Markwayne Mullin told Fox News Digital. “Biden’s ignorance is a threat to our constitutional liberties.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) added that Biden, “finally admitted how widespread the Socialist-Democrats’ gun control agenda is when he calls for the banning of handguns that citizens use to keep their families safe from criminals.”

“Law-abiding Americans have a constitutional right to protection whether Joe Biden likes it or not,” Scalise continued. “Especially as crime rates soar in Democrat controlled cities across the country, now more than ever Americans are exercising their right to defend themselves from the violent criminals being released on the streets by ‘defund the police’ leftists.” 

Reports indicate that Biden plans to meet with lawmakers in the coming days to discuss various gun control measures.  

On a positive note, at least Biden is somewhat aware of his own limitations, as he admitted to reporters Monday that he doesn’t have the power to ban guns.   

“I can do the things I’ve done and any executive action I can take, I’ll continue to take. But I can’t outlaw a weapon. I can’t change a background check. I can’t do that,” Biden explained.

    I have never been a fan of the 9mm round ( personal preference ,
    nothing against it ) , but the notion of our government banning any
    round , in common use , is absurd .

  • Tom Nicholson June 4, 2022, 11:44 am

    I hope that the idiots that voted for Sleepy Joe and his crew are happy. I’m very proud to say that I DID NOT!!

  • Dan Hayes June 3, 2022, 8:55 pm

    Hey Joe…where you going with that Gun in your Hand (duh-dum-da-da-da-da) I’m gonna make Congress Ban’em…gonna show Donald Trump, that I’M THE MAN! (duh-dum-da-da-da-da)…Hey Joe-Jimi Hendrix

    Sorry Pedophile Joe, but “the Donald”, as well as ALL True Americans, are Laughing at You…you’re a disgrace & just like Barry Obama was the entire Muslim Worlds Bitch…YOU ARE PUTINS BITCH!

    I had planned to beg you to Shut the Phuck Up unless you were knowledgeable of your Subject Matter, but who could you speak to on Camera, about “Copping a Feel off a 5-Year Old” or “Sniffing Tricycle Seats at the Playground”? (well I imagine there’s thousands in D.C.) If Politicians (Both Parties) are going to go ahead & TRY Banning Firearms…We The People will be FORCED Into Re-Educating the Lot of you, as to why the 2nd was written! It wasn’t written to save us from rampant Criminal Activity…it was Written to Warn & Protect Ourselves FROM YOU JOE…and the worst of our Countries Criminal Element…Politicians. It is time to Retire ALL Lifelong Professional Politicians & Remove ALL Muslims from ANY D.C. Public Office & Governmental Role/Job…This HAS to be done before we go the way of Europe! (as stated in the Constitution-it is not a Religion, the Quran is a Declaration of WAR and/or death to all who do not convert…AND, there is no such thing as a GOOD Muslim! They have to VOW to the Holy War as stated in the Quran. Did no one realize they were being Brain Washed by Frank Herbert’s Sci-Fi Classic Book Series “Dune”?) Sorry, it’s been a long time since I’ve Ranted and taking action is already too late for many. I could say SO MUCH MORE, but feel that I’ll Upset many of you…for right now, no matter what it takes…WE CANNOT LET THE ELITE TAKE OUR WEAPONS!

  • Jim June 3, 2022, 6:55 pm

    Joey “The Rat” Biden is an idiot wrapped in a moron OR there is a way for him to profit from this. I can’t figure which.

  • Russ June 3, 2022, 4:51 pm

    Diaper Joe is such a buffoon. Within hours of opening his imbecilic filth hole the administration had to come out and say what Dementia Joe really meant.

  • Mikial June 3, 2022, 2:19 pm

    Biden’s a drone with a single digit IQ. Unfortunately, so are most of the people who voted for him, so they probably believe his description of a 9mm as a “high” caliber” round.

  • Stephen June 3, 2022, 12:59 pm

    Would somebody please educate this man as to what exactly happens when a bullet hits a body. I really didn’t know that a bullet was educated enough to extract a lung… Does it do stitches too? What an idiot!!!!

  • Stephen June 3, 2022, 12:44 pm

    It would be real nice if someone took this guy aside and let him know the facts he is about to expound upon. At this point in time he has proven he knows absolutely nothing on the subject and is making a total ass of himself. For him? Par for the course I guess.

  • Michael J June 3, 2022, 12:14 pm

    This cheesedick is about as useless as a asshole with taste buds.

  • Stan d. Upnow June 3, 2022, 10:08 am

    If that living, breathing moron feels that way about the common 9mm Parabellum round, I can’t even imagine what that waste of O2 thinks about the .40S&W, 10mm, .45ACP, or .50AE.
    Probably would say: “If you get hit with one of those, it will blow your body into orbit! Ban them all!”

    On the side, WTH are doctors doing sharing personal medical records with Any unauthorized outside party??!
    That’s a glaring violation of physician/patient confidentiality laws.

  • John June 3, 2022, 9:27 am

    Biden continues to show his inability to be coherent. It was obvious from the days of the campaign. During the debates he just laughed because he was told to do that as a defense since he was incompetent of doing anything else. He has focused on undoing everything Trump did, not on running the country because he can’t. He doesn’t know a 9mm from a 45 or anything related to firearms. Our sheriffs department carries 45 auto and recommends we do also and that we use the same ammo they do.
    When Russia started the war he was at fault because Putin knew this was his chance. A useless president and a totally unqualified Vice President. Biden’s statement was let’s do these sanctions and give it a couple months, OMG months totally disconnected from reality.

  • Richard Lockwood June 3, 2022, 8:54 am

    Fuck Biden and fuck the government . How about Biden and this lying government fix this country instead of destroying even more then they have.

  • Frank HENSLEY June 3, 2022, 8:24 am

    Biden and his band of anti-gun nuts still can’t understand that outlaws have every type of gun including military full-automatic versions. Are we going to have to defend our homes and families with rocks? Whoever is telling Old Joe the facts about guns has no direct knowledge themselves.

    Why don’t they go after the bad guys with guns first? Who commits these crimes anyway? Not law abiding folks, but we are the ones that these political chumps go after first.

    What killed Able in the Bible? His evil Brother Cain or the Rock in his hand? If we can spend Billions on BS projects that do not help Americans build a better life, then spend those monies on evaluating people with mental health issues who do not need to have a gun in their hands, ever.

    Why do Politicians constantly attack the Rights of Law-Abiding Citizens? They should be more worried about the Southern Border and rounding up all illegal aliens.

    Yes, I said “Illegal Aliens.” First, they are Aliens from other Countries who are coming into our country without any security checks. Second, it is illegal to enter our Country without documentation to do so.

    How many radical Islamic nut-jobs have entered into the US through Biden’s Southern “Open” border? Who knows? No one is allowed to check on them. If terrorists start attacking our places where people congregate, will Congress be more concerned with Citizens owning grenades and rocket launchers as well as any gun? I guess we may find out. That is why I am always armed, even in my home.

    If one person is killed by an illegal alien who has crossed Biden’s open border, then Biden should be held as an accessory to murder, right?

    Every one of the School and Hospital shootings was done by a person who should not have had the gun. How many people have gone to jail because the violated the “Brady Bill” requirement of telling the truth on the Firearms Application Form? A couple in almost thirty years? Why? Because politicians make Laws to make it look like they care about their communities. They do care about donations and making great speeches, and that is about it.

    • Bob Wyman June 3, 2022, 4:03 pm

      It was the jawbone of an ass I believe the Bible in some versions say…The same thing as Biden uses to speak his mind, such as it is.

  • graceythecat June 3, 2022, 6:36 am

    if brains were gun powder, dementia jo doesn’t have enough to blow his nose!

  • Blue Dog (he/him) June 2, 2022, 1:20 pm

    To defend Biden on one point in particular – he might not mean .22LR when he says a .22 bullet. A 5.56 or .223 projectile would be correctly described as a .22 bullet and would fit with the current focus on ARs.

    I think pretty much everything the Executive branch can do, or even get away with, to crack down on assault weapons has happened in the last 10 or 12 years. They didn’t manage to pull off the ban on penetrator 5.56 ammo after their 5.45 ban and the ITAR redefinitions on gunsmithing fell flat, so I guess they could go for that again. Barack Obama’s influence is certainly easily seen in the current administration with so many of his people back in high positions of the current administration and Obama has said repeatedly that his inability to get any of his firearm agenda passed was the greatest disappointment of his administration. I think this has contributed to the singular focus on restricting access to certain firearms and accessories in the wake of these shootings at the expense of considering other measures that would help with school safety, like what they are calling hardening the schools. Why not do both? Why so vehemently pursue one with the absolute dismissal of the other?

    It is a total shame that Chuck Schumer is an ineffective fossil. The comments I have heard reported from Mitch McConnell, that he is open to advancing gun safety legislation but it would have to come from the Democratic caucus, only to have Schumer say they won’t be doing anything in the Senate… it is like what I heard this one guy say on the radio, not all old people are innocent. Why is Schumer scared? Why are the Obama holdovers so urgent to move on gun safety now? Because they are preparing in case the mid-terms go poorly and the nation is burdened with two years of gridlock and stagnation. The blue wave isn’t as sure in 2022 as it has been the last couple of elections. Midterms usually go against the party of the President.

      dog you british twit…how do you know what biden meant? We have laws in our country that the president has to obey, not like yours where the queen gets a wild hair up her ass and it is law! Speaking of asses I will say 70 yrs on the throne is an accomplishment but not sure why it is known, my throne time is private…….

    • Stan d. Upnow June 3, 2022, 10:58 am

      Well hey, if it isn’t the Blue Dog(she/it) Leftist troll again. Back with more twisted takes on American shooters and firearms. Maybe if he had a job, he wouldn’t have time to fill his empty skull with all that Leftist dribble.

    • Your daddy June 3, 2022, 11:18 am

      Worry about the muzrats in your own country and mind you business about other countries. We haven’t given a bald rats ass what the British opinion since 1776.. and not about to start now either..

    • Bob Wyman June 3, 2022, 4:16 pm

      He did not say .22LR, L or Short nor did he say two twenty three so in common speaking to say ‘twenty two’ in a discussion of calibers all would understand it to mean .22LR (LR means “long rifle” as if I had to even explain that here).
      Congress has very little power if any on gun bans and anything limiting or banning would be infringing which is not legal under our Constitution. However state’s Rights have self-appointed power and leeway to do as they please but usually under executive order which can be trashed when the tyrant has left office which occurs never soon enough. These tyrants know that Americans are civil and thus the tyrant rarely fears firearms being used to end their term. This administration seems to enjoy pushing their luck and the People’s patience, as all democrats have been displaying an arrogance and mental disorder for some time now.

        Mr. Fonda, I am trying to understand your statement here. Are you saying that my seed is especially potent and highly fertile? Are you my urologist now? A lesser man might use this oppourtunity to make a yo momma joke, to say that you came by this knowledge because your mother had warned you about my potency, but I know that we respect each other too much to engage in such base insults.

    • a11four1 June 3, 2022, 9:43 pm

      Certain that isn’t actual ‘Blue Dog”; too many logical points, observations, and realizations; until I ran onto “….in CASE the mid-terms go poorly…..” phrase.
      Oooh it’s him, dogged believer in misdirected causes.

      That detail has been unintended specialty of the overall Biden-Harris-Pelosi-Schumer-RINO-Squad-Fauci-MSM-Regional Liberals since previous January.

      Unless the Right believes memes and trivial comments make up for ballot box negligence. Which unfortunately, is a high rank possibility.

  • Dee June 2, 2022, 11:03 am

    Biden wouldn’t even know witch end of the gun to point at a criminal let alone knowing how to use one.
    He is so out of it and was the day he took office. The people who voted for him are complicit in all the rotten
    things he has done to this country,

  • carol m June 2, 2022, 9:56 am

    Sir why does Biden have S.S. Arm. with 9 m.m. guns protecting him???

    • Bob Wyman June 3, 2022, 3:57 pm

      If you are old enough to recall that when Reagan was fired upon by John Hinkley the LEOs were on him (Hinkley) in a split second and one standing up was quickly scanning the area holding what appeared to be full-auto UZI type weapon in his right hand. You do not see Secret Service carrying these but obviously they have them concealed in an easily accessible carrier. 9mm is my choice for a semi-auto pistol and minimum in ballistics. 357 and 44 magnums are superior but the recoil can cause hesitation not to mention reacquiring target delay. Full auto such as the old BAR 30.06 and on down in size will cause everyone to hit the deck faster than the rounds can travel or so they hope.

      I had occasion to visit an indoor range and took the opportunity to hang the silhouette target at 25 ft.. As fast I could possibly fire, no hesitation, all 13 rounds hit the body mass and I guessed that all were severely disabling and most fatal. Each were satisfactory if one had had only a single round to fire. I have that target but I moved so it is boxed up somewhere.
      My next elk/deer hunt I shall save the lungs to hang up between rib cages and see what happens when a 9mm is fired at that target. I know already only thing to exit the target will be the bullet. I can try a 30.06 as well and know again that a bullet will be all that exits but it should be a interesting video to share

      • Bob Wyman June 3, 2022, 4:00 pm

        I should add that it was a Browning Hi-Power 9mm I used at that target to be clear.

      • Ricky B. June 2, 2022, 10:38 pm

        You’re wrong, I claim zero affiliation with your cult. Unlike the current Republican party, which has completely abandoned their principles to worship a narcissistic liberal douchebag who happens to be Vladimir Putin’s bitch, I am actually conservative.

        • Stan d. Upnow June 3, 2022, 11:24 am

          I understand some of your sentiments, especially regarding the Republicans. But, you ignore/overlook the Fact that under Pres. Trump, much good was done to benefit the country through his policies. Unlike the worthless jackasses in Congress. I had plenty of issues with Donald Trump, but I supported him for the right direction he was taking the country.

          Seems like that if it came down to Biden vs. Trump in 2024, you might go with Biden. If that’s true, then you are absolutely Not a Conservative!
