President @BillClinton breaks down the simplest way to reduce gun violence. pic.twitter.com/hSqpy9WwuV— attn (@attn) November 2, 2022
Bill Clinton wants Congress to renew the ’94 ban on so-called “assault weapons,” which expired in 2004.
Clinton made his case this week in a short video published by the media company ATTN.
“We must act now,” says Clinton. “Enough is enough.”
The former president leaned on his relationship with gun culture when he was a youth in an attempt to add credence to his plea.
“I grew up in this culture. … Most of those people would never do anything to endanger an innocent life,” Clinton says.
“They have been terrified into thinking that if they agree to the most simple, straightforward, obvious, noninterfering mechanisms, somehow it’s the beginning of a slippery slope that will rob them of their Second Amendment rights. It’s not true,” he adds.
This wouldn’t be the first time Clinton’s told a bald-faced lie to the American people.

A sweeping ban on America’s best-selling centerfire rifle is a slippery slope that only leads to more draconian gun control.
This is because gun control is wholly ineffective at reducing crime. When a ban on black rifles fails to stop the next mass killing, anti-gun zealots will seek to further restrict 2A rights on the premise that we still haven’t done enough to tackle the “gun violence epidemic.”
We’ve seen this in action in New York, New Jersey, and California.
Politicians in these states didn’t call it quits after they banned so-called “assault weapons” and “large-capacity magazines.”
They doubled down with measures to prohibit concealed carriers from bringing firearms into “sensitive locations,” require gun owner liability insurance, mandate background checks for ammo purchases, increase fees for gun permits, and allow lawsuits against gun makers for the criminal acts of third parties, among many others.
Anyone who is remotely paying attention can see that the gun prohibition lobby is never satisfied. The slope is indeed very steep and very slippery despite what Clinton maintains.
A national “assault weapons” ban, therefore, would only be the beginning. The next step would be the registration of prohibited firearms in circulation that were possessed prior to the rollout of the ban.
This is something that the Biden administration has explicitly voiced support for. From president Joe Biden’s website:
Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.
What follows registration is also obvious to those of us who’ve been paying attention: confiscation.
Look no further than to our neighbors to the North for proof! The Canadian government is now in the process of using taxpayer dollars to seize firearms from law-abiding citizens under the guise of a “buyback” program.
While one may say, “Well, that’s Canada, that’ll never happen here.” The truth is it is happening here! Delaware, of all places, is forcing responsible gun owners to turn in their magazines with a capacity of over 17 rounds.
Delawareans who refuse to comply could face felony charges and may end up losing their 2A rights permanently.
So yes, Clinton, Biden and the rest of the Democrats are trying to rob us of our rights. Their recent actions in Democratically-controlled states on this issue speak much louder than their words.
F**K Bill Clinton and F**K Delaware. DO NOT COMPLY ! If our own gov’t wants to make us felons for following the Constitution and being patriotic, so be it. Remember, be careful what you ask for.
Maybe what we REAL Americans need to do is, every time there is a election, we need to fill up all and every 2nd amendment topic with that we need to get back our original rights to own machine guns and all the time add in things like…rocket launchers, granades, tanks etc. ..etc, That might keep the Democrat terrorists too busy to worry about these little things. Hell, lets say we want drones as well! And free ammo at government expense. And we can even give it to all the illegals coming in. And we wont stop until the Dums stop trying to change any or any part of our 2nd amendment from this day forward. Maybe this would make those idiots leave us alone, once and for all.
Fuck bill Clinton. He’s a known liar, rapist and just a senile old fool like Xiden. FJB.
You all know that in the mid 60’s thru the 70’s uncle Sam was so good at taking 19 year olds and teachering
them how to kill and now you want to take from. They learn to make bananna clips that would hold 40 -60 and some more rounds. All that want to take everything away go let people shot at you and then you will learn what is like.
Ah, Slick Willy!
Nothing like a child rapist trying to tell me how to live my life. The problem is not American gun culture, it is open borders allowing sub-humans into our polite, law abiding society. Nixon did it to John Lennon, Its time to start revoking citizenship to Slick Willy and his ilk and deport them to Antarctica. Do they have any room left in Iceland in that jail they sent all the brokers who collapsed their economy?
.22 hollow point between the eyes. Cheap, effective, might get a death kick like an old coon in a tree, but that’ll be all.
People like Clinton and his wife are why we need so called “assault weapons ” and large capacity magazines
When liberals win, America looses.
Don’t ever ignore this.
If they EVER get it again… they’ve learned to NOT include the *sunset clause* next time.
Bill can go to hell
…and take Joe with him…
Joe, Killary, Pelosi, kameltoe, etc., etc..
When might the people in this Nation wake up? You have no rights that you are unwilling to enforce in accordance with the rule of Law.
The Founders of this Nation incorporated Militia into the Constitution (Article I, § 8, Cl.15) as the only recognized authority “to execute the Laws of the Union…” In order that the Institution be untouchable by the hands of “public officials” there must be an amendment to change any aspect of what Militia is, how it functions, and its Power. To make that a virtual impossibility to change, they added the 2nd amendment to make sure that we understood it to be not only a Duty, but also an unalienable Right that cannot be regulated, removed, or relinquished.
The only way to alter that function was for the people to deny their duty, and abdicate the right. That is correct. We have abdicated the Right by disparaging the Duty that is clearly written into the Constitution, and the myriad of history, and Law surrounding the Militia.
Pro-2nd people are fooling themselves when they argue about what Militia actually is, and by bringing bad cases before the court based on the erroneous assumption the state has any authority in this matter except to make sure that there is a functioning Militia composed of able-bodied men who periodically train as soldiers and perform in emergencies.
And we care about Bill spreading lies because? It does surprise me that he would actually make the statement knowing that the bill he signed into law had a clause that required the government to study how the ban impacted crime after 18 months. The government report said that basically, the ‘Assault Weapon’ ban had no impact on crime reduction because ‘modern sporting rifles’ are used in so few crimes (less then the number of people killed with clubs, fists, etc.) that they could not determine whether it was effective. But Bill knows this. He is just adding to the lies. Remember, if you tell a lie enough, people will start to believe it. Also, if you believe Blow Job Bill, you are a fool. He lied under oath and that is a fact.
Funny how they are not the least bit concerned about how many ppl are dying from fentanyl overdose…. bill Clinton needs to worry about his chomo-tendencies and not my constitutional rights
Deceitful, no good, lying, pieces of horse shit! Like they really care about anyone’s safety. LMAO! What they care about really is disarming the population & having complete control over us. Our second amendment right to bear arms, regardless of type or features, shall not be infringed on!!! Anyone seeking to eliminate or restrict a constitutional right is anti-american! We have god-given rights, not government-given, & I will die defending every last one of them, especially against tyrannical government!!! #REVOLUTION
” Bill Clinton: ‘We Must Act Now’… ”
I thought it was ALLLL an ACT !!!
Pound sand, Bill. A ban didn’t work back then, and it won’t work now.
Canada banned so-called “assault weapons” first and Fidel Castro’s love child, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, just banned the importation transfer or sale of ALL handguns through, if I understand it correctly, the Canadian equivalent of an executive order. In a country full of bears and other dangerous animals Canadians won’t even be able to bring a trusty S&W M29 .44 mag or a Glock 10mm with them when they’re in the wilderness because when the current generation of gun owners dies out their already registered guns will go to the government. That’s the path we are on if we budge one inch. Both Clinton and Trudeau are inveterate liars. Trust nothing they say. Surrender nothing because if you do you should be prepared to surrender everything.
Truedope needs to permanently visit step daddy Trudeau and daddy Castro in the pit of hell.
So, if most people who own firearms would never do anything to harm another person, why should they give up their rights? His logic is flawed and purely ideologic based….SMH
This is what it looks like to lead from the political centre! Bill Clinton is right, an assault weapons ban worked then and it can work now. Ronald Reagan, supply side Jesus himself, supported the ban! He is right – an AK-47 is not a sporting arm.
This is not a slippery slope but reacting to gun violence will require updates and additions to our laws for safety. In the same way first requiring tests for driver licenses then seat belts and then air bags made our streets safer, new gun violence rules make our streets safer. An AWB is enhanced by regulating hi-cap mags, which is made even safer by licensing citizens to own firearms.
It is so simple, any politician not on Putin’s payroll can do it.
Yeah like masks work and Covid shots. Go to sleep sheeple or troll your dem party
Blue Dog, I don’t know where you get your facts from, but it’s not from a reliable source. Most liberal think tanks agree with the government funded study that the AWB under Blow Job Bill, did nothing to reduce crime. MSR’s are use in so few crimes that the FBI does not even track them desperately from all long guns (think rifle and shotguns). And a recent study by another liberal think tank found that 99% of the studies by other liberal think tanks were so grossly flawed that the conclusions were invalid or false. There is no study that has shown, using verifiable facts, that gun control laws reduce crime or prevent mass shootings. Just the opposite. So Blue Dog, if you can’t post FACTS here, please help Bill re-connect with Monica
Its the feral amish doing over 2/3rds of the violent gun crime, and those arms arent procured legally, stolen, straw buys with their girlfriend buying, back alley deals, etc…so you can get fooked. We the people determined, we shall not further comply and have become ungovernable from a bunch of corrupt, immoral, psychopathic control freak commies. RWYS time. make america commie free MACF!
Yep, the bogus ban was based on “assault style weapons” that could have something like 3 out of 5 characteristics and still be legally produced and sold. As I remeber the charateristics included semi-auto fire. a mag well. a flash suppressor and a bayonett lug. So typically firearms without a the lug and flash suppressor were being sold. People like Willie Jeff and BD champion the ban because the stats on the the impact cannot be used to make any real determinations other than obtaining control.
What a doltish fool you are .
Leave the stupid devil child Blue Dog alone, Jesus will exterminate every antigunner psycho and every liberal fool in everlasting flames. Even Blue Dog. Enjoy the flames flamer.
Good point .
My apologies to all the fine readers here .
It appears the good vicar , krinkov545 ,
took offense at me pointing out the obvious .
Save your sermons , preacher , it’s not yet Sunday .
I repeat my request that the blue dog turd go troll someone else. Have the dog shit you somewhere else. It/what even misspells ‘center’.
Go back under the rock that you crawled out from under, and leave actual gun owners alone.
Besides, you guys/whats just hate my rifle because it’s black.
Say hi to the antigunners like the Dunce and Slick Willie when you’re lift eyes in torment in the flames lefty fool. No liberal trash allowed in heaven.
Now we learn that BD belongs to a store front church that advocates using the name of Christ as a low brow punchline. When will you bottom out BD?
“Why Wyatt, it would appear my hypocrisy has no boundary.”
You are right. It was low of me to connect Reagan and Jesus like that. There was no overlap between their teachings. I will be sure to ask forgiveness, which was something Jesus advocated for and thus Reagan did not.
Can’t help wondering how unforgiving Reagon actually was over 8 years or even throughout his whole life? Must be real bad,
Meanwhile we have a corrupt, fool that has marched the planet up to a nuclear war, why? The same darned fool that ended the longest war in US history in the most shameful manner while recklessly costing the lives of 13 service members. Did you see the fake POTUS check his watch at Dover?
The same darned fool that lined his pocket for over 50 years or aroud 20% of the US existance while also using the deep state to protect himself and his crime family. The only thing this low life will NOT protect his family from is himself.
There are surely many dark secrets that will never reach the light of day, but something did. A diary where Biden’s daughter documeted how her father showered with her as a young child and assaulted her. Biden covered this up with all the power of the deep state crushing the couple who found the diary. This episode surely hints at how how Hunter became the person he is.
I have never been so scared as an American as I have for the last 2 years as a senile pervert controls the US military and the fate of the world.
Tell me again how bad Reagan was. How awful it was as Trump failed to push the US into another war.
Go back to Drag Queen Story Hour…
Swish swish swish.
I am not into that personally and that’s okay. What works for you does not have to work for me.
