BELLEVUE, WA – “Joe Biden is no longer hiding his real intentions,” to ban semiautomatic rifles and handguns, the Second Amendment Foundation says in a new 60-second TV message that will be broadcast on nearly two dozen cable networks nationwide beginning next week.
Biden revealed his agenda in a stunning remark made during a Townhall program aired by CNN. Responding to a question about guns and crime, Biden responded, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous. I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things…”
“This was Joe Biden in a remarkably candid moment,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “He acknowledged to the entire country that he wants to ban not only the most popular rifle in America today, but also the type of pistol used by millions of law-abiding citizens for personal protection and home defense.
“When people view our new TV ad, they won’t have to take our word for it. They can listen to the words from Biden’s own mouth,” he said.
“Biden was, for once, honest enough to reveal his true agenda,” Gottlieb continued, “and we’re going to vigorously oppose his schemes by educating and alerting the public with our new, hard-hitting message that includes the president making that remark, as well as taking legal action as needed.”
SAF’s new 60-second message will be broadcast on the following networks: AMC, FX, the Comedy Network, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, One America News Network, Destination America, Bloomberg, BBC America, the Investigation Discovery Channel, American Heroes Channel, SYFY (Science Fiction), TLC (The Learning Channel), TruTV, DirecTV, The Weather Channel, HLN, Dish TV, CNBC, the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.
Viewers are asked to text “SAVE 2A” to 474747, and join the fight to save a right.
“This was not just some prepared remark on a teleprompter,” Gottlieb observed. “This was Joe Biden admitting he wants to ban millions of handguns, which he knows are protected by the Second Amendment. This was the president telling his constituents he would very much like to disarm them of their only means of personal protection. We’ve been warning about Biden’s intentions for a long time, and now he has confirmed everything we said. We’re hoping every American gun owner joins this fight to beat Biden’s disarmament plan.”
