I am committed to outlaw assault rifles in our nation, President Joe Biden screamed at a speech on Tuesday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
In order to transition to “assault weapons,” Biden mentioned the passage of Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) gun control legislation this summer.
As he claimed “the great majority” of Republican members of Congress could not back Cornyn’s gun restriction because the NRA was opposed to it, he rose to a crescendo.
Law enforcement, religious leaders, teachers, and young people in our country, including students at this prestigious institution, all backed the ban, according to Biden. However, the NRA and the vast majority of Congressional Republicans opposed it. The NRA was our opponent, but guess what? We defeated them, and we’re going to defeat them once more.
As the audience cheered, Biden screamed, “But we’re not stopping here. I’m committed to making assault weapons illegal in our nation. Determined.”
I’ve done it before, and I’ll do it again, he continued.
According to a Breitbart News story from August 26, Biden promised that “assault weapons” would be outlawed if Democrats won two Senate seats in the next election.
According to data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), there are more AR/AK-style rifles owned than there are Ford F-Series pickup trucks, according to Breitbart News on July 21, 2202.
According to a press statement from the NSSF that was supplied to Breitbart News, there are currently 24,446,000 AR/AK-style weapons in use.
Democrats support gun control because they believe that removing people’s right to keep and bear arms is the only way to end gun violence. They think that if weapons are prohibited, only outlaws will own them, which will make it more difficult for them to conduct crimes. The truth is that restricting access to firearms does not reduce gun violence.
