Joe Biden Seizes Opportunity For Sweeping Gun Changes

Democrat Joe Biden seized onto the publicity of one of the Democrat party’s greatest opportunity to shape public opinion about gun ownership, the anniversary of a school shooting, to demand what gun owners are likely to see as oppressive gun regulations.

Democrats rely upon pushing their anti-gun agenda when Americans are preoccupied or involved in the aftermath of a mass shooting. Sunday, the American people are both reoccupied and faced with the Democrat’s observance of a high profile shooting incidence.

“I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden wrote to Congress on Sunday.

WHAT PEOPLE FEAR THE MOST IS WHAT BIDEN IS NOT TALKING ABOUT

In the statement, Biden’s call for “banning assault weapons” likely amounts to calling for a ban on semi-automatic firearms, and there was no language included in the statement about allowing gun owners who currently own those weapons to be able to keep those weapons. If gun owners are not allowed to keep those specific semi-automatic firearms under a Biden ban, that would effectively amount to a mandatory gun confiscation-type program.

“I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden said in a statement issued by the White House.

We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now, he said.

What Gun owners are concerned about:

1) Every state already has background checks.

2) An AR-15 is not an assault weapon.

3) Over 90% of gun violence is committed with handguns, so banning “assault weapons” doesn’t solve anything. They want a national gun registry to make them easier to confiscate.

Biden’s statement marked the three-year anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Full Statement from the White House:

Three years ago today, a lone gunman took the lives of 14 students and three educators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In seconds, the lives of dozens of families, and the life of an American community, were changed forever.

For three years now, the Parkland families have spent birthdays and holidays without their loved ones. They’ve missed out on the experience of sending their children off to college or seeing them on their first job after high school. Like far too many families, they’ve had to bury pieces of their soul deep within the Earth. Like far too many families — and, indeed, like our nation — they’ve been left to wonder whether things would ever be okay.

These families are not alone. In big cities and small towns. In schools and shopping malls. In churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples. In movie theaters and concert halls. On city street corners, that will never get a mention on the evening news. All across our nation, parents, spouses, children, siblings, and friends have known the pain of losing a loved one to gun violence. And in this season of so much loss, last year’s historic increase in homicides across America, including the gun violence disproportionately devastating Black and Brown individuals in our cities, has added to the number of empty seats at our kitchen tables. Today, as we mourn with the Parkland community, we mourn for all who have lost loved ones to gun violence.

Over these three years, the Parkland families have taught all of us something profound. Time and again, they have shown us how we can turn our grief into purpose – to march, organize, and build a strong, inclusive, and durable movement for change.

The Parkland students and so many other young people across the country who have experienced gun violence are carrying forward the history of the American journey. It is a history written by young people in each generation who challenged prevailing dogma to demand a simple truth: we can do better. And we will.

This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer. Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets. We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now.”

If Biden and his administration can’t respect and manage our country according to the constitution, then they need to be impeached.
Freedom of speech, freedom to own guns in fact freedom as our forefathers meant for us to have. Politician’s in the United States are not elected to control we the people but rather to work for us with the constitution being their playbook.

Jon doe

They just hate America so bad .
Take freedom of SPEECH
Take our gun rights
Then only criminals and democrats will have control or wait is there a difference 🤔

First of all nobody died at sandy hook the building was scheduled for demolition the kids that were have supposed to have died were seen at the super bowl. second I have doubts about Parkland as there were no obituaries these fake shootings are people hired by the democrats to steel our rights as far as I’m concerned there is only one gun law the second amendment we need to take back our free republic read the Declaration of Independence the power is in the people we have the right to alter or abolish ANY destructive government!!!

You want a Civil War? This is how you get a Civil War…..

leave it to Xiden to lump responsible gun owners in with terrorists

Biden and all will word the weapons “semiautomatic to strategically set up the future move to BAN ALL guns that are semiautomatic- not just the ones they initially target. The statistics do not support their narrative nor their biased reporting – but they never let the facts get in the way of their agenda, or get in the way of an emotional good story.

No matter what the SOB doesn’t understand English.

me and you

He wants to take guns from all lawabiding citizens who will never harm anyone.while they’re at take away the armed protection all around the royalty in DC. Leave them like all citizens will be if they have their way. The murderers in this country equal out to be a very tiny amount less than 1/8 th of 1%. 99.9%will lose.

janina

since all the mass shooting were done by democrats . why not just keep democrats from owning guns ? now that is common since gun laws ! the only thing that will happen is a civil war if you think Americans will give up their guns ! but then that is what the democrats want. they call Trump supporters terrorist but not BLM or ANTIFA who went around all summer burning down cities and the acting president and VP were telling them to keep it up , dont stop ! democrats are down right EVIL communist people we can not let them stay in office and destroy America or our constitution !

Surely impeachment rears its head yet again. For real.
