During final night time’s CNN city corridor that hardly anybody tuned into watch, Joe Biden confirmed that the categories of firearms he needs to ban extends past so-called “assault weapons” to handguns too.
According to American Military News:
Biden stated that he’s “continuing to push to eliminate” 9mm handguns, as well as to rifles, which are ready to fireplace a number of rounds.
“I’m the only guy that ever got — passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” the president stated. “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, but I’m not likely to get that done in the near term,” Biden continued.
It was inevitable that the gun management crowd would ultimately publicly come for handguns, which they’ve lengthy needed to do anyway. The solely purpose that they ever centered their requires gun management on “assault” weapons is as a result of they’re conscious that the polling is extra favorable when it comes to bans on “scary” weapons. The latest nationwide violent crime would power Democrats to admit that defunding police departments final yr in main cities was an absurd concept, so weapons have gotten the scapegoat as soon as once more.
