President Joe Biden and his Democratic supporters are attempting to implement an assault rifle ban during the lame-duck session before the next Congress is seated, which poses a threat to the Second Amendment of the United States of America.
On Thanksgiving, Biden reaffirmed his support for tighter gun control regulations, calling it absurd that red flag rules were not being applied nationwide.
“No. 2, the idea, we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. It’s just sick. It has no, no socially redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single, solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers,” Biden continued.
The president was then asked by a reporter if he would try to enact new gun legislation with the Republicans in charge of the House the following year. Biden replied that he would determine that when he counted votes.
Biden’s prospects of passing any gun control legislation will be dashed because the majority of House Republicans oppose such a measure.
While this was going on, Biden’s plan’s detractors pointed out its absurdity.
“So essentially all guns are on the Big Guy’s chopping block.” tweeted actor James Woods.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, exclaimed, “Wow. Are there any guns Biden would not ban?”
Gabriella Hoffman, a columnist for Townhall, also had opinions on the subject.
Them: Biden doesn’t support gun confiscation. You’re paranoid and opposed to sensible gun reforms and safety.— Gabriella Hoffman (@Gabby_Hoffman) November 24, 2022
Him: Assault weapons are semi-automatic and therefore should be banned because it’s sick people lawfully purchase them. https://t.co/c3IfQNB9HI
