Not seconds after the latest mass shooting did Joe Biden and the Democrats propose radical gun control legislation that would seriously infringe on Second Amendment right granted to U.S. citizens in the Constitution.
On Thursday, Joe Biden appeared in primetime to address the nation about gun violence by proposing a series of measures he urged Congress to address.
The cognitively deficient President proposed a federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, arguing that the expiration of these provisions led to an increase in mass shootings. Again, not factual whatsoever.
The age at which certain weapons could be purchased should go up, he said, adding that immunity for gun manufacturers should also be lifted. Safe storage should be required, and background checks should be expanded, Biden continued.
“Enough,” Biden whispered before claiming guns were “the leading killer of children.”
🧡@POTUS just delivered an extremely passionate speech and a call to action for gun safety laws. We must demand Congress do something about the gun violence epidemic that is killing more of our kids than anything else.

“This isn’t about taking away guns or vilifying gun owners,” Biden continued, adding that the Second Amendment is “not absolute.” While he said “responsible” gun owners had little to fear from his proposals, he identified no new executive actions and repeated his endorsement of most major Democratic gun control bills.
The administration has found that its options to use executive power are limited. Legislation is also complicated by the fact that the Senate is evenly divided. Any bill would be subject to the 60-vote filibuster threshold, requiring at least 10 Republicans to vote for it, and some proposals could not garner a simple majority in the chamber.
But bipartisan gun negotiations have been taking place in the Senate. Multiple RINO Senators, like Sens. Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell, have voiced their support for Joe Biden’s gun control measures.
I stand ready to vote on ALL the proposals mentioned by President Biden tonight and encourage the Democratic Leader to bring them forward for votes.

Earlier on Thursday, the Democratic-controlled House advanced major gun control legislation, which Biden celebrated before urging Republicans to get on board.
“My God, the fact is the majority of the Senate Republicans don’t want any of these proposals even to be debated,” Biden said.

Red flag laws empowering law enforcement to confiscate firearms temporarily from individuals exhibiting suspicious behaviors have emerged as a policy that could receive bipartisan support. Biden called for their enactment on a federal basis Thursday night.
The president had previously called for the return of the assault weapons ban, which he helped pass as part of the 1994 crime bill during his time in the Senate. The ban lapsed under former President George W. Bush, and subsequent Democratic majorities have done little to revive it.
Biden repeatedly used imagery of children smeared with blood in classrooms and grieving families, hoping the emotional pull would overcome his low job approval ratings as he tried to use the bully pulpit to get gun legislation across the finish line.
This will likely have the opposite effect for Democrats as they continue to exploit the death of children to push their political agenda.
