Today, February 14, is the third “anniversary” of the Parkland shooting. Not one to pass up an opportunity to “virtue signal,” Biden issued a statement calling on Congress to restrict gun ownership.
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 streetsJoe Biden.

Newsflash: background checks are already required for gun sales, and banning what he calls “assault weapons” is as futile as it was back in 1994 when the Congress passed a ban on them. They are not “weapons of war.” His statements are an obfuscation of the facts.
Last week, Biden met with gun control advocates Shannon Watts (Moms Demand Action) and John Feinblatt (Everytown for Gun Safety). He assured them that his administration was on deck to start his “ambitious” plan from the campaign. Those gun control entities are pushing forward for both legislative packages and executive orders…the Constitution be damned. They want to restrict gun ownership.
Never mind the people who do the mass shootings, just take their tools away and it will be all better. It will never work that way because criminals have different mindsets than the rest of us. And besides, if you disarm Americans, if you restrict gun ownership, they think there’s less chance we’ll rise up against that left-wing agenda. They are wrong. In fact, it’s how the American Revolution started: the British came after the Colonists’ guns.
Biden and his gun control buddies can legislate, complain, whine, and do whatever they want, but there is no way to remove guns from the criminal element. The only thing they will do is try to take guns away from law abiding citizens. And that’s their agenda, make no mistake.
Even the latest mass shooting didn’t use an AR – the suspect used a handgun. Punishing the many for the actions of a few is a poor method of attempting to save lives.
