Go away, Biden. I’m keeping my AR-15.
I’m going to bite my tongue because I like my boss and job.
The Bill of Rights outlines our rights given to us by our Creator whether you think our creator is God, Mother Nature, or a Spaghetti Monster.
Biden is going after our guns. He says he’s not but he is going after our guns.
Give them an inch and they’ll go a mile.
These are your natural rights no matter what Brandon says:
For so many of you at home, I want to be very clear: This is not about taking away anyone’s guns. It’s about vili- — not about vilifying gum [sic] — gun owners. In fact, we believe we should be treating responsible gun owners as an example of how every gun owner should behave. I respect the culture and the tradition and the concerns of lawful gun owners.
At the same time, the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute. It was Jus- — it was Justice Scalia who wrote, and I quote, “Like most rights, the right…” — Second Amendment — the rights granted by the Second Amendment are “not unlimited.” Not unlimited. It never has been.
There have always been limitations on what weapons you can own in America. For example, machine guns have been federally regulated for nearly 90 years. And this is still a free country.
This isn’t about taking away anyone’s rights. It’s about protecting children. It’s about protecting families. It’s about protecting whole communities. It’s about protecting our freedoms to go to school, to a grocery store, and to a church without being shot and killed.
Then Biden had to make it sound like people who want our elected officials to respect our natural rights hate children:
For God’s sake, how much more carnage are we willing to accept? How many more innocent American lives must be taken before we say “enough”? Enough.
I know that we can’t prevent every tragedy. But here’s what I believe we have to do. Here’s what the overwhelming majority of the American people believe we must do. Here’s what the families in Buffalo and Uvalde, in Texas, told us we must do.
We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. And if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21. Strengthen background checks. Enact safe storage laws and red-flag laws. Repeal the immunity that protects gun manufacturers from liability. Address the mental health crisis deepening the trauma of gun violence and as a consequence of that violence.
What are these assault weapons? Where does one buy assault weapons? I didn’t realize I could bring my AR-15 into war.
Biden keeps lying:
These are rational, commonsense measures. And here’s what it all means. It all means this: We should reinstate the assault weapons ban and high-capacity magazines that we passed in 1994 with bipartisan support in Congress and the support of law enforcement. Nine categories of semi-automatic weapons were included in that ban, like AK-47s and AR-15s.
And in the 10 years it was law, mass shootings went down. But after Republicans let the law expire in 2004 and those weapons were allowed to be sold again, mass shootings tripled. Those are the facts.
Thank you, Katie Pavlich, for linking to a 2004 study that found no one could credit the 1994 ban for the “decrease in violence carried out with firearms.”
“We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence, based on indicators like the percentage of gun crimes resulting in death or the share of gunfire incidents resulting in injury,” the summary of the report on the study’s findings states. “The ban’s impact on gun violence is likely to be small at best, and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. AWs [assault weapons] were used in no more than 8% of gun crimes even before the ban.”
So Biden needs ten Republican senators to pass his gun-grabbing schemes. That won’t happen.
But the gun confiscating laws will likely pass the House since the Democrats have the majority.
The House Judiciary Committee passed the Protect Our Kids Act along party lines:
The legislation seeks to raise the legal age for purchasing semi-automatic centerfire rifles from 18 to 21 years old, create additional federal offenses for gun trafficking, and strengthen current gun laws by closing loopholes, which would be done by amending the definition of “manufactured firearms” to include using 3D printers to create guns, among other reforms, the committee’s Democrats said in a press release.
The majority of these shooters have the same traits: broken family, absent father, bullied, no family support system (like aunts, uncles, cousins), and portray all the signs of becoming a criminal.
How about as a society we tackle these issues instead of looking to the government?
