After taking time out of his attacks on Americans’ rights to spend their money on wars in other countries, and to raise their taxes with his new “Inflation Reduction Act,” Joe Biden is back at it, calling for infringements on the Second Amendment. The Daily Mail’s Morgan Phillips and Emily Goodin reported on a recent speech by Biden in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. They write:
The president also promised to ban assault-style rifles, harkening back to the 1994 ban that expired in 2004. ‘I’m determined to ban assault weapons in this country. Determined. I did it once and I’ll do it again,’ he told the crowd of more than 500 at Wilkes University.
Biden claimed that he has two shot guns at home and he is not against the Second Amendment.
‘We’re living in a country awash with weapons of war. Weapons that weren’t designed to hunt, they’re designed to take on an enemy,’ Biden said. ‘For God’s sake, what’s the rationale for these weapons outside of a war zone? They inflict severe damage.’
He quoted the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who said that Second Amendment rights were not unlimited.
Touting the bipartisan gun control bill from earlier this year, Biden celebrated that he had ‘beat the NRA.’
‘We beat the NRA. We took them on and we beat ’em straight up,’ Biden said. ‘You have no idea how intimidating they are to elected officials. The NRA was against it, which means a vast majority. The vast majority of Republicans in Congress couldn’t even stand up and vote for it.’
‘I don’t know any police officer that feels good about fact there might be a lousy cop. I’m tired of not giving them the help they need,’ Biden said
‘We took on NRA, we’re gonna take them on again. And we won and we will win again,’ he added.
Biden also took time out of his day to post a tweet reiterating his plan to take away Americans’ rights.
I am determined to ban assault weapons in this country.
I did it once before, and we will do it again.
