Joe Biden held a meeting at the White House on Monday to discuss the issue of rising crime, which is ironic given the fact that it is Democrat policies in Democrat-run cities that have led us to this point.
Naturally, Biden put pretty much all the blame on guns.

Biden pitches crime plan to local leaders amid wave of gun violence
President Joe Biden on Monday met with a group of law enforcement officials, community groups and state and local leaders, including New York City Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams, to discuss his plan to address a nationwide surge in violent crime.
During the meeting at the White House, Biden encouraged communities to use the $350 billion for states included in the Covid-19 relief plan passed by Congress in March to hire police officers and put in place new crime prevention programs, and said he wanted to hear from local leaders directly about what the federal government can do.
“Most of my career has been dealing with this issue — it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach,” Biden said.
The meeting comes amid a rise in gun violence over the past few years. One of Biden’s weakest areas in recent polling has been his handling of crime, with just 38 percent of people approving of the job he is doing in that area and 48 percent disapproving, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released this month.

Some people on Twitter called out the press for failing to ask Biden about his own son’s gun violation.
Like lying on a federal background check is a federal offense unless your dad is Joe Biden then we're good amirite? https://t.co/ofPxdv7sBX

His son does hardcore drugs and lied on his form 4473. That’s a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Put him away or shut up. https://t.co/XluBGKPw51

Did a single reporter ask the President about his son obtaining a gun license illegally? https://t.co/tE6FXAmUcH

Joe Biden will never be asked about this by the press.
Trump would, but Biden will get a pass.
