Joe Biden is using the recent shooting in Colorado to push for greater gun control.
This is completely stupid, not to mention utterly tone deaf.
Crime is still a huge problem. Many police departments are still underfunded and even understaffed. People need to be able to protect themselves.
FOX News reports:
Biden calls for more gun control before GOP takes House, says ‘sick’ to allow semi-automatic weapon sales
President Biden said on Thursday that he would push Congress to enact new gun control laws before Republicans took control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January.
Biden told reporters during a press event in Nantucket, Massachusetts that the recent shooting at an LGBT nightclub in Colorado had reinforced the need to pass an assault weapons ban.
“The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick,” said Biden. “It has no socially redeeming value… Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.”
Semi-automatic guns, including handguns and rifles, fire one bullet for each pull of the trigger.
Biden said he would push federal lawmakers to enact a new assault weapons ban before January when the next Congress took office and Republicans gained control of the House.
“I’m going to try,” said the president. “I’m going to try to get rid of assault weapons.”

Is this the president's new position? This policy would ban the sale of most firearms in the country. https://t.co/2j56Hz68dY

Biden cannot be allowed to do this.
He wants to tak away the right of people to defend themselves.
