President Biden is coming for Americans’ guns.
That at least seemed to be the message conveyed by a statement released by the White House on Sunday to mark the third anniversary of the Parkland shooting.
Biden cynically used the occasion as an opportunity to unveil his radical anti-second amendment agenda, including draconian bans on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ high capacity magazines as well as mandatory background checks for all firearms purchases.
As the statement from the White House reads:
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 streets. We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now.
It seems that those insisting during the campaign that Biden was actually a moderate were wrong, at least when it comes to Americans’ second amendment rights.
