There is no denying that the Democratic Party has to play the part of the anti-Second Amendment goons in order to keep the far left voters in their pockets, but some of the kooky things that are coming out of their mouths these days are simply astounding.
Take President Joe Biden, for instance, who this week suggested that he’d like to get rid of so-called “assault” weapons.
When President Joe Biden speaks about the “scourge” of gun violence, his go-to answer is to zero in on assault weapons.
America has heard it hundreds of times, including this week after shootings in Colorado and Virginia: The president wants to sign into law a ban on high-powered guns that have the capacity to kill many people very quickly.
“The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick,” Biden said on Thanksgiving Day.
After the mass killing last Saturday at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, he said in a statement: “When will we decide we’ve had enough? … We need to enact an assault weapons ban to get weapons of war off America’s streets.”
The suggestion will have guns rights activists fuming, as the idea of eliminating these sort of rifles essentially neuters the Second Amendment wholesale.
