Biden Targets Guns And Gun Owners In State Of The Union Speech—Again

In a contentious state-of-the-union address punctuated with shouting and lies, President Joe Biden on Thursday once again promised to push a number of schemes to curtail the rights of America’s law-abiding gun owners. And, of course, he once again said none of the proposals he supports would hurt gun owners.

“None of this violates the Second Amendment or vilifies responsible gun owners,” he insisted.

While it’s likely the gun issue will take a backseat to the economy and the border in this year’s presidential election, Biden nevertheless continued to push for banning popular semi-auto rifles owned by millions of lawful Americans and standard-capacity magazines used in those guns and many others. Both would, of course, violate the Second Amendment and vilify responsible gun owners.

“I’m demanding a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” Biden said during the speech. Thankfully, this time the speech writer forgot to put the “deer don’t wear Kevlar vests” line in the speech, a point the president has lamely made many times in the past.

He also called for so-called “universal” background checks. As most gun owners know, that’s a code phrase for a backdoor gun registry, something that violates current federal law but Biden has pushed for since his first day in the White House.

Of course, Biden’s gun-ban cronies from a number of anti-gun organizations were thrilled with his emphasis on what they call “gun safety,” but is actually anti-gun measures.

“It’s no surprise that President Biden made gun safety a priority in his address, because he’s made it a priority for his Administration from day one,” said John Feinblatt, president of so-called Everytown for Gun Safety. “Everytown is going all out to reelect the strongest gun safety administration in history and protect the lifesaving progress we’ve made.”

The organization Moms Demand Action was equally impressed with the nonsensical speech.

“President Biden and his administration have done more to address our country’s gun violence crisis than any other presidential administration in history,” said Angela Ferrel-Zabala, executive director of Moms Demand Actin. “And tonight only further emphasized their commitment to gun safety. Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action are going to do everything in our power to ensure that we have four more years with the Biden-Harris administration to deliver gun safety to the American people.”

On the other side of the now two-man presidential race, former President Donald Trump has already vowed to undo whatever gun-control measures Biden manages to put into effect during the remainder of his term.

“Every single Biden attack on gun owners and manufacturers will be terminated my very first week back in office,” Trump said in a recent speech at the Great American Outdoor Show in Pennsylvania.

 

Editor’s Note: If you’re having trouble falling asleep and need something to make you drowsy or if you want to go to the other end of the mental spectrum and get pissed off and feel angry (yeah, some of us old dudes oddly seem to enjoy that) then we’ve got the full nearly two-hour video posted below. Or, maybe you think President Biden is the best thing since sliced bread (as he actually was born only 14 years after the creation of sliced bread) and will enjoy listening to him paint his admin’s failures as successes. Watch at your own risk. TTAG takes no responsibility for how this video will make you feel after watching.
