Biden Lets Another One Slip Out: “Ban Semi-Autos.”



Seems ol’ Joe trusted the wrong anti-gun comment.

Someone get the Pampers: Joe Biden has suffered another containment failure.

Uh-oh! President Joe Biden seems to have made a little accident. It’s only to be expected when you’re trying to housebreak a gun-grabber. After a lifetime of being swaddled cozily in the soft cotton batting of a mainstream press that will happily absorb all your blue-colored mistakes, it’s hard to start holding them in. Sooner or later, one’s going to sneak out … and rubbing the President’s nose in it seems to have the opposite of the desired effect.

The latest steamy little coil of anti-gun commentary that made its way past the presidential Pampers is particularly revealing: According to our toddler-in-chief, semi-automatic firearms have “no redeeming social value.” His press secretary is busy trying to claim that he didn’t say what we all heard him say, and that the smell isn’t what we think it is, but the proof is in the pudding (which is, in turn, in the President’s pants). For a far more polite and less scatological analysis, we’re turning it over to the National Shooting Sports Foundation‘s Larry Keane. Take it away, Larry!

The White House experienced another case of “clean up on aisle 1600” after President Joe Biden declared unambiguously that all semiautomatic firearms have, “no redeeming social value.”

After being asked about the recent murders of innocent Americans at the hands of deranged individuals in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Chesapeake, Va., the president added, “Zero. None. Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was forced to walk back the president’s remarks with record speed.

Ban ‘Em All

President Biden’s Freudian firearm slip isn’t surprising. He frequently boasts of his record of “taking on” the gun industry before and “winning.” That’s referencing the 1994 ban on so-called assault weapons that then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) supported. In 2019, then-presidential candidate Biden was asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his true gun control intentions.

“To gun owners out there who say a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns…” Cooper began. “Bingo!” President Biden interrupted. “You’re right, if you have an assault weapon … The fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Period.”

Fast forward a couple years and the president expanded his wish list of banned firearms to include one of the most popular selling handgun calibers among law-abiding firearm owners – the 9 mm.

“The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9 mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous,” President Biden told supporters. “I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things.”

It comes as no surprise then that when asked by media following the tragic murders in Colorado and Virginia, the president vocalized his true beliefs. He wants to ban semiautomatic firearms, including America’s most popular selling centerfire rifle and most popular selling handguns. He throws them all under the umbrella of “weapons of war.”

Walk-Back Whiplash

At the earliest White House press briefing following the president’s remarks, Karine Jean-Pierre, The White House press secretary, was asked to clarify and she walked it back.

“No. He was talking about, talking about assault weapons,” Jean-Pierre said. “That’s what he was talking about when asked that question.”

There was no follow up to ask Jean-Pierre how the president differentiates between semiautomatic rifles like he wants to ban and semiautomatic pistols as he’s included before. The administration – and gun control advocates across the board – would likely be tongue-tied in their attempts to define what they mean by so-called “assault weapons,” or Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs). The truth is it’s the same one-trigger-pull, one-fire technology that’s been around for more than a century, whether a handgun, a rifle or even several varieties of hunting and recreational shotguns.

It’s the same definition trouble President Biden’s failed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) director nominee and gun control lobbyist David Chipman fumbled through during his confirmation hearing when he struggled to answer the question before finally admitting, “Senator, there’s no way I could define an assault weapon.” President Biden can’t define it, The White House can’t define it and Congressional Democrats who continue to push for stricter gun control can’t define it either.

Time Running Out

There are more than 24 million commonly-owned, lawfully-purchased MSRs in circulation today, according to NSSF firearm industry data. Law-abiding Americans own many more times that number of 9 mm handguns and according to industry data the gun-owning community has never been more diverse than it is now, with women and minorities leading the buying spree over the past few years.

President Biden can thank himself for the growing number of Americans legally buying firearms. In fact, the same number of Americans bought firearms during the first twelve-months of the Biden presidency alone than did during the first years combined of Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

With Congress returning to Washington, D.C., President Biden has upped his calls for his new “assault weapons” ban but the door is almost shut. Republicans won back control of the U.S. House of Representatives and will take the majority once the new session begins in January. U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) admitted there aren’t even enough Democratic votes in the Senate to pass an MSR ban.

Gallup reported that Americans’ support for stricter gun control has dropped nine percent since June and their support for a ban on MSRs is below the 50 percent mark for the first time ever. President Biden continues to deny reality on his gun control ambitions – whether he “misspoke” or stated his true intentions.

    As long as there are political leaders who say (about his protesters) “can’t we just shoot them?” Not to kill but just in the legs or something “. I want access to the same firearms as our military. As long as we have a system in which the police can take said firearms and tell you that you can get them back only to find out that the ATF “can’t verify the location of your legal firearms” I’m not going to give up anything to anybody for any reason. I don’t trust either party. I believe that we are way over due (being that we the people do not have control over the government) to reinvent what our government stands for

    After being threatened by the US government to suffer consequences for not doing what they told me… mandated me… to do (taking a poisonous experimental drug)… you better believe I’m keeping every god damned gun, bullet and edged weapon that I legally own, and I won’t ever be afraid or hesitate to use them against the true enemy of We the People if they attack me.

    Mr. Berserker is about right. What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” do those people not understand or get. If you want my AR-15’s or AK-47 they can come and get them. I’ll give them back at 3000 fps. I am tried of of being told that I am not a good American because I will not back down any longer. USN RETIRED.

    Biden is the number one gun salesman in the country, two years running.

    Sadly if anyone has been paying attention to his swill all along he has pretty much always been anti-gun. Remember that he and many others saw the ’94 AWB as a necessary ‘first step’.
    My question is (asked on numerous forums) – exactly what was the origin for his hatred of guns. Something caused it but no one seems to know what. Perhaps a ‘real’ reporter should ask him.

    I would like to know where the photo of President Biden was published, in what publication. Can you authenticate that picture? Showing a picture of the President of the US walking around with a load in his pants should really be documented. I dislike the guy but I also think it’s only fair to be sure.

    Everybody who voted Democratic in the midterms has completely lost my respect. Biden and his like screwed up the country so let’s elect more of them. They gave proven to be as stupid as I have feared. That’s why I’m buying more semiprecious metals.

    I’ve commented many times before, when the Democrats-socialists bankrupt the domestic firearms industry, there will be no more domestic firearms for our police and military. That means that small arms will only be available from our sworn enemies, China and Russia and maybe Iran. To me, that makes the Democrat-Socialist Party a threat to National Security. My big question is where is the voice of the Republican Party or even the voice of those few conservatives? Are there too many RINO’s in the Republican Party? Are there so many sheeple out there that some one like Fetterman gets elected or is there so much election fraud?

    I think it’s time Gun Owners take a firm stand and draw a line in the sand over this issue. It’s past time that we stop letting Tin Pot Dictators like Joe “McSniffy Schitz-His-Pants” Biden dictate what we can/cannot own. The 2nd Amendment isn’t a suggestion. It very plainly states that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” That means any Law, Proclamation, Ordinance, Order, or Executive Action by any member of the Government, that restricts, impedes or prevents American Citizens from exercising their Right to Keep and Bear Arms, is illegal.
    Quite frankly, there are not enough Military and Law Enforcement personnel, local State and Federal to prevent over 100,000,000 Americans from removing any and all would be Tyrants from office. Even with your F16’s and Nukes Threat Joe. Pull that stunt, and all bets are off.
