Biden Tries to “Drop Bomb” on GOP

3

President Joe Biden indicated Tuesday that “right-wing” Americans who support the Second Amendment are shooting at law enforcement.

The president detailed his frustrations with Americans who supported the right to own semi-automatic weapons during a speech on fighting crime in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

“For those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country you need an F-15, you need something a little more than a gun,” he said and added, “No. I’m not joking.”

“Who are they shooting at? They’re shooting at these guys behind me,” he continued, referring to law enforcement, who were securing the president.

Biden insisted he was not against the Second Amendment, noting he had two shotguns at home.

“You know we live in a country awash in weapons of war,” he complained, promising to ban so-called “assault weapons” in the United States.

The president began shouting about the dangers of semi-automatic weapons such as AR-15s.

“What the hell’s the matter with us?” he shouted. “No, I’m not jokin’. Think about it. What are we doin’?”

He again falsely claimed that Americans could not go out and purchase a cannon and repeated his assertion that guns like AR-15s were not needed for activities like hunting.

“How many deer or bears are wearing Kevlar vests huh?” he asked. “Not a joke.”

Biden created a political litmus test on the proposal to ban “assault” weapons.

“It’s time to hold every elected official’s feet to the fire and ask them: ‘Are you for banning assault weapons or not?’” he said. “Ask them. If the answer is no, vote against them.”

    It is NOT conservative Americans that are shooting at police. Not MAGA, nor is it NRA members. If one would actually do some research, they would find that the vast majority of mass-shooters hold more leftist views.

    There are no such thing as ‘Assault Rifles’. AR stands for Armalite Rifle – the designer; It does NOT stand for Assault Rifle. Assault Rifle is a made-up buzzword term by the media to make it sound scary and dangerous.

    Semi-automatic rifles have been around for well over a hundred years. My father used one made in 1910 to hunt deer in the woods of Upper Michigan back in the 1940s. In fact, there was a line of Winchester Self-Loading rifles in three calibers: 32WSL, 351WSL and 401WSL, introduced in 1905, 1907, and 1910 respectively. The Win 1907 (351WSL) was a popular choice with prison guards in the 1920s, 30s and 40s., and was also used by law enforcement to put an end to Bonnie & Clyde!

    Just about ANY hunting rifle caliber can penetrate a so-called ‘bulletproof vest’, not just AR-15s. The vests that law enforcement wear are only effective for protection against handguns.

    The REAL question is to ask why is it only recently that these mass shootings have been a problem. Rather than looking at the tool used, look at the person or persons behind the shootings. What brought them to the point where they thought killing innocents was somehow a reasonable solution? Could it be the mind-altering psychotropic drugs that most were taking? Xanax, Prozac, Ambien, Celexa, Effexor, Ritalin… ALL of those drugs list potential side-effects that can affect rational thought.
