As my colleague Nick Arama reported on Thursday, Biden once again lost what little mind he has left as he absurdly tried to build a case for banning the one firearm that lives rent-free, 24/7, in the tormented heads of gun grabbers, everywhere, the evil “weapon of war”: the made-up “assault rifle.”
While mumbling about the recent mass shooting at a Colorado LGBT club by a suspect we later learned self-identified as “non-binary,” which totally blew the left’s “right-wing” narrative out of the water, Biden said:
The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick. It has no socially redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.
Wait — “socially redeeming value”?
Assuming an accepted definition of “socially redeeming value” to mean the projects in which we invest our time, money, and efforts to bring some sort of positive benefit to society, what the hell does that have to do with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners to legally purchase firearms for the reasons they choose — be those choices protection, recreational, or any other legal use — and not by whether the federal government says which firearms one can buy and for what purposes?
Sorry, Joe — this is not a need thing; it’s a constitutionally-protected rights thing.
After a reporter asked Biden if he’d be able to make any (gun-control) movement in Congress before the GOP retakes the House majority on January 3, the gun-grabbing president vowed to try.
I’m going to try. I’m going to try to get rid of assault weapons.
Prominent Twitterers pointed out the implications of Biden’s latest threat, including Real Clear News reporter, Philip Wegmann:
Banning semi-automatic guns, as Biden proposes here, would make illegal an overwhelming number of rifles, pistols, and shotguns.
Biden might not know much, but I’ll go out on a safe limb and bet he knows every bit of Wengmann’s observation is correct; “informed” all gun grabbers do.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton asked the obvious question:
Wow. Are there any guns Biden would not ban?
The obvious answer is “No” — if Biden could get away with it.
And Breitbart Politics Editor Emma-Jo Morris pointed out the obvious truth about Biden’s silly “assault rifle” and “weapons of war” drivel: “He clearly doesn’t know what semi-auto is.”
Morris was right, of course, but here’s the Democrats’ dirty little non-secret secret: They don’t give a damn about the definition of semi-automatic or anything else; they want to ban law-abiding American citizens from legally purchasing as many types of firearms as they can get away with. Hence they exploit every high-profile shooting that comes down the pike, solely for that reason.
Except, of course, when it comes to the skyrocketing numbers of murders and other gun-related crimes in urban America, all we hear from Biden and Democrats, and the liberal media is crickets.
Why? Because those senseless killings don’t support any of the left’s warped narratives.
