Presidential hopeful and one of gun rights supporters greatest enemies, Joe Biden, spoke out on Labor Day about gun violence following the recent shootings in Texas. To which, the NRA had some choice words and made Biden look silly yet again.
As one story covering the latest statement from Joe Biden reported, he is calling for a ban on magazines holding more than one round! Yes, you heard that correctly. Where to begin?
Let’s start with the fact that this latest Biden conference is coming on the heels of some recent mass shootings in Texas. We already know that hopeful Joe will say almost anything to get elected, so how apropos that he would speak on an issue that strikes a chord with many this week? Moving on…
Then there is this whole thing where Joe has no idea what he is talking about regarding the issues that question any credibility (which is zero) he has on gun violence resolution. The issue with Joe and anything to do with guns is that he apparently knows little-to-nothing about guns. It is difficult to swallow medicine when it is given by someone who has no idea what they are doing. Seemingly, Mr. Biden knows that guns go bang, they have the potential to hurt people and that there are guns that can shoot more than once without reloading.
Okay, that might be an exaggeration but maybe not as far-fetched as you might think. In response to Biden’s call on magazines that can hold more than one round (it is hard enough to say that with a straight face), the NRA had some very pointed words for the Presidential hopeful and leading Democratic candidate. As our aforementioned story reported, the NRA release this comment. “Joe wants to ban “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” and said that doing so is “no violation of #2A. He knows NOTHING about firearms or 2A. In June, he claimed to have gotten “the number of clips in a gun banned. Joe is an embarrassment.”
If those words sounded a bit harsh (and they were), don’t forget that there is no love lost between Biden and the NRA. Biden even bragged about taking on and beating the NRA, citing the 1994 “assault weapons” ban. He boasted about how he was able to push legislation that “limited the number of bullets in a clip.” So no, this isn’t a cordial relationship, this is heated.
But that is probably because the NRA like many, realize the threat that people and especially leaders like Biden pose. That threat is even more frustrating when it comes from sources and people so ignorant to the facts and that lack real knowledge about what they are talking about. Like guns.
It wasn’t that long ago that Mr. Biden was reportedly saying that guns should have a lock and unlocking feature, like smartphones. Seriously, we can’t make this stuff up.
Now, back to Joe’s call for a ban on magazines that hold more than one round… which is every magazine ever made. If it wasn’t for the fact that this man is a leading Democratic candidate and has some considerable backing, this would be a funny story. Unfortunately, because Biden somehow carries clout and voters, this is a very concerning story.
Perhaps if the Democrats had a few quality candidates to choose from, maybe this is just a matter of Biden being one of the best the Democrats have by default. It is just hard to grasp how someone who is in such a position of leadership can be so ignorant. It isn’t that we all don’t have areas we are uneducated on, we do. We just don’t make it a habit of talking about things we know little about. That is unless you are Joe Biden, NRA-slayer and gun control guru.
While the President and many Republican leaders are looking for new answers to the gun violence issue in America, the Democrats are still offering more of the same. More gun legislation, more bans, and more gun control – even if they have no clue what they are talking about.
