Posted on 05/17/2022 11:31:46 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
President Joe Biden spoke in Buffalo Tuesday and pushed for an “assault weapons” ban in the wake of Saturday’s shooting, which killed ten people.
Biden said, “We can keep assault weapons off our streets. We’ve done it before. I did it when we passed the crime bill last time. And violence went down. Shooting went down.”

Heard some excerpts of this speech being played by Dennis Prager earlier.
Quite frankly one of the most outrageous speeches ever given by an American politician. In the ashes of tragedy rather than trying to comfort a grieving community he fans the flames of division and slandering the nation he leads. Disgusting!
“Assault weapons” are military hardware; civilians don’t have them. We have “scary black rifles”, which no Assault Weapons Ban will solve,and shouldn’t. It’s not a gun violence problem; it’s a criminal violence problem, and once again, the FBI/BATF let another one (Buffalo shooter) slip thru the system’s checks, and commit a massacre.
Most people (the thinking ones) have learned that the President belongs to the “saying it makes it so!” club.
Pure BS lies…keep criminals off the street…
Women taking Joe Biden’s Shotgun Advice
Never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste
The deep-state and DNC wokesters have sent their vegetable up to Buffalo to read some words off a teleprompter.
1) He’s getting nowhere with it.
2) Crime did NOT go down. Shootings did NOT go down. In fact, it had ZERO effect.
3) It’s not gonna happen.
4) Screw you, Josef Stolen.
The primary reason we have a Second Amendment as detailed in Federalist 46 is to enable the citizenry to defend themselves against any external military aggression and as a firewall against a tyrannical government.
These morons try to hide the fact that we founded the US via a citzen armed insurrection against the Crown which was only made legal by defeating the Redcoats.
Just when was that Joe? Refresh my memory.
Open mouth...spew BS.
civilians don’t own assault weapons- they own semi automatics-
And drive-by bayonetings went down. - Joe Biden implied
“...At least 33 people have been shot, five fatally, in weekend violence across Chicago, police said...”
How about Chicago, Biden???? You think they ought to ban blacks???
[[and once again, the FBI/BATF let another one (Buffalo shooter) slip thru the system’s checks]]
Exactly- there isn’t a gun problem- there is a problem with those agencies NOT stopping violent criminals when they had them under surveillance (To be fair- they do strop a lot- but they let a number get through, likely for political reasons, and we end up with tragic situations - )
Only 821 people watched this!
Not going to happen, democrats couldn’t get 50 votes in the Senate let alone the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster, and even if the somehow managed to use some political shenanigans to do so it would immediately be struck down by some conservative Trump Judge somewhere.
Isn’t any gun - along with numerous other implements - a potential ‘assault weapon’?
The phrase seems meaningless.
Go to Chicago and preach this “solution” to blacks...
