WASHINGTON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden on Wednesday renewed vows to secure a new ban on assault weapons in the United States as he turns up heat on lawmakers to pass legislation before his party loses control of Congress next month.
Lawmakers have shown little inclination to outlaw assault weapons since a ban on high-capacity firearms expired in 2004, but Biden is hoping to seize on outrage about the regularity of shootings to lead to greater pressure on them to change their mind.
"We did it before," Biden said of the ban at a vigil for victims of gun violence at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Washington. "We did it, and guess what? It worked ... We can do it again."

However, there are four more days that the House is in session this year. The odds are very slim.
But can you take them? 🤔
This pants crapping retard can’t even define what assault weapons are.
I will not be lectured about my right to keep and bear arms by a senile traitor that armed ISIS and the Taliban with actual “weapons of war”.
They want to disarm us so they can do to us things we would not tolerate if we were armed.
Does he even know he’s president?! Probably not.
“This pants crapping retard can’t even define what assault weapons are.”
that’s easy...an assault weapon is any device that can efficiently be used to resist government tyranny
I have a feeling they think an “assault weapon” is anything that can hold more than zero rounds.
Time enough for another shoot-em up or two to make the news.
It’s just his Puppeteer’s talking
It’s harder for the government to murder armed citizens. The most prolific murderers in history have always been governments against their own citizens. Biden envies that
Never underestimate dims. They already have the legislation written. They only need to find four turncoats to join them. Romney. murkowski. Collins. Tillis.
Welcome to the Banana Republic of America.
It has already passed the house, they just need Senate approval
Too bad about 40% of the country has yet to figure this out.
Lets KEEP Assault Weapons and BAN DEMOCRATS!!!!
+1 who’s filled his Huggies AGAIN!
And they can and will get it.
