Posted on 01/24/2023 12:24:14 PM PST by ChicagoConservative27
CLAIM: White house press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed the result of the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban was that “mass shootings went down.”
Jean-Pierre opened Tuesday’s press conference by talking about the mass shootings that have been occurring in California, the state that has more gun control than any other state in the Union.
Ironically, one of California’s gun controls is an “assault weapons” ban.
Nevertheless, Jean-Pierre pushed for an “assault weapons” ban at the federal level, saying, “The last time we had an ‘assault weapons’ ban on the books, thanks to the President and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) leadership, mass shootings actually went down.”

Take a look at this,
Also, the January 21 Monterey Park attacker used a pistol, and NBC Bay Area’s Christine Ni noted that the January 23 Half Moon Bay attacker appears to have used a handgun as well.
Cabbage Patch Kid writ large
What the assault rifle ban actually did was create a hot market in compact 9 mm and 45s. And lightweight concealable 357s. When you were restricted to 10 rounds, there was a cornucopia of small concealment guns.
In any case, it doesn’t matter what the effect was I have a right to it. And the more our government tilts towards tyranny, the more firmly I will hang onto it.
Press Corp is just as dumb not to cal her out..
The big name fact checkers quit once the Democrat Party seized control of government.
Why start being honest now? They lie, about everything, all the time.
This “woman” is nothing but a BS spewer. If she ever gets anything correct, it is by accident.
Karinge Jean-Pierre looks like Side show Bob to me. Although Bob was very intelligent, evil, but intelligent. KJP, not so much. Way over her skis.
During the joke of a ban, the same rifles were still for sale with modifications. A name change, removal of the flash suppressor and bayonet lug, 10 round magazine installed, fixed collapsible stock.
and still available all through the joke of a “ban”.
And if you knew where to look, you could find 30 round magazines stamped with “For Police Use Only” on them.
And there were millions of 20 round military surplus magazines everywhere.
So in light of recent SCOTUS rulings the AWB won’t fly. Now how can we apply that reasoning to the NFA 34 and GCA 68? There is a flaw in the “common use” test for firearms that have been banned for so long. If the M-16 rifles were surplused like the M-1 rifle was, they would certainly be “in common use”.
More people were murdered last year with hammers than so called ‘assault weapons’...
I bought lots of military surplus 30 round magazines during the ban.

Bidet is the most prolific liar ever in American politics, which now includes minion to spread his lies.
Cabbage Patch Barbie is dumb as a box of rocks...
Kringe lied, people died.
Somewhere in California, Paul Pelosi: "Ya hear that? Makes a lot of sense."
Nancy, between shots of booze: "Will you shut up?"

They can’t fool all the people all the time, but they can fool most of the people most of the time. And they do try.
