Sleepy Joe Biden Wants To Ban Scary Looking Rifles Because It Totally Worked Last Time

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s time for Joe Biden to pander to the hard-left, apparently, on firearms. He never seemed to have a problem with his boss, Barack Obama, running over 2,500 firearms into Mexico during Operation Fast and Furious, which were involved in hundreds of Mexicans, including children, being wounded and killed, as well as used to kill to U.S. Border Patrol agents, and even showed up during a terrorist attack in Paris.

Banning Assault Weapons Works

We have a huge problem with guns. Assault weapons — military-style firearms designed to fire rapidly — are a threat to our national security, and we should treat them as such. Anyone who pretends there’s nothing we can do is lying — and holding that view should be disqualifying for anyone seeking to lead our country.

I know, because with Senator Dianne Feinstein I led the effort to enact the 1994 law that banned assault weapons and high-capacity magazines for 10 years. Those gun safety reforms made our nation demonstrably more secure.

I fought hard to extend the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines bans in 2004. The Republicans who allowed these laws to expire asserted that they were ineffective. But, almost 15 years after the bans expired, with the unfortunate benefit of hindsight, we now know that they did make a difference.

Many police departments have reported an increase in criminals using assault weapons since 2004. And multiple analyses of the data around mass shootings provide evidence that, from 1994 to 2004, the years when assault weapons and high-capacity magazines were banned, there were fewer mass shootings — fewer deaths, fewer families needlessly destroyed.

The ban was a failure. It didn’t reduce crime. It didn’t reduce shootings. All it caused to happen was that law abiding citizens couldn’t purchase a weapon that was lighter and easier to use than a standard rifles which had the exact same rate of fire and used the same round. And those non-scary looking rifles were used more often by criminals in crimes.

We have to get these weapons of war off our streets.

Gotta get those talking points in.

And if I am elected president, we’re going to pass them again — and this time, we’ll make them even stronger. We’re going to stop gun manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor modifications to their products — modifications that leave them just as deadly. And this time, we’re going to pair it with a buyback program to get as many assault weapons off our streets as possible as quickly as possible.

He doesn’t explicitly state it, but, that sure looks like he plans on banning people who currently own them from having them, does it not? Why else have a “buyback”? Because most owners will not sell them back, unless they are old and worn out, and they want the money to get a new rifle. I’ll believe Joe is serious when he forces the law enforcement that protects him and other elected officials to stop carrying real weapons of war, since they often have ones which you and I cannot have, including automatic rifles.

I won’t stop there. I’ll get universal background checks passed, building on the Brady Bill, which establishing the background check system and which I helped push through Congress in 1993. I’ll accelerate the development and deployment of smart-gun technology — something gun manufacturers have opposed — so that guns are keyed to the individual biometrics of authorized owners.

Most of these mass shooters passed a background check, excepting those who are running around the streets of Democratic Party run cities with gun control that disarms law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves while doing nothing about the actual criminals. So, won’t make a difference. Joe should arm his security detail with smart guns. They’ll be thrilled with the .22 caliber ones, right? Perhaps he should talk to NJ, which stalled development.

This is all about pushing the emotionalism to grab guns and making it harder for law abiding citizens to engage in their Constitutional right, particularly those who want to protect themselves. None of this effects criminals in the least. Why is it that Democrats always want to punish people who had nothing to do with a crime?

(Red State) What’s worse, in the greater scheme of things, rifles as a category of weapons, used in the commission of a murder constituted just 403 out of a total 15,129 according to the 2017 DOJ/FBO Uniform Crime Report (UCR). That’s 2.67 percent. One study claims that semi-automatic rifles were used in just 25 percent of mass shootings.

According to the UCR the following instruments were used more often to kill people than rifles of any type: Knives (1,591); Blunt objects, hammers, bats etc (467); and finally, Hands/Fists & Feet (696).

One more little data point. There are somewhere between 15 and 20 million Modern Sporting Rifles in America. Using the low number and assuming for the sake of argument that all the rifles in the 2017 UCR were Modern Sporting Rifles, 403 divided by 15 million means that less than 3 thousandths of a percent of the Modern Sporting Rifles in these United States, were used in the commission of a murder.

Yeah, but gun grabbers gotta gun grab.
