Biden Says He’s ‘Determined’ to Renew ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban
By Jack Phillips
July 11, 2022 Updated: July 11, 2022

President Joe Biden on Monday said he wants to implement a new ban on “assault weapons” as he touted the Safer Communities Act at the White House.

“We’re living in a country awash in weapons of war,” Biden said, apparently referring to AR-15-style rifles. “What is the rationale for these weapons outside war zones?”

“Assault weapons need to be banned,” Biden added as he signed the measure into law. “They were banned. I led the fight in 1994. And then under pressure from the [National Rifle Association] and the gun manufacturers and others, that ban was lifted in 2004.”

Suicides accounted for about 54 percent of all gun-related deaths in the United States in 2020, while 43 percent were murdered, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The other 3 percent were classified as gun-related deaths involving law enforcement, unintentional, or had undetermined circumstances.

In 2020, handguns were involved in 59 percent of all gun-involved murders, according to the FBI. Only 3 percent involved rifles, which includes firearms that are sometimes called “assault weapons,” and shotguns were involved in 1 percent of gun-related homicides. The other 36 percent involved other guns that were classified as “type not stated,” the data show.
More Regulations

On Monday, Biden also said he wants to ban “high-capacity magazines,” which generally refers to magazines that carry more than 10 rounds.

“I’m determined to ban these weapons again and high capacity magazines … I’m not going to stop until we do it,” added Biden, who backed the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.

Last month, 15 Republican senators joined all Democrats to pass the Safer Communities Act, which includes federal funding to enforce red flag laws, implements more stringent background checks for gun buyers between the age of 18 and 21, and makes obtaining guns through straw purchases a federal offense. The law also bars individuals from obtaining a firearm for at least five years if they’ve been convicted of a misdemeanor crime involving a domestic partner.

The NRA wrote that “make no mistake, behind the façade and the contrived talking points of safety, school security, and mental health, THIS IS A GUN CONTROL BILL,” adding that it “does little to truly address violent crime while opening the door to unnecessary burdens on the exercise of Second Amendment freedom by law-abiding gun owners.”

And Gun Owners of America, another pro-gun group, announced it “will challenge these unconstitutional laws in court to defend the rights of all Americans.”

Meanwhile, in order to reinstate the 1994 ban, Democrats will likely need 10 Republicans to vote with them to overcome the 60-vote threshold to advance most bills. No Republican senator has sought to reinstate that ban, which ended in 2004.

If what's ahead scares you & what's behind hurts you,look up; He never fails you.

If My people will humble themselves, pray, seek My face & turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven & will forgive their sin & heal their land. 2 Chron 7:14

I carry a gun because a cop is to heavy.

Average response time for a 911 call is 10 min.
Average response time for a .45acp is 900FPS.

Remember, if you're not pissing off a liberal......You are one!

For Biden administration guns(AR's) are just another climate change click bait. A useful tool to destroy the constitution and a create a socialist democracy country. If this really was about the safety of U.S. citizens, the border would be closed to prevent fentanyl from killing 100,000 Americans this year. Chicago crime would be a priority, instead of Chicago being used as an excuse to destroy the constitution. But democrats funded the Chinese pandemic, funded fentanyl and disease crossing our borders, funded weapons transfers into enemy's hands( Afghanistan, Ukraine), actively support world globalization/government. Believe that there should be no private ownership of property(no property rights). Stop voting these anti-American dumb----- into office.

Assault weapons were never banned. Only certain cosmetic features. He’s a lying idiot with dementia. Also the ban wasn’t lifted, when passed it was scheduled to sunset in 10 years. It was not renewed even though GW Bush said he would sign it if it came to his desk.
