Biden demands gun control

Conservative TreehouseWith barely more than a third of the country supporting the installed occupant of the White House, Joe Biden took to the podium tonight to demand a litany of new gun restrictions. Biden called for the banning of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines through reinstating the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban, noting that if that can’t happen, the government should raise the legal age to purchase such weapons from 18 to 21.

Biden also called on congress to construct new federal background checks, which sounded a lot like a federal registration of gun ownership. Also, he is demanding “red flag” laws that will allow schools, counsellors, doctors and others to flag an individual as a threat to themselves or others, thereby removing their right to gun ownership. Biden also said he want’s congress to ban large capacity magazines limiting all firearms to five bullets.

Biden basically wants whatever gun control he can get, regardless of the fact that none of it would do a damn thing to stop any of the recent mas shootings, or really, any mass shootings at all. What he really wants is a political victory for his base before the midterms. And McConnell, by ordering Cornyn to negotiate, seems prepared to give Biden that victory.
