Biden Pushes ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban in Buffalo Speech

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

President Joe Biden spoke in Buffalo Tuesday and pushed for an “assault weapons” ban in the wake of Saturday’s shooting, which killed ten people.

Biden said, “We can keep assault weapons off our streets. We’ve done it before. I did it when we passed the crime bill last time. And violence went down. Shooting went down.” 

Biden was referencing the 1994 federal “assault weapons” ban when he talked about having banned such firearms before. That ban was in place from 1994 to 2004, and contrary to Biden’s claims of reduced violence, the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) released a report showing the negligible impact of the ban — negligible at best.

Breitbart News pointed out that The Washington Times in 2004 quoted the soon-to-be-released NIJ report, authored by University of Pennsylvania professor Christopher Koper: “We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”

The NIJ report continued, “The ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”

The report put matters into perspective by pointing out that “assault weapons” were “rarely used in gun crimes even before the ban.”

Bloomberg correspondent Jordan Fabian tweeted Tuesday that Biden admitted his push for control is an uphill battle:

  1. I could GAF about any other country or their gun laws but

    Switzerland has a stunningly high rate of gun ownership , and probably why it doesn’t have a bunch of mass shootings is because they don’t have the CIA ..or FBI

    food for thought

      1. Thanks for the education
        Quite a bit different than I believed
        But
        My comment meaning about our country’s problem with our CIA and FBI still stands as one of this county’s biggest problems when it comes them killing us and trying to regulate our second article right through fear tactics

        1. I completely understand and thought you might like reading that. No way in hell will those bastards ever get mine. My toy box is closed to that traitor trash. We for sure think alike about many things.

    1. On a side-note… “Neutral” Switzerland is cozying up to NATO. Well, it is one of the favorite spots for the ultra-rich to hide their money.

      .

  2. Wow! The President visits Buffalo, NY. No one visits Buffalo. No one wants to visit Buffalo because the city is a joke. Everyone wants to runaway from Buffalo, yet these goofballs think banning guns in Buffalo (a city that literally has like 1 gun club that I knew of growing up there all my life) will accomplish or make a difference for the rest of the country. Talk about grasping at straws. The people there would rather sell their food stamps for a football game than to go around shooting people.

    And nothing says false flag shooting when the President actually comes to make a speech about it. It was all planned and organized well ahead of time.

    No one believes their sh*t anymore and quite frankly, I don’t think no one in Buffalo gives a sh*t. I just talked to my brother on the phone who still lives there. For such a big story, he never once mentioned it when we were talking. So as I said, they’re wasting their time as NO ONE GIVES A SH*T!

    Go find your way back into the White House, Joey! It’ll at least get some part of your brain working for awhile. Maybe you’ll find an ice cream cart on the way.

  3. Talk talk talk.
    Fact of the matter is congress (albeit a fraud) makes laws and since they won’t (they just vote to send “money” to kikes) stfu.

    Too bad COVID wasn’t real and these cnuts didn’t die from it.
