Joe Biden finally went there.
Now the mask is off.
And Joe Biden admitted the one thing that left every Democrat sweating bullets.
Gun grabbers like Joe Biden always pretend like they respect the Second Amendment.
Anti-gun politicians know disarming the American people is politically toxic, so they dress up gun control as “reasonable” and in no way signifying a larger push for the government to seize every gun in America.
Walking that political tight rope is now impossible after Joe Biden laid the gun grabbers’ cards on the table.
Joe Biden pounced on the horrible events in Texas to exploit the shooting at Robb Elementary School for political gain.
Returning from a trip to Uvalde, Biden told reporters it was high time to ban the popular 9mm handgun claiming there was no right for Americans to possess a commonly-owned firearm for self-defense.

Previously Biden and the gun grabbers would only go so far as to say they wanted to ban so-called “assault weapons.”
But conservatives long suspected Democrats wanted to ban and seize every firearm in America.
For the first time Biden confirmed that was indeed the case.
Biden justified his call for gun bans by falsely claiming that the Founders banned Americans from owning cannons when they ratified the Second Amendment.
“The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed you couldn’t own a cannon, you couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. There’s always been limitations,” Biden told reporters. “These actions we’ve taken before, they save lives and they can do it again. The idea that an 18-year-old can walk into a store and buy weapons of war designed and marketed to kill is I think just wrong. It just violates common sense.”
This is not true.
There has never been a law banning cannon ownership.
After Biden’s call to ban handguns, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new legislation to ban the sale and transfer of handguns.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about this legislation.
“Canada is making it impossible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in that country. Would President Biden ever consider a similar restriction on handguns here?” Doocy pressed.
Jean-Pierre’s answer left open the possibility of Joe Biden supporting legislation to ban some handguns.
“We’ll leave it up to other countries to set their policy on gun ownership,” Jean-Pierre responded. “The president has made his position clear that the United States needs to act, as I just laid out. He supports a ban on sales of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and expanded background checks to keep guns out of dangerous hands. He does not support a ban on the sale of all handguns.”
Gun control is not politically popular.
That’s why Democrats and the corporate media always wait for mass shootings to renew their push to ban guns because under any other circumstances there is never any momentum on the side of the gun grabbers.
The last time the Democrats pushed gun control – the 2013 legislation to create a national gun registration database in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy – Democrats lost nine Senate seats in the ensuing election.
Joe Biden supporting a handgun ban drags the Democrats to even more unfavorable political ground heading into the 2022 midterm election.
