“Assault weapons” politically defined as any firearm that can kill people. “High Capacity Magazines” defined as any weapon that can hold more than seven bullets. “Universal Background Checks” defined as a federal registry of who owns guns in the United States (you can imagine how that registry aligns with the newly proposed “domestic extremist” list). Below are Biden’s transcribed remarks:
(White House) – JOE BIDEN: “I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take commonsense steps that will save the lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act.
We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again. I got that done when I was a senator. It passed. It was law for the longest time, and it brought down these mass killings. We should do it again.
We can close the loopholes in our background check system, including the “Charleston loophole.” That’s one of the best tools we have right now to prevent gun violence. The Senate should immediately pass — let me say it again: The United States Senate — I hope some are listening — should immediately pass the two House-passed bills that close loopholes in the background check system.
These are bills that received votes of both Republicans and Democrats in the House. This is not and should not be a partisan issue; this is an American issue. It will save lives — American lives — and we have to act. We should also ban assault weapons in the process.” (link)
Every day we get a little bit closer…
