A paradigm shift took place last Wednesday.
The Biden administration, congressional Democrats, and fake news networks apparently all got the same memo.
They started pushing the narrative that the second amendment has never been absolute and they need to add 9mm handguns to the list of weapons that must be banned.
President Biden on Monday took aim at 9mm handguns, appearing to suggest that the “high-caliber weapons” ought to be outlawed.
“They said a .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out — may be able to get it and save the life. A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body,” Biden said.
“So, the idea of these high-caliber weapons is, uh, there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of self-protection, hunting,” Biden added. “Remember, the Constitution was never absolute.”
“You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed,” Biden said. “You couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weaponry.”
The president, however, ruled out the possibility of issuing an executive order on guns, saying: “I can’t dictate this stuff.”
According to Shooting Industry magazine, the 9mm round is the most popular handgun caliber in the United States, accounting for well over half of all handguns produced in 2019. The data showed that throughout the 2010s, 9mm pistols made up more than 40% of all pistols produced in the United States.
NBC’s Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press,” says that doesn’t mean Americans have a right to bear arms.
“This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist,” Todd said on his show on Sunday.
The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to meet in an emergency session on Thursday. The Democratic majority looks to schedule a series of gun control bills in the wake of the mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas.
The donkey party plans to vote on gun control and hopes to campaign on the expected GOP’s opposition to their radical bills, falsy claiming Republicans don’t care about gun violence. They have introduced eight bills related to the issue and are calling their omnibus legislation the “Protecting Our Kids Act.”
The bills would raise the age requirement to buy a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21 years old; make it a federal crime to import, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possess high-capacity magazines, with a grandfather clause for existing magazines; require existing bump stocks to be registered under the National Firearms Act; bans new bump stocks; codify the Biden administration’s new regulations on so-called ghost guns; crackdown on straw purchases for firearms; and create new requirements for storing guns at home where minors are present.
According to Punchbowl News, Democratic leaders plan to bring the omnibus gun control package to the House floor early next week, where it is expected to pass. Right now they are ironing out the details on whether to bring up all the bills at once or vote on them individually.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team reportedly discussed action on guns last week. “We felt like we needed to do something big and comprehensive after two mass shootings in two weeks,” a Democratic aide told NBC News.
Considering the makeup of the Congress, major gun control legislation still has no chance of passing the U.S. Senate, where 60 votes are needed to overcome a filibuster from Republicans.
It’s highly unlikely that the very slim 50-member Democratic majority could pass a gun control bill without the filibuster. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has consistently opposed expanding federal background checks, objecting to how these bills would apply to private transactions.
In what should be concerning to all gun owners, reports are out indicating that there may be a small bipartisan consensus on a bill that would incentivize states to adopt so-called red-flag laws.
These so-called Red Flag laws would permit ANYONE, including ex-spouses or life-long enemies, to anonymously report any gun owner if “they believe” they might be a danger to themselves. If the request is accepted, the local police would show up unexpectedly demanding all of the owners’ weapons. The gun owner would then have to go to court to explain why they should get their constitutionally protected guns back.
The gun owner under a Red Flag law request is assumed guilty, without any evidence being provided first.
More people die from drunk driving or drug overdoses than non-gang-related shootings, so I say leave the law-abiding citizens alone!
