Democrats are working overtime to take away constitutional rights from the American people.
He wants to punish millions of law-abiding Americans for crimes they did not commit.
Joe Biden is planning to make a scary power grab that should worry every patriot.
The Democrats are deeply committed to taking away guns from the American people.
And they are using a tragic mass shooting in recent days to justify their actions.
President Joe Biden called for an “assault weapons” ban following Monday’s shooting attack at the Boulder, Colorado grocery store along with urging the Senate to pass H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446.
Biden had to admit that the facts are not currently available yet.
“While we’re still waiting for more information, I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common-sense steps that will save 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 the law for the longest time. And it brought down these mass killings. We should do it again,” Biden remarked.
However, Biden is rewriting history.
The Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) released a report following the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban showing it didn’t make a measurable difference in crime.
The Washington Times quoted University of Pennsylvania professor Christopher Koper, author of the NIJ report, saying, “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 Democrats pretend banning “assault-style” rifles will make a difference in crime rates but that’s simply not true.
FBI statistics show that more people were killed by “personal weapons,” meaning hands, fists or feet than by all rifles. Knives killed three times the number killed by rifles.
The British police action of trying to carry out knife control in London, while ridiculous on its face, makes more sense than trying to ban assault rifles.
There’s a statistically proven way to lower crime rates but Democrats don’t want it.
Tough-on-crime stances by police show real evidence of bringing down crime.
“From 1987-1994, New York experienced at least 2,000 murders every year. After Republican Rudy Giuliani stepped into the mayor’s office in 1994, and Republican George Pataki stepped into the governor’s mansion the next year, the state saw a drop in crime. Giuliani implemented what became known as the ‘Broken Windows Theory’ of policing in the mid-1990s. Crime in the state has gone down ever since, and the state has not experienced more than 1,000 murders in a year since 1997.”
However, Democrats would rather treat all Americans like prisoners rather than punishing the actual criminals.
