On Memorial Day, President Biden answered questions from reporters outside of the White House after returning from Uvalde, Texas, the site of the recent school shooting that took the lives of 19 kids and 2 teachers. During these brief few minutes, Biden made some stunning claims, and even hinted at looking into possibly banning 9mm handguns, one of the most popular handguns in America.
During these few minutes, Biden called 9mm a “high caliber” weapon and asked “Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9-mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds”. He also claimed that “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.” He also added that “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.” And then possible the most shocking and comical comment of all, ” “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.
There is so much to unpack here:
- During my new Founders’ Corner article this Friday I will be going over that in fact you could have owned a cannon after the Second Amendment was ratified. He keeps making these claims that even the left wing Washington Post has deemed to be “false”. (Make sure you check that article out).
- A 9mm is now a “military-style weapon” and “high caliber”? If you have even a basic understanding of firearms, you would know that 9mm is nowhere close to being high caliber. Very few people carry anything less than that, so he’s essentially admitting that a ban on most guns commonly used for self defense isn’t off the table. What he just admitted is that they aren’t going to stop with AR-15s, they are coming for your handgun next. You can’t give these “common sense gun laws” crows an inch, because they’ll take 10 miles and you’ll lose your Constitutional rights.
- You don’t want the bullet to get lodged into your lungs, because that causes far more problems for the person. Everyone (except for Joe Biden apparently), knows that the best way to save someone’s life is when you can find an exit wound. When a bullet get’s stuck somewhere, that has the potential to cause far more problems. And a .22 caliber means that you may have to make multiple shots to take down the person that is putting your life in jeopardy. I am curious what gun he has shot that blows the lungs out of someone, because a 9mm doesn’t do that.
They aren’t going to stop with AR-15s and Biden just said the quiet part out loud. People like to mock the “slippery slope” argument, but what do you call this? He is now saying what I’ve been saying is coming if they succeed in taking away AR-15s, which Constitutionally Americans do have the right to own. Now he’s saying that you can’t defend yourself with anything higher than what is able to take down small game?
Americans can not stand for this and I don’t think tens of millions will. I am curious how Biden is planning to take away these guns from citizens. Is he advocated for sending the military to go door to door? That would end up being the quickest way to starting a civil war because I don’t believe that Americans will just turn over their weapons, which they have the Constitutional right to own.
And yes, the Second Amendment is absolute. If it was only a suggestion, they wouldn’t have written it into the bill of rights. If it was only a suggestion, they simply would have just passed a law where at any time congress could pass a law that overturns that law. But they didn’t. They were clear that these rights “shall not be infringed”.
