Biden Brings Up 1994 Weapon Ban, Only One Problem
Image credit: Mother Jones

Biden should look at facts first…

Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden used a New York Times op-ed to inaccurately claim the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban was successful.

Biden wrote about working with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to secure a ban on “assault weapons,” which included a ban on “high-capacity” magazines.

Biden did not mention the Department of Justice’s Institute of Justice (NIJ) report explaining the ban’s impact on crime was negligible at best.

Biden’s op-ed also overlooks the fact that the 1994-2004 federal ban did not actually ban “assault weapons.” Rather, it banned cosmetic features of certain guns.

It was also legal to buy “high-capacity” magazines as long as those magazines had been manufactured before the ban began.

Despite these facts, Biden wrote, “The 1994 assault weapons and high-capacity magazines bans worked.”

  1. Desperate people do desperate things. As far as the Monkey squad running on the Democratic ticket goes, they are about as desperate as it gets. Talk about grabbing at straws, these lying ego-tripping A-holes are spewing out any and every lie they can come up with to try and dupe the American people. But the truth is that if it wasn’t for these obstructionist scum the country would be running like a top, and that doesn’t fit to their destruction of Democracy.

  2. His crew needs to do something about him. It is apparent that his memory is failing and I am not saying this to be mean. He us old and this us what happens when you get old. If he were out campaigning like the others he would never be able to keep up. His gaffes would be a lot more. This man cannot be the president if the US. by the time the election is over he will want to know when will everyone vote sad.

  3. If Biden is writing his own material he needs to stop it. His facts and time periods are way off. If his comments are fed by his staff, he needs to replace them. Can you imagine this idiot trying to run our country? Even Obama kept him out of the country to avoid him talking to the press with dumb comments.

  4. Yep, good old Joe, the gaffe-machine that just keeps on giving. But, that’s the mentality of the Democratic Left these days. It doesn’t matter if anything that they propose or do is workable or practical (see: Green New Deal). All that matters is whether, in their minds, their motives are pure as gold. And, if you point out the flaws in their plans, they call you racist, fascist, elitist, etc. After all, it’s a lot easier than actually thinking, right?

  5. I almost feel sorry for him, since I’m turning 70 next month. We need to have a convention of states, & add amendments to our Constitution. Term limits are DEFINITELY needed. And, if you have nasty stuff to say about OUR country, then you should have to leave. That’d shut up a few people! Do they not write speeches for Joe? Or is this just random things. I don’t look for him to get the nomination, as bad as he’s getting. If he does, we’ll win by a landslide!!

  6. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS IS HE WAS THE ONLY THAT CALLED FOR IT.. SLEEPING JOEY BIDEN IS THE BIGGEST JOKE THERE HAS EVER BEEN SINCE REAGAN WAS A PUP AND POCAHONTAS SAID SHE WAS A NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN. I DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THESE FLEA BAG WANNA BE’S FOR PRESIDENT WITH YOUR BANKROLL .. THERE’S NOT A ONE THAT WOULD GIVE ME A SINGLE REASON TO VOTE FOR THEM IF I WERE A DEPLORABLE HABITUAL LYING DEMOCRAT.. WHICH I ‘AM NOT ! I WILL BE A MODERATE REPUBLICAN THE
    REST OF MY LIFE BECAUSE I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A REPUBLICAN..

  7. THAT’S WHY SLEEPY JOE BIDEN NEVER EVER HAD A BILL MAKE IT TO THE SENATE FLOOR.. HE DIDN’T HAVE THE SMARTS TO THE RESEARCH AND FIND THE FACTS. HIM AND DIANE (FRANKENSTEIN) FEINSTEIN NEVER EVER DID ANY TYPE OF FACT FINDING OR RESEARCH ON ANY OF THE BILLS THEY TRIED TO PUT FORWARD..
    THAT’S WHY SLEEPY JOE BIDEN THING’S HE KNOWS EVERYTHING BUT KNOWS NOTHING.. HIS JUST A INSANE IGNORANT OLD FART. THAT KNOWS THING.. SO SLEEPY OLD JERK GIVE IT UP AND RETIRE TO A REST HOME..

  8. The assault on assault weapons was a complete bust, even according to the government. That is why, many years later, they still have not passed another one. So called “assault” weapons are semi automatic and no different than many hunting rifles, shotguns, and target guns. Just because they “look” scary to some people is no reason to ban them. Criminals know they can do just as much damage or more with semi-auto pistols, shotguns, and hunting rifles. Unless a new law can be shown to positively reduce the possibility of using a weapon for a crime, there is no reason to pass any new laws.

  9. It never stops amazing me just how the Dumbocrat/Socialists (Not Patriotic Democrats) can so twist the Truth just as well as Hitlers and his Goons did to the German people to suite their needs !!!
