Joe Biden Thursday evening delivered an address on the recent mass shootings and called on Congress to reinstate the 1994 ‘Assault Weapons Ban.’
Once again, Biden attacked the 2nd Amendment and launched an assault on the constitutional rights of law abiding Americans.
In addition to calling for a reinstatement of the ‘Assault Weapons Ban,’ Biden demanded ‘red flag laws.’
“We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21,” said Biden.
Pres. Biden says the assault weapons ban should cover any category of semi-automatic weapons, like AK-47s and AR-15s

Biden also called on Congress to limit how many rounds a weapon can hold.
“We should limit how many rounds a weapon can hold. Why in God’s name should an ordinary citizen be able to purchase an assault weapon that holds 30-round magazines, that let mass shooters fire hundreds of bullets in a matter of minutes?” Biden said.
As The New York Post noted, Biden said the 2nd Amendment “is not absolute,”
President Biden said Thursday that the Second Amendment “is not absolute” during a rare, prime-time speech on the recent wave of horrific, mass shootings.
“I respect the culture and the tradition and the concerns of lawful gun owners, Biden said from the White House. “At the same time, the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute.”
