Joe Biden on Thursday delivered remarks on ‘gun violence’ in America and announced his ‘initial’ executive actions on gun control.
Biden used this as an opportunity to trash America and attack the Second Amendment.
“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment… No amendment to the Constitution is absolute. You can’t yell ‘fire in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech. From the beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own,” he said.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic and it’s an international embarrassment, “said Biden.
No, Joe, you’re the international embarrassment.
President Biden: “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic and it’s an international embarrassment.”

Biden’s six executive actions include:
- The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
- The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.
- The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states: Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others.
- The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.
- The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.
- The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
This is just the beginning of Joe Biden’s war on the Second Amendment.
