There estimates that annually there are between 500K and 2 mil lawful uses of firearms in self defense In the US. How do the Dems propose to keep these people and their families safe after taking their firearms?

Why is any politician permitted to continue serving in office when they violate the Constitution or the Amendments to the Constitution?

As usual, great job. I especially loved this part from the discussions between Sleepy Joe and NRA’s James Baker:

“ P. 92- NRA’s Chief Lobbyist James Baker to Biden- “I told him that it didn’t make sense to have federal penalties for lying on the form you have to fill out to purchase a firearm if no one is ever prosecuted for it,” he recalled in an interview. Baker told me that Biden turned to him and said, “Jim, we’re not interested in chasing paperwork violations.” Baker said, “Well Mr. Vice President, with all due respect, if you’re not prosecuting when they lie on the forms, you’re not stopping them.”.

That just proves Biden is clueless and cares only about posturing for his base. Although only about ~3% (maybe less, IIRC) of gun purchases by criminals (or their straw purchasers) are from gun dealers (where they obviously lie on the 4473)

Also, look at how successful Colorado’s Universal Background check attempt has been. Hint - it hasnt)

I'd forgotten what Baker told me about how Biden didn't understand background checks enforcement until I read my own book :) But you're exactly right that it applies again now that the Boulder shooter passed a background check and no law would have stopped him. I'm waiting for the police to release details on the NICS check since they know when he bought the gun now.

Did you include the time when Obama’s AG ran a program to smuggle rifles to Mexico to set up assault rifles and crack down on ‘straw purchases’?

That's right! I can't fit everything into this one but will remember for another time I write about Biden's past disasters.

Yep fast and furious, a border patrol agent was murdered with one.

And many Mexican citizens as well.

Yes, exactly

Is it me or do there appear to be more mass shootings when a Progressive is in office?

Expand full comment

no surprise the fbi had knowledge of these last 6-7 murderers (including the boston marathon brothers) prior to their attacks

I wonder if we use the term "Assault President" if Biden can be eliminated...Just a thought...

It may also be worth remembering that Biden was responsible for the Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990, incorporated into a crime bill.

So, every time gun control fanboys want to rend their clothing over school shootings since 1995, they are merely enjoying the fruit of another failed policy.

Here's another interesting fact. I first learned about Biden's critical role in the GFSZA from (speaking in hushed tones) Wikipedia. I was doing show prep a couple of years ago about school shootings and Gun Free Zones, and distinctly remember Biden being credited with it in that entry.

Well, I was doing another video on Biden's attempt to commemorate Parkland a month or so ago, and revisited the Wikipedia entry--and lo and behold, it was changed to acknowledge Herb Kohl as its author.

Now, that may have been true, but Kohl's bill never got a single vote, and there is no credit given to him in the 1990 crime bill. Biden's name, however, is attached to it, which falls in line with his reputation as a plagiarist.

Does anyone remember how, in 2008, he was touted as one of the smartest candidates for the VP slot? I don't know where they got that idea neither, given the repeated failures of both the GFSZA and the AWB, and his gaffe-ridden tenure as VP. The last 60 or so days certainly haven't done much to support the idea of him being a policy genius, neither.

Paul Krugman is wrong pretty much 100% of the time. I didn't think it was possible however Joe Biden has him beat.

Emily- You might find this compilation useful in future articles.

Goodness I can't believe someone took the time to put all that together! I never heard most of them and I've been at this for a while. Thanks for the link. And so true about poor Joe. He's always fumbling.

It appears that the Fast and Furious FBI approved a 21 year old Syrian on the Terrorist Watchlist to purchase an AR pistol used to slaughter 10 White Infidels!!!

I'm watching closely to see when we are told how a severly mentally ill kid got a gun legally through a background check. How much ya wanna bet his mental health records were never put in NICS by Colorado?

Not all his laws were failures. His UVH zones have gotten many killed over the years, especially children once he disarmed our teachers and installed UVH signs.

Designated Unarmed Victims Here areas were ripe targets for killers of all ilks to go on sprees without fear of being shot.
