President Biden took aim at 9mm pistols, which is the most popular type of handgun in the United States. He mistakenly called 9mm the “high-caliber weapons,” urging the ban of the most famous pistols in the country.
Biden Propagates Guns Conspiracy Theories
Over the weekend, Biden traveled to Texas and visited the school which saw a mass shooting last week. On his return, Biden spoke to reporters outside the White House and left no stone unturned in propagating conspiracy theories regarding guns.
Biden tried to lie about the severity of 9mm pistols, claiming that they can “blow the lungs out” of the human body.
He further asserted that these sorts of “high-caliber weapons’ ‘should have no place in American society, and there is no “rational basis” to allow these firearms for self-defense purposes.

In the same address, Biden also ruled out all the demands of the radical left to take executive action against guns. The president noted that he could not sign any executive action to curtail gun access, so tightening background checks is also out of question.
This is not the first time Biden is putting 9mm pistols in the assault weapons category. In a 2019 fundraiser, he asked his audience why the country needs to allow “military-style weapons” that fire “9mm bullets.”
As per the data, nearly 56.8 % of handguns made in America in 2019 were 9mm pistols. In the last decade, almost 15.1 million such weapons have been manufactured, which depicts the volume of these guns in society.
If Democrats stick to their calls of banning 9mm, there is a little possibility that they can convince Republican lawmakers to pass a bill from Congress.
Biden Misjudged Second Amendment Massively
Biden also took aim at the second amendment to the US constitution. According to him, no one could have bought “a lot of weapons” when the amendment was introduced. Likewise, he noted that the right to own guns was “never absolute.”

This attack of the president on the constitution resonated with his previous remarks when he made a similar opinion while urging for reducing so-called “ghost guns.” Even liberal fact-checkers debunked Biden’s comments back then.
Amid the prevailing crisis, Biden is trying to achieve things he is not even pursuing. For instance, he claimed that he did not talk to Republicans about the gun control measures, but still, he is awaiting a compromise from them.
While expressing optimism regarding the so-called gun control measures, Biden mentioned that “rational Republicans like Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn can side with Democrats to pass the gun control bills. However, even if both of these Republican senators vote with the ruling ranks, Democrats will still be unable to avert the filibuster.
Not only Biden but Kamala Harris is also urging to ban assault weapons from America.
She indicated that assault weapons were designed to kill a lot of human beings simultaneously and have “no place” in society.
