Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on his campaign website that he intends to wage war on the Second Amendment rights as part of his “education” plan for America.
Biden stated that the National Rifle Association (NRA) must be defeated “in order to make our schools safer,” and he wants to ban semi-automatic firearms.
Biden said that arming school faculty does not make schools safer and the only solution is to ban semi-automatic firearms.
Biden stated that he wants to ban semi-automatic firearms, despite the fact that the 1994 assault weapon ban had virtually no impact in reducing crime.
Here’s Biden’s full statement:
Defeat the National Rifle Association – again – in order to make our schools safer. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about whether their kids will come home from school, and students shouldn’t have to sacrifice themselves for their friends days before graduation. We cannot let gun violence become an acceptable part of American life. Biden knows that arming teachers isn’t the answer; instead, we need rational gun laws. As President, he will secure passage of gun legislation to make our students safer, and he knows he can do it because he’s defeated the National Rifle Association twice before. He’ll begin by again championing legislation to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines – bans he authored in 1994. In the months ahead, he will release additional proposals to address the gun violence epidemic in our country.
