During the Democratic primary debate on Tuesday hosted by CBS News, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that 150 million Americas have died from shootings since 2007. That would basically be half of the country killed by guns.
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability,” Biden falsely claimed. “More than all the wars, including Vietnam, from that point on, carnage on our streets.”
“And I want to tell you, if I’m elected, NRA I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers I’m going to take you on and I’m going to beat you,” Biden said.
WATCH the clip below:
Biden's claim is blatantly false considering only about 11,000 people die from gun related homicides a year.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported relating to Biden's views on the second amendment:
Biden was a leading proponent and sponsor of the federal “assault weapons” ban, a subset of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. Throughout his career, he has generally been supportive of curtailing Second Amendment rights. Biden has also supported mandating five-day waiting periods for gun purchases, as well as closing the alleged “gun show loophole.” Biden supports a ban on the undefinable sub-class of firearms referred to as so-called “assault weapons” — a line of thought that, if taken to its logical conclusion, could lead to the banning of all semi-automatic firearms in America.
Biden’s record, however, is actually much worse on the Second Amendment when his remarks about the issue are examined as he regularly makes embarrassing remarks that show he does not know what he is talking about and that he has fringe far-left views on the issue.
Biden clearly doesn't know what he is talking about considering just last week during a CNN town hall event, Biden called for a ban of semi-automatic guns and “clips that have multiple bullets in them." This would practically ban all guns and demolish the second amendment.
“I’m going to do everything in my power in office or out of office to get those assault weapons off the street, which I have done once already,” Biden claimed. “And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.”
<ast September, Biden made similar comments when he said: “The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it’s absolutely mindless.”
“It’s no violation of the Second Amendment,” Biden bizarrely claimed.
The Daily Wire continues:
Biden made bizarre and incoherent remarks about the Second Amendment earlier this month, saying that kids in schools have to participate in shooter drills “because we’re unwilling to have a rational policy that says you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.”
“I now have over 58% of the NRA members acknowledging that you cannot own an assault weapon,” Biden falsely claimed. “There is no need for it. You can’t have a magazine that is more than 10 rounds in it.”
