In a never-ending persecution of law-abiding gun owners across America, President Joe Biden used the recent mass shooting in Maine to go after the Second Amendment.
Recently, 18 individuals were killed in Lewiston, Maine, by suspect Robert Card, who can be seen in video footage walking into a bowling place with a rifle, Fox News reported.
Biden is now calling for a repeal of protections that protect gun manufacturers from lawsuits, universal background checks and other “gun control” measures, as reported by Breitbart News. As always, Democrats never fail to use a tragedy to advance their political agenda.
The White House’s website published Biden’s statement, which began with the president saying, “Today, Jill and I are praying for the Americans who’ve lost their lives, for those still in critical care, and for the families, survivors, and community members enduring shock and grief.”
The president then urged residents in Maine to follow all law enforcement’s warnings, including those advising them to shelter in place, Breitbart News reported.
“For countless Americans who have survived gun violence and been traumatized by it, a shooting such as this reopens deep and painful wounds. Far too many Americans have now had a family member killed or injured as a result of gun violence. That is not normal, and we cannot accept it,” Biden said.
Biden then touted the anti-Second Amendment bill he passed in 2022 with Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act was passed in the Senate by a 64-34 vote.
The president pointed out that “gun control,” which is merely a euphemism by Democrats for the elimination of all firearms, is not enough to address the issue in the U.S.
“I urge Republican lawmakers in Congress to fulfill their duty to protect the American people. Work with us to pass a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to enact universal background checks, to require safe storage of guns, and end immunity from liability for gun manufacturers,” Biden said in his statement.
Today Joe Biden demanded that Republicans pass a ban on “assault weapons” after the shooting in Maine last night.
Meanwhile, the border is wide open and he wants you to be unarmed as Hezbollah and HAMAS terrorists pour across our open border.

Biden’s presidency is a never-ending saga of lies. Breitbart News fact-checked the president’s claim that gun manufacturers have “immunity from liability,” pointing out that gun makers are not shielded from liability and are instead protected from “lawsuits over the criminal use of guns that are legally made and legally sold.”
