Biden calls for assault weapons ban, making gun manufacturers liable for shootings

President Biden on Thursday made an emotional appeal for ambitious new gun laws, including a ban on military-style rifles, as lawmakers wrangled bitterly over how to prevent more bloodshed in America.

In an address to the nation, the president prodded Congress that “it is time to act” and repeatedly declared “enough” about the slaughters in schools and other mass shootings that have become all too routine in the U.S.

If Congress would not ban assault weapons outright, Mr. Biden said, the least lawmakers could do would be to raise the age of purchase for semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21.

Mr. Biden also urged lawmakers to expand background checks for gun purchases, change liability laws to allow gun manufacturers to be sued for shootings and make gun owners liable for not keeping their firearms locked up.

“This isn’t about taking away anyone’s rights,” Mr. Biden said. “It’s about protecting children, about protecting families. … It’s about protecting our freedom to go to school, to a grocery store, to a church without being shot and killed.”

He said the overwhelming majority of Americans support tougher gun laws and that, he hoped, voters would hold the lawmakers accountable. <Source>

I cannot wait to see a lawsuit filed against Porsche, the liquor brand, and the host who served Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s drunk husband…

Nancy Pelosi’s husband was in car crash before his DUI arrest: cops

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband crashed a new Porsche just five miles from their multi-million-dollar California vineyard when he was busted for allegedly driving drunk, police documents revealed Monday.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was in a 2021 Porsche when he tried to get across State Route-29 in Napa Valley from a country lane close to other vineyards, just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, his arrest report said.

As he attempted to cross the main road, “his Porsche was struck” by a 2014 Jeep driven by a 48-year-old local man, the document said. The other driver was not arrested. <Source>

Common sense tells you…

(1) Concerning shootings and drunk driving, the individual, not an inanimate object, must be held responsible for their behavior, actions, and outcomes.

(2)  Criminals, crazies, terrorists, and drunks do not respect or follow existing laws.

(3)  In a nation of 330+ million, there are bound to be heinous events, and it is impossible to achieve zero tolerance levels when psychopaths, substance abusers, and other miscreants act out. To the extent that the media, with its repetitive 24/7 coverage amplifies these events into even more significant catastrophes or provides infamous notoriety to the perpetrator, the media must accept a portion of the blame from reporting that goes beyond news coverage to political propaganda.

(4)  Politicians who want to pass additional laws to disarm law-abiding citizens with a God-given right to self-defense should be thrown out of office for increasing the vulnerability of the public to thuggery, injury, and death.

(5)  If anything, firearms training in schools should take precedent over learning about deviant sexual behavior or genital mutilation to make yourself feel better or receive approval from the perverts in their lives.

(6)  Just as "assault rifle" is a meaningless made-up political label, there is no such thing as commonsense gun control. THE ISSUE IS CRIME CONTROL AND THE DEMOCRATS WHO FAVOR PERPETRATORS OVER VICTIMS!

Bottom line…


We are so screwed.
