Almost immediately after the mass shooting in Colorado, Biden asked Congress to pass new gun control measures.
Following a mass shooting that left 10 dead in Boulder, Colorado this week, President Biden is urging the Senate to pass new gun control measures.
“I got that done as a senator. It brought down mass shootings, we can do it again,” Biden said. “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again.”
Joe Biden has wasted no time politicizing the attack in Boulder yesterday by calling for an assault weapons ban & other infringements on our Second Amendment.

In addition, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in February that Biden “hasn’t ruled out” the possibility of taking executive action on gun control. The president had already signed an unprecedented number of executive orders during his first days in office.
Now, almost immediately after the tragedy in Boulder, Biden is politicizing the event in order to attack the Second Amendment. He and other Democrats have pushed gun control and increased restrictions for years with no success.
Banning weapons from responsible, law-abiding citizens will only give criminals more incentive to commit mass shootings. The end of America’s mass shooting pandemic begins with looking at mental health and a variety of other factors. Putting the blame on guns, which the president continues to do, won’t get us anywhere.
