Remember the ugly confrontation between a Detroit auto-worker and Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden, over past statements he made about taking guns away from Americans?
“You are actively trying to diminish our Second Amendment Right and take away our guns!’ the auto worker told Biden.
One of Biden’s female handlers tried to end the discussion, but Joe jumped in and snapped at her, “Shush…shush!” he told her, as he aggressively responded to the autoworker, demanding that he believe him about his support for the Second Amendment. “Guess what?” Biden said, comparing gun ownership to shouting, “fire” in a movie theatre, “You’re not allowed to own any weapon!” Biden said as he tried to explain that you can only own guns that the government allows you to own.
When the autoworker tried to tell him he watched a viral video when he was with anti-gun activist Beto O’Rourke, and that Biden clearly said he would take away their guns—an angry Biden snapped back, saying that he would take his “AR-14’s (a weapon that doesn’t even exist) away” from him.

Now, after campaigning on not being a gun-control president, Biden, who has only been in office for less than two months, is now proving that the autoworker who confronted him was correct—he is trying to take your guns.
According to Epoch Times- A gun-rights organization said that President Joe Biden’s gun control proposal would potentially make about 105 million law-abiding gun owners into criminals.
“While we can agree that there are several ‘common sense’ and long overdue changes needed to our nation’s gun laws, we firmly believe that the path forward should be focused on supporting and protecting responsible, law-abiding Americans—not criminalizing and punishing them,” the U.S. Concealed Carry Association said in a letter to Biden this week.
The group—which, according to the group’s website, has about 556,000 members—said the president’s push for gun control on the anniversary of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting was needless.
“The U.S. Concealed Carry Association exists to help responsible Americans avoid danger, save lives, and keep their families safe, and we believe that our elected leaders in Washington have an incredible obligation to pursue these same goals,” the group added.
The FBI stated last month that it processed a record 39.7 million firearm background checks in 2020, which bested the previous high of 10 million. Reports said that as many as 8.5 million purchased their first firearm in 2020, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Meanwhile, a number of gun and ammunition manufacturers reported shortages amid the surge in demand.
Biden earlier this month said that he would push Congress to enact more gun control measures, including allowing gun manufacturers to face lawsuits, banning “assault weapons,” and placing bans on high-capacity magazines. His pick for Attorney General, Merrick Garland, told lawmakers on Monday that he would support the White House’s stance on gun control.
“This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer. Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden said earlier this month.
Pro-Second Amendment groups have noted that the term “assault weapon” has a nebulous meaning, with some saying that it is a made-up term that was invented by the anti-gun lobby in the 1980s. “Assault rifle” is a term sometimes used by the military to define a rifle that has select-fire capabilities, or the ability to switch between semi-automatic or fully automatic. For example, the much-derided AR-15 doesn’t have select-fire capability and only operates as a semi-automatic rifle.
