Biden Said What?

President Joe Biden (D) has made a number of claims about guns, your Second Amendment rights and more. Here are some of his most-ridiculous.

“We should also eliminate gun manufacturers from the immunity they received ... What people don’t realize: The only industry in America that can’t be sued ... are gun manufacturers.”
Time and again, Biden has called for a repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), as he was doing in this quote, which protects firearms manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. The plain reality is that firearms manufacturers can be sued, like any other industry, for product liability violations. They cannot be sued, however, for the criminal misuse of their products, thanks to protections from the PLCAA.

“Most people don’t know: If you walk into a store and you buy a gun, you have a background check. But you go to a gun show, you can buy whatever you want and no background check.”
Biden said this whopper during a press conference in the Rose Garden addressing the “epidemic of gun violence” in our nation. The fact is, federal law requires dealers to initiate a background check through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System wherever they sell a gun, including gun shows.

“We’re taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis but what is actually a public-health crisis.”
Using Second Amendment rights is not a disease or a sickness. Biden is saying this because he wants to use public money to promote gun control.

“No one needs to have a weapon that can fire over 30, 40, 50, even up to 100 rounds unless you think the deer are wearing Kevlar vests or something.”
Biden has trotted out this odd line about deer in Kevlar vests a few times. This is a bait and switch, as he wants to ban all magazines that hold over 10 rounds—but who is to say how much a person needs to protect themselves from a home invasion?
