Standing Guard | Biden Blames The Second Amendment Instead Of Pro-Criminal Policies

President Joe Biden is a national embarrassment and a failure on many of the pressing issues our nation faces. That’s the long-standing majority opinion across America, according to the polls.

So it’s little surprise that he’s now ramping up attacks on NRA members, law-abiding gun owners and our Second Amendment freedom. Nothing else is working for him. He needs something to motivate his far-left base and distract folks from his repeated blunders.

Last month, at a conference to honor two courageous New York City police officers who were murdered by a violent felon, President Biden shamelessly used the opportunity to push his gun-ban agenda.

He called for a ban on semi-automatic rifles. He called for a ban on standard- capacity magazines. He called for a ban on private gun sales. He called for putting firearm manufacturers out of business by way of crippling, frivolous lawsuits.

Make no mistake, Joe Biden’s anti-gun, pro-criminal agenda is taking a tragic toll across America.

He called for more after-school programs and more community social workers.

The one thing he didn’t call for just happens to be the one thing that could have prevented the heinous murder of the two officers memorialized at the event.

Biden didn’t once call for banning violent criminals and putting them behind bars where they belong.

He didn’t mention that the monster who killed those officers was a violent felon who was out on parole.

Instead, Joe Biden, our nation’s demagogue-in-chief, looked straight into the camera, pointed his scolding finger at you and me, and blamed us and our Second Amendment freedom for two dead police officers.

This is the same Biden who serves as the national cheerleader for pro-criminal policies like no-cash bail. The same Biden who wants to get rid of mandatory minimum sentences. The same Biden who refuses to get serious about prosecuting felons who violate federal gun laws, and instead, just lets them go free.

And make no mistake, Joe Biden’s anti-gun, pro-criminal agenda is taking a tragic toll across America.

Our nation was horrified early this year when a 24-year-old UCLA student was randomly attacked and stabbed to death while she was working alone at a furniture store in Los Angeles, California. Our collective horror turned to outrage when we found out her murderer was a career criminal. According to the victim’s father, police told him it never should have happened because the murderer should have been behind bars.

Just weeks ago, in Houston, Texas, a 15-year-old girl was shot to death while walking her dog in a park near her home. She was allegedly murdered by her violent boyfriend, whom police promptly arrested. But just as promptly, he’s now out on bond and free to walk among us while awaiting trial.

“I can’t sleep,” said the victim’s mother. “Watching cameras. Any noise I hear, I get up. I can’t sleep.”

Recently, in New York City, a 19-year-old woman was murdered while working at a Burger King. Her alleged killer—a 30-year-old career criminal who had recently been arrested on assault and weapons charges—pointed a gun and demanded the woman give him cash from the register. After she handed him the cash, he shot her anyway.

Joe Biden knows that his radical agenda to help violent criminals escape prosecution and conviction will only make the deadly crime wave plaguing our country spread further and deeper into more communities.

He also knows that taking guns away from law-abiding Americans won’t make anyone safer.

However, where you and I see violent criminals as an obvious scourge that needs to be eliminated through arrest, prosecution and incarceration—Biden and his anti-gun allies in cities and states across the nation see them as a constituency to be cultivated for political and electoral gains.

It’s sinister. It’s disgusting. It’s deadly.

And now more than ever, it’s up to you, me, and our fellow NRA members to defend our right to defend ourselves and our families.
