The Geezer-in-Chief came back to the United States to demand more gun laws after an 18-year-old transvestite broke numerous federal gun laws as he shot and killed 21 people, 18 of whom were schoolchildren.

Biden said it was time to act. Just what new gun laws he has in mind, he did not say.
However, he did say it was time to stand up to the gun lobby.
Biden said, “As a nation, we have to ask when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name will we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?”
And also out of touch.
81.4 million Americans own a gun. That’s 100,000 more people than voted for Biden.
44% of Americans live in a household that has a gun.
We’re Americans. We own guns. Not everyone, but just enough to make criminals think twice. That is why crime is so high in gun-free zones such as Chicago, New York and Baltimore.
Ben Shapiro tweeted, “The Texas shooter violated a multiplicity of gun laws. The suggestion that more gun laws would have prevented this act of unspeakable evil is unsupported, and the implication that those who oppose such laws are somehow in favor of mass shootings is morally reprehensible.”
American schools are gun-free zones.
Likewise, Joel M. Petlin tweeted, “Did you ever notice that the people who are most in favor of new gun laws after a tragedy are often the most vocal in opposition to the police who have to enforce the law, and the criminal justice system, where the violators of the law need to be tried, convicted and incarcerated.”
In his remarks, Biden pointed out that it has been 10 years since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. In between, there was the Parkland, Florida, massacre. These tragedies are awful but Biden’s call to enact “common sense gun laws” is empty rhetoric. He and his party know nothing about guns. They talk about ghost guns. They want to put ID numbers on bullets. They believe the Constitution only covers muskets.
The idea that the gun lobby is a small cabal of greedy profiteers is nonsense. The lobby numbers 81 million and they vote. Sadly, about a quarter of them vote Democrat. That must change.
