In his gun control address last Friday, President Joe Biden continued a pattern of making perplexing statements that left many Americans bewildered. This recurring trend of the president delivering what some perceive as false and confounding assertions is becoming increasingly notable.
One of the most outrageous statements came when President Biden declared that he has “been to every mass shooting.” Now, either the president has some sort of superhuman power that allows him to teleport to every tragedy, or he’s just making things up to further his gun control agenda. I’ll let you decide which one sounds more plausible.
But that wasn’t the only head-scratcher. President Biden also took a moment to share his thoughts on magazine capacity, declaring that if you need 80 shots in a magazine, you shouldn’t own a gun. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have extra bullets in a time of crisis than find myself defenseless against an attacker. But I guess our president knows better than us regular folks.
Naturally, President Biden couldn't help but commend himself for his prior gun control initiatives. He took the opportunity to recall his role in implementing the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, which included restrictions on assault weapons and multiple magazines. Ah, those were the days when expansive government actions were lauded. President Biden's words serve as a reminder of his steadfast dedication to what some perceive as curtailing our Second Amendment rights.
But perhaps the most bewildering moment of the address came when President Biden tried to connect with the audience by comparing his own experiences to those of a senator who served 827 years ago. Now, I’m no history expert, but I’m pretty sure nobody in that audience could relate to being elected to the Senate 827 years ago. Maybe President Biden was just trying to distract us from his nonsensical statements with some historical trivia. Classic politician move.
Overall, President Biden’s address promoting gun control was just another example of his penchant for confusion and deception. It’s clear that he’s more interested in pushing his agenda than in telling the American people the truth. But hey, at least we got some good material for late-night comedy shows out of it.
