Ban those 200-Round Magazines!

, ,

After his son Hunter was convicted of lying on the federal form that must be submitted to allow the purchase of a firearm, President Biden shared with the nation his wisdom on Gun Control.

A few excerpts proving this president’s knowledge and understanding of the issues involved.

It’s time once again to do what I did when I was a Senator: ban assault weapons! I mean it. Who in God’s name needs a magazine which can hold 200 shells? Nobody. That’s right.”

I remember when I was campaigning, when I was a Senator, going through the wetlands of Delaware to meet all the people who were most upset with me—the fishermen and the hunters. And I came across a guy who was fishing. He said, ‘You want to take my gun?’ And I looked at him and said, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to take your gun. You’re allowed to have a gun, but I want to take away your ability to use an assault weapon…’ He said, ‘What do you mean? I need that gun.’ I said, ‘Guess what? If you need 12 to 100 bullets in a gun, in a magazine, you’re the lousiest shot I’ve ever heard.”

You know and I know: there are no 200-round or 100-round magazines for any rifles or handguns.

I used to be a law professor. When I was no longer the Vice President, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Before that, I taught a constitutional law class and, well, talked about the Second Amendment. There’s never been a time that says you can own anything you want. You couldn’t own a cannon during the Civil War. No, I’m serious. Think about it.”

Joe Biden was, of course, never really a law professor. Joe Biden received a sort of honorary appointment at U of P that Politifact describes here:

The University of Pennsylvania named Biden as Benjamin Franklin Presidential Professor of the Practice in early 2017, after his vice presidency ended.

The university’s faculty handbook says a practice professor’s “primary” activity is teaching, but the job may also involve supervising independent studies and internships, serving on committees and attending school faculty meetings.

Biden served in his position for about two years because he went on leave for his 2020 presidential campaign. Biden was paid more than $900,000 for this university role from 2017 to 2019, according to tax forms he’s filed.

Shortly after Biden’s University of Pennsylvania appointment was announced in 2017, Kate Bedingfield, then a Biden campaign spokesperson, told the university newspaper The Daily Pennsylvanian that Biden would not be teaching regular classes.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in 2019 that Biden’s post “involved no regular classes and around a dozen public appearances on campus, mostly in big, ticketed events.”

And he’s wrong about private ownership of cannons in 19th Century America.
