Biden Angrily Condemned Gun Owners Who Own Weapons With The Capacity Of Holding 20 Rounds
“Who in God’s name, needs a weapon that can hold 100 rounds, or 40 rounds, or 20 rounds?” he asked. “It’s just wrong.”
Biden repeated his support for a ban on assault weapons as well as a ban on magazines holding more than ten rounds.
“It’s just wrong, and I’m not going to give up until it’s done,” he said.
The president demanded Republicans finally act on the issue.
“I continue and I strongly, strongly urge my Republican friends in the Congress who refuse to bring up the House-passed bill,” he said.
Biden said “gun violence” is a “national embarrassment”.
“It’s not only these mass shootings that are occurring, every single day, every single day there’s a mass shooting in the United States if you count all those who are killed on the streets and our rural areas,” he said.
Biden claimed that the majority of gun owners in Americans supported the idea of universal background checks and banning sales of assault weapons.
“The majority of them think we should not be selling assault weapons,” he said.
