Joe Biden Pushes Ban on ‘Assault Weapons’ and ‘100-Round’ Magazines

President Joe Biden used a tweet on Sunday to reiterate his push for an “assault weapons” ban, but he also took aim at “100-round” ammunition magazines.

Biden tweeted:

Biden pushed an “assault weapons” ban on the campaign trail and has continued to push for one during his first two years as President.

Six months into his presidency, during a CNN townhall, Biden floated a “push to eliminate” 9mm pistols.

He said, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous. I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things.”

On May 30, 2022, Breitbart News reported on Biden falsely claiming that a 9mm bullet will “blow the lung out of the body.”
