Joe Biden Uses Parkland Shooting Anniversary to Call for Stricter Gun Laws

Now that Joe’s in the Oval Office, all that talk about being a moderate has gone right out the window.

While Joe Biden may very well have run as a moderate during his 2020 campaign, there is no longer any denying that he’ll be at the beck and call of the radical left over the course of the next four years.

Biden simply couldn’t have carried the Democratic Party vote without making some allowances to the far left.  After all, it was the Bernie Sanders-obsessed contingent that abandoned Hillary Clinton back in 2016, sending Donald Trump to the White House; there was no way that the Dems would allow that to happen again.

So, now that Joe’s in the Oval Office, he can push the entire narrative a little further to the left than he suggested was likely during his campaign – and that includes a harsher take on the Second Amendment.

President Joe Biden marked February 14, 2021–the third anniversary of the Parkland school shooting–by calling on Congress to pass more gun control.

He used a tweet to recount the heinous attack, writing, “In seconds, the lives of dozens of families, and the life of an American community, was changed forever.”

Biden referenced the “lone gunman [who] took the lives of 14 students and three educators” and also directed attention toward violence in certain cities across America. He suggested singled out the “gun violence disproportionately devastating Black and Brown individuals in our cities.”

He concluded, in part, by writing:

“Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets. “

It should be noted that the Parkland shooting itself would not have been prevented by a background check, and that weapon used in the shooting was obtained legally.
