Democrat President Joe Biden appeared to admit during Thursday’s press conference that his crackdown on Second Amendment rights is “all about timing,” a comment that gun advocates said was a reference to aligning his actions with tragedies like Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado.

“Wondering if you’ve made a decision either about sending the manufacturer liability bill that you’ve promised on day one to Capitol Hill?” left-wing reporter Justin Sink asked. “Or executive actions like going after ghost guns or giving money to citizen states to battle gun control?”

“All the above,” Biden responded. “It’s a matter of timing. As you’ve all observed, successful presidents better than me have been successful in large part because they know how to time what they’re doing, order it, decide the priorities what needs to be done.”

“Biden just straight-up admitted his push for gun control is ‘all about timing’ when a shooting happens,” Second Amendment advocate Caleb Hull wrote on Twitter. “Disgusting. Just absolutely disgusting.”

Reporters did not ask Biden about the bombshell story that came out today that suggested that his son may have lied on a background check form to illegally obtain a firearm, which would be a felony.

Biden has called on Congress to ban “assault weapons,” which Second Amendment opponent Leah Libresco, a former researcher at FiveThirtyEight, admitted is “an invented classification that includes any semi-automatic that has two or more features.”

The Daily Wire reported:

…Biden’s call for “banning assault weapons” likely amounts to calling for a ban on semi-automatic firearms, and there was no language included in the statement about allowing gun owners who currently own those weapons to be able to keep those weapons. If gun owners are not allowed to keep those specific semi-automatic firearms under a Biden ban, that would effectively amount to a mandatory gun confiscation-type program.

Something similar happened several years ago when the Trump administration banned bump stocks following the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas shooting. …

Biden’s call on Congress to enact legislation that would strip gun manufacturers of immunity from lawsuits who “knowingly put weapons of war on our streets” is essentially a backdoor way of trying to bankrupt the gun industry or force them to drastically change the types of weapons they are willing to sell.

When gun control activists use the term “weapons of war,” they are generally using it in such a way as to portray the weapons that they want to ban as “weapons” that are used in “war,” as in used by militaries. However, this is inaccurate because the types of weapons that gun control activists are referring to, usually AR-15-style rifles, are not used in war. The variants of those rifles that are currently sold by gun manufacturers in the U.S. are semi-automatic firearms, not the fully automatic versions that are used by military.

Biden’s call on Congress to restrict Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights comes after his call for “unity.”

Approximately one out of every three Americans own a firearm, nearly half the country lives in a household where firearms are present, and there are more firearms than people in the United States. Gun sales smashed all-time records last year amid the pandemic and violent riots that broke out in major U.S. cities, which are largely run by Democrats. Nearly five million Americans bought a firearm for the very first time last year.
