Former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden strongly advocated for a ban on new sales and national buyback of military-style rifles in an interview with Anderson Cooper, and he didn’t blink when the CNN host confronted him with the “come for your guns” talking point he’s likely to hear from conservatives: “Bingo. You’re right if you have an assault weapon.” Keep America Tactical ➡️http://bit.ly/2GQVi3K
Enough is enough. As a nation, we need to take common-sense steps to end this epidemic of gun violence.@senatemajldr Mitch McConnell should reconvene the Senate and pass the House’s universal background check bill. We cannot wait to take action. https://t.co/0OLqH0xxcl

FoxNews reports that after the horrific mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton that left 31 people dead and dozens more injured have thrust the issue of gun violence into the center of the 2020 presidential campaign — with calls growing louder in the Democratic field for the return of an assault-weapons ban.
Primary front-runner Joe Biden went so far Monday as to say he’s coming for those guns.
Asked what he’d say to gun owners worried that Biden would be coming for their guns, he quickly answered: “Bingo! You’re right, if you have an assault weapon.”
“The fact of the matter is [assault weapons] should be illegal. Period,” Biden said. “The Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own. You can’t buy a bazooka. You can’t have a flame-thrower.”
Biden has long supported bans on assault weapons and firearms with high-capacity magazines…
Again. its up to us. these statements cannot be ignored. You have to go out and take action. Vote, call your representatives. Just sitting on the couch and screaming at facebook does absolutely nothing. Join pro gun organizations that actually fight unconstitutional gun laws. Dont sit idly by while your rights are stripped away.
