According to Red State
In comments to reporters before heading to Arlington Cemetery for Memorial Day commemorations, Joe Biden’s focus was instead on ammunition – 9 mm ammo, in particular. His people should stop him because anytime he makes such comments, he always says things that are just not true.
"The 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body." – President Joe Biden

Biden’s full quote on .22 vs 9mm ammo:
"The .22 caliber bullet will lodge in the lungs and we can get it out. A 9 mm bullet blows the lung out of the body. The idea of a high caliber weapon, there is no rationale for it in terms of self-protection, hunting."

“The .22 caliber bullet will lodge in the lungs and we can get it out,” Biden claimed a doctor told him. “A 9 mm bullet blows the lung out of the body. The idea of a high caliber weapon, there is no rationale for it in terms of self-protection, hunting.”
Biden continued with a common lie that he tells to push restrictions on the Second Amendment:
"The Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute. You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed," Biden said. "I think things have gotten so bad that everybody is getting more rational about it."

Joe Biden has no idea what he’s talking about when it comes to guns. He’s going after 9 mm ammo because he thinks it can “blow the lung out of the body”? That’s unrelated to reality. It’s one of the most popular bullets in the world, used in numerous guns. It shows that he’s not just thinking about AR-15s, but he’s thinking about handguns as well.
Biden says that you don’t need it for self-protection. Then tell me, Joe, what does the Secret Service carry when they are protecting you? I’m willing to bet if you checked you find some carrying 9 mm pistols. Reports in 2019 indicated that the Secret Service was switching to things like the 9 mm Glock 19. So you’re entitled to it for your protection but you want to deny it to anyone else? If it’s so wrong (it isn’t) and isn’t necessary, then why is your Secret Service using it to protect you?
It’s not the first time that he’s talked about 9mm weapons. He seems to be talking about so-called “high capacity” magazines here.

As we’ve noted in the past, he’s also lying about the Second Amendment and the cannon. Yes, you could buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed. He’s gotten four Pinocchios in the past from the Washington Post, but he just keeps lying about it.
He doesn’t care about the truth; this is just about trying to justify restrictions on the Second Amendment.
His latest remarks sparked great concern about what he might be thinking.
