Democrat President Biden declared gun violence a disease that affects many people and has a significant impact on national health, loss of life, and even the economy.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” he said in a statement. “Let me say it again: gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it is an international embarrassment.”
Biden claims his revised Gun Control Act will help contain this so-called deadly disease by’ requiring firearm makers and vendors to add serial numbers and perform strict background checks on any potential customer. If a buyer is at risk of being a danger to themselves and others, he or she could be temporarily suspended from owning a gun.
“We are taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis but what is actually a public health crisis,” he said. “These laws allow a police or family member to petition a court in their jurisdiction and say, ‘I want you to temporarily remove from the following people any firearm they may possess because they are a danger’ … and the court makes a ruling.'”
The Biden administration compared shootings to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus and suggested his gun control executive order would help contain what he called an epidemic.
“Gun violence takes lives and leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country, even when it is not on the nightly news,” the White House said in a statement. “In fact, cities across the country are in the midst of a historic spike in homicides, violence that disproportionately impacts black and brown Americans.”
Biden then suggested fewer people would take their own life if they were barred access to firearms.
“To put this in perspective, more than half of all suicides, for example, involve the use of a firearm,” he said. “When a gun is not available an attempt at suicide, the death rate drops precipitously. States that have red flag laws have seen … a reduction in the number of suicides in their states.”
He also claimed fewer voters would attack Democrats if they did not have access to a gun.
“A close friend of Jill’s and mine, [former] Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) who is here … [and] was speaking with her constituents in front a grocery store in her state when she was shot, and a member of her staff was killed,” he said.
“To turn pain into purpose and demand that we take the action that gives meaning to the word ‘enough,’ enough, enough, enough, enough. Because what they want you to know, what they want you to do is not just listen,” he added.
Biden previously used an Easter holiday message to accuse every American who refuses the CCP Virus vaccine of being unable to tell the difference between right and wrong.
“We share the sentiments of Pope Francis, who has said that getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, one that can save your life and the lives of others,” he said in a video shared on Twitter.
Biden also blamed the jab’s conscientious objectors for delaying the Democratic Party’s decision to reopen the United States entirely.
“As we celebrate this most holy day, we know many are still going without familiar comforts of the season,” he said. “The virus is not gone, and so many of us still feel the longing and loneliness of distance. For a second year, most will be apart from their families, friends, the full congregations that fill us with joy.”
