Democrat President Joe Biden refuses to respect the nation’s highest law.
Biden is cracking down on constitutional protections that defend every American’s right to keep and bear arms.
He claimed nothing is above his gun control executive order, not even the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
“No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” he said in a statement.
Biden also criticized the First Amendment for barring U.S. Congress from introducing laws that prevent free speech.
“You cannot yell [into a] crowd. You cannot tell [yell] ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech,” he said.
If the incumbent had his way, gun control would have been introduced hundreds of years ago at the nation’s founding on July 4, 1776.
“From the very beginning, you could not own any weapon you wanted to own,” he said. “From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people were not allowed to have weapons, so the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we are recommending are contrary to the Constitution.”
Biden seemed to contradict himself when he claimed preventing some people from owning certain types of firearms did not violate the constitutional right to bear arms.
“Nothing, nothing I am about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” he said. “They are phony arguments, suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we are talking about.”
He then compared shootings to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus and suggested his gun control executive order would help contain the other deadly disease.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” he said. “Let me say it again: gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it is an international embarrassment.”
It’s not the first controversial announcement from President Biden. He previously accused Georgia Republicans of being intellectually challenged because Gov. Brian Kemp signed Senate Bill 202, which requires voters to produce identification for absentee ballots, limits drop boxes, and changes early voting hours.
“The best way to deal with this is for Georgia and other states to smarten up,” he said in an earlier statement.
He claimed the voting law would make it harder for working Georgians to cast their ballot and demanded that the new law be withdrawn immediately.
“Stop it, stop it, it is about getting people to vote,” he said.
He also made unsubstantiated claims that the bill was “sick” because it ends voting at 5 p.m. and deprives those who work regular business hours of the opportunity to vote before their shift ends.
However, a recent fact-check published in the Washington Post found the law still gives counties the power to extend voting hours when the need arises. Based on this inconsistency, the publication awarded the president “four Pinocchios” for repeatedly making false and misleading statements because “normal business hours” are widely considered to be between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
“A Georgia election official said the change was made in part because some rural county election offices only worked part-time during the week, not a full eight-hour day. The shift to more specific times makes it clear they must be open every weekday for at least eight hours,” fact-checker editor Glenn Kessler reported.
“But, as noted, the law also allows individual counties to set the hours anywhere between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., so the practical effect of the 5 p.m. reference in the law is minimal,” he added.
