During a CNN town hall on Wednesday, President Biden said he is “continuing to push” for a ban on weapons that can fire multiple rounds, including handguns.
The statement came after an audience member asked how he planned to address gun violence at the federal level “to actually bring about change and make our local cities safer.”
“I’m the only guy that ever got — passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” Biden responded. “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.”
“I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things, but I’m not likely to get that done in the near term,” Biden added.

He wants to ban hand guns. A complete demolition of the 2nd Amendment. pic.twitter.com/LeV8yCW9zO— DaybreakInsider (@DaybreakInsider) July 22, 2021
They're not hiding their intentions. Joe Biden says he wants to ban handguns -- not merely AR-15s like their previous dishonest talking points suggested. Watch Biden stumble through this town hall answer. pic.twitter.com/DI3CDTN1wL— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) July 22, 2021
There it is. Biden outright says he wants to ban handguns.— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) July 22, 2021
He also says crime is down, which is an utterly insane lie.
House Republicans vowed to never let Biden get away with stripping Americans' Second Amendment rights.
