(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Once again, ignoring the Second Amendment and the gun rights of Americans, Democrat President Joe Biden issued a statement on the 10th anniversary of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in which he demanded tighter gun control regulations nationwide.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School attack occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, and saw the massacre of 26 people, including 20 children and six staff members.
The shooting was committed by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who committed suicide as soon as first responders arrived.
The Sandy Hook attack is the deadliest school shooting and the fourth deadliest mass shooting in US history.
In his statement on the 10th year since the shooting, President Joe Biden insisted on prohibiting “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines.
Biden argued that the American public should have “societal guilt” because it hadn’t banned AR-15s, AK-47s, or the other firearms that Democrats call “assault weapons.”
The president touted the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, a gun control law that Congress passed over the summer with some Republican votes.
He stated, however, that “we must do more” as he deemed insufficient and inadequate gun control measures already in place.
“I am determined to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines like those used at Sandy Hook and countless other mass shootings in America,” Biden declared.
“Enough is enough. Our obligation is clear. We must eliminate these weapons that have no purpose other than to kill people in large numbers,” he elaborated.
The Democrat President made it clear he also believes that the Democratic Party can impose more limitations on Americans’ gun rights.
“It is within our power to do this – for the sake of not only the lives of the innocents lost, but for the survivors who still hope,” he argued.
A Breitbart News report pointed out that last week, Biden demanded more gun control measures on the day he decided to set free Viktor Bout, the “merchant of death.” The Russian arms smuggler supplied massive amounts of weapons to terrorists and rogue states around the globe.
Bout was convicted in 2011 by a US court to 25 years in prison for international arms trafficking.
Biden decided to swap him in a prisoner exchange with Putin’s Russia for WNBA player Brittney Griner, a much-criticized deal.
At the time, the Obama administration described Bout as one of the world’s most dangerous men.
“As the evidence at trial showed, Viktor Bout was ready to sell a weapons arsenal that would be the envy of some small countries. He aimed to sell those weapons to terrorists for the purpose of killing Americans. With today’s swift verdict, justice has been done and a very dangerous man will be behind bars,” then-United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said in 2011.
