“Over the weekend, Vice President Kamala Harris called for an all-out ban of ‘assault weapons.’ ‘We know what works on this. It includes, let’s have an assault weapons ban,’ Harris told reporters in Buffalo after attending the funeral of a victim. On Thursday, President Joe Biden, while speaking from the White House Cross Hall before a candlelit backdrop, called on Congress to pass new gun control legislation, including a ban on assault weapons. ‘How much more carnage are we willing to accept?’ Biden asked. There are numerous problems with this proposal, starting with the sticky question of defining what an ‘assault weapon’ is.” (06/06/22)
