President Joe Biden renewed his push for a ban on “high capacity” magazines Sunday morning, suggesting there is no “recreational justification” for a 100-round magazine.
It’s time for Congress to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
There’s no possible recreational justification for having a 100-round magazine.

Biden has pushed for an “assault weapons” throughout Presidency, even after high profile crimes in which “assault weapons” were not used.
For example, Breitbart News noted that Biden pushed an “assault weapons” ban in response to the Michigan State University shooting, which was carried out with a pistol.
On October 16, 2022, Breitbart News pointed out that Biden pushed an “assault weapons” ban after a Raleigh, North Carolina, attack was carried out with a shotgun.
On Thanksgiving 2022 Biden made more specific comments, voicing his consternation over the fact that “semiautomatic firearms” of any kind are sold to the public.
He said, “The idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick. It’s just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None.”
