President Joe Biden defended his record on gun control Friday at a press conference held with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
Biden was asked if he thought he needed to switch up his priorities to focus more on gun control rather than working so hard to get an infrastructure bill passed (that doesn’t even do much to help improve America’s infrastructure).
“Who in God’s name, needs a weapon that can hold 100 rounds, or 40 rounds, or 20 rounds?” he asked. “It’s just wrong.”
Biden blamed Republicans for blocking the House gun control bill and called on them to pass it. He also claimed that the majority of Americans support the bill and a ban on assault weapons.
The other main provision in the bill is universal background checks. Both provisions encroach on the Second Amendment rights of Americans, which is prohibited in the Constitution.
