Joe Biden Pushes for Extreme Gun Ban: ‘No Compromise’
2020 Democrat calls for move that would ban most handguns in America
Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden is pushing for a ban on all gun magazines - an extreme move that would effectively result in banning most handguns in America.
Former Vice President Biden told reporters Monday that he wants to ban magazines that hold "multiple bullets" — which means all magazines.
Biden made the far-left anti-Second Amendment remarks during a campaign stop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, while talking to the press.
The Democrat presidential candidate was voicing his anger at the state of Texas for allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms in places of worship in case they are forced to defend themselves from those who seek to harm others.
There should be "no compromise" on guns, Biden declared.
"And we're talking about loosening access, to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship, I mean, it is absolutely irrational. It's totally irrational," Biden insisted.
"The idea that we don't have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it's absolutely mindless."
"It's no violation of the Second Amendment," Biden falsely claimed.

According to the Daily Wire, Biden's extreme gun control push, if ever enacted, would effectively ban the overwhelming majority of handguns, all semi-automatic shotguns and rifles, and many hunting rifles which use magazines.

Another reporter asked Biden if there could be any compromise with Republicans on gun-related issues, to which Biden succinctly said, "no."
"None," Biden. "None on this. I think this is no compromise.
"This is one we have to just push, and push, and push, and push, and push."

Experts have said that many of the policy proposals Democrats are pushing would do little to nothing to address the tragedies that keep occurring.
Statistician Leah Libresco wrote in The Washington Post in 2017 that she used to wish that "the National Rifle Association would stop blocking common-sense gun-control reforms such as banning assault weapons, restricting silencers, shrinking magazine sizes and all the other measures that could make guns less deadly."
"Then, my colleagues and I at FiveThirtyEight spent three months analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year in the United States, and I wound up frustrated in a whole new way," Libresco wrote.
"We looked at what interventions might have saved those people, and the case for the policies I'd lobbied for crumbled when I examined the evidence."
