During a Town Hall meeting hosted by CNN, Joe Biden didn’t hide where he stands on gun ownership.
At one point of the the meeting Biden went on record and said handguns like 9mm and pistols should be banned.
He then said that he’s “continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things” the “things” he was referring to was any gun that is able to fire multiple rounds.
Watch the moment he said it here:

There it is. Biden outright says he wants to ban handguns.
He also says crime is down, which is an utterly insane lie.

They're not hiding their intentions. Joe Biden says he wants to ban handguns — not merely AR-15s like their previous dishonest talking points suggested. Watch Biden stumble through this town hall answer. pic.twitter.com/DI3CDTN1wL

The Daily Wire had more on the story:
President Joe Biden suggested during a CNN town hall on Wednesday night that he is pushing to eliminate the sales of pistols along with rifles that have the ability to fire multiple rounds.
“I’m the only guy that ever got — passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” Biden said. “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.”
“I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things, but I’m not likely to get that done in the near term,” Biden added.
Biden is not hiding their intentions. They want to ban handguns.

The Town Hall meeting Biden was speaking at was barely filled, the New York Post had more to report on the low attendance:
Biden on Wednesday spoke to a half-empty auditorium while doing a live CNN “town hall” event in Ohio.
The more than dozen empty rows weren’t apparent to television viewers thanks to flattering shots that appeared to show a full, non-distanced crowd packing the front rows — in a striking visual display of normalcy after more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions.
But members of the traveling White House press pool shared photos from the back of the room, revealing that, in fact, the venue was far from packed at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati.
Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Epstein, who traveled with Biden as a representative of wire services, tweeted an image of “[w]hat the Biden CNN town hall looks like from the back of the auditorium”
Voice of America reporter Steve Herman, the radio pool reporter for the trip, tweeted a similar image showing that the “[b]ack of the auditorium is empty.”

Look at how empty the building was, it definitely doesn’t look like someone who got “81 million votes”.
