No one could blame you for missing Biden’s televised national address last night.
After just a few minutes, Americans everywhere wished they could get those seconds back.
Addressing the recent mass shootings that have hit the nation, Biden made a call to reinstate the 1994 assault weapons ban.
BREAKING: Biden calls for the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban to be reinstated

Twitter ignited as Joe made threat after threat against the nation’s 2nd Amendment rights including taking away the ability to acquire a weapon until three years after being legally declared an adult.
Pres. Biden says the assault weapons ban should cover any category of semi-automatic weapons, like AK-47s and AR-15s

For most Americans watching, Biden’s statements rang hollow and lacked any teeth. This was the case for both people on the right and the left. Blue-haired liberals lacked their typical energy in coming out to support Joe’s call to action. In fact, Twitter was pretty silent on the Left. Here’s one of the few I could find:
Great address by President Biden,and another reminder of what a stupid ass the former guy was.

Wow, so original and creative. So why are Joe’s statements lacking any resonance or impact?
The first reason is because not even Joe Biden believes what he is saying. He’s gone on the record multiple times saying that gun laws don’t work.
“I am convinced that a criminal who wants a firearm can get one through illegal, untraceable, unregistered sources, with or without gun control.”
-Senator Joe Biden, 1985

It’s clear he’s being put up to this. The second reason Biden lacks any credibility in what he spoke on is because of hypocrisy.
It’s because Joe Biden and his family live under a different set of rules than the rest of America and ALL of America knows it. You just can’t support someone who you know doesn’t play by the same rules you do no matter how blue your hair may be.
I am of course speaking about Hunter Biden, who is in fact guilty of gun crimes but is yet to be prosecuted by anyone.
Shortly after the address, many were quick to point this out.
Hunter Biden is an admitted drug addict, which precludes one from buying a gun. Yet he was able to get a gun. Why? Because he lied about his drug use on his application. Does the President agree he should be prosecuted based on his address to the nation this evening?

Instead of taking gun crimes out on law abiding citizens, let’s crack down on the criminals like Hunter Biden and his connection to this gun. Imagine if Don Jr did this.
Secret Service linked to incident involving Hunter Biden’s gun – report https://t.co/6bSL8EnOfz

As the article cited in the Tweet states, Hunter Biden effortlessly skirted by every gun law put in place to prevent him, an alleged drug addicted walking DUI from getting a firearm. Here’s a snippet from the Guardian explaining how.
Politico said it had obtained copies of records relating to Hunter Biden’s purchase of the gun on 12 October 2018. It said he answered “no” to a question about unlawful use or addiction to “marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance”.
“Five years earlier,” the website said, “he had been discharged from the US navy reserve after testing positive for cocaine, and he and family members have spoken about his history of drug use.
The issue that Americans have is that Hunter was caught dumping his firearm that was illegally obtained and yet faced ZERO consequences. To make matters worse, reports show that the Secret Service was dispatched to help clean up the mess and make sure Hunter got off without any issue. They even went so far as to try and destroy the paper trail linking Hunter to the gun purchase.
The Secret Service reportedly approached the store where the gun was purchased, seeking to obtain all records of the transaction. The owner reportedly declined
Why would Biden expect to have any moral authority to lecture anyone about gun control? The audacity indeed.
Demented Biden talks a big game about gun crime. Yet his so Hunter Biden, a known drug addict lied on his gun paperwork and nothing ever happened….. https://t.co/5pWbfehlvV

Joe isn’t fooling anyone and people are not shy about making that fact clear. I love these tweets because it sums up the feelings of every person that supports the 2nd Amendment.
As soon as Hunter Biden goes to jail for 10 years for his gun crime, I will turn in my gun.

Until Hunter Biden is prosecuted for his firearm violation I don’t want to hear anything from @POTUS about gun control.
— Matthew Kolken (@mkolken) June 3, 2022
If Biden was serious about gun laws, then he would order the DOJ to prosecute Hunter for the ones he broke.

Ted Cruz took to Fox News to shred Joe to pieces regarding his address. Have a look here:

While I love Ted’s eloquence, I prefer the fire and passion in this address by Colorado rep Lauren Boebert, who’s facials reflect the disgust most Americans are likely feeling towards Joe.

It would all be extremely funny if it weren’t so infuriating. Regardless, it will be interesting to see what actually gets passed in the coming days. One thing we know for sure. No matter what laws get passed, Hunter Biden will always get a free pass as long as Joe’s in charge.
