Now saying that, I really really dislike handguns. They generally have one purpose, shooting each other. Yes, it can be used for "defense" to shoot someone, but it still boils down to, the main purpose of a handgun is for shooting a person.

I have had shotguns since I was around 9 years old. I currently have a 12 gauge with a trigger lock that has never been removed and the gun has never once been fired. I will always have it, whether I have the need to fire it or not.

To get even more blunt, I think handguns are for cowards. I always smirk at the little cowards walking around with handguns strapped to their waists to make sure everyone knows they are armed. If I am so scared to leave the house without a gun then I dont deserve to leave the house.


You would reconsider these words if you were stuck in the southside of Chicago at night. Detroit? C'mon man there are plenty of places that you would be extremely happy to have a fully loaded hand gun. Otherwise take the beating, hospital stay or even possibly the end of your existence. Food for thought. NEVER SAY NEVER.

Haha, I live in Memphis.. I grew up in a 95% black neighborhood, went to an 80% black school. Spent the last 20 years contracting work from the health department in the lead programs, spending every single working day in houses in the worst neighborhoods in Memphis. I have had a gun in my face on 3 seperate occasions and never needed a gun to handle the situation. But, I am not a coward who feels they have to have a gun to leave the house so I already had the upper hand.

but but the covid shot might kill me.... hah

So, you had your wallet stolen 3 times I take it? Otherwise, you werent in a "bad" neighborhood and you didnt handle sh*t.

Politifact Spreads Some Misinformation to Clean up Joe Biden's Mess


Quote:But one of his worst interactions was when Biden admitted he wanted to get rid of various guns.

Biden literally says it in the video, wedged in amongst another lie — that crime is down. He claims he’s the only guy who got assault weapons banned when he was in the Senate. He said, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, one hundred and twenty shots from that weapon…whether it’s a nine-millimeter pistol or whether it’s a rifle is ridiculous.” “I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things,” he said. So no way out of it, he says he’s looking to ban weapons that can fire more than twenty shots, and specifically named a nine-millimeter pistol and rifles. That’s a lot of guns that would fall within that rubric.

But then Politifact claimed that no, Joe Biden didn’t say he wanted to ban handguns.



No, he didn’t say the words — “I want to ban handguns.” He just specifically said he would eliminate handguns that could fire over twenty shots including a nine-millimeter pistol. So, yes, he wants to eliminate a slew of handguns and rifles. That’s exactly what he said. Playing a word game to suggest he didn’t, isn’t fact-checking, it’s being deceitful.

“But regardless of the definition, neither term includes all handguns,” Politifact claims. The tweet didn’t say “all” handguns. So the fact-check itself needs fact-checking. Is Biden proposing a ban on some handguns? Yes, he is.

Now if this fact check wanted to ding the tweet for not being clear but admitted that it was a least partially true, then that might be accurate. But calling it false is itself false.

Politifact also claims that the clip pertains to banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. But Biden didn’t say that. He doesn’t say “eliminate the magazines,” he talks about eliminating the guns that have that capacity. He’s literally talking about any guns that “can have the ability.”

Politifact also claims what Biden is saying wouldn’t affect the most popular handguns. Again no one said anything about “popular,” that’s a spinning effort. But even that isn’t right. A Glock 19 has the potential capacity of more than 20 rounds and it’s one of the most popular handguns.

It must be nice for Democrats like Joe Biden to know they can say radical things like that — that would be wildly unpopular — but that Politifact and other fact-checkers will be there to help clean it up and spin for them.

“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.

And how many times have we heard "Nobody wants to take your guns."?
