Evidently, the trip to Uvalde went off the rails, and President Brandon said the quiet part out loud. He recalled talking to medical personnel in a trauma ward.
“They said a .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out — may be able to get it and save the life,” Biden told reporters outside of the White House. “A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”
So, it's the 9mm he wants to ban, while saying that a .22 caliber might be okay.
Looking through my gun rack, I'm struck by the thought that all of my "evil assault rifles" fire a .22 caliber bullet. And I note that the two most recent shooters in Buffalo and in Uvalde were both using .22 caliber rifles. I wonder how long it wil be before the President's cabal starts walking these comments back?
"So, the idea of these high-caliber weapons is, uh, there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of self-protection, hunting," Biden added. "Remember, the Constitution was never absolute."
Our President is addled, divisive, and cognitively impaired.
