Americans who buy semi-automatic weapons are ‘just sick’

President Joe Biden unleashed his distaste for semi-automatic weapons on Thanksgiving, vowing to ban them in the United States.

“The idea that we still allow the purchase of semi-automatic weapons is sick. Just sick,” he said. “It has no, no redeeming social value. Zero.”

The president commented to reporters while visiting a fire station on Nantucket Island during his Thanksgiving vacation. He brought pies to the firefighters for their Thanksgiving party.

But he also shared his thoughts on gun control when asked about the recent shooting at a Wal-Mart, where a manager allegedly opened fire on employees with a handgun, killing six people.

“Not a single solitary justification for this except profit for the gun makers,” Biden continued, after condemning the idea of ​​Americans buying semi-automatic firearms.

The president said he would continue to push for a ban on so-called “assault weapons” despite the loss of a majority by Democrats in the House of Representatives.

“I’ll do it every time – I have to make that assessment as I go in and start counting the votes,” he said.

Biden has repeatedly promised to ban so-called “assault weapons,” despite being powerless to do so.

“Who in the name of God has to have – has to have – the ability to fire between 30 and 200 rounds and five times the velocity of a regular rifle or pistol?” he launched at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania in October.
