While everyday Americans are struggling to pay skyrocketing grocery and gas prices, the Biden administration seemingly has a much higher priority — banning “ghost” guns.
According to the New York Post, President Joe Biden on Monday touted executive actions his administration will take to make sure ghost guns — firearms that are privately manufactured without a serial number — off the streets, even though such guns account for a small fraction of gun-related crimes.
But hey, it makes for great headlines for the base, which is something the struggling administration desperately needs as it continues to fail the country on a daily basis on virtually every issue facing America, both at home and abroad.
During a Rose Garden speech on Monday, Biden falsely claimed, “These guns are weapons of choice for many criminals,” adding “We’re going to do everything we can to deprive them of that choice. And when we find them, put them in jail for a long, long time.”
A number of people immediately mocked the last part of his sentence, as the country has a large number of soft-on-crime prosecutors who routinely let violent offenders out of prison far too early, especially in Democrat-led cities where gun violence is a serious issue.
Joe Biden’s ghost gun rule is an attack on the Second Amendment.
If Democrats actually want to curb the staggering violent crime rate they should focus on the woke DAs who refuse to prosecute violent criminals and the liberal city councils that are defunding the police.

“If you commit a crime in the ghost gun, expect federal prosecution — not just state, expect federal prosecution,” Biden said, barely able to string together a coherent sentence in many parts of his ghost gun speech.
Many also pointed out that gun-related violence tends to happen mostly in cities with literally the toughest gun laws on the books, with Chicago being one prime example. Critics say that that the easiest and most effective way to change that is to stop letting offenders out early and enforce already-written laws.
Democrats are truly desperate at this point in time. They know that the November midterms will be an extinction-level event, and they’ll do anything in the meantime to pander up some extra votes.
