Why Joe Biden is still pushing for assault weapons ban
For two days, Vice President Joe Biden has insisted that the assault weapons ban can still pass, even after the Senate dropped it. He has three reasons to keep making noise.
For the second day in a row, Vice President Joe Biden made an emotional plea for gun-control legislation – including an assault weapons ban that Senate majority leader Harry Reid has already removed from the bill, saying it can’t pass.
I will ensure that a ban on assault weapons, limits to high-capacity magazines, and mental health provisions receive votes.
