Fact-Checking CNN’s ‘Fact-Check’ On Joe Biden’s Gun Confiscation Plan

Following Joe Biden’s finger-pointing tirade in which he called a Detroit construction worker a horse’s ass when he dared to ask the candidate about his gun control agenda, the Biden campaign needed of some damage control. That’s when the tireless journalists at CNN got to work to assure Americans that Ol’ Joe really doesn’t want to confiscate anyone’s firearms.

All evidence to the contrary.

They were so eager to clear up Joe’s position regarding the RKBA that they had Holmes Lybrand put together a handy post, Fact-checking Joe Biden’s recent comments on gun control.

Facts First: Biden’s gun control plan does not include confiscating legally owned weapons and an interpretation of a “viral video” is a mishearing of what was said. The former vice president has said in the past that a Biden administration would come for people’s “assault weapons.”

See? You just “misheard” Joe. But Biden’s plan is to make “assault weapons” NFA items and regulate them like machine guns. He would offer gun owners three choices.

  • “Sell” your guns to the government at a price it sets.
  • Face felony arrest and confiscation of your guns.
  • Pay the government for to beg permission to keep them. If permission is not granted, see above options.

The devil, as always, is in the details. By what date would one need to have an NFA tax stamp for their AR-15? Will the deadline actually allow enough time to register several million firearms?

One bill to make “assault weapons” NFA items, H.R. 1263, was deliberately designed to give a mere 120 days to get a stamp…when it takes months to get something like that done.

Lybrand then went on to correct a couple of misrepresentations Uncle Joe is fond of spouting about “smart” guns and machine guns, but make no mistake. If he’s elected president in November, he — with the help of his gun control czar, Beto O’Rourke — is coming your guns.

CNN may be valiantly trying put lipstick on the Biden “assault weapon” ban pig, but it’s still confiscation any way you look at it.

    Joe’s dementia is so severe the he doesn’t even know when he is lying. In other works, he doesn’t know when he is speaking

      A little OT, but in follow-up to the two recent articles regarding our L.A. Sheriff Villanueva’s decision to close down all gun and ammo sales, then reverse his decision after public pressure and a referendum vote by the City Council, he has apparently re-reversed his decision after he received a call from Governor Newsom:

      “After the governor’s clarification yesterday of what my authority was on this subject, we definitely let it be known that we’re going to proceed forward and we’re going to shut down gun sales and ammunition sales outside of law enforcement and private security organizations within the county,” Villanueva said.

      See that, sheeples? He’s wants to allow guns and ammo to be transacted for his own people, but not for you or me.

      1. avatar Red says:

        Yes that is the ‘Some Animals Are More Special Than Others’ Loophole.

        “Sheriff Alex Villanueva said earlier that a “loophole” had allowed gun shops to stay open, and many attracted long lines of customers. Villanueva said the order was meant to keep open gun and ammunition businesses that support police departments and other security organizations.” …so they can keep themselves and their families safe.

      3. avatar LarryinTX says:

        Wait, what? Why do the po-po need more guns and ammo than they already have? Are they foreseeing expending a large amount of ammo in the course of their daily duties, in the near future? Do they figure they are going to wear out their guns while driving around an area which is locked down? If the order is to be temporary, why not just make it for everybody?

    2. avatar frank speak says:

      Joe has picked his side…with little middle ground apparent….now let’s see where it takes him….

  2. avatar TheUnspoken says:

    People’s so called assault weapons are legally owned, and we do not want them declared illegal, nor banned, because we want to continue to buy whatever guns we want, specifically the so called assault weapons, indefinitely.

  3. avatar Dennis says:

    Now why would we not believe Brain dead Biden and CNN?

  4. avatar Sam I Am says:

    Listen up, people !

    You are entitled to your opinion, regardless of how useful, or worthless it may be. Just as I have a right to my opinion (which is always superior to yours). However…..

    You are not entitled to your own facts. If your facts contradict mine, you are the loser; your facts are fake news. If I, or my campaign, say you don’t have to worry about gun confiscation, then that is fact…regardless of what you read or hear (even from me).

    Joe (I believe in truth over facts) quid pro quo Biden

      While we would be happy to be rid of him wouldn’t wish him on the rest of the country.

    2. avatar RayS says:

      I’ve been wondering the same thing. They mite keep Bernie churning, only to cause a brokered convention, and slip cuomo in. That does worry me – cuomo is pretty sharp and could unify the left.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        You’re not going to get a brokered convention out of 2 candidates, one has to have more than 50%.

        1. avatar Gonna Vote Republican anyway says:

          Unless the DNC convinces enough states that have not had a primary to cancel them. If no one has the magic number of 1991 pledged delegates it will be thrown open at the convention. The DNC will then loose their “Super Delegates” and put whoever they want as the nominee.

  6. avatar Hannibal says:

    “Biden’s gun control plan does not include confiscating legally owned weapons.”

    Very comforting.

    “Your guns are now illegal.”


    1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

      In Joe’s word(s)… “Bingo”

      But per CNN I misheard that.

    2. avatar Mark N. says:

      Ding! (By which we catch CNN’s fact checker lying through his teeth through omitting a pertinent fact (or assumption) that “assault weapons” will be declared illegal and thus not “lawfully owned.”

      1. avatar DinWA says:

        “Imparts movement to an object” = “Assault weapon”

      1. avatar Herb Allen says:

        Not being snarky, I promise you. The best advice on organized resistance I have heard (Matt Bracken?) is to belong to small groups of trusted individuals, which often consist of one’s fellow churchgoers.

        Of state level militias it has been said for years that half the membership is FBI agents, and the other half is BATFE informants. Change my mind.

  8. avatar Texican says:

    Wonder what the dems plans are if Biden can’t make it thru the election? Not that he has any hope of being elected because Trump will wipe the debate floor with him. It will be glorious and a little sad at the same time.

    1. avatar rosignol says:

      If Joe loses, the plan is four more years of ‘Resistance’!

      Which is why Pelosi needs to be demoted to House minority leader.

      1. avatar Paul says:

        Actually, I’m looking for a lot of politicians between the ages of 60 and 100 to die of Corona virus. No need to demote Pelosi when she’s six feet underground.

        And, this post is nonpartisan – we need a lot of those Republicans to drop dead as well. Career politicians are a large part of what is wrong with this country.

    As has been noted before I would worry more about his VP choice who will take over when he has “stroke“, dementia or other reason to step down. Hillary has been suggested

    2. avatar Southern Cross says:

      What position is Hillary on the order of succession? There would have to be a lot of accidents for her to become president. Something like combined simultaneous plane crashes on to the sitting Congress and Senate chambers.

      1. avatar Sam I Am says:

        “What position is Hillary on the order of succession?”


        If she is VP, and Biden cannot function, she becomes president, making her first in line of succession.

        Maybe I just don’t understand your question.

      2. avatar MLee says:

        @ Southern Cross
        Currently Hildabeast is in ZERO Line of succession to the top job. She holds no office that puts her in line.
        Now when she was Secretary of State under Obummer, she was #4

        To be president, everyone and I mean everyone would have to be dead to the point that if she was still alive, people might say….well you were pretty close at one time and you know the ins and outs, so what the hell, go for it, the job is yours BIOOOTCH!

      3. avatar rosignol says:

        Currently? Same as any other private citizen, ‘no position whatsoever’.

      4. avatar Steponbugs says:

        Any use of the words “Hillary” and “position” in the same sentence should be banned.

  14. avatar John Boch says:

    Joe Biden? Is he still a thing?

    He can’t even remember the Pledge of Allegiance.

    PLEASE let him be the nominee. Pretty please!

    1. avatar Sam I Am says:

      “PLEASE let him be the nominee.”

      For which office?

    2. avatar Defens says:

      Given the choice, I’d vote for the coronavirus for the office of President before Biden. Even a non-sentient protein is smarter and more honest.

  15. avatar StLPro2A says:

    Oh, to see on the evening news…..Butto O’Dork being the first one through the gun confiscation door. Here Butto, help yourself to these 00s. Joey is gonna’ laugh his ass off at Butto. Joey is senile, but his handlers aren’t stupid.

  18. avatar tinhats says:

    Joe’s only after assault weapons. What are assault weapons to Joe and Beto? I’m guessing eventually everything.

    1. avatar Herb Allen says:

      If it’s not Creepy Joe’s favorite, a double barrel shotgun that you fire through the screen door, then it’s an assault weapon.

    2. avatar Paul says:

      No, not just anything. Only the ones that go “Bang” and are audible from more than three feet away. That should cover everything . . .

  19. avatar enuf says:

    Biden is showing signs of cognitive decline, not uncommon for someone of his years. Between the campaign ammunition his cognitive gaffes hands to Trump, and his isolation to avoid catching COVID-19, Biden’s in a lousy position right now.

    Joe Biden and CNN. What Filth.

  21. avatar WI Patriot says:

    If he’ll agree to the first one through the door, I’ll agree to give up my guns…

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Me, too, but when he comes thru my door, he’d discover I know how to lie, too!

  22. avatar David Bradford says:

    “…designed to give a mere 120 days to get a stamp…when it takes months to get something like that done.”
    Even with the relatively small number of NFA Tax Stamps issued each year, mine took 350+ days to be approved last year. It would take them 10 years or more to clear the back up.

    Technically, he didn’t call the guy a horse’s ass. He called him a “dog faced pony soldier.”

      or not – that was a woman. Whatever! He’s insane!

  26. avatar Ken a saw says:

    ATTENTION: A reminder, if you elect a Democrat, for any office position, you will have this kind of moronic behavior to deal with. They must be alien life forms because none of them have a clue what’s going on or what they say. Then it’s damage control time. I’m a moderate PNA so this is not a political prejudice. Just a guy that pays attention and is allergic to bull shitery. Just say’in
