Former Vice President and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden floated a radical anti-gun policy during a public press appearance in Iowa over the weekend, proposing a ban on magazines with multiple rounds.
“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them–it is absolutely mindless,” Biden told reporters.
“It is no violation of the Second Amendment. It is … just a bow to the special interest of the gun manufacturers and the NRA. It’s got to stop.”
Other Democratic candidates have proposed similarly strict anti-gun policies. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke said that he was “open” to a government mandatory gun buyback programs last month.
It’s unclear if Biden really wants to ban magazines with more than one round, as the the 76-year-old has a record of making gaffes and strange misstatements.
