Karine Jean-Pierre Walks Back Joe Biden’s Call to Ban Sale of Semi-Automatic Guns (VIDEO)

Who’s really in charge?

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday walked back Joe Biden’s call to ban the sale of semi-automatic guns.

On Thanksgiving Day, Joe Biden delivered a message to Americans saying he will get rid of assault weapons during a stop at Nantucket Fire Department.

“The idea — the idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick. It’s just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single, solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers,” Biden said.

*Most* guns are semi-automatic and Joe Biden has no authority to ban guns.

“…I’m going to try to get rid of assault weapons,” he added.


A White House reporter on Monday asked KJP if Biden misspoke or does he in fact want to ban all semiautomatic weapons (pretty much all guns).

Karine Jean-Pierre walked back Biden’s statement.

“No, he was talking about assault weapons,” KJP said.

What exactly is an “assault weapon”?
