Biden signals support for banning most popular U.S. handgun — the 9mm
(Worthy News) – President Joe Biden on Monday signaled support for banning firearms that shoot 9mm rounds, the most popular bullet caliber in the world.
“Look, when I first started doing hearings on the issue of what rational gun laws should be, it was during a period when I was a senator and the death rate was going up,” Biden told reporters outside of the White House nearly one week after 19 children were killed in an elementary school shooting. “Not that many more people were being shot, but the death rate was up.”
The president then recounted a conversation he had at least two decades ago with a New York trauma doctor: “I said, ‘Why are they dying?’ And they showed me X-rays. He said, ‘A .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out, may be able to get it, and save the life. A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.'” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
