The progressive Left is influencing Biden’s current gun control stance. Biden is playing politics with gun control. On June 2022, USA Today reported as true that Biden said: “During my twelve-and-a-half years as a member of this body [US Congress], I have never believed that additional gun control or federal registration of guns would reduce crime.” Biden knows that focusing on gun control to control crime is a false narrative.
Guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are the cause of rising crime, according to the progressive Left. The liberal politicians, big city liberal mayors, and gun-hating activists who favor turning criminals loose and other crime-enhancing policies blame rising gun sales and increased numbers of concealed-carry permits for the rising crime in their soft-on-crime cities. More guns do not beget more gun crime.
