During his recent State of the Union address, President Biden demonized AR-15s as “assault weapons” even though they aren’t.
That’s obvious enough for anyone with knowledge of firearms.
With AR-15s, only one cartridge is expended each time the trigger is pressed, and these rifles are used for lawful purposes every day, with more than 24.4 million in circulation today. Biden failed to mention that more than half of the country opposes his proposed ban on millions of firearms, as the National Shooting Sports Foundation recently reported.

But this is only the tip of the iceberg for Biden’s war on the Second Amendment.
With the exception of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (which didn’t ban or place restrictions on specific types of firearms, but did dump hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into mental health programs), Biden’s administration hasn’t made much headway with gun control through Congress. So the commander-in-chief and his stewards decided to weaponize the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) instead.
Neither Joe Biden nor the ATF has the constitutional authority to ban guns or any parts of guns.
