Joe Biden intends on clearing all kind of weapons away from the streets, reestablishing the Assault Weapons Ban, that was filed at the Congress in 1994 and “sunsetted” in 2004 under the Bush administration.
“The second amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people own. You can’t buy a bazooka or a flamethrower,” Biden said.
Moreover, Biden does not want to impound owned weapon, he is eager to make a national buyout program to clear away from public use.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden says that as president he would institute a national buy-back program for assault weapons, adding that when it comes to preventing gun violence, Americans must “take on the gun manufacturers as well as the NRA.” https://t.co/XTbTzenoqi pic.twitter.com/SfiOy2nOZ3

“That’s not walking into their home, walking through their door and going through the gun cabinets, etc. Right now, there is no legal way to deny them the right if they legally purchased them, but we can in fact make a major effort to get them off the street and out of the possession of people,” Biden said in the interview.
Besides, it is not the first Biden’s attempt to urge for a weapon ban. Joe Biden and his counterpart Barack Obama has agreed to support the petition against assault weapons in 2016 that followed Orlando’s mass shooting with 49 deaths.
The 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden thinks that this situation can be improved after he runs for president.
