Biden Audio: Assault Weapons Ban 'Just The Beginning'

Biden Audio: Assault Weapons Ban 'Just The Beginning': "Vice President Joe Biden on a conference call with "Mayors Against Illegal Guns:" "And lastly, but not least, the Assault Weapons ban and the limitation on the size of magazines, let me say this as clearly as I can: this is just the beginning. We believe that weapons of war have no place on our streets. That’s the message that the retired admirals and generals have spoken to us about. The comment one of them used was: if you want to learn how to use a semi-automatic weapon, join the United States military, but these are weapons of war, and we believe there’s no rational reason why someone would need a clip that can hold fifteen, twenty, thirty, one-hundred bullets, one-hundred rounds. We have to do more and we will do more.""
One hundred rounds?  And the military gets to decide what we can have?  Who rules who?

This is the same genius that recently brought us:
I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming.
This whole thing is factually wrong from start to finish including the fact that any LEO will tell you that firing your shotgun through the door will land you in jail -- even probably in Texas or Wyoming.

But lucky for us they're not coming for our guns.

And there's no historical commentary about this from founders and well known supreme court justices on this topic (also here).  That is being flushed down the memory hole O course.
