Monday during a campaign stop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, former VP Joe Biden suggested banning "assault-type weapons" and "magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them."
In response to the mass shooting over the weekend in Texas, Biden said: "On dealing with firearms, it is irrational, with all due respect for the governor of Texas, on the very day you see a mass shooting we’re talking about loosening access to have guns being able to take them places of worship, store it in school? It’s absolutely irrational. It’s all about special interests and it has to stop."
"The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them," Biden continued. "It’s absolute mindless. It’s no violation of the Second Amendment. It’s just a bow to special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA."
