Biden Vows To Ban So-Called Assault Weapons 'Come Hell Or High Water'
President Biden on Wednesday said he'll ban so-called 'assault weapons' and high-capacity magazines "come hell or high water" (thus ensuring that criminals are the only ones who have them).
"I know it may make some of you uncomfortable, but that little state above me, Delaware is one of them, has the highest rate, one of the highest rates of gun ownership," Biden said at the House Democratic Caucus Issues in Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday night.
"But guess what? We're going to ban assault weapons again come hell or high water and high capacity magazines. When we did it last time to reduce mass deaths," Biden said.

Last month the Biden DOJ announced that it would give $231 million to states to be used for crisis intervention, one day after a mass shooting at Michigan State University in East Lansing.
"These awards will support the kinds of crisis intervention programs that we know save lives and help protect children, families, and communities across the country from senseless acts of gun violence," said Attorney General Merrick Garland.
