President Biden encouraged lawmakers Tuesday to get a bill banning assault weapons to his desk and take immediate action following the mass shooting in Half Moon Bay, California, despite few specifics on what type of gun was used.

Authorities have indicated the gunman used a semiautomatic rifle, but have not said if the rifle is a so-called “assault” weapon.

At least seven people were shot dead and an eighth victim injured Monday afternoon at two separate locations in the northern California coastal city just south of San Francisco.


The suspect in the Half Moon Bay shooting was identified as 67-year-old Zhao Chunli, a disgruntled former employee.

In a separate shooting on Saturday at a Monterey Park dance club, the gunman was identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran, who shot himself as police were closing in.

However, in a statement, Biden called for a “federal Assault Weapons Ban and legislation that would raise the minimum purchase age for assault weapons to 21.”

Biden’s  demand to raise the age limit would not even apply to the Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay shootings.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre released a statement on behalf of Biden.  It reads:

Jill and I are praying for those killed and injured in the latest tragic shooting in Half Moon Bay, California. For the second time in recent days, California communities are mourning the loss of loved ones in a senseless act of gun violence.

Following a briefing from my homeland security team, I have directed my administration to ensure local authorities and the broader Half Moon Bay community have the full support of the federal government in the wake of this heinous attack.

Yesterday, Senator Feinstein — alongside Senators Murphy, Blumenthal and others — reintroduced a federal Assault Weapons Ban and legislation that would raise the minimum purchase age for assault weapons to 21. Even as we await further details on these shootings, we know the scourge of gun violence across America requires stronger action. I once again urge both chambers of Congress to act quickly and deliver this Assault Weapons Ban to my desk, and take action to keep American communities, schools, workplaces, and homes safe.

  1. What an idiot. Let’s send billions in weapons to Ukraine- with the money that working Americans paid for and try to take their guns from them at the same time what kind of communist garbage is this?

  2. Can we stop the bullshit with gun control. Yes guns can kill but it’s the nut jobs that shoot them. People kill and that’s the bottom line. How about we get law and order back. How about consequences for criminals. Biden and these out of touch with reality Democrats are to blame for all that is happening in this country. They have ruined what was once a beautiful country. They have had their agenda for some time now. Hope everyone that voted for this loser is happy.

  3. Oh shut up you deranged idiot !
    You’ve brought every thug you can find across the border ….and you let the other thugs demean our Law Enforcement.
    Selling our land to other countries , and they have their own police here on our soil. YOU know what’s going on ! The guns you take today …..will be all guns tomorrow !
    YOUR DISGUSTING !
    That bunch in Washington …ALL OF YOU ,
    America knows what you’ve done and doing .
    You woke socialist belly crawlers , you might not believe in a day of reckoning but that don’t mean it’s not coming . My question is …CAN YOU STAND THE HEAT ????

  4. I wish this idiot would take a gun and put the barrel in his mouth and pull the trigger. It is the only honorable thing left for him to do as he is the biggest POS ever.

  5. Hey numb nuts. Go F yourself. You aren’t the president. You’re just an old man moving your lips , nothing but BS coming out.

  6. I’d compare this president to Howdy Doody or Pinocchio? But that would be doing them a disservice. At least Pinocchio’s nose grew when he lied . Biden keeps a straight face and a shit eating grin ! He can go Fuck himself along with his gun policies .

  7. Someone should tell the Democrats that assault weapons are already banned. In the USA.
    The definition of assault weapon means it is a FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPON. WHICH ARE BANNED IN THE USA WITHOUT A FEDERAL LICENSE

    • Thank you. But the assholes who scream gun control are the ones who know nothing. We will never give up our guns that we got legally by applying for a gun permit and right to conceal carry. Anyone breaks into my house better be toting a toe ID tag and a body bag. They won’t walk out.

  8. Maybe if CA didn’t disarm their law abiding citizens with laws that make owning, carrying, buying or buying ammo so difficult and fearful, this wouldn’t be such a issue to defend themselves.
