President Joe Biden is protected by semi-automatic firearms, but told reporters on Thanksgiving morning that he could not understand how sales of semi-automatic weapons continued because they had “no social redemption value”.
Biden said, “The idea that we still allow the purchase of semi-automatic weapons is sick. It has no redeeming social value.
Ironically, Biden is protected by semi-automatic handguns. The US Secret Service recently switched from Glock handguns to Sig Sauer pistols, and both Glock and Sig are semi-automatic pistols.
(Can you even imagine a world in which Secret Service agents are standing around with six-shot guns in their holsters?)
After criticizing semi-automatics, Biden pledged again on Thanksgiving to ban “assault weapons.”
Ironically, again, Biden is protected by “assault weapons”.
Breitbart News reported that Biden received a detail from the Secret Service during the 2020 presidential campaign and since then agents have been around him 24/7 to ensure his safety.
A source told Breitbart News such a detail meant Biden would be protected by semi-automatic pistols and rifles — possibly ARs and/or Sig Sauer MCX platform firearms. There was also the strong possibility that fully automatic firearms would be part of the equation. This last category of firearms includes submachine guns, such as the H&K MP5. (An MP5 is a real “assault weapon”.)
🚨LATEST NEWS: President @JoeBiden spends Thanksgiving demonizing gun owners and ALL semi-automatic firearms.
“No one is trying to take your guns” is one of his biggest lies spewed at the American people. pic.twitter.com/7qoQNY6nFI

Biden’s agents rely on semi-automatic platform firearms to protect him from bad guys, but Biden is critical of selling such weapons to average citizens who need to protect their own daily lives. Key phrase: “No redeeming social value.”
