It seems that the list of gun-related topics President Joe Biden is “not joking” about continues to grow.

On numerous occasions, when making his ignorant assertion that, “Deer don’t wear Kevlar vests,” the president has followed that with a terse, “I’m not joking.” Now, apparently, he’s not joking about banning popular semi-auto firearms legally owned and used by millions of lawful Americans.

“By the way, I'm going to get an assault weapons ban,” Biden told Jake Tapper during an Oct. 11 CNN interview. “Before this is over, I'm going to get that again. Not a joke, and watch.”

Before you chuckle, Biden is actually closer to getting his biggest anti-gun wish than he has been since taking office, despite a Quinnipiac University poll in June showing support for a so-called “assault weapons” ban had fallen to the lowest point since the pollster began asking about such a ban way back in 2013.
