By Larry Keane Biden’s one-two punch to destroy gun rights. IMG iStock 1006291908 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- President Joe Biden is throwing out just a few feeler jabs in his gun control fight.

President Biden’s Misfire on ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban ~ VIDEO

By Larry Keane U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- President Joe Biden ran on being a “listener,” and bringing “unity” and “healing” to America. He’s not listening though.

Instead of listening to voters, President Biden ignored them and is calling to ban the AR-15, or modern sporting rifle (MSR), and...
