Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden essentially pushed a ban on all semiautomatic firearms Thursday night during a CNN town hall.

Biden talked of meeting with victims’ families after the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary attack and also meeting with families from the February 14, 2018, Parkland high school attack.

He said he committed in both instances to secure more gun control.

He said:

I made a commitment that I’m going to do everything in my power in office or out of office to get those assault weapons off the street, which I have done once already. And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.

GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest tweeted video of Biden making the comments:

Targeting guns with “clips that have multiple bullets in them” is essentially going after all semiautomatic rifles, shotguns, and pistols.

Biden made clear that he wants to ban suppressors as well.
