President-elect Joe Biden vowed to defeat the National Rifle Association (NRA) in a statement marking the 10th anniversary of the assassination attempt on former Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords in Tucson that left six people dead.

Biden tweeted to Ms. Giffords:

“Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others.

I pledge to continue to work with you — and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country — to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”

Of course, Joe Biden also Pledged To Cure Cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Diabetes if he was elected President.

But I digress

In a statement on his transition website, Biden thanked Ms. Giffords for her anti-gun activism since the 2011 attack, in which the then-congresswoman was shot in the head and left with a traumatic brain injury and paralysis that ended in her eventual resignation.

“Like so many survivors of violence, Gabby has turned tragedy into purpose, working with other leaders across the country to transform the fight for gun safety reform from a cause to a movement,” the president-elect wrote. “Every day she fights to make our communities safer and move us closer to our goal of a nation free from gun violence.”

The NRA responded to Mr. Biden in a tweet Sunday urging gun owners to “stay vigilant” in defending their right to bear arms under the incoming administration.

“On Friday, Biden pledged to DEFEAT THE NRA,” the group wrote. “Biden wants to ban our semi-auto rifles, tax our guns/mags & more. He knows the only thing standing in his way to DISMANTLE THE 2ND AMENDMENT is NRA. Gun owners must stay vigilant & be engaged in elections and the legislative process.”

Joe Biden Pledges To Defeat NRA

Joe Biden has promised, As president, he’ll ban:

  • The manufacture and sale of so-called “assault weapons
  • High-capacity magazines.
  • Institute a national buyback program so owners of existing so-called “weapons of war” can either sell them to the government or register them under the National Firearms Act, according to his campaign website.

Joe Biden also wants to:

  • Limit the number of firearms people can buy to one per month.
  • Prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.
  • Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns”.
  • Demand gun manufacturers, dealers, and other public and private entities accelerate our transition to smart guns.
