Biden declares, ‘No amendment to Constitution is absolute’ as he rolls out gun measures:
President Biden on Thursday announced a slew of new gun control measures after a recent pair of high-profile mass shootings, and insisted the Second Amendment doesn’t grant an absolute right to own guns.
Biden presented the executive actions in the Rose Garden, joined by Attorney General Merrick Garland and Vice President Kamala Harris.
“No amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” Biden maintained, pointing to the famous Supreme Court ruling that you can’t yell fire in a crowded theater as part of the First Amendment’s free speech clause.
“You can’t yell … ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE

The Lone Star State Republican blasted Mr. Biden on Thursday for a “liberal power grab to take away our guns” after a White House speech on the issue.
Mr. Biden told Americans that he planned to end an “epidemic” of violent crime linked to firearms while stressing “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”
“Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights,” Mr. Abbott countered on Twitter. “He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns. We will NOT allow this in TX.” --->READ MORE HERE
