Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway ripped into President Joe Biden’s “extreme” gun control speech on Thursday, declaring that “do something” is not a serious policy and that what he called for was “an impeachable offense.”
“He showed this was, for him, a partisan political approach. ‘Do Something’ is not a serious policy, but the actual policies that he listed are extremely troubling. I think it’s comforting for simple-minded people to think that restricting the Natural Right to keep and bear arms would solve all of our problems, that destroying the Constitution would solve our problems,” Hemingway fiercely declared following Biden’s speech on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“That is not true, and we have a Natural Right of self-defense to guard against tyranny in the Second Amendment. This is something that makes us American. And Joe Biden showed that he does not respect the Constitution. He does not support this Natural Right. That really is an impeachable offense to talk this way against something so foundational to the country,” she argued.
“But it was also just really divisive and unhelpful for him. And I think, you know, he helped people see what really is at play here. Very little of what he is talking about would actually prevent some of these horrible mass shootings. He kind of gave away the game when earlier this weekend, he talked about getting rid of, making it illegal to have handguns. This is a really extreme agenda. And he is misguided if he thinks this is going to be a political winner for him. I know they are desperate. But this is not going to sell well in this country,” Hemingway concluded.

Biden took to the airwaves on Thursday demanding that Congress implement extreme gun control in the United States following a spate of deadly mass shootings. His words echo those of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who has already banned 1,500 types of assault rifles in his country and is now seeking to ban handguns as well. Biden contends the Second Amendment is not carved in stone and that “the overwhelming majority of American people” want gun control.
The president wants to allow individuals whose loved ones are victims of armed psychotic killers to be able to sue gun manufacturers out of existence as an end-run around the Second Amendment. Bankrupting gun makers is one way to undermine the right to bear arms. Biden is also seeking sweeping new measures that would outlaw some rifles and high-capacity magazines, impose safe gun storage laws, strengthen background checks, and mandate nationwide red flag laws.
“We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” he asserted. “And if we can’t ban assault weapons, we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21.”
Conservatives blasted the anti-gun rhetoric from Biden.

“Where’s the lie?” Nicholas Fondacaro, who is the deputy managing editor for the Media Research Center, tweeted referring to Tucker Carlson’s comments on Biden. “Biden literally told people he was going to take their ARs away.”

“President Biden had the opportunity tonight to help unite the country,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) tweeted. “He didn’t. He lashed out at everyone who doesn’t share his gun control agenda. Then he demanded voters elect more Democrats. His worst speech yet.”

“Joe Biden wants to ban ‘assault weapons’ and ‘high capacity magazines’ yet Democrats refuse to prosecute violent crimes in Democrat cities all over the country, and refuse to protect your children at school with armed security,” Rep.

“None of these would improve the gun violence problem in this country. All of them satisfy the urge to ‘do something’ without actually doing anything useful, at great cost to the rights of people who follow the law. Let’s take just one example, ‘red flag’ laws,” Ohio Republican J.D. Vance tweeted.
