    President Joe Biden said Monday that Republicans who voted against banning assault rifles are not on the side of police in America.

    Speaking virtually to attendees at the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives conference in Orlando, Florida, Biden said that Republicans who refused to ban so-called "weapons of war" are not telling the truth when they claim to support law enforcement. In particular, Biden called out Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott (R-FL) for refusing to support Democrats' gun control efforts.

    "Being a cop today is a hell of a lot harder than it's ever been," Biden said during his speech. "We expect everything of you. We expect you to be drug counselors to people overdosing at a scene; therapists to couples during a violent confrontation; social workers to kids who have been abandoned. Maybe worst of all, we send you out to do your job on the streets flooded with weapons of war."

    "You hear a lot of politicians say about how much they love you, how much they care about you, they'll do anything for you," Biden continued. "In the state you're in today, Governor [Ron] DeSantis, Sen. [Marco] Rubio, Sen. Rick Scott all opposed banning assault weapons, and Senators Scott and Rubio voted against the bipartisan gun safety law that I signed, the first meaningful gun legislation in nearly thirty years, that you supported. To me, it's simple. If you can't support banning weapons of war on American streets, you're not on the side of police."

    Biden also credited NOBLE for backing his efforts to pass the 1994 assault weapons ban. "I'm determined to do it again," Biden said of renewed efforts to ban assault weapons. "On the ballot this year will be whether or not this nation bans assault weapons." Biden then repeated the line that, while he owns guns and "believe[s] in the Second Amendment," the right to keep and bear arms "[is] not a right that is absolute."

    "When it comes to assault weapons, too many politicians are bowing down to the NRA. I believe that we should protect you, protect you." Biden then repeated the claim that he supports more funding for police. "And I'll keep saying it: when it comes to public safety, the answer isn't to defund the police, the answer is to fund the police, fund the police."

    Biden closed his speech by invoking January 6, claiming that police officers were "speared, sprayed, stomped on, brutalized" and "dripping with blood, surrounded by carnage." Biden attacked former President Donald Trump, saying that Trump could not claim to support law enforcement because of January 6, and insinuating that law enforcement officers shouldn't support Trump. "You can't be pro-insurrection and pro-cop," Biden said. "You can't be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy. You can't be pro-insurrection and pro-America."

    Last month, Biden signed the "Bipartisan Safer Communities Act" into law. The law was considered the most expansive gun control legislation passed in decades, as the Daily Wire reported. A White House statement said at the time that the law "enhances certain restrictions and penalties on firearms purchases; promotes evidence-based best practices for school safety; authorizes grants to expand access to mental health services; and appropriates emergency funding for mental health resources and school safety measures."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
