Nancy Pelosi Pushes ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban After Denver Handgun Attack

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pushed an “assault weapons” ban in the wake of Wednesday’s handgun attack at Denver East High School.

She was speaking at a gun control rally on Thursday when she called for the ban.

Pelosi tweeted:

NPR reported that the 17-year-old East High School attacker used a handgun. This means an “assault weapons” ban would not, in any way, have prevented the attack from occurring.

On February 15, 2023, Breitbart News noted that President Biden responded the Michigan State University handgun attack by pushing an “assault weapons” ban.

Biden also pushed for universal background checks. However, WWMT observed that the MSU gunman had two handguns, both of which were “purchased legally.”

To say guns were legally purchased is to say that they were acquired via background checks. Therefore, neither Biden’s “assault weapons” ban nor his universal background checks would have prevented the MSU shooting.
