Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Heard Biden lie. Falsely claiming that the ban on semi-automatic sporting rifles from 1994 to 2004 somehow cut down on violence and shootings as Katie pavlich points out at town hall, according to data provided by the Department of Justice, the ban can not be credited with reducing violence or mass shootings in any way, shape, or form, there was a DoJ study. Concluded that the ban can not be credited.

The band's impact on gun violence was likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.
