Joe Biden is shifting blame for the rise in crime across the country while also claiming it’s Republicans that are lying about who’s behind the push to defund America’s police departments. During his Town Hall on CNN Wednesday, Biden actually claimed crime is down, but then said gun violence and murder rates are up. He then focused on his reputation as a gun control senator during his time in congress while stating he’s looking to get rid of everything from 9mm pistols to rifles. “The idea that you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon whether it’s a 9mm, pistol or whether it’s a riffle is ridiculous,” said Biden. “I’m continuing to push to eliminate those things, but I’m not lucky enough to get that done in a near term.” He went on to say that he and other Democrats had never called for defunding the police while asserting that Republicans who point out the left’s support for the movement are liars. Biden went as far as to ask, “are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of people?”
