Stuck On Stupid

What I like most about the gun control movement is how ignorant (not to say dishonest) its proponents are.  Cue Joe The Moron:

While attending a private campaign event in Seattle, the former vice president reportedly called for a ban on 9mm pistols.

While speaking to attendees of the latter event, Biden claimed that he supports the Second Amendment. The 77-year-old then went on to ask “Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds?”

In targeting 9mm pistols, Biden has called for a ban on one of the most popular firearms in America.

In its annual report on the U.S. firearms industry, Shooting Industry reported that 9mm caliber pistols are the most commonly produced pistol and have been for many years. In 2017 alone, there were more than 1.7 million 9mm pistols produced in the U.S. Cumulatively there are tens of millions of 9mm pistols in the hands of law-abiding Americans.

The 9mm pistol is the choice of the nation’s leading civilian law enforcement agency, the FBI. Moreover, 9mm pistols are used by countless other federal, state, and local civilian law enforcement agencies. Biden alluded to the 9mm handgun’s military applications, but these agencies are not tasked with waging war on the public, but rather defending the public. This defensive application is the same reason that millions of Americans have chosen a 9mm pistol as their self-defense firearm.

So now Clueless Joe wants to ban 9mm pistols, because they are “weapons of war and have no application in civilian life”.

As Longtime Readers know, I have long held the opinion that the 9mm Europellet is a marginal self-defense cartridge, certainly in its full metal jacket variant, less so with a proper expanding bullet — although even that’s a stretch.

But if Gummint (in Biden form) wants to ban the guns which shoot them, allow me to offer this advice (with my favorite pictured):

…or of course my perennial favorite (once again with my recommendation):

Let’s not forget the only 9mm pistol I own (I mean used to own, before that terrible Canoeing Accident On The Brazos):

(sadly, most are out of stock at the link — I wonder why?)

…and there’s always this option, for my ex-military friends (with all the rest):

And of course, because this is Joe Biden, he never thought (or didn’t know) that a jillion cops (along with a few misguided individuals) use this Austro-POS 9mm pistol too:

(no link because Glock, ugh)

Now I know the question on the lips of all my Readers will be:  “Kim, why did you feature the Kahr 9mm pistols first?”

Simple answer:  I like Kahr pistols.  I think their action is superior to Glock’s, and their guns sit better in my hand too.  Your opinion may vary, as may your choice in 9mm pistols, and that’s perfectly okay.

But as I said earlier:

I think y’all know what to do.  And if you already own one (or two, or three, or four…) then you know what to do next:

…or even better:

Have at it.  Make Baby Vulcan smile.

  1. Just bought another 1000rds of 9mm on Sat at Rural King. It’s like buying a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk. A staple.

    It really doesn’t matter what any politician says or does because none of it has anything to do with me no matter how much they gnash and wail.

    When I hear the Joe Bidens announce that they are going to prevent criminals from harming others with guns or otherwise they will get my attention but until such time their cacophony blends into so much infant whining and wailing. I will own whatever I want and no one can do anything about it.

    FWIW, the people that down talk 9mm pistols simply do not have the correct training for if they did they wouldn’t make such claims. My daily user is a circa 1999 Beretta 92FS INOX.

  2. On the weekend I rolled thru the channels to CSPAN. It was none other than Joe B at a town hall meeting. In the audience a cell phone rang. Joe called out to the gentleman to “answer his watch”.

    Anyone who has endured the years and tears of living hell watching loved ones in the process of dissovling by Alzheimers disease knows full well what is going on. Joe is on the mental Bataan death march. His mind is slowly coming apart. If the bitch he is married to had any love for him, had respect for what will be his legacy, she would take him off the campaign trail today. What is most frightening for the 2020 election is that this guy should win…remember that the idiot American Public elected a Kenyan communist TWICE. When comes time to invoke the 25th, we will end up with Hillary or Kamala or Liz taking the throne. Cause for sure that will be the Faustian deal consumated at the convention. God help us…

  3. “Cumulatively there are tens of millions of 9mm pistols in the hands of law-abiding Americans.”

    You’d better think real hard about that one Joe.

    And that’s just one caliber…

    And what Gun Professor said. Maybe Jill is getting a little payback for years of humiliation by Gropey Joe.

  4. Q: How can you double the effectiveness of your ammunition?
    A: Shoot the bastard twice.

    RE: 9MM ammunition, for various values of “9MM ammunition,” the right stuff approaches the effectiveness of 45ACP ammunition closely enough to be suitable for social work. As an Identified Hardass, I fully support the application of a sufficient quantity of ammunition, regardless of caliber, to achieve the desired result. Under those circumstances, application of 2-4 rounds of (the right) 9MM reportedly seems to work about as well as 1-2 rounds of 45ACP. (Pro Tip: Buy your 22LR, 25ACP, .32 and 380 in very large quantities, you’re gonna need it….).

    That said, there’s nothing 45ACP can do at 10 yards that (the right) 7.62X51 can’t do at 500 meters, and the 10 yard thing creates the possibility of spilling my drink, while the other can be conducted at a somewhat more leisurely pace.

    Just sayin’.

  5. Well now, everybody knows that the 9mm us what the military US and other use and that means it’s weapons grade ammo which means you could bring down small to medium size aircraft with it. Remember it used to be 45 and two times 45 is 90 and that is where 9mm comes from. You can make fun of the dumb shit lefties all day long and they don’t have any idea what they are talking about and furthermore they don’t want to know because they have strong emotions and don’t need or want facts. They don’t know Jack and that’s a Fact Jack !

  6. I note that our guest, the Saudi Lt., used an M9 pistol with an extended mag (?32rd?) to extend his gratitude to his hosts. Anyone know if that M9 was marked “U.S.Property”?
    And, for the benefit of Sloe-Joe and his idiot friends, the NSSF just released data from both manufacturers/importers and the ATF, on the numbers of firearms purchased in 2018, and accumulatively (1986-2018).
    Modern Sporting Rifles possessed by Americans: 17,740,000! (1.5MM in 2018 alone – 54% of all rifles produced) … or …
    estimated total number of firearms in civilian possession from 1986‐2018 is 422.9 million!
    8.1B rounds of ammunition were produced for the USA civilian market in 2018.
