President Biden talked gun control in his recent speech, slamming high-capacity magazines.

“We need a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” Biden said. “And don’t tell me it can’t be done.”

But it was what Biden said about those who oppose a ban on large magazines and why they need so many that had some questioning.

“What’d ya think? Deer are wearing Kevlar vests?” Biden joked.
