Joe Biden has uttered many an idiotic sentence in his long and winding political career – some are merely incomprehensible, others staggering in their convoluted syntax and grammar. However, he shines the light on his ignorance best when he speaks about guns. This week during a CNN town hall, the president spoke about a 9mm pistol while referring to large-capacity magazines. “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots … whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.”
Article by Leesa K. Donner from Liberty Nation.
Having read this statement and having shot a 9mm, it seemed like an opportune moment to do a little fact-checking. Texting a friend, I queried, “Hey, I’ve shot a 9mm before and don’t ever remember one that had a mag of 20, let alone 30, 40, or 50? It was 15 rounds max. Am I crazy?” His answer: “Most 9mm magazines hold between 8 and 15 rounds. I think it is possible to get 20-round mags, but I have no idea why anyone would want one for a pistol.”
Another gun enthusiast, who is (full disclosure here) my most frequent range buddy, proffered this: “While it’s entirely possible to put almost any size magazine into a clip, it would be an oddity. Basically, it is not something that anyone does because a higher capacity mag would stick out, making the handgun unwieldy.” Going down the list of my favorite range men, it seemed the time was right to consult my pal from Arkansas. People from Arkansas tend to know a whole lot about guns. This guy felt the query did not even dignify a straight answer. “What, you don’t have the new 120-round double-drum mag for the 9 mm pistol? How about the 40-shot revolver?”
Okay, so my little focus group – made up of a girl, a former Special Ops badass, a licensed NRA instructor, and the gun dude from Arkansas agreed: A 9mm with anything more than 15 rounds was sort of like a bald Medusa.
All this coughed up memories of other Biden gun heresies.
In 2013 Shotgun Joe advised his wife on how to protect herself by firing a shotgun into the air. “I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,’” he said in all seriousness. This comment is, quite frankly, breathtaking to anyone who has ever handled a firearm. No, no actually I take that back. It’s mouth-dropping for those who have never touched a gun, too. Let’s just say it would not be advisable to stand on your front porch and fire a shotgun skyward unless you want to have a lot of police stopping by for more than just coffee.
Back in 2019, when he was still sort of making sense, Biden said this while stumping for votes in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA? We protect geese more than we protect, no joke you can only have 3 shotgun shells when you go shooting for geese, we protect geese more than our kids.” Writing for Bearing Arms, Tom Knighton quipped, “Um, Joe? We have laws against killing children at all. We actually allow people to kill geese. We don’t allow them to kill children. I’d say kids are getting more protection there. I’m fairly sure the geese agree.” As Liberty Nation’s James Fite put it:
“if you still can’t see the not-so-subtle difference here, just call the FBI and inform them that you’re looking to go hunt some human children and ask how many shells you can have loaded in your shotgun. I assure you they will clear up any remaining ambiguity as to whether federal law allows the shooting of another person for sport or food – child or otherwise.”
The Bible, which Mr. Biden claims to follow, offers a few choice words for our commander in chief about prattling on about subjects in which one knows nothing. Proverbs 17:28 (NLT) reads, “Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.” Or he could merely take Mark Twain’s words to heart:
“It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”

American Patriots Uniting to Fight Tyranny from, Well, Everywhere
We’re building a new conservative news network. Based on responses from fellow patriots, we’re heading in the right direction.
It may be hard to believe based on what we’re seeing around the nation today, but there are many reasons to be hopeful. First and foremost, the false narrative that most of America hates traditional values or the foundations of our nation are finally being proven false. Despite the best efforts of globalists and Neo-Marxists, patriotic Americans are starting to unify in droves. Meanwhile, Joe Biden can barely muster a half-filled auditorium to deliver his message to the scant few watching CNN and the paid shills in the “crowd.”
The “silent majority” that drove Donald Trump to victory in 2016 and 2020 (yes, he won by a landslide but was robbed along with the American people) is finally starting to realize we cannot stay silent any longer. We used to win with our votes, but those are being stolen. We used to win with truth, but the radical left and their agents in mainstream media, Big Tech, and academia are building a post-truth society to drown out reality. Today, we are waking up to the realization that only through direct action and fearlessly spreading the truth can we overcome the nefarious forces working against us.
We are proud to be working our way up to the tip of the conservative media spear. Our network is growing. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
