In his first speech before a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, President Joe Biden urged the legislature to re-issue a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines while arguing that it “worked before.”

Yet, the most widely-sourced data shows that it did not, in fact, work before.

Biden declared gun violence “an epidemic in America” before saying, “In the 1990s, we passed universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that hold 100 rounds that can be fired in seconds.”
