Another day, another gaffe from Joe Biden. Speaking in Hudson, New Hampshire, this week, the presidential contender bemoaned the absence of “a rational policy” that makes it illegal to have “20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.” Presumably he meant “rounds,” not “clips.”
“Those who say ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots’ — a great line,” he added. “Well, guess what: fact is, if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you if you’re worried about the government knocking down your door.”
Apparently Biden has never heard of the American Revolution, in which ragtag patriots prevailed against the greatest military force in the world.
“There is a 2nd Amendment, and you do have a right to bear arms but not an unlimited right,” he added. “The Constitution does not say anybody can own a weapon; it says only certain people can own weapons.” That’s actually not what it says. The 2nd Amendment says totalitarians like Biden don’t get to decide who can.
