In a speech on Wednesday, decrepit placeholder President Joe Biden warned American citizens who support the 2nd Amendment that “If… you think you need weapons to take on the government, you need F-15’s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”
“The second amendment from the day it was passed limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own,” Biden falsely claimed, adding, “You couldn’t buy a cannon.”
“Those who say the blood of liberty, the, uh, blood of patriots, you know, and all this stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government,” he continued incoherently. “Well, the tree of liberty is not watered with the blood of patriots. What’s happened is that there never been– if you wanna– think you need weapons to take on the government, you need F-15’s and maybe some nuclear weapons. The point is there’s always been the ability to limit– rationally limit the type of weapon that can be owned and who can own it.”
Of course, no one is “moving against the government.” The 2nd Amendment is not about insurrection, but self-defense against a tyrannical government. Biden not only doesn’t understand this, but he also literally threatened Americans that they don’t have the firepower to take on the government.
It’s precisely that kind of ominous statement that confirms the necessity for Americans to have the 2nd Amendment.
