Video: Biden Tells “Brave Right-wing Americans” Second Amendment Has Limits
During a speech on gun control in Pennsylvania Tuesday, Joe Biden once again declared that the Second Amendment is “not unlimited” and told “brave right wing Americans” that if they engaged in a fight against their government they would need more than a gun.
Biden told the crowd “I have two shotguns at home. I am not opposed to guns and I support the Second Amendment,” adding the caveat “But the Second Amendment, as one of the most conservative justices in history, Justice Scalia once wrote, ‘like most rights, the rights granted by the Second Amendment not unlimited.’”
“Right now, you cannot go out and buy an automatic weapon. You cannot go out and buy a cannon,” Biden further asserted.
He continued, “for those brave right-wing Americans who say it is all about keeping America as independent and safe, if you want to fight against a country, you need an F-15 and you need something a little more than a gun.”
“I am not joking,” Biden stated, adding “Think about this. Think about the rationale that is used to provide this and who are they shooting at? Are they shooting at these guys behind me?”
Biden has made these exact comments several times before:
Really? “Certain people from the very beginning weren’t allowed to purchase guns.”
That’s just plainly false.
It isn’t the first time Biden has made this claim. When he was running against Trump, Biden outlined his gun control manifesto, and further claimed “From the very beginning you weren’t allowed to have certain weapons,” adding “You weren’t allowed to own a cannon during the Revolutionary War as an individual.”
Biden’s claim has been fact checked and found to be completely false.
The Washington Post wrote that “Some readers might think this is a relatively inconsequential flub. But we disagree,” adding “Every U.S. president has a responsibility to get American history correct, especially when he’s using a supposed history lesson in service of a political objective.”
“The president’s push for more gun restrictions is an important part of his political platform, so he undercuts his cause when he cites faux facts,” the Post added.
The latest comments come days after Biden described those who disagree with him and support Donald Trump as “semi-fascist” extremists.
