Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden spoke in Hudson, New Hampshire, this week and told attendees that it is “rational” to prohibit “50 clips in a weapon.” Ryan Saavedra quoted Biden maligning the absence of “a rational policy” that makes it illegal to have “20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.” Also in Hudson, Biden intimated that gun owners who cling to their AR-15s and AK-47s are no match for the government. He made reference to gun owners who quote Thomas Jefferson’s statement on the tension that exists between free men and the rulers who wish to subjugate them, a statement that includes Jefferson’s observation that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.” Biden then said, “Those who say ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots’ — a great line, well, guess what: The 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.” He also stressed his belief that the right to keep and bear arms is limited, saying, “There is a Second 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.”
Wow… Just think, crazy ol’ Joe is a former Senator and former Vice President of these United States, and he’s saying such spectacularly, factually incorrect statements like this. I’ve got the Constitution and the Bill of Rights right here in front of me, and NOWHERE does the Second Amendment specify who can, and who cannot own a weapon. As for the clips comment… C’mon.. We all know he means “rounds;” not clips. So, on that minor gaffe, we’ll give him a minor pass. But, he’s SO out-of-touch, and being 77, his age is showing. Joe should have just stayed retired. Now, he’s just making a fool of himself each time he gets on stage. Ya almost feel sorry for him.. It’s unlikely he’ll get the Dem nomination now, and even if he somehow pulls that off, he’d get destroyed and humiliated by Trump.
