On Memorial Day, Joe Biden made some very ominous statements, which were cloaked in his customary mistruths and utter gibberish.  These statements should send chills down the spines of supporter of the Second Amendment.  Once you fed the statements into a Joe Biden gibberish and lies decoder they translated into the message “we’re going to ban all guns including hand guns.”

From this quote you can see that Biden will be targeting the Democrat’s usual bugaboo ‘assault weapons.’

I know that it makes no sense to be able to purchase something that can fire up to 300 rounds.  I know it makes — and I know what happened when we had rational action before, back in — when the crime bill was — the law that got passed.  It did significantly cut down mass murders. 

And so there’s only one reason for something that can fire, you know, 100 shots.

The fraudulent claim about effects of the unconstitutional assault weapons ban are debunked here.

This next statement exploded across social media and conservative news websites because it is both ominous and entirely devoid of reality.

I mean — and I’ll just conclude with this: Look, when I first started doing hearings on the issue of what rational gun laws should be, it was during a period when I was a senator and the death rate was going up.  Not that many more people were being shot, but the death rate was up.  And when I think of — I’m not sure, I think it was (inaudible) hospital in New York — whatever the largest trauma hospital is. 

And I sat with a trauma doctor, and I asked him — I said, “What’s the difference?  Why are so many people…” — and not that many more people were being shot.  This is now 20 years ago, or 25 years.  I said, “Why are they dying?”  And they showed me x-rays.  He said, “A .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out, may be able to get it, and save the life.  A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”

Joe Biden proved that he knows absolutely nothing about the Second Amendment and the rest of the Constitution when he made the following statement:

So the idea of these high-caliber weapons is of — there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of thinking about self-protection, hunting.  I mean, I just — and remember, the Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute.  You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed.  You couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weapons. 

And those who — not many are saying it anymore, but there was a while there where people were saying that, you know, the Tree of Liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, and what we have to do is you have to be able to take on the government when they’re wrong.  Well, to do that, you need an F-15, you know?  Or you need an Abrams tank.

Joe Biden has repeated the same mistruth about the First Amendment preventing Americans in early America from owning cannons often.  Each time he uttered it he has been fact checked.

In the second paragraph of that last quote, Joe Biden shows utter contempt for the founding principles of the United States.  He spits on the graves of every founding father of the United States.  Only a petulant tyrant would threaten American citizens with tanks and fighter aircraft for simply standing up for their rights.
