As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Biden Mocks the Basis of Second Amendment

This guy is the vice president, the former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and supposedly a leading Democratic expert on gun issues. And yet, he doesn’t understand the Second Amendment.

From an event earlier today:

Let’s allow Alexander Hamilton enlighten him:

If circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens.

The Second Amendment is not about hunting. It’s about liberty. Many people in free societies have believed themselves entirely safe from their own government. Until they were not.

  1. Biden may just think the second amendment is the follow-up to your first (illegal) shotgun blast into the air.

    Based on some of the comments coming out of his head, at least he seems to be familiar with the term “hollow point”.

  2. Wait, someone who treats citizens like they would rather have them subjects to their dictatorial whims doesn’t like the prospect of the citizenry being able to defend themselves against their enemies, both foreign and domestic – say it ain’t so, Joe…

  3. Anybody who believes this fool is a complete idiot.
    Biden does not have the intelligence to hold his position.
    The incessant series of lies coming from this administration is amazing.
    Joe is right in one sense,…we aren’t going to just come and take your guns,…not until we force all of you to register them.

  4. Right…our federal government would never swoop in on us and do what Clinton and Reno did to the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. I despise the voters who re-elected these damn Marxists back in office. A pox on you all for allowing these criminal politicians to steal our liberty.

    Hey, Tennessee. Betcha I know how Senator Bob Corker is going to vote on Thursday’s gun grab legislation. Saw he is in attendance at the ‘Sequester Soul Show Live From The White House’. Probably his price for selling out our 2nd Amendment rights.

  5. A cable TV show, “Crime 360” (A&E) showcases the tools that local police have to find criminals and their special effects equipment that helps them reconstruct what really happened. One particular episode featured the city of Buffalo, NY and the special equipment they own that can “hear” the sounds of gunshots anywhere within the city limits.

    Our BorderPatrol (HomelandSecurity) has portable equipment that can “see” firearms inside someone’s home from the street.
    PETA has indicated that they will be purchasing drones to track hunters in the fields.
    Cities have plans to fly drones over the people and their homes to spy on them, supposedly looking for crimes in progress.
    Homeland Security, Social Security Administration and other non-military bureacracies have purchased billions of hollow point bullets for reasons unknown.

    We are increasingly suspicious of our own government and it’s intentions. We’re not giving up our rights to own firearms.

  6. Keith, how can you not understand that Democrats care nothing about the Constitution? To them it is an outdated, meaningless document which must be thrown into the dustbin of history along with all of the traditions, principles and values upon which our country was founded.

    Their purpose is the absolute control of people. They cannot control people if people have a way to defend themselves against that control. It really is that simple and that reality is what people on our side should be shouting daily.

      You mean, thinking like this?

      “As someone who has taught constitutional law for almost 40 years, I am ashamed it took me so long to see how bizarre all this is. Imagine that after careful study a government official — say, the president or one of the party leaders in Congress — reaches a considered judgment that a particular course of action is best for the country. Suddenly, someone bursts into the room with new information: a group of white propertied men who have been dead for two centuries, knew nothing of our present situation, acted illegally under existing law and thought it was fine to own slaves might have disagreed with this course of action. Is it even remotely rational that the official should change his or her mind because of this divination?” – Louis Michael Seidman, Professor of Constitutional law, Georgetown University
