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.
