I have heard many people say over the recent weeks and months that if you take the First Amendment away then you can easily take away the Second. It’s that simple.
All Joe Biden wants to do is strip away the rights of conservatives and Trump supporters alike as some sort of punitive measure because they backed a horse that he doesn’t like.
It’s sickening and the type of things that would happen in communist countries.
On the campaign trail, in a tense interaction that seems like it took place a decade ago, but was actually from March, candidate Joe Biden had a confrontation with an autoworker who said Biden was going to “end” the Second Amendment. In a series of viral videos, Biden could be seen calling the man a “horses a–” and “full of s—.”
Joe Biden attacks Second Amendment
“Don’t tell me that, pal, or I’m going to go outside with you, man,” Biden said. Wow, what a tough guy. Well, it turns out he wasn’t quite “full of s—.”
Joe Biden has promised a suite of gun control measures in his campaign platform, including bans on so-called “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines. Perhaps more dangerously, he also proposed a repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which protected gun companies from lawsuits for legal sales of their weapons.
Beyond that, in the midst of a crazy week — one in which Democrats assumed control of the Senate and that was the least of everyone’s concerns — Biden found time to tweet that he would work “to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”
“Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others,” Biden said. “I pledge to continue to work with you — and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country — to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”
Perhaps more disturbing is the fact that Biden has been stacking his administration with gun-grabbers.
Merrick Garland, the federal judge and former Supreme Court nominee Joe Biden nominated for attorney general, wasn’t necessarily known for his sympathy toward the Second Amendment.
“Garland’s anti-Second Amendment position is clear from his record. Garland does not believe the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms,” the NRA-ILA said in a statement.
