Joe Biden accidentally gives the perfect example of why The Second Amendment was put into the United States Constitution
“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. And so, it’s bizarre. We never said you could own any weapon at all from the beginning. You can’t own a machine gun. You can’t own a bazooka. You can’t own an M1 tank, no matter how much money you have. You can limit the kind of weapons that can be owned.”
“I think – and by the way, all the work I’ve done on this, including in [the Obama] administration – I now have over 58 percent of the NRA members acknowledging you can’t own an assault weapon. There’s no need for it. You can’t have, you can’t have a magazine that has more than 10 rounds in it.”
– Joe Biden
The 2nd Amendment is about protecting We The People from tyranny.
Soooo Joe, does what you just said mean that citizens should be able to have higher powered weapons? You know, like the founding fathers said ‘Keep and bear arms’. Notice they didn’t say muskets. That’s because they knew that arms would advance.
They were also pretty clear when they said “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”
