I don’t believe that President Biden always thinks before he speaks, but I have learned that what he says off the cuff is a preview of what he would like to do. Therefore, I am very concerned about some of his recent remarks.
On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported the following:
President Joe Biden said Tuesday while in Pennsylvania that “brave right wing Americans” who claim the Second Amendment is meant to fight back against a tyrannical government would be obliterated by the military.
Biden was speaking in Wilkes-Barre while promoting gun control and bolstering police forces across the nation. Biden pushed for a federal ban on so-called “assault weapons” and took aim at Republicans during his speech, invoking the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“As one of the most – one of the most conservative justices in history, Justice Scalia, once wrote like, quote, ‘like most rights, the rights granted by the Second Amendment are not unlimited’,” Biden said. “They’re not unlimited right now.”
“You can’t go out and buy an automatic weapon, you can’t go out and buy a cannon, and for those brave right wing Americans who say its all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun.”
The implication here is that the military could be used to fight against Americans. That is not only unconstitutional, it is scary.
The article concludes:
Biden has called on Congress to pass a ban on “assault weapons and high capacity magazines” shortly after a mass shooter killed 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. Biden tried to assure Americans that “this is not about taking away anyone’s guns” or “vilifying gun owners.”
“The Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute,” Biden had said.
Actually, all the President has done is vilify gun owners and threaten to take away their guns. We need to pay attention to this and make sure we elect people who will protect our rights.
