President Biden made bizarre, divisive comments directed at supporters of the Second Amendment who believe their right to bear arms is a means to combat a tyrannical government, suggesting they’d need an F-15, not just a gun, to fight for America’s freedom.
Biden’s comments came during a speech promoting a “Safer America” agenda, where he voiced support for law enforcement and elevated his administration’s efforts to deter out-of-control crime across the nation.
But the man Democrats sold as a uniter quickly pivoted to political attacks against Republicans who support the Second Amendment, including insults towards those individuals who believe the right is necessary for self-defense – against enemies both foreign and domestic.
“For those brave, right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping America independent and safe,” Biden sneered. “If you want to fight against a country, you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun.”
It’s a bizarre comment considering how often Democrats describe regular, semi-automatic rifles as “weapons of war.”
He further tried to provoke gun owners by saying their “rationale” is used to justify the killing of law enforcement.
“And who are they shooting at? They’re shooting at these guys behind me,” he claimed without evidence.

Biden Mocks ‘Brave’ Gun Owners: You Need an F-15 to Fight the Government
Aside from indicating the federal government would squash ‘brave’ gun owners fighting back against a tyrannical government, the exact intent of the Second Amendment, Biden’s suggestion that they would need an F-15 wasn’t his only ridiculous comment during the speech.
The President returned to an old standby joke in which he mocks gun owners as being feeble and unable to hunt deer because they must be wearing “Kevlar vests.”
Most AR-15s are chambered in 5.56 NATO/.223 – a round so small that its illegal in 10 states to use in deer hunting; thus perfectly exemplifying the trouble with ignoramuses making laws about things they don’t understand.

Imagine being so constitutionally illiterate that you believe the Second Amendment, written on the heels of a freshly fought American revolution, was designed to address deer hunting.
The false commentary meant to be divisive didn’t stop there.
Biden went on to claim political opponents on the “other team” are “talking about political violence and how it’s necessary.”

Funny, I don’t recall him denouncing violence during the race riots of 2020 or when left-wing activists were trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices.
Biden couldn’t keep the Constitution and Declaration of Independence straight.

He claimed that “the bullet out of an AR-15 travels 5 times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun” which is, in a word, false.

Biden Threatens Gun Owners
It’s clear now more than ever that President Biden is little more than a frail, confused, bitter old man who is simply saying whatever his liberal college graduate interns are telling him to say.
None of it has any basis in reality, because those people writing his speeches have no real-world experience on the matter of guns.
But more than that, his speeches are intentionally meant to divide and, in doing so, are trying to goad extremists into turning to violence. That’s what they want. Violence in America, they believe, improves their chances politically.
How else to explain a threat that the federal government could take out gun owners with an F-15?

President Biden’s F-15 threat was similar to remarks made by another ignorant anti-gun loon, Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who suggested a “war” with gun owners would be short because the government “has nukes.”
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Radio host Buck Sexton hammered Biden for the F-15 comments, saying: “This is a stupid comment that shows the constitutional and historical illiteracy of the dumbest president in living memory.”
Nothing of what Sexton said is inaccurate.
The Federalist senior legal correspondent Margot Cleveland tweeted, “So, ‘Safer America’ means, … checks notes: A government threatening its citizens with F-15s.”

Can you even imagine the outcry by the media today if Trump suggested he could use F-15s against his political opponents?
