Joe Biden Takes Aim At Second Amendment Hours Before Election

Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden solidified his stance on the Second Amendment with a tweet vowing “common-sense reforms.”

Biden vowed that should he capture the White House, he would ban “assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”

“It’s long past time we take action to end the scourge of gun violence in America,” he said in a Sunday afternoon tweet.

Joe Biden Tweet on Gun Control Gives Conservatives Fresh Second Amendment Ammo

Biden’s tweet didn’t sit well with conservatives who saw the message as a clear agenda against the Second Amendment.

“A last-minute reminder that Biden is coming for your guns,” conservative comedian Tim Young replied.

Cam Edwards, editor of Bearing Arms, explained that Biden’s proposals were an “absurdly bad idea” that “would criminalize the possession of commonly owned arms while doing nothing to stop actual violent crime.”

Edwards also took a jab at the Democrat candidate’s proposals to curb officer-involved shootings by training police to shoot dangerous suspects in the leg.

Trump Voters Shouldn’t Need a Reminder

Supporters of the Second Amendment should need no reminder of how extreme a Biden-Harris administration will be in curbing their rights.

During a town hall hosted by CNN last April, then-candidate for President Harris said she would take executive action if certain gun control measures were not enacted by Congress within the first 100 days of her administration.

“Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws,” she said.

“And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.”

Biden, meanwhile, has vowed that Beto O’Rourke, a man who has vowed to forcibly confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens, will have a ‘lead’ role in his efforts to reform gun control laws in America.

At a rally in March, Biden grabbed the mic from O’Rourke and announced, “this is not the last you’re seeing of this guy.”

“You’re gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you’re gonna be the one who leads this effort,” Biden said, arm around Beto.

“I’m counting on you, I’m counting on you, we need you badly.”

During a Democrat debate in September, O’Rourke announced that “hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” 

He would later threaten gun owners with forcible confiscation.

“If someone does not turn an AR-15 or an AK-47, one of these weapons of war, or brings it out in public and brandishes it, in an attempt to intimidate … then that weapon will be taken from them,” Beto threatened.

“If they persist, there will be other consequences from law enforcement.”

Biden himself made the wildly inaccurate claim that 150 million Americans have died due to gun violence since 2007 and used that to tell gun manufacturers that “I’m coming for you.”

At another town hall event, Biden called for banning semi-automatic firearms and “clips that have multiple bullets in them.”

Trump voters know the history here. If you’re a left-leaning proponent of the right to bear arms, however, you might want to rethink who you’re casting a vote for on Election Day.

  • As of this date and time I have just had a reality check ... never did I imagine that there are so many uninformed voters in this country ... thinking the socialistic left has any merit!!!

  • That idiot Fredo will most likely won’t be around too long,there are hard core 2nd amendment protectors and one of them won’t take no shit from some idiot from Texas.

  • If you do not already own a handgun or two you will have a terrible time finding one to purchase. All sporting goods stores are sold out of every caliber handgun. Most pawn shops have limited if any handguns. If you are fortunate enough to get a handgun it is virtually impossible to find ammunition. Guns and ammo have been purchased at rates never before seen. Concealed carry permits are through the roof nationwide. Most of the firearms appear to be purchased by conservatives, but the left isn't just sitting around waiting. If Trump wins the the lunatic fringe left Antifa, the Burn, Loot, Murder bunch are just looking for an excuse to start their violence. The good side is that the right is armed to the teeth....and except in Democrat controlled cities are not going to stand for Burn, Loot, and Murder, and the Antifa to walk all over them. It could get ugly...

  • A civil war that you Trumpers have vowed to start of your Orange Savior is re-elected.

    Try it. We're ready for you wingnuts.

  • Yep he will do it because its what China wants so they can take over our country in few years. Biden sold us out already and is beholding to China.

  • A vote for Harris-Biden ticket is a vote against yourself, your kids future and your grandkids. Never give up your liberty teeth (the 2nd amendment) for they protect all other enshrined rights.

    MAGA!

  • There will be a raid on guns if Sleepy Joe is selected. Good thing that is NOT going to happen. I would buy a gun if he was.

  • Once guns are taken away from the populace true despotism can then begin. Just look at the history....Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, and so on. We will have a civil war before Biden or Kamala is added to that list.
