Joe Biden Is No Moderate

As we search for sanity amidst all the clamor and craziness of this particular political season, the mainstream media is handing us the false narrative, as if it is a life preserver from these tumultuous times, that Joe Biden is a moderate.

Joe Biden is no moderate. 

The mainstream media wants us to believe this so a majority of voters will grab onto him in this storm in the hope a Biden presidency would float us back to “normalcy.” They want us to believe this despite the fact that Biden is either at the helm of the chaos now moving against our values and freedom, or he is caught up within its woke winds, hoping it will blow him into the White House. Likely, it is both. But, whatever the case, a Biden presidency would try to sink our Second Amendment rights.

Rather than referring to the many mad and ignorant things Biden has said about guns when he finds himself in front of a microphone (for a taste of these, see “Joe Biden Wants Your Guns”), let’s just consider what he has spelled out for the Second Amendment on his campaign website.

Here are a few highlights:

Biden says he wants to bankrupt America’s gun makers. He says that in 2005 he voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), and that now he wants to repeal it. This law doesn’t protect “these manufacturers from being held civilly liable for their products,” as Biden claims. Actually, its plain words do not even remotely imply it does this. What it does is prevent firearms makers and dealers from being held liable for criminal missuse of their products. 

Biden says he wants to ban popular semi-automatic rifles, a gun design that has been around since the late 1800s. He also wants to “buy” them back, which is a dishonest way of saying he wants to confiscate them from the millions of Americans who own them.

Biden says he wants to create gun registries; though he says he wants to ban and confiscate semi-automatic rifles (and perhaps shotguns and more), he also says he wants to “pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.” This would require people to apply for permits for America’s rifle and register them.

Biden says that “to reduce the stockpiling of firearms,” he “supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.”

Biden says he would “enact [so-called] universal background check legislation.” 

Biden says he would use the Social Security Administration to deny older Americans their Second Amendment rights.

Biden says he would “[e]nd the online sale of firearms and ammunitions.” 

Biden says he would give “states incentives to set up gun licensing programs.” 

Biden says he would “[p]ut America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns.”

Biden says he would “pass legislation requiring firearm owners to store weapons safely in their homes.” So, we suppose, this would empower government officials to inspect the homes of gun owners and to punish those who don’t comply.

Biden says he would “[p]rohibit the use of federal funds to arm or train educators to discharge firearms.” So much for school-safety officers.

There is much more in Biden’s radical agenda. Clearly, a vote for Biden is a vote against American freedom.
