We’ve reported previously at America’s 1st Freedom on some of the inane things that President Joe Biden (D) and others have said about firearms and your Second Amendment rights, but it’s also helpful to see what elected officials who support our freedom think about these statements, so the NRA put together this video.
“If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun,” once said Biden. “Have the shells of a 12-gauge shotgun and I promise you, as I told my wife, we live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded. I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house, I promise you, whoever is coming in is not gonna.’” In this video, you’ll see various current and former officials reacting to this and other comments.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) look incredulous. Reps. Mark Robinson (R-N.C.) and Burgess Owens (R-Utah), both of whom have previously sat down with America’s 1st Freedom, could barely hold back laughter at Biden’s outrageous ignorance.
“You don’t need an AR-15, it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and, in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself,” continued Biden.
“Where do you start?” asked Rep. Jordan after the clip.
“You know, Americans ought to have the right to defend themselves precisely the way that the Constitution and our founders understood it,” said Pompeo. “Somehow, the idea that President Biden gets to decide precisely which firearms we ought to have and precisely how we ought to protect our home and our family is absolutely ludicrous.”
“They really believe they know everything about everything and they know nothing about guns,” says Rep. Owens.
