“Joe Biden openly admitted his plan to violate our Second Amendment rights,” points out a new video from President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, released on Oct 12.
That reminder may be necessary. As the 2020 election draws ever closer, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have almost entirely stopped talking about their plans to strip away everyday citizens’ rights to protect themselves and their families. This sudden silence on the topic is no doubt, in part, thanks to the inescapable reality that there are 5-million-plus new gun owners just this year, many of whom are women and minorities.
But they were not so quiet earlier in the campaign, as noted in the new ad, titled “If you're scared that a Biden administration will come for your guns: BINGO, you're right!” After pointing out the violent scenes that have taken place in 2020, the ad says, “Biden and Harris would enact unconstitutional gun-control measures, making it harder than ever to defend yourself. Your family—and rights—won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” The ad then highlights Biden’s “Bingo” answer to an interview question of whether a Biden administration would mean “they are going to come for my guns.”
Of course, Biden hasn’t been totally silent on the topic of guns lately. He once again dangerously suggested in his Oct. 15 “town hall” appearance that “you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. De-escalate. So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.” America’s 1st Freedom pointed out how bad this advice was when Biden first said it last June as a way for police to deal with “an unarmed person coming at ‘em with a knife or something.” Biden’s latest remark has been roundly condemned in interviews with law-enforcement officers and others who actually understand the dynamics of violent encounters.
Biden, of course, has a long history of giving bad firearms advice, like suggesting his wife should fire a shotgun twice in the air on her porch if she were concerned for her safety.
Whether he’s trying to play up his anti-gun leanings or to keep them quiet, it’s obvious that Biden, who is part of the most anti-gun ticket in American history, doesn’t understand or support the right to keep and bear arms. That is a major factor in why the NRA Political Victory Fund endorsed Donald Trump. As this latest Trump ad reminds us, Biden fully intends to strip away Second Amendment rights he hasn’t even taken the time to understand, regardless of how much less safe that might make law-abiding citizens.
