Biden says Constitution doesn’t say anyone can own any weapon

31

These comments were made before the shooting in Midland today.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that the U.S. Constitution does not allow “anyone” to own a weapon and does not give citizens the right to buy “any kind of weapon” they want because every amendment has limitations.

The Constitution doesn’t ‘give’ us any rights, Joe. It enumerates our inherent rights.

Biden is saying we shouldn’t have guns to defend against a bad government because they can just nuke us with F-15s and Bazookas anyway.

“Every single solitary amendment has a limitation on it. Now, the limitation that exists on the Second Amendment is, nowhere does it say you can own any kind of weapon you want. Nowhere does it say anyone can own a weapon. And those who say, and maybe some do, that the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, meaning you’ve got to be able to have enough power to take on your government — well, you need an F-15, you need an M1 tank, you need flame throwers, you need bazookas. No, I’m serious, if that’s the rationale,” Biden said during a campaign town hall in Rock Hill, S.C. on Thursday.

No one is looking to buy M1 tanks, flame throwers, or bazookas, Joe.

“That has not been the rationale for the Second Amendment in most scholars’ view but here’s the deal: we’ve always been able to say certain people should not own a weapon. A person who in fact beats and abuses his wife and is convicted of it should not be able to get a weapon. A person who has engaged in violence should not be able to get a weapon. A terrorist should not be able to purchase a weapon. I could go on the list — that’s why universal background checks are absolutely required and they do not violate anyone’s Second Amendment right,” he added.

We have background checks. They just want a list of everyone who owns a gun so they can confiscate them.

Biden approves of blowing holes through your front door with a shotgun to scare the bad guys. They’ll go away, he says.

  1. I’m not sure if Sleazy Joe is a moron or he believes everyone else is a moron. In either case, Sleazy Joe is a very sad excuse for a man

  2. Damn! Now I have to go out and buy an M-1! Maybe an old T-62 with some mods instead. Can’t afford the ten million or so.

  3. Hey Joe, remember the NVA? Don’t think they had tanks or F-15s and yet they managed to fend us off (with the help of some lefty stooges like you).

        • With of the help of the lefty stooges setting the rules of engagement to setup the US military for ambushes by the indistinguishable enemy.
          Joe just doesn’t know when to shut up. Good. He and the rest of the commiecrats will defeat themselves.

  4. On the 2nd Amendment
    The 2nd Amendment is meant to be a Deterrent. If a Deterrent is successful, then aggression does not take place. As a Deterrent, it does not mean that aggression is inevitable… but is assured if the government moves to seize power away from the people and deny them their Unalienable Rights. The government must always know that the population is armed and will defend the Constitution. The government, whether Federal or State have no authority to write any firearm laws. The very idea that a government entity can write firearm laws is ridiculous, given that the purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to keep the government in check. The government would write laws in its own interest, to protect itself from the people, which of late, is exactly what is taking place, this absurdity defies simple logic. Personal Self-defense is a fundamental right and though not mentioned in the 2nd, it is implied because the people are given the right to defend the Constitution, which is self-defense. Ignorant people have allowed our government to make firearm laws, incarcerate, confiscate, and felonize people in the name of some sophomoric concept of safety. Only through a Constitutional Convention should any and all firearm laws be approved and disapproved.

  5. this is treason. ANY FEDERAL employee of VP status , who took an oath to protect and defend the CONSTITUTION, who wrongly, knowingly, mistate the 2a…………… the 2a ENSURES the federal govt NEVER make any law regarding arms………….shall not be infringed is too hard for LEFTIES to understand

    • Scott, Biden’s an idiot who says idiotic things, but it’s not treason. The Constitution defines treason, and spreading lies about the Constitution isn’t treason.

      “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Constitution of the Federal Government of the United States of America, Article Three Section Three.

  6. Oh yes it DOES:
    We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment.
    Find one government in all of history that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS.
    Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS.
    Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms.
    The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D.
    The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS.
    The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS’ GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it’s “rights” up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?! (Rome, Egypt, Israel,etc)
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Politician. But THEY would LOVE to shut YOU up, hence the FIRST Amendment.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it’s army’s/soldier’s “RIGHT” to “Keep and BEAR ARMS” because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It’s own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
    The Second Amendment was written for the People, like the other 9 Amendments in the Bill of Rights. This was confirmed by the SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller decision, where they stated that the “People” in the Second Amendment were the same “People” that are mentioned in the First and Fourth Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment clearly codifies the “right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, and certainly not “the Militia”.
    Why would “the Militia”, a type of army manned by citizen-soldiers as opposed to full-time “regulars”, need a constitutional amendment to guarantee they have the right “to keep and bear arms”?
    Is there any specific statement anywhere in the Constitution that the army Congress is empowered to raise has the “right to keep and bear arms”? Of course not. …………. That is assumed.

  7. “Every single solitary amendment has a limitation on it.”
    So the 13th & 19th have “limits”?!
    Slavery is only PARTLY banned?
    Women can only vote in SOME elections?

  8. Technically correct there “sleepy old coot”. But what it SPECIFICALLY says IS that my RIGHT TO BEAR arms “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”!!!!!!! THIS MEANS THAT 90% OF ALL THE GUN LAW ON THE BOOKS IS an infringement of MY RIGHTS!!!!

  9. Well Joe… The constitution doesn’t say anyone can own a weapon, but it doesn’t say anyone can’t either, this means that constitutionally we all have the right to own weapons if we’d like.

  10. Clearly, Low browed, knuckle dragging pervert Joe Biden has never read The Constitution & even if he did, that idiot did not have comprehension of it.

  11. The only folks afraid of the public having weapons are the politician that want the public disarmed so they can run roughshod over them!

  12. You really need to read the highly suppressed 1982 Senate report on the 2nd Amendment. I have a paper copy.

    https://guncite.com/journals/senrpt/senrpt.html

    “The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner.”

    19th century cases
    16. * Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878).

    “If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the (p.17)penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”

    17. * Jennings v. State, 5 Tex. Crim. App. 298, at 300-01 (1878).

    “We believe that portion of the act which provides that, in case of conviction, the defendant shall forfeit to the county the weapon or weapons so found on or about his person is not within the scope of legislative authority. * * * One of his most sacred rights is that of having arms for his own defence and that of the State. This right is one of the surest safeguards of liberty and self-preservation.”

    18. * Andrews v. State, 50 Tenn. 165, 8 Am. Rep. 8, at 17 (1871).

    “The passage from Story (Joseph Story: Comments on the Constitution) shows clearly that this right was intended, as we have maintained in this opinion, and was guaranteed to and to be exercised and enjoyed by the citizen as such, and not by him as a soldier, or in defense solely of his political rights.”

    19. * Nunn v. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846).

    “‘The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State.”

    And the SCOTUS case that led to the Civil War..

    Are Negros citizens…Dred Scott
    “It would give to persons of the negro race, who are recognized as citizens in any one state of the Union, the right to enter every other state, whenever they pleased…. and it would give them full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might meet; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to KEEP AND CARRY ARMS wherever they went.”

  13. Old Joe’s got it wrong again…the Bill of Rights does indeed put limits on some things, like the government and you, Joe! Learn to respect the first 10 amendments!

  14. law school plagiarist Biden, must have missed the class about the centrality of the duty and right to own a weapon during 1776…like Osama, his boss, he missed all the importnat classes, but got adegree anyway…these pair of documented fruadster give the Constitution a new meaning.

    • Law school plagiarist Biden, must have missed the class about the centrality of the duty and right to own a weapon during 1776…like Osama, his boss, he missed all the important classes, but got a degree anyway…this pair of documented fraudsters give the Constitution a new meaning.

  15. Biden is right – the 2nd Amendment doesn’t say what gun a citizen can own, but it does say the government can’t infringe on your God-given right to own one.

  16. And former VP’s who can’t remember the name of the president they served under, & have no idea what state they’re in….shouldn’t be allowed to buy a gun.

  17. This man is the dumbest man in politics. My wife worked for him when he first graduated law school and he hasn’t changed since. He may be a nice guy but not presidential material.

  18. Yes, we need universal background checks. But, heaven forbid we require a voter to actually supply an ID to prove who they are and the story changes.
