When discussing his plan to strip Americans if their second amendment right, Joe Biden claimed that civilians could never successfully wage a rebellion against the government unless the possessed fighter jets and nuclear weapons.
“If you wanted or if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”
Biden must have forgotten about the Vietnam War that occurred during his life time. In Vietnam guerrilla troops did exactly what Joe Biden now claims would be impossible. They fought off immensely more technologically advanced governments using assault rifles and tactical strategy.
Biden also said “The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”
This is a blatant untruth. The early U.S. government did not often become involved in matters relating to the second amendment, they did however allow fir civilians to own cannons.
James Madison as President of the United States wrote a letter of marque and reprisal allowing a civilian to own cannons, mount them on his scooner, and use them if necessary.
Either Joe Biden knew this, but was lying, or didn’t care to look into it before speaking on its behalf.
