On Monday, President Joe Biden gave a speech to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. However, rather than using that time to speak about the great things MLK did, he decided to reiterate his call to “ban the number of bullets that go in a magazine.”
After addressing his support for police reform, he moved on to gun control, “I’ll say what I said then — I’ll say it over and over again — I am going to get assault weapons banned.” Biden vowed. “I did it once, I’m going to do it again.”
There is “no social redeeming value” to these weapons, he continued. “Deer aren’t wearing kevlar vests out there. What the hell you need an assault — no, I’m serious. And ban the number of bullets that can go into a magazine. There’s no — no need for any of that.”
Ah, again with the deer in kevlar argument.
“I love my right-wing friends who talk about ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots,’” he continued, referring to the famous quote by Thomas Jefferson that states, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
“If you need to worry about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s,” Biden added. “You don’t need an AR-15. I’m serious. Think about it. Think about the rationale for this. It’s about money. Money, money, money.”
Funny, I’ve never been motivated by money to defend my right to buy, sell, and own firearms. I have, however, been motivated by my Second Amendment right to do so.
Just the fact that our government is being infiltrated with the very tyrants that our Constitution exists to protect us from is reason enough for us to continue the fight. Because without the Second Amendment, there are no other amendments. That was the only one created with the very purpose of protecting all the others.
