(DCWatchdog.com) – On Memorial Day, the most solemn day of remembrance and commemoration on the calendar of the United States of America, President Joe Biden repeatedly attacked the Second Amendment to the Constitution — the amendment within the Bill of Rights that protects Americans’ gun rights from government restriction.
As Breitbart News recounts in “Joe Biden on Memorial Day: ‘The Constitution, the Second Amendment Was Never Absolute'”:
“President Joe Biden pushed for more gun control on Monday, even though it was Memorial Day, a national patriotic holiday.
“‘The Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute,’ Biden said to reporters…
“Biden falsely claimed again that Americans were unable to purchase a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed, despite being repeatedly fact-checked as false by even the Washington Post and Politifact.” [emphasis added]
Among his statements. Biden said:
- “You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed, and you couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weapons.”
- “The 22 caliber bullet will lodge in the lungs, and we can get it out. A 9 mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”
- “The idea of a high caliber weapon, there is no rationale for it in terms of self-protection, hunting.”
- “There was a while there where people were saying, you know, the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, and what we have to do is to be able to take on the government when they are wrong. To do that you need an F-1; you need an Abrams tank.”
- “I know that it makes no sense to be able to be able to purchase something that can fire up to 300 rounds.”
Biden admitted he is almost powerless to order gun control restrictions by executive order. However, he said he would push Republicans to join Democrats in passing stricter gun control legislation that he could enact into law.
