Joe Biden Has Long Been Hostile To The Second Amendment

Joe Biden has long been hostile to the Second Amendment

Delaware/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- There are some questions you can easily answer. One of them is Joe Biden’s stance on the Second Amendment. Here’s the quick scoop: He’s been hostile to our rights for over four decades.

Biden, though, stands out for his unwavering opposition to modern multi-purpose semi-automatic firearms. In November, 2017, he expressly stated that Stephen Willeford, the heroic armed citizen who stopped the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, should not have been able to buy the AR-15 he used to stop the attack.

Of course, the former vice president and senator never really addressed the fact that had the shooter’s conviction for domestic assault been entered into NICS in the first place, the shooting would not have happened. The victims became pawns in his latest push for sweeping gun control.

At times during the Obama Administration, Biden was out there, pushing for semi-auto bans after shootings. He even offered some astonishingly dumb advice about firing a shotgun blast into the air – disregarding a basic tenant of firearms safety. Yet despite displaying that he lacks the common sense to recognize that “what goes up must come down,” he thinks he knows better than the rest of us what firearms we should or should not be able to acquire for protection (or for hunting or any other lawful purpose). Anyone who takes Biden’s advice is just asking for legal trouble in both the criminal and civil areas.

In the 1990s, he voted for the 1994 ban on modern multi-purpose semi-automatic firearms, for the Brady Act, and for Frank Lautenberg’s effort to destroy gun shows. He voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act in both 2004 and 2005. In 2004, he ranted against the legislation, intended to stop the back-door effort at gun control that was being carried out by big-city mayors.

In 2007, Biden included (against the evidence provided by Chicago and Washington, DC – among other places) more gun control as a purported means to control crime – including an arbitrary ban on modern multi-purpose semi-automatic firearms and legislation intended to destroy gun shows in a crime bill.

Let’s face it people, Biden has cultivated an image over the years as a relative moderate. When it comes to Second Amendment issues, though, you should not believe it.

He is as much an anti-Second Amendment extremist as Dianne Feinstein is – and he is arguably more dangerous.

While Feinstein makes no bones about her opposition to the Second Amendment, Biden does very well at putting far too many gun owners at ease with the “I don’t want your deer rifle, I just want the AR-15 gone” schtick. In short, Joe Biden is arguably the most dangerous general election opponent for President Trump, and Second Amendment supporters should act accordingly.

Now for an important footnote to this: Anyone who wants to really learn about how to protect yourself at home (or elsewhere) or who wants to learn how to handle firearms safely should go to the NRA web site to find local instructors who can offer courses to fulfill your educational needs. We have a Second Amendment right, but with it comes the responsibility to know how to exercise it in a safe manner for ourselves, our loved ones, and our fellow citizens.

    My base on all of the Demo-Rats is that the main flow here on Ammo Land probably feel the same if it was a Republican or Independent or true Conservative, would have been Tared and Feathered, and hung out to Dry in a public arena for a public stoning !!!!!! Not so from any Demo-Rat, they come up with a mouth full of excuses, and followed by a full pardon for all of them, NO TRIAL, NO INVESTIGATIONS, NO JAIL TIME, oh we didn’t mean to do it, so we just get a pass, to go on with this is… Read more »

    “Guns Everywhere” and opposition to common sense safety legislation like universal background checks is not the Second Amendment. Its gun industry profit driven gun sales marketing. Joe Biden is a moderate, unlike the writers at AmmoLand. He is also a gentleman and has served America in the US Senate and as Vice President.
    And America still has, as of this moment, the worst per capita gun violence rate in the developed world and Oliver North is still a convicted gun trafficker who lied to Congress.

    The United states ranks 62nd in mass shootings. Gun ownership has went up and violence went down. And most gun violence comes from stolen guns not from the law abiding citizens. You believe whatever propaganda gets shoved down your throat. Far more lives are saved by guns than taken.

    You should at least tell the truth that North was exonerated. UBC’s are an infringement. BTW Joe’s under fire for groping isn’t he?
    A federal judge Monday dismissed the case against Oliver North at the request of the special prosecutor. It was a climactic finish to the lengthy criminal proceedings against the star defendant in the Iran-Contra affair, and North said he was “totally exonerated.”

    Peg, I’m not going to aim a personal attack at you. All the above did that very well. I would ask that you do an in-depth study of the Bill of Rights and why they were enshrined in the Constitution. Why are they the first ten amendments included? You are, like some others here, going strictly by emotion. Stop. Humans have the ability and responsibility to use reason and logic. Too many don’t. That’s why the anger gets rolling.

    When I pressed my doctor about the gun questions, he told me it had to do with suicide. They are afraid you are going to shoot yourselves. (Hello, I am from the government and I am here to help you). If someone wanted to commit suicide, wouldn’t it be a lot more easy and painless to just swallow some fentanyl or other opioids, and just go to sleep ? Who wants to shoot themselves now-a-days ? Yep, they are gathering info for the gun grabbers, since so many doctors are gun grabbers themselves.

    Of course, the 2nd doesnt give us the right to defend ourselves, it does establish the governments responsibility to defend that right. And all the others too. I know that i am a free man, and i will never ask permission from anyone, to arm myself. I love and respect our country, and its constitution, but i have no problem whatsoever, trampling on any law that is unconstitutional. And i will always do exactly what the hell i want to do. There is not a nut moonbat liberal alive, whose opinion of me affects me in any way whatsoever.

    Peg, your blatant display of arrogance, propaganda, and lack of mental fortitude displays your total lack of knowledge and common sense. You meaning the left leaning, brainless squids have lost your minds. The 2nd is here because our founders knew that there would come a day that our government will do exactly what the Democrats are trying to push right now. The violence we see is mainly from the left. Beware when you keep poking the bear, the bear will eventually fight back. Stop poking the bear. Patriots will defend our constitution. I swore an oath several times. That oath… Read more »

If he was a republican they would have already berated him to death, but being a democrat makes his actions acceptable because he is just being affectionate. When he man handles young girls and it is recorded that would give anyone a pause. By the way, where is the good doctor Mrs. with all this going on.

    Smokin Joe the pedophile Biden isn’t the only anti-second amendment we have in Washington DC.

    Newly appointed attorney General William Barr is not a fan of the Second Amendment, voted in favor of the Brady Bill, stated publicly that he is in support of banning what he calls assault weapons as well as magazines ( he called them clips) in excessive 10 Rounds.

    See Hun Owners of America for more facts regarding William Barr’s anti 2nd. Amendment opinions.

    PRO gun safety are you being serious? Joe says to “Fire the Shotgun Through the Door”, where is the PRO gun safety in doing that? Joe also says “In November, 2017, he expressly stated that Stephen Willeford, the heroic armed citizen who stopped the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, should not have been able to buy the AR-15 he used to stop the attack.”, where is the PRO gun safety in that? Joe apparently didn’t want the shooter stopped!
    BTW will you be wanting Joe to nuzzle the back of your neck now that he has your unqualified support?

    Please stop and take your medication Peg. You admitted in your post that you are unqualified to even comment in this discussion. The 2nd Amendment MUST not be changed or eleminated. It is an innalienable RIGHT of EVERY US CITIZEN to own and bear arms for their protection, specifically against our own government, which our 2nd Amendment plainly states, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!!

    It is apparent that you are either ignorant, misinformed, or some sort of Anti-American figure, parading as the citizens advocate for said al-edged Victim hood. Idiotic thought processes, such as yours is the reason why the 2nd Amendment exists. Keep barking nonsense, please. It makes the fight real. Reach into your back pocket. There you will find your mental midget and your assistance to make it through life.

So why don’t we start by removing your 1A rights? VeepCreep is constantly protected by guns of all types, some fully automatic. Why is he afforded the right to self preservation and I am not?

    You should get along just great with the NRA, they don’t truly support the second amendment and instead compromise and call for bans and unconstitutional laws before turning around and asking the gun owners they just betrayed for more money to “fight for your rights”. Gun Owners of America and Firearms Policy Coalition are the only organizations that care about your freedom.

    “even offered some astonishingly dumb advice about firing a shotgun blast into the air” should be remembered when trying to figure out what Biden has actually accomplished in all the years as a “public” servant.
