Biden Goes Swalwell-Lite: “you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon” IMG NRA-ILA

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The campaigns of Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald Trump in November 2020 seem to be on a never-ending quest to see which one can implode in the most spectacular fashion. We’ve documented the collapse of Representatives Eric Swalwell and Robert Francis O’Rourke, as well as predicted the demise of Senator Kamala Harris. Senator Cory Booker has also left the building, and Senator Elizabeth Warren has seen her support fade precipitously.

All (with the exception of Swalwell) of these candidates, at one point or another, were considered rising stars or poised to be embraced nationally as the new standard-bearer for the Democrats. And while Warren does remain an active candidate, her third-place finish (at least as far as we know) in Iowa was somewhat of a push for her among those making wagers on who will face Trump. Finishing a distant fourth in New Hampshire this week should be enough to tell her that a head-to-head against President Trump is simply not in her future.

Which brings us to the man who had been the frontrunner for the Democrats since he entered the race; former Vice President Joe Biden.

At one point last May, Biden held a commanding lead over his competition, hitting 41% support at the national level, and outpacing his closest rival by slightly more than 25%.

But oh, how the mighty have fallen.

The polling aggregators at Real Clear Politics recently put Biden in second place, his national support having plummeted by more than 20%. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is their new frontrunner.

In the Iowa Caucus debacle, where Biden once held a solid lead with 28% support, President Obama’s old running mate finished a dismal fourth (again, as far as we can tell). This week, in New Hampshire, Biden pulled out of the state before voting was even completed so he could focus on the upcoming South Carolina primary in a desperate attempt to salvage his campaign’s viability. As is a recurring theme with Biden, he once held a commanding lead in the Granite State with 34% support, but that support collapsed, and he fell even further back in the field, finishing in fifth place.

So, what do we make of the Biden collapse? To be honest, everyone should have seen it coming.

After all, Joe Biden has a propensity for making bizarre statements, and we’ve covered his gift for gaffes in the past. His curious approach to winning over Democrats continued while campaigning in New Hampshire, when he uttered one of the most odd insults ever offered by a candidate for president, after a young lady asked him about his lackluster performance in Iowa.

With a struggling campaign, what should a former frontrunner do? Looks like one approach Biden has chosen is to follow the lead of so many failed presidential campaigns during this election cycle; ratchet up the anti-gun rhetoric.

Of course, Joe being Joe, he had to add his own incomprehensible take on the subject.

During a campaign event in New Hampshire, before his hopes of a positive showing had completely flamed out, Biden lamented over the notion that “we’re unwilling to have a rational policy that says you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.”

Are those paper clips, binder clips, or just news clips of a candidate having yet another “senior moment?”

Biden regularly (although inaccurately) interchanges the terms clips and magazines, so does he think the gun industry has developed a new firearm that is capable of having dozens of magazines attached to it? Perhaps this is another one of those mythical guns that Biden has dreamed of before, like the “James Bond-style” of firearm he believes exists outside of a Hollywood movie lot.

But Biden didn’t stop there. While he didn’t go full-Swalwell (never go full-Swalwell) with the threat of nuclear weapons being used against American citizens, the foundering candidate did make reference to the futility of Americans offering any resistance should a tyrannical government ever rise to power.

“The fact is,” Biden proclaimed, “if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles.”

In other words, don’t bother trying to resist a tyrannical government, as its military will be too well equipped. Tell that to the rag-tag group of citizens who banded together in 1775, armed with their hunting muskets often pulled down from over the fireplace, to face off against, and defeat, the greatest military power of the time.

If Biden wasn’t such an evil, vicious, crooked politician with nefarious intent this would almost be sad to watch.

Now we know why the World Famous JV ex POTUS BHO did not endorse Biden.
Biden was the insurance policy to protect JV POTUS. Nobody wanted Joe in the Oval Office.

@james, I am guessing that some high-up DNC members realized that no one could beat Trump, and if Joe ran, his career would not be harmed. Just guessing.

Poor old Joe! What is scary is that a lot of people think Joe Biden should be the ‘next leader of the (not so) FREE world. Visions of an ’empty’ military come to mind when considering “Shotgun” Joe’s solution for ‘home invaders;’ “Just get you a double-barreled shotgun and let off a couple of shots off of the balcony or porch/window.” The (non) thought that just shooting into the air would ‘scare’ anybody off – never mind that you now have at best a ‘club,’ if the ‘rapists/killers/thieves’ SEE you are now disarmed, and decide to get you anyway!

Does this senile old buffoon really not know the difference between a clip and a cartridge, but thinks he has the expertise to opine on what people do and do not need to defend themselves? That’s not a word salad – that’s a word garbage disposal.

When watching Joe at the debate, he reminded of where sports commentator Chris Berman would say, “He – Could – Go – All – The – Way!” only to watch him trip up over and over again on these little white lines that plague the playing field. Ol’ Joe is what he is, and just like Hillary “hot sauce” Clinton, can’t be anything else. Elect him and I guarantee you a game-changing fumble at the most critical moment of the game, with ol” Joe saying, “I coulda been somebody, but I was knocked out inda feirst round.

I remember having clips for the m-16 magazines in Viet Nam. Although I wasn’t a “combat personnel ” guy. Some of us sailors had m-16 s and some of the ammo came in bandoliers with pre loaded clips to feed the magazines. so 40 or 50 of them would have been welcome. I believe the clips held ten rounds and the magazines twenty. Long time ago, I could be wrong.

Yes. You are correct. It depends on which era you hail from. Back in the day we called magazines “clips” as well. Thing is, everyone knew what you were talking about because no one, short of the base commander, ever toted a six-shooter. At least not into actual combat. It was the M16, and a semi-automatic.

You know, he is right this time. I have tried and I cannot put even 2 clips in my firearm at the same time so I just do one at a time. Very smart man that Joe Biden is. I wonder what kind of matter he actually has in between his ears, if any at all.

@chiefton – Some drums will hold 100 rounds, which is 10 (stripper) clips worth. Doesn’t loading that mag and inserting into an AR mean that the AR can hold 10 clips? Never heard of any magazine holding 200, 300 or even 500 rounds – but hey maybe someday someone will make one. I wouldn’t chose to carry one as the gun would be unwieldy for anyone as weak as myself. Besides, anyone needing multiple hundreds of rounds on tap in a semiauto is doing something wrong. Besides ARs are quick and easy to reload – even easier than a pistol… Read more »

@Rock – I was surprised how well biden did in the last debate. Given previouse appearance of advanced dementia, the bar was very low. Wouldn’t matter though as I’m not interested in determining the worst of the bunch – just the potentially least dangerous. At this point looks like Mr. Pete – flying high with a score of -8 on scale of 0-10 where at zero I’m neutral between electing a cat or that candidate. Being a dog person, a dog is at 1 for me – low score because I recognize their limited abilities and because eight years is… Read more »

Unsurprisingly all the things he listed under “he’s the only one” – were things that make me like him less. 🙂

Further evidence that politicians are just puppets reciting talking points delivered to them by campaign funders with agendas. They neither know anything about which they speak nor care as long as they get some votes. They could really care less about the people they are supposed to be serving.

Well, technically hes right on at least one point, you cant have 20, 30, 40, or even 50 clips in a gun, you can only have 1 at a time, if he is actually referring to magazines. If he means circlips or c-clips then I guess there could be more.
It should be illegal for these dumbasses to propose laws about anything they dont know anything about.

I’m guessing that it’s sickle cell anemia, but for those with only a single remaining brain cell… 🙂

Only blacks and arabs can get sickle cell, and similarly, only those with a single brain cell can get single cell anemia. And instead of the symptom being body weakness, it shows up as extreme mental weakness, AKA; Biden Brain Syndrome, or BBS.

@Knute – Sickle cell is an interesting case for statistical application of Darwin’s law. A recessive gene which when expressed (2x the gene) – it kills the individual before they can pass on their genes. When individual has single instance of the gene it does not express itself as the disease. However the single sickle cell gene does provide some immunity to malaria. Thus a carrier (single copy of the gene) is more likely to live long enough to breed, and if they breed with non-carrier half their kids will be carriers while if they breed with another carrier one… Read more »

Maybe Joe, along with the rest of the dims, thinks you put the magazines in the bullets that go in the clips and put the powder in on top of them and pull the trigger to set them all off. Oh, wait, maybe the primer goes in the barrel so it can lead the rest of the stuff that goes in the gun behind the shotgun pellets so it will fire properly.
Just a thought.

Yes they are interchangeable terms, if you don’t know what you’re talking about; and Biden obviously doesn’t.

@Street, they are interchangeable terms when the sh!t is flying that is for sure. I the cool dispassionate venue of a gun periodical the terms may not be. Biden, however, has no excuse.

@HtCu – Isn’t there an internal magazine – into which you put the clip? So more properly “no external, removable magazines”? Not sure of my terminology, maybe it’s not a magazine if cartridges go in – in a clip. Do know that if you push rounds from stripper clips into a firearm such as SKS or Mosin – rounds are going into an internal magazine… Now that I see the picture – I too do not see a magazine. Must be slightly to left of image – or entirely within the wooden stock. Don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a… Read more »
