He promised ‘zero tolerance’ for dealers who break the rules but also mocked Americans who believe they need firearms to protect their rights from the government.
‘If you want to think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons,’ he said.
First, the 2nd Amendment was written specifically to preserve our ability to “throw off such government.”
Second, this glib comment has been touted for years by silly liberals. No, you don’t need nukes to take on the government. Countries like Afghanistan, Vietnam, and even the United States have proven that a determined population can throw off a government even when that government has superior armament.
Also, think a little deeper about what Biden is saying. He is saying that if the citizens resist an oppressive government, he thinks that the appropriate response is for that government to use fighter jets and nuclear weapons against their own citizens. That’s scary as hell. It is precisely because of this totalitarian mindset that we NEED the 2nd Amendment.
