During a press conference at which Joe Biden addressed the soaring crimes rates across the nation, the cognitively-declining president gave a warning to gun-owning Americans who believe their firearms protect them from a tyrannical government, the very reason the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment in the U.S. Constitution.
Biden made numerous disturbing and false claims during the Wednesday press conference. He told the American people, “The Second Amendment was always limited in the type of people who could own a gun and the type of weapon you could own,” adding “You couldn’t buy a cannon!”
The Founders made no such distinction in drafting the Second Amendment. In fact, it is currently not illegal to own a cannon in United States. Private ownership of a cannon is permitted under the National Firearms Act.
Oh wow, look at that

The president went on to blatantly threaten law-abiding Americans with nuclear war if the intention is to protect themselves from the government’s tyranny with weapons of their own.
“If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons,” he said.

National Review senior writer David Harsanyi, who is an expert on the Second Amendment, previously pushed back on a nearly identical claim that Biden made about the how there have always been limits on the types of weapons that people can own.
A Second Amendment expert and writer for the National Review pushed back against Biden’s claims about the limits put forth in the Constitution for gun ownership:
I wrote a book on the history of American guns, and never once did I run across any law that restricted Americans from owning any weapons they desired . The idea of the federal government conducting any kind [of] domestic “gun policy” whatsoever would have been a completely alien concept to anyone before the 1930s.
The Biden administration felt compelled to act, pushing the president in front of reporters as violent crime skyrockets across the country. In most major cities, all Democrat-run with restictive gun laws already in place, murder rates have doubled, even tripled since Biden took office. Since last summer, Democrats have enabled the violent crime surge by allowing Far-Left domestic terrorists groups to run a-mock. Violence against police officers has also reached a staggering number, resulting in a mass exodus, leaving some cities without proper enforcement.
The National Rifle Association released a statement following Biden’s disturbing remarks:
“Crime rates are high because of the efforts to defund the police and a failure to prosecute career criminals. The simple fact is strict enforcement of existing laws – including gun laws – coupled with support of law enforcement and prosecutors to do their jobs would result in a dramatic decrease in crime. But, the president would rather play politics than make Americans safer.”
