Biden's Dangerous 'Black Friday' Message to Gun Owners

On Thanksgiving, we think about all the things we have to be thankful for in our lives. And if we are fortunate, we can sit down with our families to enjoy them and the day together. Unfortunately, with the high prices from Joe Biden’s inflation, our Thanksgiving is far more expensive and some are not even able to have the meal that they might normally have.

We do have challenges ahead, including the political challenges that we face as a country, with Joe Biden still in office. We can be thankful that the Republicans now have the House and that might serve to check at least some of Biden’s more harmful ambitions.

Biden expressed one of those more harmful ambitions, showing how much he wanted to trample on the Constitution on Thanksgiving, of all days. He said, “The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick.”

“It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single solitary rationale…,” Biden declared.

We still “allow” semi-automatic weapons to be purchased because we have a Constitution that protects those natural rights. Government doesn’t “allow” us to have them and people’s rights don’t disappear because ignorant people like Joe Biden want to play at being fascists. He thinks it’s “sick” to adhere to the Constitution? What is “sick” is that he keeps trying to use tragedy as an excuse to take away the rights of Americans. He never talks about doing something about the criminals or keeping the people who have committed crimes and are a danger locked up. He only talks about taking away the rights of the law-abiding.

Let’s look at what he’s saying here. “Semi-automatic weapons,” not even just “assault weapons” [whatever that means]. “Semi-automatic” applies to virtually all modern guns. He’s saying there’s no reason to have most guns — he wants to do away with most guns. Now, given his ignorance and his cognitive issues, does he even know what a semi-automatic weapon is? It’s possible he doesn’t know what he’s saying here. He’s shown again and again that he has no understanding of guns. But all we can go with is what he’s saying and what he’s saying is crazy, it goes far beyond the leftist talking points about AR-15s to virtually every weapon.

So here’s a suggestion for Joe. If he thinks that there isn’t any “social redeeming value” for semi-automatics, then he should tell the Secret Service members who protect him to give them up. He thinks there’s some value because he has that protection, he just doesn’t think we’re entitled to even a small semblance of that protection.

But the funny thing about his comments is that they are going to have the opposite effect of what I think he wants. He’s saying that right before Black Friday, so he’s going to cause a run on gun sales with people concerned that he’s going to come for guns yet again.
