Joe Biden is treading dangerous waters. An escalation of anti-Second Amendment rhetoric is raising concerns, especially as the commander in chief threatens military action against lawful gun owners.
Campaign season tends to bring out the worse (or the best) in most politicians. Political messages are intentionally inflamed to invigorate voters and reinspire action ahead of elections. Oftentimes the promises made on the campaign trail go unfulfilled, lost in the wasteland of endless politician lies.
However, when fundamental rights are threatened and when politicians begin promising to disarm the American people, it must be taken seriously.
Democrats are beginning to increase the temperature of their anti-gun rhetoric, which culminated on Tuesday with President Joe Biden threatening to use military action against “brave right-wing Americans” who’re willing to defend the rights of Americans to defend themselves against tyrannical governments.
Biden was speaking in Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday while promoting gun control and bolstering police forces across the nation. Biden pushed for a federal ban on so-called “assault weapons” and took further aim at “MAGA Republicans” in what could be one of his most extreme political speeches to date.
“For those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun,” Biden warned
.@JoeBiden mocks patriots who correctly state the Second Amendment was written to allow the PEOPLE to defend the nation from a tyrannical government.

If that statement doesn’t send shivers down your spine, then you aren’t paying enough attention.
Joe Biden is no stranger to making inflammatory and threatening statements against law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment in general.
On multiple occasions in 2021 and 2022, Biden claimed the Second Amendment was “not absolute.”

Biden has called on Congress to pass a ban on “assault weapons and high capacity magazines” shortly after a mass shooter killed 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. Biden tried to assure Americans that “this is not about taking away anyone’s guns” or “vilifying gun owners.”
“The Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute,” Biden had said.
Biden has essentially issued a call to arms for those “brave right-wing Americans” willing to defend the constitution from progressive gun control.
If war is what you want, Joe, then war is what you’ll get.
