Both Joe Biden and his talking points are getting old, especially when he spouts off lies about the Constitution.
In his recent address to Congress, Joe Biden fell back on all the same false talking points, specifically when discussing the Constitutional rights of Americans.
Biden once again went hard after the Second Amendment.
He claimed Americans overwhelmingly support gun reform, including many gun owners themelves.
He also doubled down on one of his most repeated lies of the last several months:
“No Amendment to the Constitution is absolute. You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theatre.”
After that, Biden said something that should terrify all Americans…
"We're Not Changing the Constitution, We're Being Reasonable."
Biden's claim that "no Amendment to the Constitution is absolute" is not a new one.
Three weeks ago, Biden used a pair of deadly shootings to push his administration's radical plans for gun reform.
The New York Post covered the original story:
President Biden on Thursday announced a slew of new gun control measures after a recent pair of high-profile mass shootings, and insisted the Second Amendment doesn’t grant an absolute right to own guns.
Biden presented the executive actions in the Rose Garden, joined by Attorney General Merrick Garland and Vice President Kamala Harris.
“No amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” Biden maintained, pointing to the famous Supreme Court ruling that you can’t yell fire in a crowded theater as part of the First Amendment’s free speech clause.
“You can’t yell … ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution,” he said.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic. Let me say it again: Gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it’s an international embarrassment.”
The most widely anticipated measure instructs the Justice Department to issue a proposed regulation within 30 days to undermine the at-home manufacture of so-called “ghost guns,” which can be made with equipment that drills and folds metal parts. Activists who oppose gun control have promoted the technology.
“Anyone from a criminal to a terrorist can buy this kit [and in] as little as 30 minutes put together a weapon,” Biden said. “I want to see these kits treated as firearms.”
Biden calls to ‘ban assault weapons’ in wake of Boulder shooting
Another action orders the Justice Department to issue a regulation within 60 days that would “make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.”
The White House said in a fact sheet, “The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.” However, the alleged gunman passed a federal background check before purchasing his weapon and it’s unclear if the new policy could have meaningfully altered the tragedy.
Another Biden rule orders the Justice Department to propose model legislation on “red flag” laws that states would have the option of adopting. The president said he also wants a national red flag law.
“Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others,” the White House fact sheet said.
Biden also is ordering a report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on the illegal firearms trade. And on Wednesday, Biden announced that he would nominate gun control advocate David Chipman to lead the ATF.
While Biden continues to alienate law-abiding citizens and their Second Amendment rights, the NRA says that interest in joining the organization has spiked 5000%.
Biden made many ignorant statements in his address, and now he's being held to the fire for it.
As Ted Cruz correctly pointed out, Joe Biden doesn't even understand what "We the people" means.
Biden claimed that "we the people" is the government.
