Former Vice President Joe Biden wants to come after so-called “assault weapons.”
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday, Biden says gun owners have every reason to be worried about their gun rights under his administration.
Cooper started off the interview by saying “So to gun owners out there who say well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns.”
Biden quickly responded “Bingo”.
“BINGO!, you’re right, if you have an assault weapon.”

He added, “You’re right if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period. Look, the Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own. You can’t buy a bazooka. You can’t have a flame thrower. The guys who make these arguments are the people who say, ‘The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots. We need the protection against the government.'”
Biden wants to “institute a national buy back program” to get “assault weapons” off the streets. Given the vague nature of “assault weapon” categorizations, many normal semi-automatic weapons would fall under this kind of ban.
The former Vice President said, “Right now there is no legal way to deny them the right if they legally purchased them but we can in fact make a major effort to get them off the street and out of the possession of people.”
Biden has been a reliable supporter of gun control throughout his decades in Congress.
Biden also voted for the Brady Act of 1993, one of the largest expansions of gun control in recent history.
The former Vice President is just one of many faces in the monolithically anti-gun Democratic Party of today.
So far, he appears to be the frontrunner to win the Democratic Party nomination.
