Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted to Anderson Cooper on CNN that he will be coming for the guns if he wins the Democratic nomination for president and defeats Donald Trump in 2020.
After Cooper quizzed Biden on the “come for your guns” talking points he would inevitably receive from Republicans, Biden responded by saying: “Bingo. You’re right, if you have an assault weapon.”
When the assault rifle ban was passed in 1994 and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton, Biden was among the top cheerleaders for that unconstitutional gun control legislation while serving as a U.S. Senator.
“In case after case of murderous rampages by disturbed and violent thugs, the ability of military-style assault weapons to kill and maim not just a few but eight or 10, 14, 35 people in just minutes has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt,” he said at the time.
Biden is hoping to enforce a more stringent version of the 1990s assault weapons ban if he is able to win the presidency.
“Does anybody think it made any sense that someone is able to walk into a gun store, buy an assault weapon that has multiple rounds or buy an assault weapon that has 100 rounds?” Biden asked.
“Do you want more of them on the street? Do we want to do that?” Biden added.
He made the case on CNN that resistance is futile for anyone who believes they can defend their liberty from a tyrannical government with firearms.
“The guys who make these arguments say ‘The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, we need the protection against the government.’ Well, you’ll need an F-15 for that. You need something well beyond whether or not you have an assault weapon,” Biden said.
Later in the interview, Biden pivoted and claimed that he would not be coming for the guns directly. He would instead use indirect measures to get guns out of the hands of Americans.
“That’s not walking into their home, knocking on their doors, and going through the gun cabinets,” Biden 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.”
However, Biden did claim that his hypothetical administration would not use an executive order to come for the guns – in what could be considered a rebuke to his primary rival, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
Biden said: “I’m the guy that pushed the Brady Bill through the United States Congress when I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee on background checks. You can in fact do those kinds of things, but cannot as a matter of executive order constitutionally say ‘This is what we’re going to do relative to this particular weapon.’”
Although Biden may not be the most hostile Democratic contender against firearms freedom, he would still infringe upon the 2nd Amendment and wield his power to make life more difficult for gun owners if he obtained the highest office of the land.
Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump
The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.
A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
