Biden threw another punch at Second Amendment supporters Tuesday evening, mockingly declaring that they’d “need an F-16” to take on the government. Spewing out his views at a swanky high-dollar fundraising event in California, Biden continued to fan the flames of the gun control debate. He even the audacity to claim that the Second Amendment states that there are specific weapons Americans can’t own.

Biden stated:

“We have to change,” Biden said. “There’s a lot of things we can change, because the American people by and large agree you don’t need a weapon of war. I’m a Second Amendment guy. I taught it for four years, six years in law school. And guess what? It doesn’t say that you can own any weapon you want. It says there are certain weapons that you just can’t own. Even during when it was passed, you couldn’t own a cannon. You can’t own a machine gun.… No, I’m serious.”

“You know, I love these guys who say the Second Amendment is — you know, the tree of liberty is water with the blood of patriots. Well, if [you] want to do that, you want to work against the government, you need an F-16. You need something else than just an AR-15,” he added.

“You know one of the reasons why the AR-15 is so strongly supported by so many folks in that — in that industry? Number one, it’s the cheapest weapon to make and it’s the highest profit motive they have for any weapon that is made. It makes more money to sell an AR-15 than any other weapon you can buy,” he said.

The Second Amendment never puts a limit on who can “keep and bear arms,” nor does it specify the type of arms to be borne. Yet, Biden’s allies conveniently ignore that federal meddling in gun control only made its debut in 1934, a solid few decades after the Second Amendment was etched into the Constitution.
