President Joe Biden was caught claiming that the 2nd Amendment prevented Americans from purchasing cannons during his speech campaigning for gun control earlier this week.
Biden said during his speech that, “The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of the people who could own a gun [and] what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”
Biden made the same claim last year as the Democrat primaries were kicking off. Julie Anne Sweet, director of military studies at Baylor University, explained that “It seems highly unlikely that there were restrictions on the private ownership [of cannons]. Any sort of gun regulations would have been at the local level, and therefore incredibly difficult and tedious to chase down. The new states were still writing new constitutions and probably did not take this matter into consideration.”
Biden’s claims are similar to those that many other prominent Democrats have so ignorantly espoused.
Democrats have gone to every length they possibly can to push gun control. Americans shouldn’t expect an apology from President Biden for his absurd claims.
Biden’s claims are a good reminder that the Democrat Party hasn’t given up on its dreams of taking guns from Americans.
