In a new attack on the Second Amendment, President Joe Biden has repeated his claim that you can’t fight the US government unless you have an F-15 fighter. It’s the third time Biden has said this. Many Americans are understandably worried that their president keeps pointing out how much more firepower he has than they do.
Giving a pro-gun-control speech in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on August 30, Biden called for a federal ban on assault weapons (which were banned by President Ronald Reagan in 1996) and claimed that Second Amendment rights are “not unlimited.” Then he insisted that gun owners can’t fight the US government anyway because “You need something a little more than a gun” — more specifically, you need Biden’s favorite jet warplane.
This is the third time since 2020 that the president has said that anyone who wants to fight the US military needs an F-15. While campaigning in New Hampshire in February of 2020, he said, “if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles.” Fast forward to June 2021, when he upped the ante saying, “…you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.” His apparent obsession with the idea is ringing alarm bells.
Is Biden trying to undermine the whole concept behind the Second Amendment, that an armed populace can resist a tyrannical government? Or is he reminding the American people that he’s the one who controls the F-15s, and if he decides to turn them against us, there’s nothing we can do about it?
