Biden: ‘Rational’ gun policy would include bans on ’50 clips in a weapon’

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who’s 2020 Democratic presidential campaign is faltering amid strong challenges by Sen. Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg, said Sunday he believes that having a “rational policy” on guns means making sure that people can’t have “50 clips in a weapon.”

Biden also told a crowd in New Hampshire ahead of Tuesday’s primaries that Americans would need a lot more than an AK-47 to take on a tyrannical government.

The former vice president and one-time Democratic frontrunner made his comments during a discussion about why kids have to learn active shooter drills in school, saying, “Because we’re unwilling to have a rational policy that says you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.”

Biden also claimed, “I now have over 58 percent of the NRA members acknowledging that you cannot own an assault weapon. There is no need for it. You can’t have a magazine that is more than 10 rounds in it.”

The Daily Wire reported that it contacted the NRA to verify Biden’s claim, but the organization said he couldn’t be correct because the group is private and does not release information about its members, especially for polling purposes.

“Those who say, ‘The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots’ – a great line, well, guess what,” Biden said at another point during his speech. “The fact is, if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you if you’re worried about the government knocking down your door.”

  1. Joe do u actually think our servicemen r going to fight their fellow Americans! Just because government assbags like u order them to…I don’t think so

  2. Yo, Joe, you forgot the last few words of the Jefferson quote about the tree of liberty occasionally needing to be watered by the blood of patriots AND TYRANTS! The 2A was adopted to keep government from becoming tyrannical. Threatening the rights and liberties of citizens, you sound more like somebody running for dictator of one of those countries whose citizens are trying to leave rather than the president of this Beacon of Liberty and Freedom!

  3. Hello, Once we can kick the next civil war off Joe, Russia, china, Korea, everyone will be sending the patriots , the latest military gear. Just like we have done to other countries during regime change. So, yes, we will have what we need to fight Joe. Joe, look, it’s a bird, no its a plane , no, its a chinese hellfire.
