Former Vice President Joe Biden and some in the Democratic Party might want to deny it, but the cat is out of the bag now: they want to destroy the Second Amendment. I know, this really isn’t news. You, loyal readers, have known this was the Democrats’ long game for decades. It’s the reason why some were quite irked when former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, his real name is Robert Francis, said: “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” and other firearms that are so-called assault weapons. That’s liberal speak for a gun that looks scary, though owned by millions. To recap, an AR-15 is a rifle owned by millions, it doesn’t fire a high-caliber round, and it’s firing mechanism is no different than a handgun used by millions of civilians and police officers alike. It’s semi-automatic, one bullet per trigger pull.
But and I know I’m preaching to the choir, you already knew that too—that that liberal media doesn’t care about lexicon, knowing the proper terms or the laws because that’s not the point. Gun confiscation is the goal. Period. And white guy Bob blew the game and gave us oodles of political ammunition for multiple cycles. Beto endorsed Biden. Biden, in turn, said he was going to follow his lead on gun control, which is straight-up confiscation. Beto as the nation’s gun czar would be a parade of horrible too terrible to contemplate. And now, Biden has hired his former campaign manager to helm his 2020 bid (via NYT):
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is planning to announce this afternoon that he has hired Jennifer O’Malley Dillon as his new campaign manager, according to two Democratic officials, elevating a veteran Democratic strategist as he tries to scale up his limited organization and pivot toward President Trump and the general election.
Ms. O’Malley Dillon, 43, managed former Representative Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign last year and before that was a top aide on former President Barack Obama’s re-election team.
Presidential campaigns always expand as they transition from the primary to the fall election, which Mr. Biden is clearly doing after building a near-insurmountable delegate lead against Senator Bernie Sanders.
But by tapping Ms. O’Malley Dillon as campaign manager, Mr. Biden is also signaling to Democratic donors and elected officials that he knows he has to broaden an operation that, until his Super Tuesday success, had been underfunded.
By installing Ms. O’Malley Dillon now, Mr. Biden is effectively attempting to catch his organization up to his success and status as the Democratic front-runner.
Well, if O’Malley was helming the ‘we’re going to take your guns’ agenda of Beto, then it looks like Biden is pretty open to it as well. Could there be a stop to the Biden hiccups of the campaign trail? We’ll see. Probably not because this is Joe Biden and there are many, many aides tasked with keeping Joey Boy more or less from getting into situations where he makes a fool of himself. Granted, Beto made his pitch that only the government should own firearms on the grounds of…Kent State. You know, where the government shot and killed a couple of students in 1970. And now, we have Joe Biden telling a Michigan voter that he’s “full of s**t” and threatened to slap him after being pressed on gun rights. The voter thinks Biden wants to do that which is why he asked. Katie has more:
The Detroit union worker who former Vice President Joe Biden said was "full of sh*t" for asking about the Second Amendment during a campaign stop this week is speaking out about his experience with the Democratic presidential candidate.
During an interview with Fox and Friends Wednesday morning, Jerry Wayne explained what went down.
"It was a little bit disturbing to see that a politician wants to take away my right to defend myself," Wayne said. "He doesn't need to touch anybody's weapon at all. What we need to do is we need to concentrate on teaching people how to respect firearms and how to use them, not take them away."
"This is a right we need to protect with our heart and soul and it shouldn't be infringed," he continued.
"I'll slap you right here!"— Michael Ahrens (@michaelahrens) March 10, 2020
Cue the mainstream media coverage of Biden melting down and physically threatening a voter. ...right? https://t.co/l0yvLnv9ZT
And now, with Mr. gun grabber’s campaign manager now taking over Biden’s operation—let’s say the former VP plans to be like his old boss when it comes to gun rights. He wants to strip them.
