Detroit, MI – Presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden got into a throw down over guns with an auto worker in Detroit on Tuesday (video below).
The profanity-laced argument happened as Biden visited with members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers at the Fiat-Chrysler plant they’re building on March 10, CNBC reported.
The dispute was captured on video and showed a man in a hard hat complaining the candidate was “actively trying to end our Second Amendment rights.”
“You’re full of s–t,” Biden replied in the video.
“I support the Second Amendment,” the former Vice President said. But then he added “the Second Amendment — just like right now, if you yell ‘fire,’ that’s not free speech.”
“I have a shotgun, I have a 20-gauge, a 12-gauge, my son’s gun,” Biden said. “Guess what? You’re not allowed to own [just] any weapon. I’m not taking your gun away at all. You need 100 rounds?”
When the auto worker pointed out that Biden has said in the past he will take guns away, the candidate exploded, the video showed.
“I did not say that! I did not say that!” Biden yelled.
The worker said he’d seen it in a video.
“It’s a viral video like the other ones that came out,” Biden said, and then he claimed it was all “lies.”
“Don’t be such a horse’s a–,” he told the auto worker in the video.
But Biden has repeatedly demonstrated his ignorance about firearms when talking about guns during the campaign.
He called for a ban on “pistols with 9mm bullets” during a $2,800-per-head fundraising event on Nov. 15, 2019.
The former vice president said he was befuddled by “bizarre” arguments presented by some gun-rights supporters, The Seattle Times reported.
He then likened 9mm handguns to bazookas and “machine guns,” The Seattle Times reported.
“Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds?” he asked the crowd.
Biden again launched into his goose-hunting experiences, noting that Delaware limits hunters to just three shotgun shells.
“We protect geese from Canada more than we do people,” he declared.
Just days before, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Biden shared his thoughts on “magazine clips.”
“I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a round – a magazine with 100 clips in it!” he told the cheering crowd.
“100 b-bullets in it,” he stammered a second later, recognizing his mistake.
Understanding basic firearms knowledge has been a struggle for Biden in the past.
During a campaign stop in Iowa in September, he called for a ban on “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” which would essentially outlaw most handguns, The Washington Times reported.
“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them is absolutely mindless,” he declared during his visit to Cedar Rapids. “It is no violation of the Second Amendment. It’s just a bow to the special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA.”
Biden also demonstrated his confusion about firearms terms during a Democratic fundraiser in New York in August.
“There is no rationale for us to have these assault weapons,” he told the 250-member crowd, according to the Washington Examiner. “Who needs a clip that can hold 100 rounds?”
Presumably, Biden was attempting to refer to “high capacity magazines,” not the actual “clips” that feed magazines.
Biden promised at a campaign event in Texas on Super Tuesday that if he was elected, he would put failed candidate Beto O’Rourke in charge of “the gun problem.”
