If Joe Biden thought his approval ratings were abysmal before Memorial Day, just wait until Americans get a lot of what he’s trying to insinuate on Sunday.
The President, who has been attempting to coerce some changes to the nation’s gun laws over the course of the last week, used the holiday weekend to deliver a stark message to the nation: That the Second Amendment to our Constitution was “not absolute”.
President Joe Biden pushed for more gun control on Monday, even though it was Memorial Day, a national patriotic holiday.
“The Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute,” Biden said to reporters.
Then things went ever further off the rails.
The president spoke to reporters about gun control as he returned to Washington, DC, from Delaware for Memorial Day ceremonies.
Biden falsely claimed again that Americans were unable to purchase a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed, despite being repeatedly fact-checked as false by even the Washington Post and Politifact.
“You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed and you couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weapons,” he said.
The Commander in Chief’s suggestions, specifically those regarding the alleged malleability of one of our nation’s founding documents, are to sure to kick off a hearty debate among elected officials.
And, with the midterm elections coming up, there are going to be plenty of opportunities for that debate to rage.
