Someone give Vice President Joe Biden a pocket Constitution because he is in desperate need of a review.
In an interview with CNN’s Gloria Borger on Monday, Joe Biden made the ridiculous claim that “the Second Amendment says you can limit who can own a gun.”
Biden was asked by Borger, “So does Bernie Sanders have to change his position on gun manufacturers in order to have your support and you out there campaigning for him, should he be the nominee?”
The Vice President responded, “No, (what) Bernie Sanders has to do is say the Second Amendment says which he has of late, the Second Amendment says you can limit who can own a gun. That people who are criminals shouldn’t have guns. People who are schizophrenic and have mental illnesses shouldn’t have guns and he has said that.”
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Obviously, nowhere in the Second Amendment does it give government the authority to limit who can own a gun.
It is not clear whether or not Biden actually believes what he says, that the Second Amendment can take away an individual’s right to own a gun, or if he deliberately made an attempt to prey on CNN viewers with a quick perversion of reality.
