Biden: Americans don't need guns because they'd need "F-15s and nukes" to "take on the government"

Published in Blog on June 24, 2021 by Article V Patriot

When the Framers of the Constitution wrote the Second Amendment, they sought to ensure that We the People would have the ability to resist a tyrannical centralized government. There's no question about this. The Second Amendment isn't about hunting -- it's about armed self-defense, both against criminals and against tyranny.

Liberty-loving Americans won't be surprised to learn that President Joe Biden doesn't believe the Second Amendment is relevant to 21st century America. In a recent speech announcing a crackdown on gun stores, Biden ridiculed the idea that an armed populace could ever resist the United States military.

"Those who say the blood of lib- — the blood of patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government," he mumbled. "Well, the tree of liberty is not watered with the blood of patriots. What’s happened is that there have never been — if you wanted or if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons."

Biden's attitude here is even more shocking than the gun control proposals he's pushing. According to our President, the federal government is all-powerful and everyday Americans should get in line. There's nothing We the People can possibly do to limit federal power, and we shouldn't even try.

We should be clear that we at the Convention of States Project are in no way advocating for armed violence. In fact, we're doing the opposite.

Along with the Second Amendment, the Framers, in their wisdom, outlined another way We the People could limit federal overreach. Article V of the Constitution allows the states to call a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing constitutional amendments. These amendments can put the President back in his constitutional box by limiting his power, banning executive orders, and shrinking the authority of all three branches of the federal government.

In addition, amendments can also be written that shore up Second Amendment rights and ensure that the federal government will no longer infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. 

Joe Biden is wrong. We the People can fight back against federal tyranny -- not with guns but with the Constitution. Sign the petition below to join the movement!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
