Many of America’s most popular rifles will be illegal and subject to confiscation under a plan announced by Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Under the Biden plan, so-called “assault weapons” would be taken from Americans under a “buy back” plan.
FOX News reports:
The former vice president, in a CNN interview, said that a Biden administration would push for a “national buyback program” to get such firearms “off the street.”
Asked what he’d say to gun owners worried that Biden would be coming for their guns, he quickly answered: “Bingo! You’re right, if you have an assault weapon.
“The fact of the matter is [assault weapons] should be illegal. Period,” Biden said. “The Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own. You can’t buy a bazooka. You can’t have a flame-thrower.”
“Buy back” plans are national gun confiscation, but gun owners are handed a check in order to make the program look voluntary. Under most “buy back” plans gun owners who don’t want to “sell” their guns are subject to arrest.
Biden’s definition of “assault weapons” includes nearly every hunting and sporting rifle sold in the United States, including guns with certain cosmetic features that look “scary” or can accept magazines larger than 10 rounds.
While Biden claims “The Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own” and “You can’t have a flame-thrower,” the Second Amendment clearly says the opposite and flame-throwers are legal under federal law. California is the only state that bans them.
