(Tea Party PAC) – As the recent shooting at a Texas church proved, one of the most important rights we have as Americans is the Second Amendment, and without it, we’re a people that is not only defenseless against criminals who want to take our lives and property, but also against tyranny that seeks to take our liberty and our power.
Democratic Party presidential hopeful Joe Biden, our former vice president, is out on the campaign trail doing his best to pander to all the groups in the Democratic Party voter base so that he can win the primary that’s rapidly approaching.
Biden recently told voters to make this year, 2020, the year of gun control, essentially telling folks to rally around the progressive platform and strip gun rights away from law abiding citizens.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Biden did this while re-tweeting an Associated Press story which showed an elevated number of mass killings in the U.S. in 2019.
Ironically, the list was not simply about firearm-related killings, it included killings carried out with axes, knives, and other weapons too.
Moreover, the AP story showed California–the state with more gun control than any other–also had the most “mass slayings” of any state in 2019.
But Biden re-tweeted the story anyway, and used it to call for gun control:
2019 was a year of record violence — it will be a moral failure if we allow 2020 to be the same. We have to elect leaders with the courage to take on the @NRA and pass common-sense gun safety reform. We have to end this epidemic.

On December 29, 2019, armed congregants at West Freeway Church of Christ, White Settlement, Texas, responded to an armed attacker. One congregant shot and killed the perpetrator just seconds after the attack began.
Just months earlier, Biden had criticized Texas’ law allowing concealed carriers to be armed in church for self-defense. He described the law as “absolutely irrational.”
This isn’t the first time that Biden has come out and made a controversial statement on gun control. In fact, back in October, Biden said that if a person doesn’t keep their guns under lock and key they should be liable for anything that happens involving the firearm.
“If you left you keys in a car out here and some kid picks that car…and kills somebody driving around the parking lot, you’re liable. Why in God’s name, if you have a weapon at home and it’s not under lock and key, should you not be held liable?” Biden asked.
He went on to say, “We should have a federal law making that the case.”
As you can see, Biden is no friend of the Constitution and most definitely not the Second Amendment. If we value our right to own firearms, then we must oppose every measure on this topic introduced into Congress.
The language of the Second Amendment is very plain and easy to understand. The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Therefore, any law that does just that is null and void. We have the right to own any firearm we choose.
Let’s hope that continues to be the case so we have the means to defend our liberty against tyranny.
