Most Americans consider the vice presidency a useless office. Even John Adams thought that it was “the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or imagination conceived.” Yet, no other officeholder has made more of a mockery out of the position in recent history than the current Vice President, Joe Biden. Biden is notorious for making off handed comments and his latest gaffe reflects the lack of consideration he has towards the United States Constitution.
On Tuesday, Biden spoke with Parents Magazine in an online town hall forum on Facebook stating that, "the Constitution does allow the government to conclude that there are certain types of weapons that no one can own.” One can excuse a youngster for making such a gravely erroneous remark but for it to come from the Vice President of the United States himself is most embarrassing. Contrary to Biden’s version, the Second Amendment of the Constitution specifically states: “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.” Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the government has the authority to “conclude” what type of weapons the people can own.
Unfortunately, for those unfamiliar with the Constitution, Biden’s comment is extremely misleading and promotes the Progressive anti-gun agenda against the Second Amendment. His comment can only mean one of two things: he willfully attacked the Constitution to promote the Obama Administration’s radical cause or he is unfamiliar with the Constitution. Whatever the case may be, as the Vice President of the United States, Biden’s comment is both disgraceful and alarming. Yet, instead of accountability, we can expect him, along with his cronies in the mainstream media, to laugh off the incident as another harmless Biden moment. As hilarious as his actions may seem, the last laugh is on Americans who honor the Constitution and obey the law. If our leaders are unaware of the supreme law of the land, or willfully ignore it, others will soon find the United States as buffoonish as Biden and we will surely become the laughing stock of the world.
