Speaking Monday at a campaign event in Iowa, presidential hopeful Joe Biden called to ban all guns with “magazines that can hold multiple bullets.”
Either Biden doesn’t understand basic firearm terminology, or he is calling to ban almost all guns.
“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, is absolutely mindless,” said Biden. “It is no violation of the Second Amendment. It’s just a bow to the special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA.”
Since all magazines hold multiple bullets, it looks like the comment was a mistake.
When asked about another mishap – sharing a war story that was inaccurate in almost every detail – Biden told reporters that his mistakes did not affect the point of the story and would not affect his abilities as president.
“I was making a point about a generation. That has nothing to do with judgement of whether or not you send troops to war, the judgement of whether you bring someone home, the judgement of whether you decide on a healthcare policy.”
The mix-up is nothing new for Sleepy Joe, who mistakenly said “Vermont” while speaking to voters in New Hampshire and said that he was Vice President during the school shooting in Parkland, Florida last year.
He has also been criticized for saying that “poor kids are just as bright as white kids” and for making jokes about allegations that he inappropriately touched women. He also told a very touching and emotion-filled story about a soldier who died in battle. Unfortunately, it never happened, it was a complete fantasy.
Author’s Note: If it were Trump making mistakes during speeches (which he ocassionaly does), the media would accuse him of lying, as they have so many times, without cause. By arguing that his mistakes don’t matter, is Biden defending his right to use false statements on the campaign trail?
As expected, the RNC has seized on Biden’s mistakes to argue that he is mentally unfit to serve as president.
