Joe “Buy a Shotgun” Biden, despite continued gaffes, continues to grow his lead for the 2020 Democrat nomination in the race for President. He started out with a 26-point lead. The Hill even described Biden’s early lead as “landslide proportions” only eight days ago. Just two days ago in the Hill, they had the Biden campaign lead growing to 40-points.
With a 40-point lead among Democrats, who needs rallies with over 100,000 people in attendance?
And Monday evening, the handsy former Vice-President told a bunch of wealthy donors at an Upper East Side condo that if he’s elected president, he will mandate “smart guns” to save America from gang violence.
From the Washington Examiner:
Former Vice President Joe Biden is taking inspiration from Agent 007 in explaining his plan to curb gun violence.
“If I get elected president of the United States of America with your help, if that happens, guns, we have the capacity now in a James Bond-style to make sure no one can pull a trigger unless their DNA and fingerprint is on it,” Biden told roughly 180 donors in an Upper East Side penthouse Monday evening. “We have that capacity to do it now. You know it.”
Biden was referring to so-called “smart guns,” which require the owner’s fingerprint to be digitally verified before the weapon can be operated.
Dear Joe: James Bond is not real. And smart guns don’t work.
And in our freedom-based economy, if so-called smart guns worked well, they would command the market. And the police would embrace them. Ditto for the federal agents.
But we already know they don’t work. Heck, I can’t get my iPad to recognize my fingerprint some days. Sometimes it takes multiple tries. Will Willie the home intruder patiently wait for my gun to recognize my fingerprint? Probably not. Probably not for you either.
Joe, being Joe, had not finished yet.
“Imagine all the people who would be alive today if the only person who could buy a gun is qualified because of background checks and they’re the only ones that can pull the trigger? So my point is there are so many things we have the capacity to do.”
Imagine if we progressed toward a future of freedom instead of a system that reenacts past tyrannies? Imagine if instead of trying to manipulate people, political candidates wanted people to understand the truth so we would all be better, smarter citizens?
