Since President Joe Biden’s disastrous debate performance last week, more and more people—including some of his biggest supporters—are beginning to talk about replacing him on the Democratic presidential ticket. Even many who declared him “perfectly fit” just a few years ago are now saying he needs to step aside and let someone else run against former President Donald Trump.

While such a move might be good for those Democrats who hate former President Donald Trump with a passion, it likely wouldn’t be so good for American gun owners, gun makers and gun sellers. Here’s why.

The most likely replacement for Biden would be Vice President Kamala Harris. While her last run for the presidency (2020) was a disaster, she is more fanatic about banning firearms than even Biden.

Many TTAG readers will likely recall that Harris has not only expressed a desire to ban common semi-auto rifles that gun-ban advocates call “assault weapons,” but she has also spoken in favor of confiscating those firearms from the millions of Americans who legally own and use them. At a presidential campaign event in 2019, then-candidate Harris said that confiscation of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms like the AR-15 was “a good idea.”

Promoting a forced “buyback” program (of course, the government can’t “buy back” something it never owned), Harris stated, “We have to work out the details—there are a lot of details—but I do… We have to take those guns off the streets.”

She’s also equally as big of supporter as President Biden of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). Signed by President George W. Bush in 2005, after anti-gun groups filed several frivolous lawsuits against American firearms manufacturers in an attempt to eliminate gun control by bankrupting the industry, the PLCAA was designed to shield manufacturers from liability for acts committed by those who used their products illegally. Now Harris and Biden misrepresent the law by lying that the gun industry is the “only industry in America that has immunity.”

Last year, Harris was tabbed with being the top dog of the gun-ban aspect of Biden’s campaign. As her first order of business she gave a speech at a Gun Violence Awareness Day event in Springfield, Illinois. And as usual, she said a lot of the same old, misleading things that she and Biden have been saying for years.

It’s no surprise that Harris trotted out the new gun-banner buzz phrase in her first speech as campaign gun-ban queen. “The number one cause of death for the children of America is gun violence.”

Such a statement would make you think that your 4-year-old daughter or 8-year-old granddaughter is more likely to die by gunfire than any other possible way. And that’s exactly what Harris and other gun-ban proponents want you to think.

In reality, being killed by gunshot is the number one cause of death of Americans ages 1 to 19, with the vast majority of those murders and suicides occurring among 16- to 19-year-olds. According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, leading causes of death for what most people consider “children” are: ages 1-4, accidents, then congenital malformations; ages 5-9, accidents, then cancer; and ages 10-14, accidents, then suicide.

Aside from Harris, the other two most-talked-about Biden replacements are Hillary Clinton and Gavin Newsom—both themselves gun-ban advocates who have put infringing on Americans’ Second Amendment rights at the top of their to-do list their entire careers.

Clinton, of course, has never seen a gun ban she doesn’t like, and when she ran for president in 2008 and 2016 was likely the most anti-gun candidate to ever seek the office. As Clinton wrote in her book “Living History” in 2003, “Bill and I announced a proposal to raise the legal age of handgun ownership to 21, and limit purchases of handguns to one per month.”

In 2015, she went as far as to slur semi-auto rifle owners as dangerous extremists when she said of those people, “We cannot let a minority of people—and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people—hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

As for California Gov. Gavin Newsom, he heads the state with the most restrictive firearms laws—and also, not so ironically, the most “active shooter” incidents in 2023, according to the FBI. Newsom also has never met a gun control scheme he hasn’t liked, as attested by his continual efforts to foist more infringements upon the gun-owning citizens of California.

In the end, either of the three is probably more elected at this point than feeble-minded Biden, who proved his inability to govern last Thursday night. No matter who ends up being on the ballot opposite Trump in November, however, he or she will be a devout gun-ban advocate whose wholehearted efforts—and critical judicial appointments—will work to further undermine the right to keep and bear arms. That’s not the kind of person I can support.

    • Calls from democRats for biden to step aside are nothing more than an attempt to cover elderly abuse. The democRat Party knew for years biden was slip sliding away and all of a sudden democRats act shocked and amazed over biden’s debate performance. Replacement names that exclude mamala continue to be tossed around following the shocking, “sudden illness of joe biden.”

      Bottom line…The democRat Party owns elderly abuse like the party owns the Legacy of Slavery.

      TRUMP 2024.

  1. “We have to take those guns off the streets.”

    Short answer: No
    Longer answer: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

    BTW, my guns are not “on the streets.” Shall we discuss those who have them on the streets?

  2. harris should be in prison. She has aided in the overthrow of the .gov by helping to prop a dementia riddled, drug fed figurehead up while co conspirators have taken over the running of the country.

    At the very least she is guilty of abusing the elderly.

    • since we’re taxing people who use the 2nd amendment, then they’re gonna charge people to vote.

  3. The disarmament crowd always talks crap about confiscation as some sort of public safety or health issue. Seems none of them can understand the truth. That no law ever written and no ban or other restrictions have ever or ever will prevent those with evil or criminal intent from finding weapons to give themselves an advantage over their potential or intended victims. Laws only give a somewhat legal method to exact retribution or punishment on those who transgress and break those laws.

    • I really doubt Kamaltoe will be presidon’t. #1 everyone despises her. #2 no one would obey her edicts. #3 she’s a brain dead simpleton. It’s “possible” but not probable the 25th amendment will come into play but that’d be incomprehensible to Dims unless it was Trump. Meanwhile the world burns🙄Stay locked n loaded.

      • Why wouldn’t they like her? We’ve spent almost 4 years with a dementia patient in the office what difference does a cackling clown make to the people running things?

  4. Banning and kicking doors are two different things.
    I’m not surrendering my guns.
    Republicans ALWAYS stab us in the back.
    The Laws will be passed regardless of who’s in office.
    Decide NOW what you’re prepared to do.
    Molon labe

    Signed Old Army Vet

    • “Take the guns now and due process later”

      Where have we heard this coming out of a Republican President’s lips?

      • Politically inept azzholes consume demoCrap and regurgitate it on the behalf of the democRat Party….You and your ilk have a choice between candidates who are as different as night and day. The time for gun talking crybabies is over…Make up your damned minds which candidate you fully support otherwise you two are the backstabbers you claim to disdain.

  5. Fortunately voters seem to despise her almost as much as gun owners. The only way Kamala becomes the candidate is if Joe waits until after the convention to die; if he expires before the convention the party will nominate someone they think they can get into office.

      • Pretty much equally, believe it or not.

        With the *BREAKING NEWS* from the supreme court Trump is immune from prosecution for official acts, the Leftist Fascist Scum ™ are well and truly screwed. If he is most likely elected, he can revenge on his enemies officially, all he wants.

        Time to weaponize the legal system against THEM for once… 😉

  6. From all appearances, it looks like the left is self-destructing in this country, like it is in Europe, mostly because of the lie of identity politics and “equity.” I’m hopeful, but wary. When the left gets desperate, they tend to do things like unilaterally seize power, an act usually accompanied by violence.

    Stay sober and keep an eye out.

    • Don’t get your hopes up. Ballot Harvest Scams in the Big Blue Cities can easily give democrats the White House AND Congress.
      Four or five SCOTUS Justices would be quickly impeached and replaced by far-left fanatics. Cuban Style Gun Control would soon follow…….Australian Style is too lenient.

  7. Kamala is about as 100% pure poo sandwich as it gets while FDJT is only about 5-10% adulterated dog doo content. This makes a Donno sandwich much more palatable to chew and the added poo hardly gets stuck in your teeth at all.

    • Remember four years ago when Joe, the Master Debater, sounded much like our own grelber Debbie W, hurling insults at the rest of his party’s candidates?… he was the ONLY one ready to straighten out the mess of the Far Right, and everyone else was totally incompetent at ANYTHING – then picked the most obnoxious one as VP and most of the rest as cabinet heads.
      A tangled web indeed…

      • Debbie Duncebag doesn’t matter. She’s just an imbecilic distraction. Zero times zero is always zero.

  8. We got dementia patient for a president, whos wife appears to be in charge, then we got Harris who appears to not be in charge of anything.
    Russia, China, Iran and all the rest must be laughing at us.

    • They are, along with France, Italy, Sweeden, Holland, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Thailand, Laos, The United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Turkey, Afghanistan, well pretty much the whole world except Ukraine right now.

  9. Given the debate debacle and the aftermath, I can easily imagine Vice President Harris grabbing a gun from a Secret Service agent and using said gun to assassinate President Biden so that she can become President.

    This shit show would be hilarious if not for the fact that it is President Biden who theoretically has his finger on the nuclear button. Of course General Mikey and the other traitorous Joint Chiefs of Staff have probably implemented “safeguards” to limit Presidential authority. Such safeguards are justified, except for the obviously inevitable time lag that would make America more vulnerable to a nuclear first strike.

    • “Given the debate debacle and the aftermath,”
      Biden’s responses during the debate revolved around a 3 letter word, “lie”.
      Biden’s main rebuttal revolved around his saying former President Trump was a liar.
      Much of the aftermath has also been focused on former President Trump being a liar.
      This seems to be the sum total of their arguments. It seems they have no logical arguments and are accusing former President Trump of doing/acting as they do.

      I saw this earlier today:
      How many democrats does it take to change a light bulb?
      None, Biden tells them he fixed it and they all sit around in the dark and applaud.

    • Finger on the Nuclear button.
      ” Jill, Jill, can you remember where I put the key, I thought it was, where was. Now damn it, did I wear the blue pants yesterday?”

  10. Need we worry?
    “It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day.”
    “I am here, standing here on the northern flank, on the eastern flank, talking about what we have in terms of the eastern flank.”
    “I need to be reminded of the importance of the “passage of time”
    “I have a motto: I drink- I eat and drink ‘no’ for breakfast.”
    “Talking about the significance of the passage of time, right, the significance of the passage of time, so when you think about it, there is great significance to the passage of time.”
    “This virus, it has no eyes, and yet it knows exactly how we see each other and how we treat each other.”
    “We are announcing today also that we will assist Jamaica in COVID recovery by assisting in terms of the recovery efforts in Jamaica that have been essential to I believe what is necessary to strengthen not only the issue of public health but also of the economy.”
    “We have the ability to see what can be, unburdened by what has been, and then to make the possible actually happen.”
    “Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So basically, that’s wrong.”

    • I generally think of Joe as stupid, but whoever chose Kuntala the Human Insurance Policy as VP is a genius.

      • “…whoever chose Kuntala the Human Insurance Policy as VP is a genius.”

        Damn straight, get rid of Joe, and she’s in.

        Get rid of her, and the Black vote evaporates. They are stuck with literally senile Joe.

        Sane democrats who saw what a train wreck Biden really is will not bother to vote in November.

        I just love it when a plan comes together… 🙂

        • Thank you, but you’re being far too generous to the Dems. I won’t say none are sane, but there is no longer a significant percentage who care more about electing the best candidate than keeping their handout machine. Kuntala is there to keep our side from getting any notions about impeachment, 25A, etc..

  11. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold up.
    The media has been locked step reassuring me for years that Joe is sharper than ever and they’d never lie. The medias whole job is speaking truth to power not holding water for power over truth.

    What’s this conspiracy garbage you’re peddling about less than stellar fitness?

    • Right? At this point, the scandal isn’t that we have a puppet in the White House. We understood that in 2020. The scandal is that the media has been lying to everyone about it, right up until the debate.

      Now that people have seen the truth with their own eyes, will they finally stop listening to the news/social media (IC)?? They’ve only been on the wrong side of every major story for the past eight years.

      • Don’t hold your breath on that hope… the very next day the MSM was running a puff piece on old Joe, his superpowers back in full working order and ready to take on the world.
        Abe Lincoln musta’ been right about fooling SOME of the people ALL of the time, as his reelection coffers gained over $30M within a matter of hours.

          • … wrong – Abe Lincoln’s famous quote was ” you can fool some of the people all of the time; all of the people some of the time – but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time “.
            P T Barnum afterward quipped
            ” You can fool most of the people most of the time ” , at about the same time that he declared ” There’s a sucker born every minute “.
            … and how does Mark N. know your wife anyway ?

          • CCP ? … what about the Burisma payouts to Hunter and The Big Guy, pretty much the gift that keeps giving and why we’re shoveling money and materiels into Yoo-Crane

      • The older I get and the more I see of the media I wonder if they’ve ever told the truth about anything.

        Decades of wrong info, omitted info, disinfo, shit like presenting video game footage as actual events, claiming to be live when pre recorded or claiming to be on location when sitting in a studio.

        If they’ve ever said one true thing it was likely by accident or it happened to support some larger narrative they were pushing at the time.

        No body should blindly trust any news media. All this Cronkite, Murrow nostalgia of a less dishonest bygone era is predicated on that era actually being honest and I seriously doubt it was any less dishonest than today. We just couldn’t communicate and check on a large enough scale at the time to prove it.

        • Yellow journalism and the journalism titans of a century+ ago all but confirm it has always been controlled narrative and unless steps were taken to destroy centralized banking I assume those in power were at best controlled opposition unless proven otherwise.

        • In the former USSR the main media outlets were Pravda and Izvestia, translated as The Truth and The News.

          A long running joke was there is no news in the truth and no truth in the news.

        • The media has only been influenced by Other Agency since WW2. They’ve been influenced by business interests since the beginning of time. It’s just much more overt these days. People are so lost, partisan, etc. that they don’t seem to care.

          The IC was meeting with social media companies every week in the lead up to the 2020 election to suggest they should suppress so-called “classic Russian disinformation” which happened to really benefit one of the candidates. No one cares. So they placed a senile puppet in charge of the most powerful country in the world. No big deal. A few people suddenly notice that something isn’t right four years later.

        • “If they’ve ever said one true thing it was likely by accident or it happened to support some larger narrative they were pushing at the time.”

          ^^^^THIS!^^^^

    • “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold up.
      The media has been locked step reassuring me for years that Joe is sharper than ever and they’d never lie.”

      Time for us to constantly remind them of that rub their nose in it from here on out… 😉

        • It will be different this time comrade. The last time was not true communism. Etc etc throw enough money and perceived power at weak people and they will do what they are asked without relevant resistance.

  12. “The most likely replacement for Biden would be Vice President Kamala Harris.” Oh BS/drivel –

    There is zero chance the cackles will replace Joey as POTUS candidate with Kamel. That in the last couple days the demtards have been rallying around the Faux one just shows how weak their “bench” is. – Michael, Hellery, Nitwit Newsome. But to install one off them requires their machine to totally throw out all respect or their dysfunctional nomination process to date. THAT is their main problem.

    • And the only way Uncle Joe gets replaced is either by voluntarily stepping aside or expiring – and if he did either before the convention that would be opening the door to a replay of the Summer of Love right in the convention hall, flaming barricades and all. The money people in charge will not let that happen even if they have to pull another sequel to Weekend at Bernie’s with Uncle Joe as the title character. After the convention? Anything goes, but Her Royal Highness, Princess Kamala is probably the least likely choice – and who won’t revel in the sweet, sweet irony of DEI hire KH being replaced by her if he was any whiter he’d be transparent “buddy” Gavin!

  13. Until the Greatest President America has or ever will have voluntarily disqualifies himself will we will be blessed to have Joseph Robinett Biden as President again.
    ,,,,,,,,,
    I broke the fancy faux Ivory grips on my faux 1873 last night spinning it like Johnny Ringo on Tombstone. Flew out of my hand and landed on the uncarpeted floor just right.
    Crack 😢
    I’ve got a plank of old black walnut that I salvaged from a barns hay loft built in 1899.

  14. “…feeble-minded Biden…”

    SCOTUS, in today’s Trump decision, quoting in part one of The Federalist Papers:

    “The purpose of a ‘vigorous’ and ‘energetic’ Executive, they thought, was to ensure ‘good
    government,’ for a ‘feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government.’”

  15. Under Da Gubernator Arnie, the state passed a law that required all new pistols have microstamping ability, once the technology for printing unique identifiers in two places on a cartridge became “generally available.” A bright young man invented a method to imprint a number on the primer with a code engraved on the tip of the firing pin. It was experimental, and the legibility of the numbers left on the primer deteriorated rapidly. However, by engineering the inventor’s waiver of his patent, the tech was certified by none other than Kamala that the technology complying with the statute (which it did not) was generally available. As of that date in 2013, there were no new semiauto pistols on the California market except for those models that were already on the Roster and were grandfathered in. However, the law further provided that any material changes in a rostered firearm was disqualifying absent incorporation of microstamp technology. We were stuck with Glock Gen IIIs, and Colt suddenly departed the scene.

    We will never forgive, we will never forget.

  16. Everyones mission this fall is to make sure every gun store puts out flyers demanding customers vote Republican the entire ticket.

  17. Getting so tired of the scare tactics offered by BOTH parties. No one is coming for our guns, there are simply too many of us to attempt it. Kamala will NOT become the candidate for president, even the democrats don’t want her, so a deal would be made should Biden admit he’s not medically fit for service. The odds are split between Newsome and Michelle, perish the thought.

  18. What is the point of this article, besides clickbait? Does the author think that gun buffs are thinking “Biden’s a creep, but Kamala and Newsom are A-OK?”
