Dark Brandon Again Threatens Gun Owners with Military Hardware

Linkedin Share

As the Democratic Party continues to come up with new ways to antagonize gun owners, President Joe Biden is employing his “Dark Brandon” shtick once again, threatening to use military weapons against those who would choose to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Biden, when speaking about the most intrinsic tenet of the Second Amendment itself, seemed to suggest that any would-be US usurpers would be targeted by fighter jets.

Speaking at the National Action Network’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast in Washington, Biden appeared to mock his conservative colleagues.

“I love my right-wing friends who talk about the tree of liberty is water of the blood of patriots,” he said. “If you need to work about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s. You don’t need an AR-15.”

The quote Biden refers to dates back to Thomas Jefferson, who wrote in a letter, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.” Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and America’s third president.

This isn’t the first time that the President has made this threat.

Biden has previously said gun-rights advocates need a much bigger arsenal of weapons to take on the federal government. In July 2021, he said: “You need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons” during a White House speech to outline his plan to combat gun violence.

In the same speech, he also falsely claimed there have always been limits on the Second Amendment.

“The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”

This ridiculous and inflammatory rhetoric is dangerous, particularly as our nation remains heavily divided and on the precipice of another presidential election cycle.
