Since February 8th, Joe Biden’s poll numbers as a Democrat candidate have been in a tailspin. On February 10th, he lost his lead in the polls entirely, and now there’s speculation about when he’ll drop out. Some people are begging him to do it now.
Of course, sometimes we wonder who will provide the entertainment when he’s gone? He’s certainly provided some hilarious moments on the campaign trail — particularly when he talks about gun control.
“Say It Isn’t So Joe” never fails to demonstrate his complete illiteracy on the subject of firearms. We can’t say for sure if this is why his poll numbers tanked, but last week before his disastrous New Hampshire primary, Biden complained at a rally that children today are taught active shooter drills in school, claiming it is “because we’re unwilling to have a rational policy that says you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.”

As Becket Adams wrote for the Washington Examiner, There is no such thing as a weapon that takes 20, 30, 40, or 50 “clips.” An AR-15-style rifle takes a single magazine, which normally holds up to 30 rounds of ammunition. Though some may object to such clarifications as "gunsplaining," it is not too much to ask that those who would take away or limit others' Second Amendment rights at least understand the basics of firearms.
But wait, there’s more! (There always is.)
To Joe Biden, basically any firearm that has an “A” in its descriptor is scary and you don’t need it. Yep, according to Joe, the best-selling rifle in the country, your AR-15, is a WEAPON OF WAR.

His general confusion notwithstanding, perhaps the most disturbing Biden opinion is his general view of the citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms — and the government’s power to subjugate those who would vote them into office.
“Those who say, ‘The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots’ — a great line. Well, guess what: The fact is, if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles. There's no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you if you’re worried about the government knocking down your door.”

Well, that’s comforting, isn’t it?
Becket says, it’s "embarrassing to see a man who lived through the Vietnam War, the Soviets’ unsuccessful campaign in Afghanistan, and the Iraq War laugh off the idea of an armed insurrection rebuffing the world’s most advanced and best-equipped military."
And last but not least, Biden seems to forget it was a somewhat ragtag band of regulars and militiamen who managed to take down one of the world's greatest military forces and thereby create the country he so badly wants to lead.
You want votes, Joe? Molon Labe!
