WaPo Hits Biden With Four Pinnochios Over Second Amendment Remark

The left-leaning Washington Post hit President Biden with four Pinocchios over his recent statement that said the Second Amendment bars Americans from owning cannons.

According to The Hill:

“And I might add: 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,” Biden said during a speech on gun violence in America last week.

The Post, citing experts on the Second Amendment and historical documents, reported Biden’s assertion about cannons relative to the right to bear and keep arms in the United States is demonstrably false.

“Everything in that statement is wrong,” David Kopel, research director and Second Amendment project director at the Independence Institute told the Post, adding that after the Second Amendment was ratified in 1791 “there were no federal laws about the type of gun you could own, and no states limited the kind of gun you could own.”

“Some readers might think this is a relatively inconsequential flub. But we disagree,” fact checker Glenn Kessler wrote. “Every U.S. president has a responsibility to get American history correct, especially when he’s using a supposed history lesson in service of a political objective. The president’s push for more gun restrictions is an important part of his political platform, so he undercuts his cause when he cites faux facts.”

Biden has made the false claim about the Second Amendment before, first making the remark during an interview ith Wired Magazine.

    1. Constitutional attorney clarified the debate as to whether the Second Amendment protects the rights of states to keep a militia, but does not protect the right of people “to keep and bear arms”. “If that is true it is the best kept secret from the 18th Century because there is not one scrap of writing that is known today, from that period (1787 – !791) when the Constitution and Bill of Rights were debated and ratified, with any such statement verifying that was the intent of the Second Amendment. AND “The conclusion is thus inescapable that history, concept and wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every commentator and court in the first half century after its ratification indicated that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner.” Report of the Sub-committee, On the Constitution of the Committee On the Judiciary, United States Senate 97th Congress, second session (February, 1082) (SuSoc#Yu.J89/2: AR515)
      This covers the Second Amendment completely. The reason the donkeys want gun control: Saul Alinsky’s “Rule for Radicals”
      8 Levels of Control to a Socialized State #4 Gun Control: Remove the ability to defend themselves from the GOVERNMENT. That way you are able to create a police state.

      1. Excellent response, Anniedawn. I would offer that your one sentence that reads..”the right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner” is correct on one point….but it was also written so that we had unabated rights to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government (which would NOT be peaceful).

  1. Joe Biden has NEVER known (or admitted) the difference between his opinion and facts. The man is a walking, talking lie – just like the entire Democrat Part leadership in modern times. The Democrat Party of JFK would impeach Joe Biden in a heartbeat, and would unseat Nancy Pelosi in even less time. Democrats (used to be) and Democrats (nowadays) have nothing at all in common. The Democrat Party used to be pro American – not pro Communistic. It is time for the American people to get rid of the Democrat Party – for good!

    1. I was President of the Young Democrat Party of Fulton County Georgia on 1959. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jack Kennedy In his run for President. I assure you he would not be a Democrat today with the leftist attitude of the Democrats. Jack Kennedy was definitely anti Socialist. He was the last Democrat I voted for. Clinton was the only Democrat I considered voting for.

  2. Liar liar…….Prez’s pants on fire!
    What would Jo-Jo the clown with a emaciated brain know about the Constitution…….he was fondling and sniffing hair of the fairer sex the day his class studied it and he especially paid no attention to the first and second amendments! He wouldn’t know the difference between a cannon and a pellet gun and thinks no one has a constitutional right to own either plus he has made it obvious that anyone who disagrees with him should sit down, shut up and never be allowed to speak again! That about covers what he “knows” about the Constitution which is nothing!
    If Jo-Jo got a pinocchio for every lie he has told during his political career…..lined up end to end they would circle the globe multiple times….too many to comphrehend!
    We have ONLY 3 1/2 more years of being laughed at by planet earth!

  3. Joe Biden is a total IDIOT who has no clue what he is doing or talking about! He is an embarrassment to our Country and all Americans as well as the laughing stock of the world!!! Who in the heck elected this FOOL ….. Oh right, it was the corrupt Democrats with an illegally stolen/fraudulent election!!!

  4. Sniffy joe, the pervy piece of human waste, wouldn’t know the truth if it crawled down his lying damn throat. The more the babbling moron opens his lying mouth the deeper he digs the endless, bottomless pit for the socialists demonrats to fall into. If the eyes of country aren’t opened to this plague and pox infesting our country, it is truly doomed. It’s time all Americans WAKE UP to the absolute power wielded by an infestation that it’s sole purpose is to destroy the American way of life. And if we don’t do something about it soon we are DOOMED.
    when you go to the polls PLEASE vote straight Republican. We have to get these traitors out. And if that doesn’t work, well, theirs a lot more of us than them. And we don’t need nukes or tanks, we just stop the people who would send them.

    1. We can only hope that the lefts’ distain for the damage the corrupt, bumbling idiot has done to OUR country eventually outweighs their TDS and hatred for Trump.

  5. The Demon-Rat Sewer Critters were afraid that TrUSAmp was going to cause a War with everybody. Now look at what this A– Backwards A– Did! Launches a Missile Air Strike at Iran, Of all Places! China, Russia and the rest of the World sees his truth, He’s a Jackass First Class.

    1. President Trump was avoiding wars, “Peace through strength.” The leaders of countries knew they couldn’t push him around and manipulate him like they do Joe Biden. We have a poor leader now, the real scoffing is at his weakness and his failing health and mental facilities.

      1. The entire Democrat party has weak knees when it comes to dealing with foreign dictators and other foreign evil leaders! They cannot do enough to appease all who want to destroy our country because, they want America to become like other failed countries! What is wrong with this picture?

        1. The entire Democrat party with the exception of a few has totally abandoned their allegiance to the United States and work for a foreign agenda, its obvious by their policies. President Trump turned the Trade situation around, no more was the United States taken advantage of with unfair trade and extravagant import, export taxes, and we weren’t giving all these foreign countries a free ride who didn’t want to pay for our military protection, plus the borders were 100% improved with security and cooperation from the Border Patrol and Ice because they really worked for President Trump and his theme of protecting Americans first over illegal aliens. I hear you loud and clear.

  6. the ten added articles(aka) bill of rights,is meaningless to the dems and commies in our government
    they don’t even know what’s in it

  7. Biden is so afraid of the real Americans in this country. That his attempts to take our right to the 2A is nothing more than an effort to protect his worthless ass. It has nothing to do with crime and he knows it. The demonrats have been for decades whining about gun control. Claiming it’s the solution to stopping crime. But every city and state where guns are banned has some of the highest crime rates in the country. Now we know the socialists demonrats are terribly misguided, but they aren’t stupid. Their plan all along is to destroy the ability of the American people to overthrow a corrupt and unjust government which is exactly what you have now with the socialists takeover of our government. If their ever was a time for the people to rise up against this treason it is now. Make your voice be heard, Republican leaders that support the demonrats be forewarned, you will be ousted from your place on high and replaced by Conservative Christian Patriots. And demonrats, it would probably be best if packed your bags and moved to Russia or China or someplace where you socialists ideology is appreciated. Just leave and don’t come back. What sleepy joe believes is, a same as a remark made by King George 111.
    “you can’t adequately protect the rich and powerful without disarming the peasant. Peasant, to them that’s us.
    Vote straight Republican.

    1. The elites are lovers of themselves. They want a nation in which they all rule and thrive, and get rid of the people they think aren’t important, thats population control, and thats a dictatorship.

  8. Just look at that clown(sniffy joe) his pallid , putrid, face looks like its ready to melt. The coward is so ate up he doesn’t know where he is most of the time. And has nightmares of his demise. I’ve looked into the face of fear and it is his. I’d feel sorry for him if he was a dog. But he is just a puppet, and when his usefulness to the Democratic Party is over they will cut his strings. It’s time to concentrate on his VP. Cameltoe Harry. This corrupt bitch hasn’t a clue. She was the whore for a governor and fucked her way into the White House. Now the stupid cunt
    is the second most powerful piece of shit in the world. And all she can do is laugh when ever she gets a question that’s beyond her intellectual Capacity. That would be most of them. The snide ass wipe giggles and avoids simple yes or no questions. Between her worthless ass and sniffy, if brains where glass they couldn’t make a marble.
    vote Republican
    GOD bless the United States of America

    1. Its distressing to see that we now have a President who is as corrupt and immoral as the rest of this world. I wouldn’t leave the sniffer alone for one minute with my daughters.

    1. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:21. Many don’t want their lives exposed to God’s Light because they are afraid of what will be revealed. They don’t want to be changed, they don’t want the darkness in their lives exposed.

  9. biden doesn’t even know his own name let alone anything about our constitution…embarrassing to every American.

  10. I have heard about-and known a few-who would tell a lie, when the truth would be better, but I think he “takes the cake”!! If it comes out of his mouth–IT”S A LIE!!

  11. Gee, Too bad the liberal media is just catching on to who Biden is, they could have saved the country alot of trouble. Thats why the truth matters, and thats why the truth thrives with people who state the truth. No Holds Barred.

  12. He’s STUPID anyway , so doesn’t surprise me he doesn’t know the Constitution. Hell he doesn’t even know where he’s at !!!!!!
    Sad day for AMERICA, when this a-hole is PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !!!!!!!!

  13. The liberal media has lost ratings due to supporting Biden and his lies, and the rest of the swamp, guess they are just realizing that Biden will not bring them ratings or truth, but President Trump will and also Governor DeSantis. I believe that Newsmax is becoming the number One News, Information, and History station. I SEE many good Conservatives on NEWSMAX that I used to see on Fox. Newsmax is producing quality broadcasting and Historical events that young people are seeing for the first time giving them information they don’t get in public schools….. Especially how this country has been through so many struggles throughout history, but we always stated our allegiance to Almighty God. 2 Chronicles 36; 15-16. The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them again and again by His messengers of God…..but they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised his words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against them, until there was NO REMEDY. We need to heed the warnings of the scriptures on past history.
