Joe Biden tried to address the rise in violent crime this week. In a barely comprehensible statement, he tried to blame crime on guns, rather than criminals.
To make matters worse, he then rambled into a bizarre tangent about the government having nuclear weapons.
Is this really the best he can do?
Biden Reminds Gun Owners the Government Has Nuclear Weapons
Speaking from the East Room of the White House Wednesday afternoon, President Joe Biden re-introduced his extreme gun control agenda, advocating for a ban on modern sporting rifles and reminding lawful gun owners that the federal government has nuclear weapons.
“Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government,” Biden said. “If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”
Biden also falsely stated that the Clinton era ban on modern sporting rifles, better known as the assault weapons ban, reduced crime. A 2004 Department of Justice funded study from the University of Pennsylvania Center of Criminology concluded the ban cannot be credited with a decrease in violence carried out with firearms. The report is titled “An Updated Assessment of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban: Impacts on Gun Markets and Gun Violence, 1994-2003.”

This was another strange moment.
BIDEN: "No one needs to have a weapon that can fire over 30, 40, 50, even up to 100 rounds, unless you think the deer are wearing kevlar vests or something."

Are we supposed to take this man seriously?
