Biden Says ‘Bingo’ When Asked If Gun Owners Should Be Worried He’s ‘Going To Come For’ Their Guns

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday he supports a national buyback program for so-called assault weapons, while acknowledging that he is “going to come” for those types of firearms if elected president.

“So to gun owners out there who say well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper said in an interview with Biden.

“Bingo,” the Democrat interjected, “you’re right if you have an assault weapon.”

“The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period,” continued Biden, who was interviewed about two mass shootings over the weekend that left 31 people dead in El Paso and Dayton.

Biden, who is leading the Democratic presidential field in polling, did not describe what he considers an assault weapon. The term is often misused by proponents of gun control to describe semi-automatic firearms.

“Look, the Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own. You can’t buy a bazooka. You can’t have a flame thrower. The guys who make these arguments are the people who say, ‘The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots. We need the protection against the government.”

Biden went on to describe how he would go about rounding up guns if he’s elected president, but stopped short of saying that federal authorities would enter peoples’ homes to as part of a confiscation program.

“How would you deal with all the assault weapons that are already out there that people have?” Cooper asked.

“What I would do is try to — I would institute a national buy back program and I move in the direction of making sure that that in fact was what we tried to do, get them off the street,” said Biden.

Cooper asserted that the proposal was not the same as confiscation programs.

“That’s not walking into their homes, knocking on their doors, going through the gun cabinets,” Biden said.

He added: “Right now there is no legal way to deny them the right if they legally purchased them but we can in fact make a major effort to get them off the street and out of the possession of people.”

  1. You have offered no proposal to take guns out of criminals’ hands. Truth is you can’t keep them off the streets just like drugs. In 2017 more than 72,000 people overdosed. You just want our guns so we won’t be able to defend our selfs when your socialistic government fails.

  2. Why are you posting on a site for Macular Degeneration? What does that have to do with anything? And the way the headline reads it implies ALL GUNS which is a LIE. I don’t even think he said anything like what the article says. Why is right wingers have to distort, out right lie, and threaten? Cowards? Bullies? Can’t win? Don’t care about people?

  3. No Joe the second amendment does not say you can or can not have a bazooka. It say’s The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon. The N.F.A. Is a violation of the second amendment.

  4. LaQuita: I’m one of those “right wingers” that has read and ‘learned’ what the Constitution is and means. If you choose to ‘label’ me, let’s add that I am also a proud American and defender of (all) of the freedoms and rights offered by My Constitution and laws of this Great Nation.

    ENFORCEMENT of laws already approved by congress would negate the majority of incidents, however, if criminal intent is present that individual will fine an alternative. Surely you’re aware of the stabbings, cars etc that have killed!

    You indicate “not all” guns. If I’m right, you are believing that ‘only’ an assault weapons are being considered….Well, a mere .22 caliber can kill …So I ask, “WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION of an assault weapon?

    It’s quite obvious that you care about people and are willing to share your opinions…This IS good. I think, (for what it’s worth) that you have the energy and willingness to find solutions, but need to use multiple sources to form your opinions. Well informed opinions go a long ways in convincing others

    take care

  5. Why don’t you just make it automatic death penalty if one commits a crime with an assault rifle. That’s gun control. Taking them from law abiding citizens is dictator Hitler type of government.
