Joe Biden is clearly in pre-presidential campaign phase as he makes the rounds on the television and political forum circuit.
And what comes most natural to him is having to put his foot in his mouth. We anticipate plenty of updates like this one in the coming months.
This week when asked about the Democrat position on gun control and the fact that Stephen Willeford stopped further bloodshed with an AR-15, Biden dropped an iconic foot-in-mouth response.
“The kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying.”
So, let’s get this straight.
If Biden had his way, Willeford would have had to rely on a handgun to stop Devin Kelley from killing more people, which would have been less accurate and would likely not have penetrated his body armor.
Smooth move, Joe, really smooth.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Former Vice President Joe Biden is a walking gaffe. When he’s not sticking his foot in his mouth, he’s saying non-sensical things, and it wasn’t any different when on the Today show he was asked about gun control.
Watch this and marvel at what he says:
Woman: How do you justify the Democratic view on gun control when the shooter was stopped by a man who was legally licensed to carry a gun?
Biden: Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying.
First of all, it should be noted that Stephen Willeford didn’t require a license for his rifle, but he was eligible to have a gun, unlike Devin Kelley.
Biden went on to say he was the author of the original “assault weapons” ban. Of course, had the law still been in place, the likelihood is, Kelley yet would have had a semi-automatic rifle and Willeford may not. As somebody who follows the law, if his weapon was banned, he might have had to confront Kelley with a handgun.
