Joe Biden: 'Nobody Says You Can Have a Magazine With 100 Clips In It'

Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden thinks big scary boom-boom guns are really bad and you probably shouldn’t have them.

Especially a “magazine with a hundred clips in it.” You definitely shouldn’t have one of those.

“I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a magazine with 100 clips in it,” Biden blabbered, before quickly correcting, “100 bullets in it.”
 


Of course, nothing in the Second Amendment says you can’t have a magazine with 100 bullets in it. In fact, it doesn't say one word about what you can or can't have, or require that you justify, register, or otherwise explain anything about your firearm choices.

But, details.

Biden, who has at times sought to differentiate himself from his fellow Democratic presidential candidates with more progressive plans to confiscate Americans’ guns, announced a plan in late October to offer to “buy back” legally owned “assault rifles” (to be defined by the government, of course) or force owners to “register” those firearms with the federal government.

According to Biden’s campaign website, the plan gives those who “possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.”
