If You Thought Rep. Swalwell's Threat of Nuclear Weapons to Enforce Gun Control Was An Outlier

2/10/20 TownHall quoting Joe Biden:
"Those who say 'the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots'–  a great line. Well, guess what? The fact is if you’re going to take on the government you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you if you're worried about the government knocking down your door," Biden told a group of supporters in New Hampshire on Sunday. "And so, it's bizarre. We never said you could own any weapon at all from the beginning. You can't own a machine gun. You can't own a bazooka. You can't own an M1 tank, no matter how much money you have. You can limit the kind of weapons that can be owned."
Someone who learned nothing from Afghanistan.

And of course at the time of the writing of the Bill of Rights many artillery pieces and warships were in private hands. And today many citizens own machine guns, tanks and other armored vehicles.

I'm not sure if they are still for sale but back in 2015 $50,000 could get you a T-72 tank.

Afghanistan,or Vietnam. The Chinese I believe used to call it death
by a thousand cuts.
And by the way, Smokin' Joe Biden, we actually should be able to own and carry the exact same personal weapons that a military person could carry. An individual soldier would not carry an M-1 tank, but he or she would carry a select fire M-4, they could own an RPG or such other missile platforms, or a grenade. Those to me constitute arms, in a literal sense. And that is what the founders were speaking to, in the 2nd amendment.
I know that we are possibly at some sort of a crossroads, in regards to gun rights. And how our rights end up ultimately going to be determined by us gun owners ourselves. So we are the ones who need to get out the vote, and that means that we cannot afford to be lazy, and indifferent. Because you can bet that Bloomberg, Soros and the rest of them will not sit on their hands and just wait and see what happens with gun control.

I think you can still get armored cars. With a broomstick or water pipe sticking out of the front of the turret, but still . . .
