Breitbart News reports that President Joe Biden just made a massive admission against interest, one that significantly undermines his and his fellow Democrats’ anti-Second Amendment agenda.
What makes the situation even worse for Biden is that the admission was caught on camera.

It came during the speech that Biden gave in Washington, D.C. on Friday to the National Education Association, the largest teachers’ union in the United States.
“Think about it,” Biden said. “What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for? It’s an assault weapon designed to kill people, to defend America, to defend people.”
Indeed, it is. At this point, Biden may have realized his mistake as he stumbled through his next sentence before quickly moving past the issue.
“But folks, look, we’re just, we’re just, we’re, we’re just way out of hand. I’ve taken on the NRA [National Rifle’s Association], and I’ve beat them before, and I plan on doing it again.”
It’s clear what Biden was trying to do: He was trying to continue the anti-Second Amendment push that he and his fellow Democrats have made since he entered the White House.
At several points, Biden has vowed to ban “assault weapons.” He made the vow again recently, during the 60 Minutes interview.
There, Biden claimed that “there is no rationale” for owning such weapons as AK-47s and AR-15s. “The NRA continuing to push the sale of assault and semiautomatic weapons is bizarre,” Biden said.
As Biden himself pointed out on Friday, though, there is a very good reason for people to own such weapons, namely self-defense. As Center for Security Policy’s Kyle Shideler tweeted afterward Biden’s comment on Friday, “Biden accidentally stumbles into the meaning of the 2nd amendment.”
It just goes to show that the political left doesn’t operate in logic: it operates on emotion. As soon as they try to venture into logic, it’s only a matter of time before they contradict themselves.
