President Joe Biden’s obsession with gun rights advocates using F-15 jet fighter aircraft surfaced again during a speech on Tuesday, as he suggested “brave right-wing Americans use the warplanes to “fight against the country.”
“And for those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping America – keeping America’s independent and safe [sic], if you want to fight against the country, you need an F-15,” Biden said. “You need a something a little more than a gun.”
The line received a smattering of light, nervous laughter from the audience as the president said “No, I’m not joking, think about this. Think about the rationale we use.”
Biden’s obsession with gun bans and equating guns with F-15s and nuclear weapons frequently surfaces when he discusses the 2nd Amendment.

The President did not appear to clarify his remarks at any point during the speech to condemn insurrection and rebellion. By contrast, Republicans were quick to condemn Biden’s insurrectionist and inflammatory remarks.
Congressional candidate Joe Kent (R-WA) stated on Twitter, “Pure provocation. We don’t need or want violence, we are going to defeat this regime at the ballot box, this is what they fear the most, that’s why are they are trying to provoke us. Don’t take the bait, engage at every level of the political process !”
Biden committed another trademark gaffe on Tuesday as he urged a crowd of Democrat supporters to vote for the wrong candidates in the Pennsylvania Senate and gubernatorial elections.
“Please, please, elect the Attorney General in the Senate,” Biden said to raucous applause from the crowd, which was apparently unaware of the fact that Democrat state AG Josh Sapiro is running for governor.
“Elect that big ol’ boy to be governor,” Biden said of John Fetterman, who is currently running for the U.S. Senate.
Biden and the crowd’s ignorance about the candidates running in Pennsylvania was the subject of much social media uproar on the Republican side of the aisle on Tuesday.
