The emergence of former New York City Mayor Micheal Bloomberg into the 2020 presidential race has been seen by many as a referendum on the quality of candidates that have so far been thrust into the American voters’ faces.
Bloomberg is a bit of a centrist Democrat, meaning that his entry into the race is a fairly direct shot at de facto frontrunner Joe Biden, who has been steadily slipping in the polls to begin with. Not only has Biden had to contend with multiple accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior, but his advanced age and inability to control what he’s saying has, at times, saddled the Democratic voter with a tough choice: Turn hard to the left by supporting a socialist-esque candidate like Liz Warren, or hope Biden can hold it together long enough to defeat Donald Trump in the general election.
After the former Vice President’s latest rambling nonsense, that latter option seems to be fading fast.
During a Concord, New Hampshire, campaign stop Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden criticized the ownership of magazines that hold “100 clips.”
Ironically, leftists often refer to ammunition feeding devices as “clips” instead of magazines, but Biden used the word “clips” in place of bullets. He realized his mistake and corrected himself.
CSPAN published video from the campaign stop, where Biden said, “I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a magazine with 100 clips in it.” He quickly added, “100 bullets in it.”
Biden has been a stanch proponent of stricter gun control laws for some time, even going so far as to support the idea that victims of gun violence should be able to take legal action against firearms manufacturers.
